I think Duster is coming in June from what I understand. Someone from the forum had sent an e-mail to customer care for the brouchure and got a reply that they will provide it by June,

Truely this wait is killing .... :(

Two things:
Best not to assume that June will bring the answers to our prayers. Who knows WHEN they're pulling the curtains and who knows WHAT they have on offer!

Funnily, the automated email sent to me immediately after I got the 'You will get your brochure in June' message had them asking me what product brochure I wanted!
Unprofessionalism, to say the least!

Not sure if it is a PS job. But I think just like Micra-Pulse, Nissan has plans to launch Duster in Nissan guise (maybe a notch higher price and spec wise). Had read about it on the net sometime back. Not sure of the reliability of the information though.

Nope, i don't think its the Nissan Xterra. Though both of them look quite similar, yet they are two different cars.

Just a random search took me to the below link: -

Nissan Duster

Cheers!

Some of us already have pointed out the booking of Duster with some dealers. Here is a news now:

Renault Duster Bookings Open - Launch In June 2012 In India

Good news, though i am tempted but am not sure if it would be wise to book without seeing it in flesh and doing a TD.

Most features are expected. But a few seem very interesting.

1. Music system with USB with Aux-in and Bluetooth connectivity -- BT figures so great!
2. Satellite audio -- really? tie up with whom since the only provider in india has shut down.
3. Phone control -- Whats that?

Am not really sure i want to believe this news. Am more willing to trust a member who's spoken to a renault dealer or the likes of motoroids. And booking amount before any idea of launch price seems unlikely. Would you bet your money that way?

These are just copied from the Duster webpage. They have split one sentence into two and this is the confused result.

Booking without a test drive requires a lot of confidence on the manufacturer. If we go by the engine spec given by the above link, "1.5 DCi motor that will produce 85 BHP" will be the diesel engine.
Do my fellow BHPians think this will be adequate?
Even our national diesel engine @ 1.3L produces 92 BHP on Linea.
I guess nothing can be really said until a test drive is completed.

Guys let's wait for Renault to announce final specifications, some blog copy pasting stuff from international websites is not a reliable source. Since Renault is planning to spec the Indian Duster with premium grade interiors(like they did for Logan), i have a reason to believe the Duster will come with the 109hp(or is it 108?) tune. Going by International reviews Duster in this state of tune is decently peppy to drive, expect it to be faster than Safari & Scorpio.
