I thought the duster was much smaller, in the picture it looks like the Koleos. anything on the cards from Hyundai or Ford (TN 19)?

However have no clue which car is this?

MODS: please merge thread if this car has been discussed in another thread!


Thanks

It is for sure the Duster, the Tail lamps and the Rear profile match the scoop on Autocar

Good Catch Sreeni

I also initially thought if this nule is from the Hyundai Stable, but the Tail lamps have proveed it wrong. Will be really suprised if Hyindai or Nissin come out with this basic tail lamp design.

This surely seems like Renault Duster undergoing some tests. Have a look at the picture here

Hey, I also saw this car near Kasi Theatre bridge, Chennai day before yesterday. I'm pretty sure that was Renault LOGO only.

duster no doubt! in the first pic, in comparison to the swift ahead of it, looks a lot bigger, but not bulky. In red has a lot a character. Were you able to make a pass, how does did it look in 3D?

The more I look at this baby.. the more I like it..
The more I pine for it.. the more I realize that it is very far far away
The more far away it seems, the more I try to forget it.

and then I see some new pics and the cycle starts again !

It is the Duster !

cool, If it's a Duster, I really liked the way he was zooming into the heavy traffic (due to mild tremors felt in Chennai). That drive was amazing.

Definitely Renault Duster. Look at the new India and UK specific horizontal grill in the front which was showcased in auto expo and the twin headlamps. And the rear too looks like a duster.

I did a comparo with Mahindra Scorpio dimensions. Its around .5cm broader in width, 20cm shorter in length and 15cm shorter in height than the Scorpio. Ground Clearance is 21 cms for 4x4 and 20.5 cms for 4x2 compared to 18 cms in Scorpio.

Definitely a capable offroader. Hope they launch the 4x4 version from day one and I'm going to buy a black one for sure .

This was very much how the side profile looked.

Yes, this car is a absolute stunner in looks.
He was driving quiet fast!
When I first saw in the rear view mirror immediately asked my friend to take out camera and click as many snaps as he can. However with 5 people on board my getz I was not able to be catch him

A test mule was spotted (SCOOP: Camouflaged Renault Duster spotted testing in Mandya) . It looks like the launch is around the corner and the official site is forecasting a June launch which most likely is correct. This information on June launch was added after the delay rumors in the media.
