Renault just officially announced that the company will bring in 2016 Renault Duster face-lift and two new versions of the Kwid at the Motor Show. While the new versions of Renault Kwid will be unveiled on 3rd February, the updated Duster will be showcased on February 4.

While Renault has not officially released what the variants of Kwid are, it is expected to be the 1.0L version and the AMT. These are also expected to get ABS and Airbags as standard.

The Duster desperately needs a change to its interiors. ABS & airbags are welcome. Also I wish the AWD one also comes with the AMT.

Why is Skoda not launching the new Rapid in India ?

Its been there in the EU since 2012.

Is it under so much of pressure of VW that it will kill its own identity.

Don't think so, as they had well timed launch for the Octavia & now Superb. Then why not this product ?

Can someone clarify this ?

Meanwhile FIAT is planning to launch (what looks like) an old model - the original Grande Punto. I believe they are thinking that since there are already so few on the road, people will really think of it as a new model

I hope the Duster facelift gets an automatic climate control atleast if not for complete interior upgrade.

Hello Karan, you are absolutely right.Even I was wondering the same. It was ideal time for Skoda to bring on the new Rapid. The car is such a looker and coupled with their good 1.5 TDi engine with DSG, it would have posed serious threat to the segment leader Honda City.
Moreover, Skoda would have completed their family look makeover. Only Rapid is left out of it as of now. Very hard to understand their strategy

Nissan should bring its SUV and Pickup trucks to India. At least show case them. OEMs should show their capabilities in terms of existing and new vehicles.

Here is an example from Nissan.
