Re: Next-gen Renault Duster spied testing internationally ahead of debut

Evolution of Duster through generations!

Quote:
The all-new Dacia Duster looks more mature, aggressive, and has more presence, and is still a basic SUV for those looking for a higher vehicle to go from point A to B. It uses the CMF-B platform, hybrids engines. The Duster was Renault's second best-selling product in 2022.

Quote:
Production of the new Renault Duster will begin in Turkey next year, and the local factory will become the main production site for Export (Dacia Duster for Europe is produced in Romania).

By 2027, the French company aims to become a leader in the the turkish market, and plans to turn the local oyak-renault factory into a global export centre, for which more than 400m euros will be allocated.

Re: Next-gen Renault Duster spied testing internationally ahead of debut

The Duster 7 seater - what will it be like?

The key points of the large 7-seater SUV, a few months before its official reveal.

-2025 is the commercial launch schedule but it is expected to be presented before the end of the year.

- Compared to the Duster, which is 4.34 m long, the big brother will gain about twenty centimetres thanks to a more generous wheelbase and rear overhang.

- This more family-friendly model will benefit from a roomier trunk capable of accommodating up to seven passengers, as well as a more vertical tailgate window.

-The Bigster will likely inherit its smaller sibling's powertrains, and could add a plug-in hybrid, in the longer term

-Unsurprisingly, it will rely on the dashboard that appeared on the last generation of Duster.

-No sliding bench seat is planned in the second row

- The question remains as to which architecture has been chosen in third place. Will he be content with simple seats like on the Jogger or will he offer himself retractable folding seats under the floor?

Re: Next-gen Renault Duster spied testing internationally ahead of debut

Renault reveals the New Duster including all the details of the interior.

Quote:
Interestingly, the brand gave up the traditional diamond emblem on the front and opted to stamp it only on the rear and on the wheel hub, in addition to the interior.

Quote:
The dashboard is basically the same as in the Dacia version, but with Renault adaptation in the steering wheel and in the graphics of the digital instrument panel (which has 7 inches). In addition, there are exclusive seat coverings and door panels. The multimedia center is positioned at the top of the dashboard, tilted to the driver's side and a 10.1-inch screen
Quote:
Other general aspects of the design follow the same as the Dacia Duster, including the shape of the bumpers, headlights (even the light signature is the same), wheel design, trunk lid and etc. The overall measurements are also basically the same, including 4,343 mm in length, 1,810 mm in width, 1,656 mm in height, and 2,657 mm in wheelbase. In the trunk, it is possible to carry up to 472 liters.
Quote:
Mechanical details have not been revealed, but everything indicates that the sets will be the same as those announced by Dacia. That is, 1.6 Hybrid gasoline engines with 140 hp, 1.2 turbo with mild-hybrid system with 148 volts and 130 hp, and ECO-G 100 natural gas with 100 hp. In the 4x4 versions, the Duster offers a Terrain Control system with five driving modes: Auto, Snow, Mud/Sand, Off-Road and Eco.
With a Renault look, the Duster will be first produced in Turkey and sold both in the country itself and exported to regions of Africa and the Middle East. As for Europe, with the Dacia logo, the model is produced in Romania.

Re: Next-gen Renault Duster spied testing internationally ahead of debut

I am sold on the exteriors of the new Duster. The Interior too looks good, though not as premium as Creta or Seltos. With a competitive price, this would sell well.

Re: Next-gen Renault Duster spied testing internationally ahead of debut

The new Duster looks like the Defender of the segment. Looks a Body-Builder.

Hope Renault launches a Premium feel & safe version with maximum features which Indian buyers are accustomed to rather than a budget grade version that a few like.

There definitely is a market for rugged mini-SUV's and I hope this kills the duopoly of the Korean's.

The front looks so much better with Letters than the Diamond logo. Hope they continue with this lettering style in front during India Launch as well.
I wish they launch it sooner in India than the Diwali 2025 timeline (anticipated but never confirmed by Renault India)

Re: Next-gen Renault Duster spied testing internationally ahead of debut

New Duster at the 2024 Genva Motor Show.

- New Duster goes one step further and offers more performance thanks to the CMF-B platform
- New Duster improves its attack capabilities in 4x4 version
- New Duster opts for more sustainable materials and hybrid powertrains
-The front and rear guards are mass tinted. The fact that no paint is used is an advantage from an environmental point of view, but also an advantage for customers: even scratched or scratched, these protections never lose their original color.
- The underbody and wheel arch side guards, distinctive parts, front bumper triangles and rear bumper apron are made of a robust new material.
- The design of the interior does not forget the essential, i.e. the useful. Ergonomics have been particularly careful with a 10.1-inch central display located in the field of vision and oriented 10 towards the driver.
-The new automatic gearbox control, together with the HYBRID 140 engine, is particularly ergonomic. The steering wheel, with its two flat upper and lower parts, is very convenient to use, while at the same time facilitating access on board the vehicle.
- Inside, it in the contours of the air vents, whose surface forms a Y (Copper Brown in Extreme finish), and in the door panels where the Y extends around the armrests. In the center of the steering wheel, the Dacia logo replaces the brand name.
- Outside, the new Duster receives the Y-shaped light signature at the front and rear lights. This same Y is repeated in the pattern of the alloy wheels, whose shiny effect is obtained without chrome, when working the raw material.

New Duster is available with a 4x4 Terrain Control transmission that can be controlled via 5 riding modes:

AUTO: The transmission automatically distributes torque between the front and rear axles based on grip and speed.
SNOW: Optimizes trajectories on slippery roads thanks to specific ESC and Extended Grip settings
MUD/SAND: For riding on soft surfaces such as muddy or sandy roads.
OFF-ROAD: Offers the best off-road and rough road capabilities. It is very close in terms of performance to the current Duster's 4x4 lock mode, but it goes further by automatically and optimally distributing torque between the front and rear wheels depending on the grip conditions detected and the speed of the vehicle.
ECHO: It makes it possible to optimise fuel consumption by acting on the air conditioning and performance of the vehicle. It optimises the distribution of torque between the front and rear axles in the best possible way to limit fuel consumption while adapting to the grip conditions of the road.

Off-road ground clearance: 217 mm (measured between wheelbases) for the 4x4 version, at the best level on the market.

Even more favourable approach and departure angles for overcoming obstacles in the 4x4 versions, up to 31 at the front and 36, and a ventral angle of 24.

Descent trajectory control system. This system is especially useful when driving off-road or on steep slopes. In particular, it acts on the brakes to prevent the vehicle from being packed and thus ensure an adequate speed from 0 to 30 km/h. The system works in all gears of the gearbox, including reverse. The driver can no longer worry about the accelerator and brake pedals, and only attends to the steering wheel.

The 10.1-inch central display displays a lot of information that is particularly useful for off-road driving:

Right/left lateral tilt angle of the vehicle
Pitch angle for appreciating upward and downward slopes
Torque distribution between front and rear axles (4x4 version)

NEW HYBRID POWERTRAINS

Duster HYBRID 140. Adopted by Dacia at the beginning of 2023 in Jogger, the HYBRID 140 engine now arrives in the new Duster. It is based on proven and recognized technologies within Renault Group, consisting of a 1.6-litre, 4-cylinder, 94 hp petrol engine, two electric motors (a 49 hp engine and a high-voltage starter/generator) and an electrified automatic gearbox. It has 4 gears dedicated to the thermal block, as well as another 2 for the electric. This combined technology is made possible by the absence of a clutch.
Regenerative braking, coupled with the high energy recovery capacity of the 1.2 kWh (200 V) battery and the performance of the automatic gearbox, delivers up to 80% of city driving time in all-electric mode, consumption savings of 20% in the combined cycle and up to 40% in the urban cycle. In addition, the starting is systematically carried out in 100% electric mode.

Duster TCe 130. This engine arrives for the first time at Dacia, offering customers a first level of electrification. It combines a new-generation 1.2-litre 3-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine based on the Miller cycle (optimised performance and less pumping losses) with a 48V light hybridisation system. The latter supports the combustion engine during the start-up and acceleration phases, thus reducing average consumption and CO2 emissions by approximately 10%*.
It offers greater driving pleasure (repris, acceleration) than the current TCe 130 thanks to the boost provided by this system: the vehicle is more reactive and its handling smoother. Regenerative braking allows the 0.8 kWh battery to be recharged in a way that is completely imperceptible to the driver.

The TCe 130 is available with a 6-speed manual gearbox for the 4X2 and 4X4 versions.

Duster 100 ECO-G. Dacia, the undisputed leader in LPG in Europe, is the only manufacturer to offer petrol and LPG bi-carburetion in all its thermal models under the ECO-G label. The new Duster also benefits from the integration of this tried-and-tested technology into the original equipment, which guarantees safety and reliability.

While it may appear on the periphery that these companies (read GM, Ford, Peugeot, Harley Davidson, Nissan...) don't take the Indian market seriously, the truth is far from it. Most of the companies that enter India are disconcerted at the sheer perplexity of our idiosyncratic, finicky policies! This has resulted in some strange behaviors from even established global giants! Again I'm not elaborating on who... but if you're on TBHP, you should know!

The Indian market is just too complex. So are the automakers coming here (Just gander at their global portfolio). While some do a one hit wonder and reel from exhaustion, some just bank on their reliability ratings and cash on it, a few are happy to just chug along, without any clear vision, while others have drawn out elaborate plans but none seem to work out, and the bottom few contemplating on pulling the plug... This is their India story. But remember, 'fortune favors the bold'.
