The new Duster has been teased in a promotional video. For the model year 2022, the Duster is expected to have an updated interior. The drivetrain is likely to be the same, with no diesel on offer.
Dacia has released a promotional video, and it not only showcases its new logo but also teases the facelifted Duster. Dacia is a brand owned by the Renault Group, which also sells the Duster as the Dacia Duster in certain markets.
The video shows the upcoming 2022 Renault Duster in profile. We suspect that the new Duster will sport a new fascia with re-profiled bumpers. The video also gives us a glimpse of restyled tail lamps.
The exterior is likely to sport a few tweaks, while the interior is expected to see minor updates. The French carmaker is likely to change the dashboard details. Also, expect chrome or brushed aluminium inserts on the door cards as well. The infotainment is expected to come equipped with a new generation of operating systems. The Duster will continue to offer Apple Carplay and Android Auto.
Internationally, the Renault Dacia Duster is offered in diesel and petrol variants. The Indian model gets only a 1.3-litre turbo petrol engine, with a choice between a six-speed manual gearbox and a CVT. The facelift model will continue with the same powertrain options as the current Duster on sale.
Expect a marginal price hike of Rs 20,000 – 25,000. The 2022 Renault Duster will continue to rival the Nissan Kicks, Kia Sletos, Maruti Suzuki S-Cross, and Hyundai Creta. The current prices of the Duster range between Rs 9.86 and 14.25 lakh (ex-showroom).
