Renault Duster is the most successful product in India by Renault and the recent increase in competition has overshadowed the Duster. With the BS6 the Duster does not come in AWD engine option and just the petrol Manual and CVT has left it with no winning edge over other cars in the segment. We are expecting Renault to change certain things on the 2022 Renault Duster so that it becomes a value proposition and become a more desirable product in the 5-seater SUV segment.
With the BS6 the duster is now available only in petrol and that has been a reason for the drop in its sales. So for the 2022 Renault Duster we are expecting a Diesel engine. The source of this diesel engine is not sure and it could be either a borrowed engine or Renault could develop it. With the diesel, we would be happy to see an automatic option.
All-Wheel Drive or 4×4?
Bringing back the AWD drive on the Renault Duster might be one more thing that will improve the sales of the vehicle. This will also add to the abilities of the 2022 Renault Duster and take it from being just a car that looks like an SUV to one that actually is capable of tackling tough terrain.
Giving it 4×4 or AWD will surely increase the price of the vehicle and we will have to keep in the mind that the price will be significantly higher.
If your question is that could the 2022 Renault Duster support a 7 seater platform then, yes, the current generation Duster can also have the 7 seater configuration? It is not in sale in India but the car has enough space for a smaller boot and a third row. With the Creta 7-seater, Safari and Hector plus, we could also expect a duster 7 seater in the future.
