At the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2017 in September, the world premiere of Renault Duster 2018-2019 will take place in the new body, which, traditionally for the European market, is first presented under the local brand Dacia.
Judging by the first official photos of the new Renault Duster 2 generation, outwardly the car changed not too seriously. The crossover retained muscular wheel arches, massive bumper covers, as well as the characteristic shape of light engineering and side glazing.
At the same time, we see a different grille, trimmed bumpers, a more embossed hood, a different head-optics design, in which DXO LED sections appeared, as well as the original design of rear lights resembling a sight.
Also, the new Renault Duster 2018 got a vertical plastic cover behind the front wings (I wonder if this solution will not be a place of accumulation of dirt?), Other roof rails, new-design wheel disks, and additional body painting options.
As expected, the all-terrain vehicle has become a little longer than its predecessor , although the exact overall dimensions are not yet shown. The company notes that the bottom edge of the windshield was moved forward by 100 mm, having achieved the effect of increased space in front of the driver. You can also notice that the window-line became a little higher.
In the interior of the new model appeared a modified front panel, a re-designed instrument panel, as well as a completely new steering wheel. Plus the list of available equipment is expanded. Later, the appearance of a 7-seat modification with a stretched body is not ruled out.
The official presentation of the novelty will take place on September 12th – then all details about the car will become known. It is expected that the Renault Duster 2018-2019 in the new body is based on the upgraded in the next B0 platform, while the European version will save all the engines from the first generation car.
Recall that in the Old World for Duster available gasoline atmospheres in volume of 1.6 liters for 115 forces, 1.2-liter turbocharged unit TCe with a return of 125 hp, as well as a half-liter diesel dCi in two degrees of forcing – at 90 and 110 “Horses.” The Russian version of the SUV will receive a suspension adapted to our conditions and its own line of engines.
But alas, the start of sales of the new Renault Duster 2 is planned only for 2019, so we have at least a year and a half to be content with the current version, there is no information about prices and trim levels yet.
On the other hand, for sure, the all-rounder that has grown up and received a richer equipment will be much more expensive. It happened with the former best-selling Hyundai Solaris and Kia Rio after the change of their generation.
