New-Gen Renault Dacia Duster SUV Overview

New-Gen Renault Dacia Duster: Exterior Looks

The all new Dacia Duster also known as Dacia gets revamped with muscular exterior looks. The front Y-shaped LED DRLS connected with the front slim grille over the headlamp setup looks futuristic and stylish with brand badging at the centre. The Air vents at the bumper cover the fog lamps giving the SUV looks a chunky character.

The huge squared-off wheel arches, roof rails, and spoiler from the Bigster are still present, but the tapering rear quarter glass is a design feature that unites the Duster with the Bigster. The new Duster’s appearance also includes a distinctive kink in the bodywork behind the rear doors, new 18-inch blacked-out alloy wheels (lower trims receive 17-inch pieces), and a blacked-out vertical “shadow line” beneath the mirrors. The previous Duster’s pronounced rear haunches have been reduced, but the sharp, Y-shaped taillights still make the rear stand out. It also consists a bootspace of 472 liters.

New-Gen Renault Dacia Duster: Interior Looks & Features

The new-gen Renault Duster (Dacia) is built on the CMF-B platform. The photos of the interior indicate that the cabin has undergone a significant makeover and is enhanced by new features. Unlike the analogue instrument clusters in the previous version, the new duster features a digital one with massive, striking floating infotainment system in the middle of the dashboard. A phone holder is situated adjacent to it.

New air vents with golden inserts underneath give it a quirky rather than elegant appearance. Fortunately, there are physical controls for the AC and other functions, along with useful storage beneath them. In addition to being contemporary, the flat-bottom steering wheel still has buttons for a variety of functions. But the grey dashboard, silver accents, stalks, and other materials all have a high-end appearance.

The top-trim Duster will be equipped with an Arkamys 3D sound system with six speakers, automated temperature control, wireless charging, and wireless connectivity for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It’s interesting to note that the new Duster will also have ADAS features, such as automated emergency braking, identification of cars, pedestrians, cyclists, and motorcycles, recognition of traffic signs with speed alerts, rear parking assistance, lane change warning and assistance, and more.
