In production at the Nissan Renault joint plant at Chennai, the Duster SUV is a compact SUV that is destined to be a strong rival of existing Premier Rio and primarily upcoming SUVs – Ford Ecosport, Maruti XA Alpha besides others that are though lesser known but may pop out suddenly. The Duster is basically a compact SUV with off roading capabilities in its genes. Why India is eagerly waiting for this SUV is the fact that it starts below Rs 9 lakh that is the price which is cheaper than other big SUVs. Being compact in size, the Duster SUV will have the look of a sports utility and the price of a car.

Meanwhile, some have over enthusiastically expressed the expected price of the Duster to be somewhere between Rs 7 lakh to Rs 8.5 lakh. If Renault is able to price it in this band, expect the Duster to sweep the market single handedly. As per the Renault Duster details available, it will be offered in petrol and diesel engine options. The engines from the Nissan Sunny are expected to do their duty under the Duster as well.
