As per the latest buzz, Renault Duster SUV is not expected to be launched in India this June. However, the official website of Renault India says that the Renault Duster is coming in June.

The SUV which is believed to be the entry level SUV by Renault India will be produced in India at the Chennai plant and is expected to be exported to UK from India. The Renault Duster price is expected to be Rs 8.5 lakh.
