Renault Duster, it looks wow!!
Pros : Appealing and energetic
Cons : Worried about maintenance
Friends, I am Nitin Kumar from Bhopal (M.P.) and I am eagerly waiting for coming June, when Renault will launch the appealing car, Renault Duster SUV. However, the price of this car has not been confirmed yet, but I would be happy if the company launched it around Rs. 6 – 7 lakh. I want to purchase the diesel SUV with good mileage and I expect that Duster’s 1.5 liter diesel engine would deliver mileage atleast around 14 to 15 km/l.
I have few other options as well for the purchase i.e. the Scorpio and MUV Innova, but I would prefer waiting for Renault Duster as it dynamics looks much attractive than the other two cars. Also I am expecting to come equipped with all the modern safety and convenience features. My suggestion to the company would be to bring this car in automatic transmission variant that too at a price not more than Rs. 8.5, as no other SUV is available in automatic variant at a lower price. Duster looks bit similar to the SUV Chevrolet Captiva. The bulky side and tough front with perfect rear makes it comprehensive runner.
I am worried about the maintenance of this car. One of my friends has the Renault Fluence and he said that the maintenance cost would too high compared to local car makers like Maruti Suzuki and Hyundai, therefore, I would wish to get suggestions from any of the viewers who know more about the maintenance of Renault cars. At present, I have got the Hyundai Accent sedan, therefore, I would look for the exchange option if possible, but prior everything else I would be waiting desperately for the car launch.
