For those who are planning to bring the next generation Renault Duster during the festival of Diwali this year, this news will be quite disappointing for them. According to recent reports going through the expected launch of Captur SUV during Diwali, the French car maker is planning to delay the launch of next generation Duster in Indian car market during Diwali.

It is developed on the same platform on which Captur is developed. The cosmetic changes will include revamped headlights with LED DRLS, new front grille followed by new lines of wrinkles at the front bonnet. The side profile will sport seventeen inch alloy wheels. Inside the cabin it will adorn newly developed dashboard integrating advanced infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android auto.
Mechanically it will continue the same engine configurations with might modifications.
