All-new Dacia Duster rolls into SUV town


In front, the Duster gets a distinctive eight-port grille that extends to the headlights positioned at the car's extreme corners - this gives it visual width.

The Dacia Duster - and the rest of the Dacia range - has been a proper budget success for Renault, mopping up sales from buyers who want a new vehicle for the price of a used one.

Dacia Duster is sold under the Renault brand in India.

The crease lines of the bonnet, meanwhile, are also much more pronounced than before.

The new Duster model will be launched at the Frankfurt Motor Show on September 12, Renault said in a statement.

Family of 6 drowns inside van during Hurricane Harvey
A seventh member of the family - a great-uncle named Samuel "Sammy" Saldivar, who was driving - escaped the rising flood waters. Witnesses to the incident said that although there were emergency crews in the area, it happened too fast for them to respond.

On the flanks, the higher belt line adds to the impression of strength and safety. Updates for the Duster include new styling, a better quality and more spacious cabin and tweaked engines. The interior is also all new coming with more room, redesigned seats, dashboard, and steering wheel. All-new 2017 Duster will be available in brand-new body colour, Atacama Orange. Horizontal lines and lights positioned at the extreme corners heighten the car's solid stance.

Seventeen-inch wheels and prominent wheel arches with black wing arch trims highlight the car's SUV looks.

At the back, Dacia's rear lighting signature - four red stacked squares - has been adapted for new Duster.

Through a major expansion programme - which included rolling out in the United Kingdom in 2012 - Dacia sold more than four million cars past year. The wide myriad of offerings includes a Duster that can function optimally in extreme cold in Russian Federation, a flex-fuel model for Brazil, and RHD from Renault India.

The latest Duster sits on the same platform as the
old model and has identical overall dimensions, although the windscreen has been moved forward slightly to improve interior space. Official specifications and engine options will be revealed at the public debut, ranging from the 1-litre to 2-litre petrol engines, while the 1.6-litre diesel in Europe could be replaced by a 1.5-litre unit.
