Renault is readying an updated version of the Duster SUV for the Indian market. A speculative rendering of the new Duster has cropped up, thereby offering an idea of what the new model could look like
As mentioned in our earlier report, the first-gen Renault Duster is bracing itself for a facelift. The revised model is all set to make its local debut later this year. A digital illustrator from Indian Autos Blog has worked on a speculative rendering of the SUV which comes to hint out how it should look like.

The 2020 Renault Duster will sport a host of revised features regarding the bodywork aimed to meet the tighter regulations for pedestrian protection safety. Standing out from that are a new set of updated headlamps and taillamps, chunky bumpers and a more prominent grille.
The alloy wheels have been neatly re-crafted making a combination with refreshed roof rails, all to reflect a more imposing stance for the vehicle. Besides, the body colour scheme is likely to be revised while the plush cabin now comes plusher thanks to the extended feature package. The existing infotainment touchscreen will be pulled off making room for a new modern version, simultaneously the material quality also gets enhanced. Allegedly, the range-topping Duster variant is bound to come integrated with an electric sunroof.

Under the bonnet, the 2020 Renault Duster (facelift) will see the absence of the base diesel-fueled variants. Specifically, it should be available with two engine options including a 1.5-litre diesel and a 1.5-litre gasoline burner, which is, in fact, will be upgraded to the BSVI compliance. The diesel version will go on using a 6-speed manual transmission and a 6-speed automated manual transmission while the petrol models also inherit the current 5-speed MT and a CVT unit.
For the new stringent safety regulations in India these days, a range of essential safety kits like rear parking sensors, high-speed alert, passenger seatbelt reminder and more will be equipped on the facelifted Duster as standard.
