Dacia Bigster concept can be the next-gen Renault Duster. Well, it certainly looks cool in this rendering. We have rendered it in a slew of colour options. Check them out here.
Dacia has recently unveiled the Bigster concept. It is bigger than the Dacia Duster in all three dimensions. Also, we earlier showed a rendering of its production-spec avatar, which looked like a perfect contender to become next-gen Dacia Duster. Since the Duster is on sale with Renault badge in the Indian market, we thought of having a Renault-badged iteration of the Bigster concept’s production-spec rendering. Our in-house rendering specialist – Shoeb R. Kalania, was on his toes to finish the task, and he came up with a Renault-badged version of Bigster’s production-spec model. With these renderings, it is easy to understand, that the Bigster concept has the potential to be the next-gen Renault Duster for the Indian market.
The front fascia of the next-gen Renault Duster in this rendering looks modern yet butch. The bonnet sits high and is flat. With creases on the top, it packs in a strong character. The design for the skid plate is unique as well. It extends all the way up to the slim radiator grille, which is flanked by a set of slender-looking LED headlamps. A vertically-stacked housing for the fog lamps is present on the front bumper, which replaces the air vent that was seen on the concept model.
From the sides, the next-gen Renault Duster looks cool in this rendering. The wheel arches are beefy, and the wheel wells are hexagonal. This geometrical play is lending the SUV with immense visual drama. A black applique is used on front doors which houses the variant badging. The upswept profile of the rear quarter window seems inspired by the Duster itself.
The Bigster concept is said to sit above the Duster in Dacia’s lineup. However, we expect, it won’t be the case in the Indian market, as the new Duster sold in the international markets is kept away from the Indian audience. Hence, the Bigster concept can be the potential replacement for first-gen Renault Duster in the domestic market. Talking of the engines, the Bigster-based Renault Duster is expected to come with Duster's powertrain options – 1.5L naturally-aspirated petrol and 1.3L turbo-petrol. The former is capable of developing 106 PS/142 Nm, whereas the latter pushes out 156 PS/254 Nm.
