New Renault Duster To Get A Facelift To Stay Ahead Of Ecosport in 2013

Renault Duster is the first affordable compact crossover SUV and that has clearly given the car a great start in every market including Brazil and India. Renault Duster received much better opening in Europe and India than Renault ever hoped for it. Although this crossover got some new modifications to suit the European markets but was offered at much lower prices than its main competitor Ford EcoSport. The present model has given a tough fight to the Ford giant not only in terms of prices but also in terms of aggressive marketing which was a major reason of its wide acceptance among consumers.

Now The Renault Duster Is Ready To Face Its Competitor Ecosport In Indian Market. As EcoSport returns back with a complete makeover. Although Renault shared an equal market share with Ford last month but for the upcoming months the story might take a new turn. Therefore, Renault also seems to be preparing its warrior for the new war. It is being assumed that the new Duster will carry several innovative features based on the concept D cross.

At the recently concluded Sau Paulo Motor Show in Brazil, French automaker Renault showcased the Duster D-Cross concept, as an appetizer of sorts given that Ford has just launched the EcoSport crossover in the Brazilian & Indian market
The major external changes that can be noticed will be in headlights and fender lines that would earn LED daytime functioning lights. The flashlights and bumper will also receive renovations. On the internal level the changes can be expected in terms of material quality and level of equipment. All changes seems to be in sync with the new evolved Ford EcoSport. An up gradation in engine can also be expected as a new version is all about improved efficiency and fuel consumption of a vehicle.
The new evolved Duster will definitely live up to the level of new Logan and Sandero. In India, the new Duster will be unveiled almost around the launch of new EcoSport. The EcoSport, being smaller than the Duster dimensionally is expected to be priced lower than the Renault SUV in the Indian car market.  Although Duster has already earned a wide appreciation in terms of mileage and performance but the real war will begin when these upgraded players would stand face to face in Indian market
