French automaker Renault is working on introducing the third-generation Duster in the Indian market next year. After being unveiled as a Dacia-badged model in November 2023, the all-new Renault Duster leaked images online three months ago. The company said the new Duster will play a major role in its new growth strategy for India called Renaulution. Ahead of its launch in India next year, here's everything you need to know about the all-new Duster.

New generation Renault Duster: Design

The new generation Duster shares design similarities with the Dacia Bigster concept. The all-new Renault Duster, with its boxy proportions, features slimmer headlights, Y-shaped LED daytime running lights, a large front spoiler, round fog lights and a chiseled bonnet.

One of the unique design elements is the “Renault” lettering on the grille. On the sides, the all-new Duster gets 18-inch two-tone alloy wheels, rounded wheel arches, plastic cladding on the lower part and roof rails. Another notable change is the rear door handles, which are now mounted on the C-pillar. The rear profile gets a chunkier skid plate and Y-shaped LED taillights.
