Dacia (Renault) Bigster SUV Concept Showcased, To Be Placed Above The Duster

The new SUV is bigger than the Duster and is expected to offer three-row seating
Dacia is a Romanian carmaker that’s basically an affordable subsidiary of Renault.
The production-spec model is expected in the coming years.
The Duster that we have in India is from Dacia but rebadged by Renault.
Dacia has now showcased its flagship Bigster concept SUV.
If it does come to India, expect the Harrier-sized SUV to be offered at the price of the Creta.
Renault’s subsidiary brand, Dacia, has showcased the new Bigster Concept SUV in Europe. It is significantly longer than the Duster at 4.6 metres. The new flagship Dacia SUV will be launched in Europe by 2025.
The concept gets a wide front grille with LED lighting, aggressive and muscular bumpers, flared wheel arches, heavy body cladding and Y-shaped tail lights. It gets a flat roofline with functional roof rails. The ground clearance seems quite high, similar to the Duster. It looks quite rugged but still follows a simple design language. The boxy SUV shape indicates that Dacia is going the old-school way like the Duster.
The Bigster Concept seems to be a three-row SUV as the large rear-quarter glass indicates the same. Also, it is a 4.6-metre-long SUV, which could fit seven seats inside.
Dacia says that the Bigster concept will be offered with various powertrain options, including hybrid and green energy alternatives (LPG or CNG).
Currently, Renault India is focused on products based on the new CMF-A+ platform such as the Triber, Nissan Magnite and the upcoming Kiger sub-4m SUV. Bigger products like the Duster and Nissan Kicks use an older B0 platform.
However, it makes sense for Renault to bring in the production version of the Bigster to India. The concept carries forward the value-for-money proposition of the brand. Even the Duster compact SUV is originally from Dacia, but is priced in line with subcompact offerings. So if Renault plans to offer the Bigster in India it would be a Harrier-size SUV but at the price of a Creta.
