Nissan’s version of the Duster, as it is project named as NH79, will be launched sometime in October, during the festive season. The NH79, will have an absolutely new fascia, that will resemble Nissan’s existing SUV, the X-Trail. Nissan plans make a complete overhaul of the Duster, and blend it Nissan’s styling.
The side profile of the vehicle however remains the same. The front and the rear will be different. Nissan has burnt its fingers with the X-Trail, as it was a five-seater than a seven and for some reasons, Indians are in love with seven-seats. Hence, Nissan is considering adding the extra two, and just like Renault it could be offered as a dealer fitment.
On the other hand, we also hear that the Nissan’s version of Duster will also get a completely revamped interior design. So, you could see a Nissan-style steering wheel, music system and some more changes on the instrument panel. Now, the question is if the Nissan Duster will be priced more or less than the Renault. From what we understand, Nissan could even cut down the cost and price this product more aggressively than its French partner Renault.
So, the launch is slated for October or maybe even late September for this Nissan’s version of the Duster. Our sources claim that this version of the compact SUV could look more stylish and feel more premium than Renault’s version. We need to wait for some time before the vehicle is launched.
