Pros : # Looks # Pricing # Safety # Ground Clearance

Cons : # Dealer Network # Spare Part # Mileage


Look and Style Truly SUV looks as the front view is quite attractive and has typical SUV feel ....Rare view could have been better ,but thats the case with most of SUV's in General and Hatchback in particular ....Side view is quite complete one and in totality gives you strong Muscular feel ,the one which every one aspire from SUV   Comfort Not sure as yet to get the Test Drive , but post reading internation reviews more than sure that confort wont be disappointing too !!!! Enough Leg space , Suspensions has been well worked upon....for sure would have been a conformtable drive atleast of 5-6 Hrs journey   Pickup : Based on the reviews by Auto Pandits ,Pick-up would be one of the USP of Duster with an oustanding 100 KMPH in 11.5 Seconds   Mileage : Should be between 11 KM to 14 km (City Drive) and 13 KM o 15 KM outside ...would be decent especially for Diesel Varient   Best Features : Looks , Price   Needs to improve : Rare View , Dash board   Overall Experience : Excellent

    I hope automatic transmission will be available

    Mahesh Gosavi |31 May,2012 12:37:46 PM

    not to start with ...as Renault is launching only 2 Variant to start with .....May be they will lanch fully automatic model after 3-4 months as this being the general practice !!!!

  • jitendra |30 May,2012 08:25:10 PM

    i am looking forward to it specially its price, fuel economy,

    Mahesh Gosavi |31 May,2012 04:59:56 PM

    Hey Jitendra ...Mostly Renault is launching on Diesel Duster to Start with ......Price of Base Model (Diesel) would be 12 L on road and Top Variant would be 14.5 L ....Fuel Economy : well ,city (11 KM to 13 KM) and Highway wd be 13 KM to 15 KM

  • Soham |30 May,2012 10:30:20 PM

    I call the Renault dealer today and was informed that the vehicle would on sale commencing June 15, 2012. The variants are 2 models as know to them with on road price tag of Rs 10-12 Lakh. I still think that the price for the base model should be Rs 8.5 lakhs on road Bangalore or Hyderabad and the top variant should stretch to Rs 12 Lakh on road and not more. Taking into consideration that Ford Ecosport is also awaited to be launched in Jan 13 with a price tag as low as Rs 8 lakhs with the 1 Ltr ecoboost engine, many who are looking to purchase a similar vehicle would wait and then compare the products, obviously it is know to all that Ford Ecosport would be more in demand than the Duster but pricing is the key role here because people are aware that Renault is still to make a name for itself and especially the network of workshops would be very limited. Well its a game to be watched which would just bring in more excitement but the Key advantage which Renault would definitely hold in its portfolio is the launch of its product Duster in June 12 itself which would help in sales as no similar vehicle is available in the market now

    Mahesh Gosavi |31 May,2012 12:48:43 PM

    Hey Soham , the diesel Variant of Duster will cost you between 11 L To 14 L on Road ......If you will comapare Torque, Acceleration, Width,Boot space and Ground Clerance with Ford Ecosport , then DUSTER is way ahead and much better ....Ecosport is quite a small SUV ....Also the safety features of Duster is quite impressive including ABS , Breaking System etc .....Not to forget Renault is the MOST Respected Diesel car Manufacturer in entire WORLD ......So think again !!!!!

  • Rahul Chauhan |31 May,2012 12:02:48 PM

    I am still clueless about the release date of the most awaited Renault Duster. I have wandered across all the net but no confirmation about the availability of the vehicle. I am waiting as I have to decide whether to go with Mahindra Scorpio or Renault Duster. A confirmation on release date will be highly appreciated.

    Mahesh Gosavi |31 May,2012 12:43:26 PM

    Dear Rahul ...the date of release as of now would be from May 15 till May 28 ,2012...it will differ from City to city as well ....worth waiting as it has got much better prospect as compare to scorpio ...Ground Clearance of 210 more than Scorpio...Width more than Scorpio ....Average ,better than scorpio ....do wait !!!

    Rahul Chauhan |02 Jun,2012 04:04:58 PM

    One of the Renault showroom in Delhi (Najafgarh) has confirmed the availability of the Duster by June end.

    Rajeev |03 Jun,2012 07:07:58 PM

    Scorpio is going to remain an unbeatable proposition in terms of price / performance, reliability, suspension durability and overall ownership / trouble free experience. 3 years and 40000 Km down the road, would prefer to go with tried and trusted than with a lean network and haughty attitude sales / service staff of Renault

  • Seema |01 Jun,2012 03:05:42 PM

    Dear all, I am working with Renault Dealership.Vashi,Navi Mumbai. I like your views for Duster as well as RENAULT also. Duster is going to be launch in this month (June ) last week. So, please wait till Duster comes then take any decision, if you are going to buy any other SUV.

    mahesh |09 Jun,2012 03:54:12 PM

    Mahesh Gosavi |09 Jun,2012 04:01:38 PM

    Mahesh Gosavi |12 Jun,2012 06:35:35 PM

    Renault Duster is going to release on 2012 July 1st and bookings will start from 20th June 2012.

    R.Rajesh |13 Jun,2012 11:14:15 AM

    Ravi u r right, Booking starts from 21st June, but release from July(date not sure). Since it has got same Diesel engine as the one in Verito(and also weighs only 1160kg)its Mileage will also be good. Approx 15-17km/l in City and 18-21 in Highway(85bhp Version).The basic Diesel version on road is 10 lakhs, which will have many features in the base itself. Pros: Great Robust Looks,Nice Pick up, 1.82m Width means lot of space inside, Boot space of 475 lts,16 inch wheel, Ground Clearance 210mm & Approach angle 30, ramp break over angle 23, means good for climbing Steep Slope and offroad drive without a bump , 6 speed gear in top version, Length 4.31m so wont be a difficult drive and parking in city Inshort an Allrounder,Practical,Smart,Value for Money, entry level SUV.

    Rajesh ji, will the basic diesel variant be having all the safety features like ABS and Air Bags etc. etc.

  • Mahindra Reddy.C.V |09 Jul,2012 02:41:33 PM

    You should create 20 dealers every city of india to improve sales. Then only the sales would incerease. If you create atleast 10 dealers in each city and not changing the model till 25 years then only any company can come up.
