Renault Duster compact SUV launched in Delhi

We already reported you guys that bookings are open for the Renault Duster and orders are pouring in even before prices are announced. Today Renault India launched the much awaited Renault Duster, after a long wait at a starting price of Rs. 7.19 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi). It might be the game changer for the Renault stable in India as this rules monopoly in the new segment, without any worthy competitors. This is the fourth offering by Renault in India and has already started showing-up signs of its popularity.

Young and aspirational buyers from India are looking forward to this segment for quite awhile. Renault Duster not only creates a new segment, but also it brings a huge opportunity for Renault in India to grow its sales volumes multifold, as other cars from Renault stable were unsuccessful in India. With its lucrative pricing, great handling and attractive styling, Duster does seem to be a very good value for money option for Indian buyers.
