Renault Duster to get a 4×4 variant in a few months
Those of you who would like to go off the road with a trendy car, you might wanna wait for Renault Duster 4×4. Yes, a 4×4 version is officially confirmed for launch in India, putting an end to all speculations, thanks to CarDekho for confirming it with Mr. Sumit Sawhney, MD and CEO of Renault India. Duster 4WD is already buzzing in some countries, branded under Dacia.
4×4 option will most likely feature only in top of line RxZ variant of Duster, for a difference of around Rs. 80,000 to Rs. 1.1 lakh more. This strongly competes with Mahindra XUV500, Scorpio and Tata Safari Storme in 4×4 space.
Renault’s flagship Duster made quite a debut in India in mid-2012. Within few months into its launch, Renault had to triple the production in their Oragadam plant near Chennai, from 7 cars per hour to 20 per hour, to meet the demand Duster created. It also grabbed 23 percent of compact SUV market share in its first year of conception. Now lets see what all new 4WD variant does in its segment.
Nissan just recently launched a 4 wheel drive variant of Terrano in Russia with two petrol engine options. Will Nissan bring a 4×4 Terrano here soon after Duster 4×4 sets foot in India?
