On the design front, the new Duster is will take its styling cues from the Dacia Bigster concept and will boast a bold front grille with thin LED lamps at the front.
At the time of the launch, the new 2024 Renault Duster is likely to be offered only with ICE engine options which will be offered with both manual as well as automatic gearbox options.
