Renault Duster, Renault Duster launch date, Nissan SUV for India details

At a joint press briefing, Nissan and Renault have announced the development of four new products; two five-seater SUVs, one from each brand, and their respective seven-seater derivatives.

  1. Renault Duster, Nissan SUV to be based on localised CMF-B platform
  2. Both midsize SUVs to spawn respective seven-seater iterations
  3. Two other products also in pipeline

Renault Duster, Nissan SUV: platform, design

A teaser of the two upcoming midsize SUVs was released in concept form. The SUVs will be based on the Renault-Nissan Alliance’s modular, heavily localised CMF-B platform that underpins a number of global models for both the manufacturers, along with Renault’s sister brand Dacia.

While Renault hasn’t confirmed, we believe its CMF-B-based five-seater SUV could revive the ‘Duster’ nameplate. The new-gen Renault Duster made its global debut in February this year.

However, the newly teased CMF-B SUV features some styling changes over the global-spec Duster, including redesigned headlamps as well as a restyled front bumper. The Nissan SUV boasts L-shaped LED DRLs that are connected together with a light bar running across the nose.

Renault Duster, Nissan SUV: seven-seater versions

Both SUVs will also have their respective seven-seater iterations, considering the growing segment of three-row midsize SUVs that now include the Hyundai Alcazar, MG Hector Plus, Tata Safari and Mahindra XUV700. The three-row versions of the two SUVs will likely have some distinctive styling elements and a longer wheelbase, but might carry over the same powertrain(s).

Renault Duster, Nissan SUV: launch timeline, rivals

The new Renault Duster is expected to make its India entry only by late 2025. While there is no official launch timeline for either of the four SUVs, the Renault Duster and Nissan’s five-seater SUV will likely be launched first, followed by their seven-seater iterations. The manufacturers confirmed that the products from the two brands will be introduced parallelly. Additionally, there are plans to introduce two more products, although there's no confirmation as to what they could be.

Upon arrival, the SUVs will fend off competition from SUVs like the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Skoda Kushaq, Volkswagen Taigun, Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara, Toyota Hyryder, Honda Elevate, Citroen C3 Aircross and the MG Astor.
