Renault Duster & Nissan SUV

Renault and Nissan have jointly unveiled plans for four new SUVs set to hit the Indian market by 2025. At a recent press briefing, executives from both companies unveiled teasers of the upcoming models, sparking excitement among SUV enthusiasts across the country.

The centrepiece of this announcement is the utilisation of the CMF-B platform, a locally adapted modular platform developed by the Renault-Nissan Alliance. This platform, known for its versatility and efficiency, will serve as the foundation for the new SUVs, ensuring a blend of performance, comfort and safety tailored to the Indian market’s demands.

Among the highlights is the revival of the iconic Renault Duster nameplate, which is expected to grace one of the 5-seater SUVs. While details remain scarce, early glimpses suggest subtle yet distinct design modifications, including revamped headlamps and a reimagined front bumper. On the Nissan front, a sleek and dynamic design language is teased, with L-shaped LED daytime running lights.

In response to the growing demand for three-row SUVs in India, both Renault and Nissan are gearing up to introduce 7-seater variants of their respective SUVs. These larger iterations are expected to offer additional space and versatility while maintaining the performance and style of their 5-seater counterparts.

Although precise launch dates are yet to be confirmed, industry insiders speculate a late 2025 debut for the Renault Duster, with Nissan’s SUV following suit shortly after. The manufacturers have reaffirmed their commitment to introducing the new models in parallel, ensuring consumers have a diverse range of options to choose from.

In a fiercely competitive segment dominated by popular models like the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, MG Hector and the likes, the arrival of the Renault and Nissan SUVs is poised to shake up the market. With a focus on innovation, performance and value, these newcomers aim to carve out their share of the rapidly expanding SUV landscape in India.

Furthermore, the announcement of two additional products in the pipeline adds to the anticipation, hinting at the expansion of Renault and Nissan’s offerings in the Indian market.

So the Renault Duster and Nissan Terrano days are going to come back soon. We hope the new products fulfil the expectations of Indian consumer with good looks, ample features and fuel efficient yet powerful engine options.
