One of the biggest upgrades to the Renault Duster is the Easy-R AMT option for the 110 PS variant.

The facelifted Renault Duster to be unveiled will feature revisions to the exterior design that are similar to the Brazilian-spec model currently sold, as seen in spyshots. One of the biggest upgrades to the Duster is the Easy-R AMT option for the 110 PS variant to sate increasing demand for diesel automatic compact SUVs.

The two Renault Kwid concepts could preview the upgraded Renault Kwid 1.0-liter variant as well as an AMT-equipped variant. Reports suggest that the Renault Kwid 1.0L will come with dual airbags and ABS as standard in higher grades as well as improved performance from the larger 1.0L engine.

Details on the special edition Renault Lodgy are scarce at the moment. It is likely to feature cosmetic as well as equipment upgrades exclusive to the special edition. The EOLAB concept (new Renault Megane precursor) and RenaultSport R.S. 01 will simply serve as attractions and image builders at the show floor.
