Renault has announced a price reduction on the entire Renault Duster range in India. The company has slashed prices by up to INR 1 lakh*, owing to an increase in localisation.
The Renault Duster is available in 10 different configurations. Buyers save anywhere from INR 50,663 to INR 1,00,761 on the ex-showroom price beginning today. As before, there are five grades to choose from, namely RXE, RXL, RXS, Std (Standard) and RXZ. The petrol model is still unavailable in the top-of-the-line RXZ grade. Also, Renault has not announced any changes to the equipment or the technical specifications.
While the MY2017 range’s prices started at INR 8,50,925*, the MY2018 range’s prices effective today start at INR 7,95,000*, translating to a benefit of INR 55,925*. The highest savings is on the range-topping Renault Duster, which was priced at INR 13,79,761* previously but now costs INR 12,79,000*.
Speaking about the pricing revision, Sumit Sawhney, CEO and MD, Renault India, said, “Renault had one of the highest localization done on KWID with 98% at the time of launch. We are happy to pass on the benefits to the new Duster customers making it more attractive across the range enabled by our aggressive localisation strategy on Duster as well.”
The second-gen Dacia Duster (Renault Duster) is now available in Europe. When the fully redesigned will reach India is still unknown.
