To begin with, the Duster facelift for Brazil will get the new headlight cluster with integrated LED daytime running lights, and the new grille. However, to give the crossover a more rugged appearance, Renault have opted for a different front bumper with a large silver skid plate.

While a skid plate is part of the optional accessories list for the Duster, as seen in the images above, Renault of Brazil have opted for an all-new design.

While the rear of the Duster facelift is not clearly visible in these images, we see enough of the taillights to know that they're different from the Euro-spec model. While the cluster design remains the same, the internal order (brake light, indicator and reverse light) seems to have changed on the Brazilian Duster facelift.
