About New Renault Duster
Yes, we know that this is not the first time we're telling you about the new-gen duster, but if you would remember, the car that was showcased at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show.

There are new aluminium finished roof bars as well along with the new 17-inch alloy wheels that sport a rather interesting design. At the rear, we particularly dig the new X-shaped tail light cluster that seems to have taken inspiration from the Jeep Renegade. It's still a compact unit, something the current Duster owners weren't too pleased about, but the new setup certainly looks better.
