The leaked spy shots do not reveal many interior details of the new-generation Duster. However, the interior of the new SUV is likely to come equipped with a digital instrument console, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a freestanding touchscreen infotainment system, and a redesigned black dashboard, among others.

The Renault Duster is expected to have features like an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, wireless charger, digital driver display, automatic climate control, wireless connectivity, sunroof, and more. The company is likely to offer the new SUV with both hybrid and petrol powertrains.

The French automaker is planning to relaunch this SUV in India by 2025. Once it is launched in the domestic market, it will compete with the likes of the Toyota Hyryder, Maruti Grand Vitara, MG Astor, Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, the Volkswagen Taigun, and the Skoda Kushaq.
