Renault announced its plans to sell the 4×2 and 4×4 versions of the mini SUV in India in 2012 during an event in Delhi to handover keys to Fluence’s first fourteen customers. Renault officials had then stated two Dusters could be bought for the price of a Volkswagen Tiguan. The model reaching Auto Expo/India was premiered at the Buenos Aires Expo back in June.
The difference between the Koleos and the Duster is the latter will be localized heavily for a much lower price point. Renault will manufacture only RHD models at its Chennai plant and export it to the UK.
The other attraction will be the launch of the Pulse hatchback.
