As some of our readers pointed out earlier today, Volkswagen's new Taigun concept bears a certain resemblance to the Renault Group's Dacia Duster SUV, which becomes a bit more evident with the French firm's DCross Concept that was also revealed today at the Sao Paulo Motor Show.
In Brazil, Renault offers all Dacia models under its own nameplate, including the Duster. So, what is the deal with the DCross Concept?
The study is the work of Renault's design team in Brazil, who wanted to give the production Duster a stronger styling personality.
The DCross sports a two-tone finish with the front three-quarters of the SUV painted in bright green and the rear section in matte black, while it also gets a newly styled front end with a more futuristic look, as well as different tail lamps, beefier rocker panels and roof rails housing the spare wheel.
The chunkier tires and alloy wheels along with the redesigned mirrors, round out the styling changes on the DCross Concept.
