DC Design Turns Renault Duster into a Lux Crossover for Only €5k or $6.5k

| |

Following last week’s teaser photo, Indian coachbuilder and styling firm DC-Design has released the full set of images with its interpretation of the Renault Duster (known as the Dacia Duster in Europe).

Called the DC Duster, the SUV has received a complete overhaul on the inside, with the Indian aftermarket company adding materials like faux wood and artificial leather and fitting the car with a multimedia infotainment system for the rear right passenger.

The center console continues all the way to the rear seats, meaning the DC Duster is now a 4-seater. The two generous seats in the back are six-way adjustable, with the left one even forming a bed - provided that the front left seat is folded.

There’s also a foldable tray table and entertainment controls placed on the center console. As for the DC Duster’s exterior design, the main changes involve the front end, which has received a very thin string of LED lights (would those be enough to light up the road?) and a redesigned grille and bumper. The latter includes the DRL’s and the fog lights.

The car’s body is painted matte black, with DC Design replacing the Renault logos with its own. Other changes include custom DC alloy wheels and polished side steps.

DC charges 3.49 lakhs (€4,940) for this transformation. Of course, this adds to the price of a standard Renault Duster, which in India starts from 7.87 lakhs (€11,150).
