The new generation Dacia Duster is built on Renault-Nissan Alliance’s CMF-B modular platform that also underpins the Sandero and the Jogger. Nissan will also have its own version of the new Duster for global markets including India. In profile, the new Duster appears familiar with some modern styling elements. The new gen model is slightly longer than the previous model; however, it looks significantly bigger and sportier.

The front fascia is inspired from the Bigster concept and looks good in pictures. It comes with a Y-shaped LED daytime running lights in the headlights, which are nicely connected by the chrome elements on the signature Dacia grille. The lower bumper looks like a flattened bull bar and it accommodates rugged body cladding, larger air dam with rectangle inserts and circular fog light units.
