This all new 7 seater Duster will be much alike its 5 seater regular version but will feature extended dimensions. Length, breadth and height will be increased substantially to fit in the dual third row seats. This 7 seater Duster is at present in the stage of development by Dacia and is speculated to get the same response from its most fortunate marketslike Europe, Brazil and India.
With the extended length of around 4.5 metres and seating capacity of 7, the Duster 7 seater is sure to give a tough competition to Mahindra Scorpio SUV.

Both the power-trains will be mated to a five speed manual transmission and for the global models an automatic transmission is expected to be introduced.
As the Duster 7 Seater will share power-trains from the regular 5 seater Duster, its fuel efficiency is also anticipated to remain same i.e. 20.46 kmpl for diesel and 13.24 kmpl for petrol.
Renault Duster 7 seater will be a new introduction for large families and is anticipated to be marginally costly than the Duster 5 seater. This new variant of the Duster compact crossover is expected to be sold somewhere in the price bracket of Rs. 8 lakh to Rs. 14 lakh.
Expected launch date
Renault Duster is no doubt one of the best sold crossovers at present in the Indian subcontinent and its only close competitor is Ford EcoSport. The only advantage of the Duster over the EcoSport is the giant size and the company will try to take the advantage of its capacious interiors by introducing the 7 seater Duster very soon, most probably by January2017 or February2017.
