Renault is gearing up to launch the Kaptur later this year (read more details) and we have ‘unofficial’ confirmations on stock clearance of the current inventory of few Duster models. An official mail was sent out to members of “Gang of Dusters” which states that the company is willing to offer a cash discount of 1.6 lakh on the base 85 PS Standard version and as much as 2 lakh cash discount on the top end 110 PS AWD model.
Current 85 PS Standard Price: 9.21 lakh
Special Offer Price: 7.61 lakh
Current 110 PS AWD Price: 13.45 lakh
Special Offer Price: 11.45 lakh
These are ex-showroom prices. Further, you can also avail 10k exchange offer and 7k corporate bonus. But hurry up as on 34 units of the 85 PS and 73 units of the AWD version are being offered.
At these prices, these two models offer tremendous value for money. Remember, even the base standard 85 PS version comes with manual air-conditioning, keyless entry, power steering and front power windows.
The second news is that after the launch of the Kaptur, Renault will trim down the line-up of Duster models. Only three versions will remain (down from the current 10) and these will be the 85 PS RxE, 85 PS RxZ and 110 PS AMT RxZ. This also hints at a very strong possibility of the Kaptur coming with AWD version!
