Now in India Nissan SUV and Renault Duster, will not line-up for Diesel.

Nissan SUV

Renault and Nissan just said they’re bringing out two new big cars. One’s called the Duster and the other’s from Nissan. They’re coming out at the end of 2025. But wait, there’s more! They’re also planning to make versions with seven seats, which should be ready to buy by late 2026. They even put out a sneak peek of both cars together. Word is, they’re going to stick with just two types of turbo-petrol engines for all four cars.

The new Duster will hit the market by late 2025. Both cars will look different on the outside. And guess what? They’re thinking about using hybrid engines too.

The small turbo engine, called the HR10, is a 1.0-liter engine that powers the Kiger and Magnite. It might get more powerful for bigger SUVs later. The other choice is the HR13, a 156hp 1.3-liter turbo-petrol engine. It first came in the Nissan Kicks and then in the older Renault Duster. Now, it’s expected to come back in midsize SUVs from Renault and Nissan. Both engines will likely have a 6-speed manual or CVT gearbox to choose from

The upcoming Renault Duster and its Nissan version might come with a basic 1.5-liter gasoline engine, but they won’t reintroduce the famous K9K diesel. They’re also thinking about a hybrid engine, but they’re not sure how much it will cost to make yet.

These four SUVs will be built using the Renault-Nissan Alliance’s flexible CMF-B platform. This platform is already used in various models worldwide by both Renault and Nissan, as well as Dacia, which is Renault’s sister brand. For India, they’re customizing the platform a lot to keep the costs competitive.

The Renault Duster was a big hit in India because of its tough look, smooth driving feel, and different engine choices, especially the popular K9K diesel engines. But the new SUVs will only come with petrol engines. There probably won’t be any petrol-hybrid options.

Coming back into India’s packed midsize SUV market won’t be simple for Renault and Nissan, but if they can mix good design, fair prices, and cool tech features, they might just win over some loyal fans.

Renault and Nissan are planning to release their rival to the Creta SUV first, and then they’ll bring out versions with seven seats. Both companies have said they’ll introduce these SUVs one after the other, and they’re aiming to start rolling them out in India by late 2025.
