Brazil gets an Automatic version of Renault Duster - India too on cards ?

Renault India has got an overwhelmed response of Duster SUV since the day it has been launched in India. In fact the car maker is able to break records every month with sales crossing 5000+ units for October 2012

There has been a lot of queries to us from our fans about the Duster being launched in an Automatic variant. The french car maker has always been saying "No plans as of now" for an automatic variant but we can now think of Renault bringing an automatic variant too to India. Since, this is not the right time to be with an automatic variant as the company is not able to deliver the manual variants on time due to huge demand supply gap.

However, Ford EcoSport has recently been spotted testing with an Automatic gearbox and might be scheduled for India too. This makes one reason for Renault India to think on grounds of launching an automatic variant too. Also, in Brazil Renault offers an Automatic variant too for Duster and you could opt for a 2.0L engine mated to a four-speed automatic gearbox.

Renault could only think of launching an automatic variant only if it manages to fulfill the demand of current manual variants. Also, a Ford EcoSport automatic variant launch, expected in January 2013 could make Renault India think on these grounds. Stay tuned for more information.
