Will the new Renault/Dacia Duster look like this? Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps…

The French magazine AutoPlus has released new renderings of what it claims to be the second generation of the Dacia/Renault Duster. The image is in line with the appearance the new Logan and the new Sandero have adopted, what would make this rendering a very likely evolution of the crossover. We have not had access to the magazine in order to read the entire article, but for the pieces we have collected here and there, it will be released in two years, if not a little earlier. It will be bigger, more powerful and roomier, but its price will remain the same.

We would like to have more information on its platform (will it still be the B0, or will the new car receive the CMF B modular platform?), engines and more interesting details, such as the one that claims the car will have a 7-seat version. But there is nothing. The rear-end of the new Duster looks too much like the one presented by the Jeep Renegade, especially considering the tail lights.

Is this a spot-on rendering? AutoPlus usually makes bets, such as the one you can see above, so we have our doubts. The best answer for that can be only given by Cake, in its version of the famous music from Osvaldo Farrés: perhaps, perhaps, perhaps…
