@asimpleson Duster has its plus points. But it feels cheap inside. Even comparing it to 2009 Linea/Punto, the interiors are quite disappointing in Duster. Also, creature comforts are real low. Ergonomics are poor. Except these, it is a very capable car. There is a big demography which just wants what Duster offers and are willing to compromise on what it does not offer. That is the sweet spot. This is Renault's best move in India so far. @acechip Duster success is in introducing a car in a segment where there are no such offering at that price points. All the reviewers are gaga about duster because it is selling very well. They even underplay the cons of the car in their reviews. But when it comes to Fiat, they tend to be over-smart and start abusing interiors, branding it as low-powered etc. They even make ridiculous comparisons with cars that are not its segment. Avventura will do everything what duster does, it even offers better features, but does not offer the space like duster. Indian consumer will never perceive Avventura as a mini-SUV. It is a cross-Punto for them. Duster, even the FWD ones will be perceived as SUV (not even mini-SUV). Indians will see the size, height and shape of the vehicle and decide whether something is a SUV. They cannot appreciate any mechanicals. I have told many of my friends that Duster is a big hatch with large wheels and longer suspension. They tend to disagree, but Avvy, they say it is a hatch with big wheels and high GC. This is all a perception game. Fiat is in no fault in not bringing Avventura in early. It would have made no difference. It is the failure of all the other manufacturers (not only Fiat) to ignore this demography and not offer anything in that segment. Maruti and Mahindra are the manufacturers that are banging their heads after Duster's success. Mahindra being a SUV king did not notice this big gap in the market. Maruti having Vitara on their line-up could have put a multi-jet engine, reduced some features and offered at an offordable (non-SUV) price. But they were happy introducing their 15th small car. They all thought SUV is only in premium category. Renualt noticed this market gap, they already had the product, they did minor changes to suit Indian conditions, they localized the manufacturing, and finally changed the game for ever.
