Article by Christian A., on October 21, 2013

Renault introduced the Duster Detour Concept at the 2013 Johannesburg International Motor Show (JIMS) running from 18 - 27 October at the Expo Centre, Nasrec. If you like what you see, you have to know that this vehicle was created by Renault Design Central Europe and a specialised South African design studio based in Johannesburg.

The Duster Detour Concept is described as a Mad Max with a touch of the Terminator plus some Dakar dust’n’ dirt. As you can see from the photos, the Duster Detour Concept comes in a two-tone Pearl Yellow and Matt Grey finish and features tinted windows with black pillar masks and 18-inch alloy wheels wrapped in all-terrain tyres and hidden under widened wheel arches.

Regarding its looks, the Duster Detour Concept comes with a custom front grille, new headlamp clusters finished in Pearl Yellow and daytime running lights. The side shows graphics that dominate the vehicle from front to back and new sills.

The rear end is finished in Matt Grey and features a rear roof spoiler, black LED tail lights and double exhausts silencer with rear diffuser enhance. “We’ve had an enormous amount of fun in integrating the key design equipment and eye-catching elements that have gone in to making up the Renault Duster Détour” says Geoffrey Gardiner, Director at Renault Design Central Europe.

Renault Duster Detour Concept

Renault aficionados and SUV buffs alike are in for a treat at the 2013 Johannesburg International Motor Show (JIMS) running from 18 - 27 October at the Expo Centre, Nasrec.

Mix a little Mad Max with a touch of the Terminator. Throw in some Dakar dust ‘n dirt and man up to meet the macho Renault DusterDétour a little later this month.

Renault Duster Détour is the fruit of an intense collaborative work between Renault Design Central Europe and a specialised South African design studio based in Johannesburg.

With a body vibrantly emblazoned in a two-tone combo of Pearl Yellow/Matt Grey, this is concept with a capital ‘C’ – and looks set to take on and vanquish all contenders in South Africa’s ‘veld en vlakte’ SUV brigade.

“We’ve had an enormous amount of fun in integrating the key design equipment and eye-catching elements that have gone in to making up the Renault Duster Détour” says Geoffrey Gardiner, Director at Renault Design Central Europe.

“This fun and futuristic show-car couldn’t have come at a better time, following the introduction of the ground-breaking Renault Duster range in mid-September”, says Floyd Ramabulana, Product manager at Renault South Africa. “We’ve received an amazing response from potential buyers who have flooded our website and social network platforms to discover Duster’s line-up. Our dealers are extremely busy organising hundreds of test drives”.

Those who have not yet had the chance to get up close and personal with the ‘real’ New Renault Duster SUV will be able to discover it at JIMS 2013, where it will be on display, together with the Détour show-car.

Boasting rugged good looks, loads of space (475 litres of boot space for starters) and real off-road capabilities, New Renault Duster is the perfect companion for active families.

“The New Renault Duster – it’s time for tough!”
