Sao Paulo to usher in Renault Duster Oroch


RENAULT has chosen the 28th Sao Paulo Motor Show in Brazil, taking place from 30th October to 9th November, to unveil its Duster Oroch concept.

The show car is a concept for a five-seat recreational pick-up bakkie version of the Duster. We love our bakkies locally and a pick-up version of the Duster may prove a hit. Renault has already announced plans to enter the pick-up market with at least two models.

The show car’s body colour is a combination of satin-finish white and touches of orange.The vehicle’s front end features the new brand identity and carries over some of the styling cues explored previously on the D-Cross concept car, which was a reinterpretation of the Duster presented at the Sao Paulo Motor Show in 2012. The large front and rear bumpers give this Duster a more robust appearance.

The Oroch features fully-integrated roof rails that protect the panoramic glass sunroof which lets natural light into the cabin and improves the sense of space inside the car. The rear layout has been specially designed to safely stow several kitesurf boards.The Duster Oroch includes two rear-mounted cameras to capture special sporting moments. Their angles are set at 80 degrees and 140 degrees for full outdoor coverage.

In true “go anywhere” style, the Duster Oroch offers a spacious cabin, higher ground clearance, 18-inch wheels with 255/60 tyres and broad side protective mouldings. The dashboard features a multimedia screen which displays in real time the images captured by the two cameras installed in the rear of the dual cab outside the vehicle. A rotary control on the centre console is used to operate the cameras.

Inside, the Oroch’s combination of colour and trim is fluorescent orange details which brighten up the dark charcoal interior. The dashboard, door inserts and some parts of the seats are made from a material which looks like neoprene wetsuits.

The Sao Paulo Motor Show will be held at the Anhembi exhibition centre and is the biggest motor show in South America.
