The Dacia Duster is a compact SUV offering an excellent experience at an attractive price. The latest generation has been given a makeover, with a wealth of new features to appeal to families and thrill-seekers alike. Entry-level Access, Ambiance, Ambiance Prime, Laureate and top-spec Prestige trim levels are available.
With the new Dacia Duster, you can expect a more modern and dynamic looking model than ever before. The updated front grille is striking, as are the stylish 16-inch Eiger steel wheels. This SUV flawlessly combines rugged pragmatism with elegant styling – just take a look at the sleek, black roof bars and sophisticated headlamps. The flared wheel arches and high ride height add to its on- and off-road presence, while providing protection against the elements.
On-board the Duster, practicality, functionality and comfort are key. The cabin can accommodate up to five adults with ease, along with their luggage in the large, 475-litre boot. Fold the seats down to create a huge, 1,636-litre cavity with 2.6 metres of loading space – ideal if you need to transport long items. Ambience models and up benefit from a height-adjustable driver’s seat to put you in prime driving position, while the Laureate gets a cool leather steering wheel. Hard-wearing plastics feature throughout in all trim levels to create a robust yet refined look and feel.
The new Dacia Duster has what it takes to handle most conditions, whether you’re driving on- or off-road. A selectable, three-mode 4x4 system features underneath the car. Engines are impressive and efficient. As well as the 1.6-litre petrol and 1.6-litre diesel units, a new turbocharged 123bhp 1.2-litre three-cylinder petrol engine has been added to the range. In two-wheel drive, this unit returns approximately 46mpg, with CO² emissions of 138g/km. Only the diesel engine offers better figures – it achieves 64.2mpg combined and emits only 115g/km of CO². For an even smoother ride, higher trim levels come with an optional, six-speed, dual-clutch EDC automatic gearbox.
Technology and safety
Quality and affordability combine in the Dacia Duster, and it’s no different when it comes to technology and safety. Even entry-level models are well-equipped with ABS and emergency brake assist, plus driver, passenger and front-side airbags. There’s also front seatbelt pretensioners and handy ISOFIX points for simple child-seat installation. DAB radio and Bluetooth connectivity come as standard from the Ambience trim and up. Upgrade to the Laureate to get air-conditioning and all-round electric windows. The high-end Prestige trim comes with a cutting-edge, seven-inch touchscreen Media Nav. It has a host of clever capabilities, including satellite navigation and media from multiple sources.
