An SUV that delivers on the
essentials without going overboard, the new Dacia Duster epitomises the
Romanian brand’s no-nonsense approach to motoring. Having scooped several
awards for its practicality and versatility, it’s a firm favourite with drivers
and critics alike, proving that greatness can be achieved without fuss.
Recently updated, the latest Duster sports a rugged, go-anywhere look that’s complemented by a striking front grille and elegant lighting signature. Roof bars add to the model’s overall practicality, while 17-inch alloy wheels and a selection of vibrant colour choices ensure it stands out whether it’s on the road or hitting a dirt track.
The revisions continue in the cabin, with a restyled centre console providing a focal point for the dash. The display screen sits higher, making it easier to operate, while contoured front seats envelop your body, offering optimum support and comfort throughout your journey. Space is the one thing that hasn’t been altered – with generous head and legroom for even the tallest passengers, the Duster has retained its ample proportions and roomy feel.
No-nonsense the Duster may be, but that doesn’t mean it compromises on the fundamentals. And for modern drivers, that means automatic air conditioning to keep you cool in the summer heat; Bluetooth connectivity to enable you to stream music and make calls on the go; and even a navigation system on selected trims, to help you get to your destination by the fastest route. You can even benefit from a hands-free keycard system, which saves you having to search your pockets or handbag for your keys.
Engines and fuel economy
Two petrol engines and a diesel unit are available with the new Dacia Duster, each providing enough power and torque to haul not only you and your family, but a trailer or caravan too. As for economy, figures reach as high as 50mpg, ensuring you can enjoy more miles of relaxed driving between fuel stops.
When it comes to safety, nothing should be left to chance. That’s why the Duster features a host of equipment for your protection, including ABS, stability control, a full complement of airbags and ISOFIX child seat mounting points as standard. It also boasts a reinforced body shell that maximises protection in the event of an impact.
