The new Dacia Duster is an incredible bit of machinery. Why you may ask? Dacia's mission was to create a car that was practical, functional and aesthetically pleasing. Not that hard when you think of cars like Range Rovers, Jeeps and Land Cruisers that can create those cars for around £70,000.
However Dacia wanted to create a car that had all of this and sell it on for under £10,000?! Dacia created new methods to make sure everything was done perfectly and could get parts from it's well known sister company Renault. The result is a fantastic cheap Four Wheel Drive car with plenty of soul. View our latest offers
The flared wheel arches and the high ride height gives it protection in every weather condition and yet with the chrome bits and elegant headlamps it still looks prestigious. Underneath the car features a selectable 3 mode 4x4 system, which was developed specially by Nissan.
Making the Duster practical and functional is a key part of the Duster. It can carry up to five adults and the boot can fit 475 litres of luggage. You can even fold the back seats down and the capacity expands up to 1,636 litres.
Dacia want to make a reliable, affordable car but didnt want to compromise on the engine and with rigorous tests on all engines Dacia are confident they have not compromised. The Duster has 3 types of engines to choose from:
If you are looking for more comfort, the 6-speed dual-clutch EDC automatic gearbox is available with the dCi 110 4x2 powertrain on Lauréate and Prestige trim levels.
