The Dacia Duster is comfortably one of the most affordable SUVs on the market. It’s also very cost-effective to run, making it a great choice for budget-conscious families and businesses alike. And owners are provided with plenty of bang for their buck, with lots of standard-issue kit and a roomy interior, which includes an especially large boot. While looks are not necessarily a vehicle’s most important feature, the Duster absolutely has no problems in this respect. Oh, and did we mention this SUV is available with genuine off-road conquering four-wheel drive?
Hey, good lookin’
As modestly priced as the Dacia Duster undoubtedly is, you’d never guess this from its appearance. No, this SUV stands proudly when compared with much more expensive rivals. It’s big, boldly styled and available in a range of exciting colours, including Fusion Red, Desert Orange and Iron Blue. And its black door mirrors and black roof bars provide an eye-catching contrast to your colour of choice. Of course, if you opt for a Pearl Black coat, the vehicle will look resplendent in an all-black finish.
Enviable interior space
The Dacia Duster provides more than enough room for five adults to travel in comfort, even during lengthy journeys. And thanks to more than 28 litres of cubby space, there are plenty of places to put drinks, reading material, portable devices and the like. Of course, it would be remiss of us not to mention the vehicle’s impressive 445-litre boot space, which increases to as much as 1,623 litres with rear seats dropped.
This budget-busting SUV is available with a choice of petrol and diesel engines, allowing you to choose the one that best suits your motoring needs and tastes. A 1.0-litre 90bhp petrol unit is installed as standard, delivering a 6.2 L/100 km combined figure and CO2 emissions from 141g/km. The most efficient option is a 1.5-litre 115bhp diesel engine, which manages a 4.9 L/100 km combined figure – while producing emissions from just 129g/km.
