Dacia, an off-shoot of the Renault brand, has had some help from the boss with the release of the Dacia Duster. Due to the Duster being a culmination of various successful Renault concepts, the vehicle was produced with minimal trouble. Simply put, the price reflects all this. What you end up with in a Dacia Duster is nothing short of an exceptional deal.
The Duster has impressive benefits, including emergency brake assist, electronic stability control and brakeforce distribution, all of which massively decrease chances of danger on any terrain. These features work in unison to prevent issues, but even so, airbags are built-in for peace of mind.
For such a large vehicle, the SUV deals with varying terrains adeptly, providing a pleasant drive in both city and rural landscapes, leaving the driver free to enjoy the surrounds whilst at the wheel.
The new Dacia Duster can be fitted with either diesel or petrol engines, but the basic model is the 1.6-litre petrol, delivering 105hp. It is a solid runner and smooth in performance, working perfectly with the SUV's suspension to aid a comfortable ride. Emissions wise, 139g/km on a 1.5-litre diesel fits into the respectable band E on the VED band scale.
The Duster is bold and shapely in its image, with flush lighting embedded into the bodywork and a roof rack to store all of your holiday gear. The chunky wheels allow a decent space between the chassis and the ground and, once back on dry land, the Dacia Duster will still impress as you drive about town.
An overhaul of the dashboard for the UK release has left the Dacia Duster looking impeccably proud, whilst the seats are well-padded and comfy for long periods of time. Leg and headroom is plentiful, and a boot space of 400 litres on a two-wheel drive shouldn't be taken lightly. This expands to some 1,500 litres when rear seats are reduced. With the boot full and rear seats upright, it is perfectly comfortable to travel with a full set of passengers and a tightly packed boot.
The new Dacia Duster is a rare treat assistance from Renault has enabled Dacia to produce a practical runner fit for urban and rural landscapes, and which doesn't compromise on image. The Dacia Duster provides the motivation to get out of town with family and friends, whilst still looking city-proud.
