Dacia has revealed its new Duster crossover at the Frankfurt motor show.
The cut-price SUV hasn’t changed dramatically; it's actually based on the same platform as the old Duster, and remains the same size, but it looks different inside and out. Inside it’s a touch more premium than its Asda Price predecessor - the steering wheel is a particular improvement and the centre console is now angled towards the driver. It'll also have the addition of mobile connectivity systems such as Android Auto and Apple Carplay.
Externally, there’s a wider front grille, while the headlights are bigger than before. At the rear, the taillights have been pushed to the corners (is it us or are are they reminiscent of the Jeep Renegade?).
The windscreen is more upright and further forward than the outgoing Duster, which’ll help with interior space. There’s a new 17-inch wheel design, too, as well as a bold orange colour.
Dacia is expected to keep the Duster’s engine line-up, but with a few minor tweaks. That’ll mean buyers get a choice of a 1.2-litre petrol and a 1.5-litre diesel, along with two- or four-wheel-drive.
While we might see a small price increase, Dacia will want to keep the Duster cheaper than mainstream rivals. That means you’ll pay close to the current £9,495 start-price for an entry-level front-wheel-drive model.
