The Dacia Duster is the "shockingly affordable" SUV that's coming to the UK in early 2013. Priced from just £8,995, it means you can drive an SUV for the price of some of the extras on a more expensive vehicle!
It's won lots of accolades and praise for its practicality with the most recent one coming from the prestigious Top Gear Magazine:
Here's the release:
The Dacia Duster appears on the UK roads in a month’s time, but the hotly-anticipated SUV just keeps winning accolades – the latest one from Top Gear Magazine who say: “No car in the world offers more freedom for your quid than the Dacia Duster.”
The praise comes from writer Sam Philip who named the “shockingly affordable” Duster their chosen “bargain of the year” after putting the SUV through its paces in the dirt tracks of Peru and the winding roads of the Andes.
After a dizzying trip ascending the narrow, dimly lit Peruvian roads, he says: “All those things that make the Duster so good here make it the perfect cheap car for Britain.
“A bit of extra suspension travel isn’t only useful when you’re tackling an Ande – it provides useful compliance on crumbled tarmac too, absorbing divots and ruts. The trade off – in budget cars, at least – is usually a wallowing sailboat approach to corners. But the Duster is slop-free.”
He adds: “I’m pretty sure it nails the ride-handling balance better than cars at many times its price.
“The Duster doesn’t aspire to budget chic or any such daft notion. It’s simply budget and all the better for it; honest, simple, good enough to make you reassess what you actually need, not want, from a new car.”
Lauded for its incredible on the road price from just £8,995, the Dacia Duster can also be driven away for a monthly payment of less than £100.*
The Dacia range offers incredible value for everyone and as well as the Duster, the Dacia Sandero supermini and the Dacia Stepway crossover are also priced extremely competitively. The Sandero starts at just £5,995 and the Stepway is available at just £7,995.
All three models benefit from Renault’s safety know-how and have ABS with Emergency Brake Assist, ASR traction control, ESC (Electronic Stability Control), driver, passenger and front side airbags and ISOFIX points in both outer rear seats.
