Dacia has renewed the Duster, the brand’s SUV, giving it “modern, all-new robust styling”. The company says that with more than one million unit sales to date, a new chapter in the model’s history is about to begin.
Dacia says that the new Duster’s adventurer pedigree and ability to stray off the beaten track is expressed by the latest version’s updated design. In keeping with the model’s DNA, the new Duster “combines robust, muscular styling with a truly assertive personality that is emphasised by a brand-new body colour, Atacama Orange”.
At the front, All-New Duster’s distinctive grille extends to the head lights positioned at the car’s extreme corners and makes the model appear wider. A new lighting signature, including LED daytime running lights, are divided into three sections. The crease lines of the horizontal bonnet are designed to contribute to the vehicle’s assertive stance. The larger, mass-coloured, satin-chrome-finish skid plate is intended to reinforce the car’s adventurer credentials and is scratch-resistant to maintain its smart look.
At the side, there is a higher belt line and the windscreen has been brought forward 100mm compared with the current Duster and is more steeply raked, which is intended to make the cabin longer so it looks more spacious. The new aluminium roof bars, a frequent SUV hallmark, extend the line of the windscreen for a more dynamic profile. There are 17-inch wheels and prominent wheel arches with black wing arch trims.
The rear features voluminous haunches. Horizontal lines and lights positioned at the extreme corners are designed to heighten the car’s solid stance. Dacia’s rear lighting signature – four red stacked squares – has been adapted for Duster.
The upgraded Duster also features upgraded travelling comfort thanks to a completely redesigned, quality-feel interior and new equipment.
