Dacia has launched its new top-of-the-range Techroad special editions, now available to order with deliveries from April. Revealed at the Geneva Motor Show in March, the cross-range special edition is available on the Duster, Logan MCV Stepway and Sandero Stepway. Sitting above the Prestige trim for the Duster and above the Comfort trim for Sandero Stepway and Logan MCV Stepway, the Techroad trim is offered exclusively in two new colours: Fusion Red and Highland Grey.

The Sandero costs less than some annual train tickets when new, so the affordability of secondhand examples is even more convincing. Thankfully Access trim is petrol only and so basic that a radio isn’t even included, and so we’d take a look at Ambiance trim boasting air conditioning and Bluetooth.
It might be built to a shoestring budget, but spend time with a Duster and it will get under your skin. A bit like a cut-size (and definitely cut-price) Defender, there’s something compelling about its basic appointments and boisterous 107bhp 1.5-litre dCi engine – there’s precious little sound deadening – that is capable of 60mpg.
Dacia has added its entry-level SCe 75 petrol engine to the Sandero Stepway range as well as the new generation Blue dCi 95 diesel engine, with revised trim-levels on the popular small SUV
The new-generation Blue dCi 115 engine is now available to order in combination with the 4×4 drivetrain on the Dacia Duster, joining the Blue dCi 115 4×2. In addition to the “selective catalytic reduction” system (SCR), the Blue dCi 115 engines operate with a new air-water exchanger, a higher injection pressure (2,000 bars) and new gearbox ratios
Dacia has launched the Dacia Buy Online sales platform in the UK. From the touch of a button Dacia customers can now purchase a car from virtually anywhere. To mark the fact you can now buy a Dacia anywhere, Dacia created a ‘pop up dealership’ which was open for one day in the remote Yorkshire countryside inside a bus stop on the A64 between Pickering and Whitby.
Having made its global debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, the all-new Duster goes on sale in the UK from 11th June. Dacia says the new Duster has been improved and refined in almost every area but is as versatile as ever. A totally revised interior features new technologies never before seen on the Dacia range. The all-new Duster is priced from £9,995 with UK deliveries beginning from July, although diesel models start at £13,595.
Hello Doctor. I have a new Dacia Sandero Stepway 1.5 dCi, which I bought in France where I live. It is running in nicely, is pleasurable to drive, and performs well in all respects, except for the annoying stop-start system…
Dacia has revised its Duster line-up and launched two new trim levels. The Duster range is now available to order in Access, Air and Nav+ trims. The new Air trim features air conditioning, DAB radio, Bluetooth connectivity, height-adjustable driver’s seat, 16-inch wheels, body-coloured front and rear bumpers, electric front windows, USB and AUX connection and front fog lights as standard.
Dacia is making selected versions of its Duster even more ‘shockingly affordable’ for 18-registration customers by increasing its scrappage allowance on selected versions to as much as £2,000
