Dacia Duster Goes Official With Evolutionary Design


Other changes can be seen on the exterior, which features a new grille and headlights stuck right at the edge to emphasise the width of the new Duster.

The Dacia Duster - and the rest of the Dacia range - has been a proper budget success for Renault, mopping up sales from buyers who want a new vehicle for the price of a used one.

The second generation Renault Duster has been revealed officially. Additionally, there's also a wider, satin chrome finish rear skid plate. This time, the Romanian subsidiary of the french carmaker Renault is set to launch the all-new Duster at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. Shown in a new striking Atacama Orange shade, the 2018 Duster builds upon the robust yet modern looks of the model before it, but with some effective changes here and there.

On the sides, the higher belt line adds to the tough look.

New aluminium roof bars and more prominent wheel arches with black trims complete the enhancedoff-roading look, as do 17-inch alloys, which can be had on the posher and therefore pricier versions of the Duster. The crease lines of the horizontal bonnet contribute to the Duster's tough stance. That said, the new rear lighting signature - four red stacked squares - does reek a little too much of the new Jeep Renegade. The rear satin-chrome-finish rear skid plate gets the same facelift as it's front counterpart. The model is the company's best-seller globally with over 1 million units sold.

The new Dacia Duster isn't expected to go on sale in the United Kingdom until summer 2018.

With more than one million sales worldwide since the Dacia Duster's launch in 2010, it is clear there is a bit of a thirst for cheap off-roaders and, in the United Kingdom at least, there is nothing cheaper.

Engines for the updated Duster are expected to once again include a 1.2-litre petrol unit and 1.5-litre diesel.
