The success of the Dacia brand in Italy is steadily increasing, as shown by the latest 2021 car sales figures: 20,000 orders for the new Sandero alone, plus the entry into the range of the Spring, the cheapest electric currently on the market. The Renault family brand does not stop and simultaneously launches its new logo and the restyling of the Dacia Duster. The new brand identity aims to position the company at a new level, from “low cost” to “Value for Money”, the workhorse of Romanian cars, placing the emphasis on the solidity of its cars. In the context of the presentation of the Udinese second kit (main sponsor Dacia), theunveiling officer of the new Duster.
dacia duster, glance
At first glance, there are no radical changes compared to the previous version: one almost says “a car that sells does not change”. The main changes concern headlights and grille, while electric engines will not be available. 4.36 m long (2.67 m wheelbase), it offers the usual technological essentiality of Dacia, without too many compromises.
dacia duster, the new optical groups
The new headlights are equipped with daytime running lights with an unprecedented Y shape. Shape that we find on the new grille grille that takes on a more modern tone. The EcoLed front and rear light cluster system includes the new Dacia light signature. LED position indicators have been introduced, technology also present on low beams and license plate, with automatic ignition as standard.
dacia duster, aerodynamics
The design of the new rear spoiler and the new 16 “and 17” alloy wheels was designed in the wind tunnel. The improved aerodynamic coefficient has allowed a reduction in emissions of 5.8 g / km in the 4WD version, thanks also to the new wheel bearings, tires and LED headlights.
dacia duster, the engines
The new Duster will be available with four Euro 6d Full engines, depending on the 2 or 4-wheel drive versions. It starts with a 1.5 dCi 115 hp diesel, with a 6-speed manual transmission also available in 4×4. The petrol will be fitted only on 2-wheel drive models and will be a 90 HP 1.0 TCe, with 6-speed manual transmission. Alternatively we find the 1.5 150 hp version with 6-speed Edc automatic transmission. Finally, there is the bi-fuel petrol-LPG Eco-G 100 Hp 2-wheel drive option, with 6-speed manual transmission.
dacia duster, top trunk
One of the strengths of the new Duster is certainly the trunk: 450 liters, truly remarkable for the C segment. For the rest, the interior does not pay too much attention to aesthetic details, the central screen is not among the largest in circulation, but it is more than enough for everyday use (it is compatible with Android Auto). Good habitability, even on the rear seats. As always the last word on the price list: it starts at 12,600 euros.
