With Dacia, affordable doesn’t have to mean unattractive. That’s why Dacia Duster is blessed with rugged good looks. Its muscular design, including extended wheel arches and a raised ride height, makes Duster every inch a robust and protective off-roader. Yet its imposing chrome front grille and double-optic headlamps are graceful around town. In top-of-the range Lauréate trim, standard 16" alloy wheels, satin chrome roof bars, side sills and front and rear scuff plates give Duster effortless SUV style.
Duster’s beauty is more than skin deep, though. From its intelligent 3-mode all-wheel drive system* to its elegant chrome instrument surrounds, Duster combines brains with beauty. For ultimate luxury, Lauréate versions come equipped with piano black interior detailing, chrome air vent surrounds and air conditioning as standard. Those seeking an added personal touch may choose from the extensive range of accessories, including body protection mouldings, chrome styling kits and interior armrests. Dacia Duster, how would you like yours?

Beneath Duster’s rugged good looks lies a truly capable off-road car. 4x4 versions are equipped with the following features for optimum off-road performance:
High-ground clearance and wide “approach” and “departure” angles, at the front and rear of the car, enable Duster to negotiate difficult obstacles over rugged ground. Its solid structure is built to withstand the toughest terrain, yet Duster’s light weight (less than 1,300kg) and compact size make it agile when conditions demand quick reactions.
