The Dacia Duster won the Small SUV & 4X4 title at the seventh annual Green Apple Awards held this morning at the Houses of Parliament. The rugged and robust Duster was voted into first place for the third consecutive year thanks to its affordability, efficiency and running costs.The automotive-based honours at The Green Apple Awards, organised by the Midlands-based The Green Organisation, are judged by members of the Midland Group of Motoring Writers. Marks were awarded by judges for the way a car drives and behaves in the real world, away from the testing laboratory.
One of the Midland Group judges wrote: "The Dacia Duster continues to be extraordinarily good value for money and with proven Renault technology and powertrains underneath it doesn’t cut corners when it comes to performance and efficiency either."
Louise O’Sullivan, Head of Dacia UK said: “We’re delighted the Duster, for the third year in a row, has been recognised by such a well-respected environmental group as the Green Organisation. Not only is the Duster the perfect SUV for savvy buyers thanks to its affordability, ruggedness and impressive reliability but the Green Apple judges have proved just how economical and efficient the Duster is too.”
