It is Dacia Duster the best European low-cost SUV?
Dacia has built a reputation for offering a huge amount of metal for your money and Dacia Duster it an SUV that almost matches the Nissan Qashqai for size, but with a price closer to the Nissan Micra. This is not just a comparison, it is a fact and that’s why the latest generation is just as strong on value as its predecessor, but with a higher level of standard safety equipments.
The new Dacia Duster is now also more fashionable like Skoda Karoq, Skoda Kodiak, Nissan Qashqai or Renault Captur and at 4.341m long it’s only 5cm less than a Qashqai.Vezi această postare pe Instagram
The new grille is also redesigned with the complete iron rings (not half of it like in the predecessor) and with the black headlights (that are using LED DRLs) now it seems to be wider, and the tail-lights are square not upright.
The lights from behind are looking amazing in this + shape like on JEEP.
The bonnet, the wings are more contoured now on the new Duster and with the bigger wheels it makes the body look wider and look like a big brother.
Every visible panel of this new Duster is redesigned, but the spirit of the original remains the same.
The buttons for the electrical windows is positionating in the left door handle, The buttons for START & STOP, ECO & HAZARD is borrowed from Ford Mustang, AC buttons are improved by adding some exterior metalic rings, air cooling rings are looking great and are 5 distributed correctly.
About Motor Configuration
Dacia Duster 2019 Motor Configuration
By March there will be a couple of more sophisticated motors to pick from: two variants of a 1.3-litre unit found in the Nissan Qashqai and Mercedes A-Class.
But, in the meantime, the choice is a naturally aspirated 115bhp 1.6-litre and a new 1.5 115bhp turbo diesel with ADBLUE (my personal choice) that is the best choice of all the times in terms of power and durability.

The 4×4 version of the Duster is performing off-roading tricks that you probably wouldn’t credit and it’s not just some cosmetic crossover. Even the 4×2 Dacia Duster is performing very good on an offroad terrain with good tyres and with all the safety electronic systems.
So for me, the new Dacia Duster is really the best European low-cost SUV and if you want to see my photos with my Duster, please don’t forget to follow on Instagram or Facebook profile.
