In the European market, sales of the updated Dacia Duster will start towards the end of the summer.
After the update, the Dacia Duster began to look like the third generation Sandero model. The crossover features a new radiator grille, headlights with LED low beam, Y-shaped running lights, and LED turn signals (for the first time in the history of the Dacia brand). The wind tunnel-optimized rear spoiler and new wheels, according to the developers, have reduced carbon dioxide emissions by 5.8 grams for the all-wheel drive version of the Dacia Duster.
The interior of the modernized Dacia Duster has new seat upholstery and head restraints of a different shape. The high center console is equipped with a 70 mm retractable armrest, under which there is a lockable 1.1 liter compartment. There are two USB charging ports on the side of the rear passengers.
For the new Dacia Duster, there are also three media systems to choose from: the basic Dacia Plug & Music and the new Media Display and Media Nav, the latter two with an 8-inch screen. They support Apple CarPlay and Android Auto apps, and the top version also supports WiFi.
The all-wheel drive Dacia Duster, equipped with new multimedia, retained the 4×4 Monitor system. It is an electronic inclinometer, compass, altimeter and tilt indicator that uses data from the Adaptive Descent Assistant. In addition, the list of available equipment includes blind spot monitoring (operates at speeds of 30-140 km / h), ultrasonic parking sensors and a 4-camera all-round view system.
In Europe, the new Dacia Duster will have three petrol engines to choose from: TCe 90, TCe 130 and TCe 150. All are equipped with “mechanics” and front-wheel drive, but the TCe 150 is still available with the EDC robotic transmission. There is also a dCi 115 diesel unit (front or four-wheel drive and “mechanics”) and a TCe 100 bi-fuel unit, which runs on gasoline and liquefied petroleum gas (front-wheel drive and manual transmission). Such a crossover with full tanks can travel 1235 km. In the European market, sales of the updated Dacia Duster will start towards the end of the summer.
