Dacia is one of the fastest growing car brands in the UK, thanks to its low price and affordable vehicles in the line-up. The current Dacia Duster was one of the most popular car, and will surely continue to be as the Romanian brand is announcing a series of important updates.
 
The small SUV will be enjoying a fresh new EU6-compliant 1.6 16V 115 petrol engine which replaces the previous 1.6 16V 105 engine. It develops 10hp more than its predecessor at 5,500rpm and has an extra 8Nm of torque – now 156Nm at 4,000rpm.
 
This trims the 0-62mph acceleration time of 4x2 versions from 11.5 to 11.0 seconds, while for 4x4 models the reduction is 0.8 seconds to 12.0 seconds. The top speeds rise by 1mph and 5mph respectively. For 4x4 versions, CO2 emissions tumble by 30g/km to 155g/km, while NEDC fuel consumption has been reduced by 6.2mpg and is now 41.5mpg. There are substantial gains with 4x2 models, too: CO2 falls by 20g/km to 145g/km, fuel economy improves by 4.3mpg to 44.1mpg.
 
The increase in power and torque also raises the towing capacity of 4x2 versions from 1,200 to 1,500kg so that it is now on a par with that of the 4x4 versions.

Mid-range Ambiance 4x2 and 4x4 versions have been added, giving a more progressive and logical product line. Previously, only entry-level Access models were offered with a petrol engine. The new Ambiance versions are priced at £10,495 (4x2) and £12,495 (4x4). The new petrol engine is also fitted to Access versions, which are priced at £9,495 (4x2) and £11,495 (4x4).

There are also reductions in fuel consumption and emissions for Duster models powered by the dCi 110 turbodiesel engine, which now meets EU6 emissions standards.
