Dacia will introduce a series of updates for the 2015 Duster on the UK market. After the European facelift, Duster will also receive some of the updates, visual and mechanical.
And from now on, every Dacia Duster we will see in UK will be manufactured in Romania not in India as before. The Mioveni factory will start producing Dusters in right-hand drive configuration along already popular left-hand drive Dusters.
The visual tweaks include a chrome front grille with Dacia logo, ‘Duster’ branded roof bars, a black tailgate trim with ‘Duster’ branding, new Tyrol 16-inch alloy wheels, body-coloured door handles and dark metal door mirror casings. Five new metallic colours will be available: Mercury, Khaki, Pearl Black, Slate Grey and Cinnamon.
Inside the cabin there is new upholstery and seats for every model. Access versions are finished in Hassium cloth, Ambiance in Osmium cloth and Lauréate in Rhodium cloth with "Duster" lettering.
The entry level Access features as standard 16-inch Eiger steel wheels, remote locking, electric front windows, anti-lock brakes with Emergency Brake Assist, Electronic Stability Control and Traction Control, a Tyre Pressure Monitor, four airbags, an ECO driving mode and gearshift indicator and a four-speed heating and ventilation system.
The engine range includes a 105 hp 1.6-litre 16-valve petrol engine and a 107 hp (109 hp on 4×4 versions) 1.5-litre dCi 110 turbodiesel power unit. Prices start at less than £9,500 for the two-wheel-drive Access model.
