The Dacia Duster Commercial has been up-to-date with a new fascia, bringing it into line with the rest of the Romanian brand’s models.
The new brand id swaps the regular grille for a smoother surface area that includes a new logo with an interlocking ‘D’ and ‘C’. Wherever the past grille had a chrome encompass, the new variation gets white-striped panelling.
At the rear, the protect-type Dacia badge is long gone, replaced by script spelling out the brand’s title, and the ‘Duster’ badging is entirely omitted. The purple panelling on the rear lights has also been changed with flat-black plastic.
As with numerous motor vehicles from mainstream makers at the instant, charges have greater across the Duster Business vary. The entry-level model now expenditures £13,995 (excluding VAT), £1200 more than ahead of.
Rising uncooked-product fees, soaring electrical power costs and supply-chain road blocks have forced producers to increase list price ranges in a bid to protect margins.
Even with the increase in charge, the Duster Professional continues to be a single of the most very affordable 4×4 business SUVs offered, at significantly less than half the price tag of the Toyota Land Cruiser Business.
The Suzuki Jimny Business rival is basically unchanged in other places: there is even now a significant load mattress (rather of the standard version’s rear seats) and a highest payload of up to 503kg.
The motor line-up also stays the identical, comprising 88bhp and 148bhp petrol units and a 113bhp diesel that can be had with 4-wheel travel. A dual-clutch computerized gearbox is also available.
Two trims are offered, dubbed Essential and Expression. The former will come with the Y-shaped LED daytime jogging lights, steel wheels and a DAB radio, amid other goods. Expression adds an 8.0in infotainment touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as perfectly as a leather-based steering wheel and upgraded interior upholstery.
