The All-New Dacia Duster
Building on the success of the first generation models, the All-New Dacia Duster has
been improved and refined in almost every area but is as versatile as
The All-New Duster’s ability to stray off the beaten track is expressed by
the latest version’s updated design.
In keeping with the model’s DNA,
All-New Duster combines robust, muscular styling with a truly assertive
personality. A totally revised interior features new technologies never
before seen on the Dacia range.
Award Winning again in 2019
Dacia is celebrating again as it picked up two wins in the annual

Duster won in the ‘Best Family SUV for less than £18,000’ category. The
What Car? Awards are among the most prestigious in the automotive
industry and reflect the opinions of the vastly experienced road test

All-new exterior styling - The exterior styling is brand-new and not one body panel is carried over from the previous generation car. New 17-inch wheels with black wing arch trims give the car a more assertive personality with a more distinctive grille extending to the head lights, making the car look wider.
The model boasts a new lighting signature, including LED daytime running lights divided into three sections and Dacia’s rear lighting signature – four red stacked squares – has been adapted for All-New Duster. The newly designed bonnet features sculpted crease lines that give the All-New Duster an even more rugged appearance. A larger, mass-coloured, scratch-resistant front skid plate reinforces Duster’s adventurer credentials. A higher belt line adds to the impression of robustness and protection while the windscreen has been brought forward 100mm and is more steeply raked, which makes the cabin appear more spacious.
Totally revised and improved interior - The dashboard and interior have been totally revised for enhanced comfort and quality. The centre console accommodates a higher-positioned (+74 mm), driver-focused MediaNav multimedia touchscreen display for clear, easy access, with one of the market’s shortest viewing distances.
The seats have been completely redesigned with denser foam for improved comfort and support. The front seat cushions are 20mm longer and the driver’s seat comes with an armrest, lumbar adjustment and a new height-adjustment system which travels through 60 mm (compared with 40 mm previously).
Storage capacity in the cabin has been increased by 20 per cent to a total of 28.6 litres. The All-New Duster has the same boot capacity as its predecessor: 445 litres for the 2WD version and 376 litres for the 4WD version.
The All-New Duster also comes with new electric power steering that reduces the effort required to turn the wheel by 35 per cent, which is particularly useful when parking.
New technology and improved safety features - On the highest trim level All-New Duster is now available with keyless entry – technology which has been tried and tested throughout Groupe Renault for several years. This user-friendly system automatically opens all the doors as the driver gets close to the car and provides remote locking (accompanied by audible confirmation) as they walk away. The driver does not need to take their key out to start the vehicle thanks to the new start/stop button.
Climate control is now available for the first time and the improved layout of the cabin features three rotary controls for this matching the three air vents located at the top of the dashboard.
The All-New Duster is also available with Blind Spot Warning. Four ultrasound sensors located on either side of the vehicle both front and rear detect any other vehicles, including motorcycles and trucks, coming from the rear or the side. A warning light flashes in the door mirror housing if any danger is detected and the new car is now safer thanks to its reinforced vehicle frame, new seat frames, curtain airbags and automatic headlight activation – all features never previously seen in the Dacia range.
Dacia Duster core features
A genuine SUV for everyday use
The All-New Duster carries over the same off-roading credentials that helped to make the previous model such a success. Although visually a much more imposing car, the All-New Duster offers dimensions close to those of its predecessor:
The car features a multi-view camera which incorporates four cameras (one at the front, one on either side and one at the rear). The system allows the driver to view the area around the vehicle and manoeuvre in complete peace of mind when using the vehicle off road. It is also useful to help with parking and is activated automatically when reverse gear is engaged.
There’s a choice of five trim levels, from the entry-level Access
through to the lavishly equipped Techroad version. Duster continues to
be available with TCe 130 and 150 petrol engines as well as the Blue dCi
115 diesel engine.
Dacia has added a new entry-level TCe 100 engine to the Duster line-up, replacing the SCe 115. The new-generation engine significantly reduces fuel consumption and substantially boosts performance over the outgoing SCe engine. The CO2 emissions and fuel consumption of the Duster TCe 100 are 18 per cent lower than the SCe 115 that it replaces, at 126g/km CO2 and 48.7 - 49.5mpg (WLTP) respectively.
