The Dacia Duster is the flagship model of the Romanian manufacturer. Prices, engines, finishes… Find out everything there is to know about the SUV!
Last February, the Romanian manufacturer Dacia celebrated the 2 millionth Duster sold in nearly 60 countries worldwide. Launched for the first time in 2010, the Dacia Duster has conquered its public with her adventurous look and his very attractive price. Dacia was also very strong in its communication. Many motorists still remember the famous slogan “another one in the duster” in commercials.
Recently, the brand has just affixed its new identity on its vehicles. The new Dacia emblem and logo are now located respectively on the grille and on the rear of the body. The manufacturer also took the opportunity to rename finish names that it offers on its models.

Very little different upholstery between the models
On all four trim levels, the upholstery changes very little between the versions. They are all in black fabricwith light stitching on the Expression, Journey and Journey + finishes. Fun fact, the name of the upholstery comes from the old denominations of the finishes. The Essential version is therefore entitled to Essential upholstery, the Expression finish to Comfort upholstery, and the Duster Journey and Journey + are entitled to Prestige upholstery.
A real equipment gap between the versions
The Dacia Duster has a reputation that it does not budge on occasion, with first-generation copies available for less than €8,000!
