Unveiled at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show, Dacia Duster is clearly a 4x4. Its front end conveys an impression of rugged strength, while the wide wheel arches, striking chrome-finish grille trim and protective bumper leave no doubt as to its DNA. Viewed from the side, its high ground clearance, clearly marked wheel arches and body protection encourage the driver to take on even the toughest roads and tracks.
All-terrain vehicles are often bulky, but not Dacia Duster. Just 4.31m long and 1.82m wide, it sports compact dimensions. At the same time, it can accommodate up to five adults in comfort with highly competitive boot capacity of up to 475 dm3 (depending on versions). With the rear seat folded, the load volume can total up to 1,636 dm3.
Dacia Duster is also a safe vehicle, with an array of active safety features including ABS and EBA, as well as ESC, under-steer control and traction control (optional). In terms of passive safety, it features two front airbags (head/optional thorax) and three-point seatbelts with load limiters at the front.
To meet a wide variety of needs, Dacia Duster is available on all markets in a 4x2 version for customers looking for a high, reassuring driving position, and in a 4x4 version for more versatile usage. In terms of engines, Dacia Duster ships with the dCi 85 and 110 diesel engines, and the 1.6 16v 105 petrol engine.
Dacia Duster is built at the Pitesti plant (Romania), an ISO 14001 certified site.
