With the permission of Nissan Qashqai, there are not many other SUV with a level of sales in our market as stable, retaining for years place of honor in ranking SUV: always among the top five best sellers. Its cruising level is also much more stable than some direct competitors, whose greater or less demand cycles sometimes responds: offers, updates range, etc. Unaware promotions, with clear accounts, with a well structured and defined range, the range Duster It has not stopped evolving and has made a significant portfolio of clients, safely, see him more than the lowest market price. Here are some reasons why I would buy me a Dacia Duster.

Dacia Duster: for its price, but is it really so low?

Yes, but it depends. It is true that Dacia has the honor to offer the SUV with the lowest price of the whole market with its version 1.6 petrol with 115 hp and finish Base. You can buy it by 10,900 euros. Its engine, updated in years but it should be as robust as the rest of the car, but there is a gasoline engine much more efficient, pleasant and recommended, 1.2 TEFC 125 hp. You have it in versions 4x2 and 4x2 15,980 euros 13,980 euros. It is a much quieter propeller and, if possible, also more refined. Duster makes infinitely more enjoyable and faster and spend less, but it is also a propellant more "elements" the 1.6: with small capacity, its 125 hp come from overfeeding, although it should not worry about the reliability of Dacia brand every time, at least right now, is touting its cars 5 year warranty - up to 180,000 km in total, but watch the fine print and conditions depending on the kilometers you reach the third year-.

It is in gasoline where you find the cheapest models on the market. But often the aforementioned Dacia Duster 1.6 115, for Peugeot 2008 Pure Tech 1.2 82 hp'd pay 14,200 euros for a Fiat 500 X 1.6 E-Torq 110 hp, 14,300 euros or, more complete choice among SUV gasoline equivalent, Suzuki Cross-one S 1.6 VVT, 15,700 euros.

Diesel are two thrusters offered by the Duster, always from the 1.5 dCi engine also uses a Nissan Juke or Renault Captur. You have a Dacia Duster 1.5 dCi 4x2 90 hp from 14,481 euros -for that price, you not find another SUV diesel so cheap-; and dCi 110 hp from 15,080 euros in 4x2 version and 17,080 euros from 4x4 all-wheel drive except the Fiat Panda 1.3 Multijet 4x4, no other car "equivalent" diesel engine and wheel drive costing less.

Of all the available thrusters would recommend any of the 1.5 dCi versions. And between the two power levels available, the difference between 90 and 110 hp is only 600 euros, I think money well spent given the better responsiveness. finish Laureate and 4x2, the Dacia Duster 1.5 dCi with 110 hp 16,430 euros It would be my choice in the end. If you refinance to 60 months you would pay an entry euros and 1,600 euros monthly installments of 347.77, with the operation I was given 22,953 euros more than 845 life insurance you have to pay mandatory.

All-wheel drive would cost an additional 2,000 euros. It is an element that is your choice, depending on the intended use of the car destinies.

Dacia Duster 1.5 dCi 110 Laureate sufficiently equipped

You know that Dacia is maca is not fancy, but for appearance and customization, the Dacia Duster is the most looks of all the models in the catalog of the brand. If you could "survive" no air conditioning, you could access the Ambiance finish, but I think you worth more directly go to Laureate that, in addition to adding more options, It includes standard elements that can be of extreme necessity depending on who is put controls: Steering wheel vertical adjustment, driver seat with height or electrically adjustable electric mirrors, plus knob and leather steering wheel. A Laureate also will get rear proximity sensor with and without camera or multimedia computer browser and touch screen 7 inches for only 230 euros. Among the mechanical elements that also stand out, include the Stop&Start or gearbox 6 speed.

Dacia Duster: Dynamically satisfactory

Dacia meet minimum, but Logan or Sandero and its derivatives, have also evolved very best. The Duster is, however, a light touch them driving, steering precision and sense of poise and dynamically is, without doubt, the best Dacia years. Today covered with mandatory safety standards, such as stability control, their behavior is not only perfectly normal, but also offers a touch of cushioning and frankly remarkable quality bacheo, It is one of the most desirable cars if you use the car very often bad roads or paved roads. I could not tell if a Duster will last more than another market model to a very demanding use, say that even nonchalant, but I guarantee you few cars in its class give that feeling of strength and enduring the harsh treatment.

In short, there is no truly remarkable critical point, because good behavior also have to add good braking ability and also very noble chassis always safe and predictable reactions. So, their weaknesses should be sought, for security purposes, in not a very favorable score in EuroNCAP tests, and as comfort or quality of life on board, at a somewhat elevated noise level.

Dacia Duster 1.5 dCi 110, a truly balanced engine

Among the less they spend SUV market will not find the Duster, but to take their engine models: Renault Captur or Kadjar, or Nissan Qashqai. Dacia announces an average consumption of 4,4 l / 100 km for the Duster 1.5 dCi 110 hp, but it is a figure that is much more consistent with reality than 3.8 l / 100 km of that Rernault Kadjar engined identical, so despite the official theoretical difference, retains the 1.5 dCi engine, also in the Duster, the same virtues that when mounted on the other brands of the group, including a very low cost of use. One difference is that the Duster, eg gearbox six marches have no guidance as "economic"With developments change as long as other models with which it shares mechanics, but in return, the Duster 1.5 dCi guarantees greater "usability" Y responsiveness in gear, satisfactorily implemented in agility response factor directly related to safety. Due to lack of insulation, Duster is, as I have already said, noisy, but I guarantee you your comfort levels are more than satisfactory.

Dacia Duster: good space in three dimensions

It costs little, has good performance, comfort and quality of suspensions, does not spend much and is not slow. And if you want, you can add all-wheel drive and go where I would not do it with many other SUV. Does the icing? A liveability not only above average, but with certain characteristics that make it unique among cars with length. One of them, a rear width handily exceeding the compact SUV, medium saloons and other major formats: its 139 cm are vital if you need to fill all seats. Nor lack good vertical dimension or space for more than satisfactory legs, all this, remember, in a car of 432 cm in which, incidentally, also find a capacity of remarkable load of 395 actual liters in 4x4 versions and above 500 liters in 4x2.
