Dacia Duster

(2017 - present)

The Dacia Duster is a small SUV/crossover, priced at the budget end of the market. The current model is the second generation, which was launched in late 2017 before going on sale in the UK in the middle of 2018.

The Duster has received a broad range of scores and reviews from the UK media, ranging from outstanding to outright recommendations not to buy one. It has been praised for providing good value for money, but it is criticised for its driving dynamics and poor safety rating compared to other cars in its class.
