New Dacia Duster Quotes

Performance

The entry-level Duster uses a 1.6-litre petrol engine that needs to be revved hard, whereas the 1.5 diesel in other models suits the car well particularly when compared to the Peugeot Partner Tepee. the Duster sprints from 0-60mph in 11.5 seconds leaving the Peugeot trailing a 0-60mph in 12.2 seconds. Both front- and four-wheel-drive diesels are available, but the petrol is front-wheel drive only. The 109bhp 1.5 dCi diesel is also taken from the Renault line-up and is the sole engine available on Ambiance and Laureate models. Although noisy, it offers decent pace, thanks to the six-speed manual gearbox. Overall the performance across the range is exceptional, book a test drive with any model on askaprice.com

Running Costs

The start price for a Duster is just over £8,000 which is affordable and it is also cheap to run, as the two-wheel drive diesel will return 56.5mpg with 130g/km of Co2 emissions which will keep the road tax low. Comparatively the Peugeot Partner Tepee will only return 45.6mpg and has higher Co2 emissions of 135g/km, it also runs a higher starting cost at £13, 945.If you opt for a four-wheel drive Duster, the fuel economy drops but not by much to 53.3mpg and the emissions range to 137g/km.

Equipment

On the basic trim, kit includes power steering, electric windows and central locking, however the mid spec Ambiance trims have added kit features of CD player, USB and Bluetooth connectivity and height adjustable seating. In terms of space the Duster beats out the Yeti and Nissan Qashqai with seats down option and a sizeable load area similar to that on the Audi A6 Avant.
