2018 Dacia Duster Specs, Review And Release Date – Fans are going used to new crossover made by Romanian carmaker Dacia. Well, it is not completely their work, since this company is owned by better know French brand Renault, and from this cooperation came Duster SUV. With experience from sedan segment, where Renault cars are well known for their comfort, it could be carried over to another class, even though nevertheless, Renault is not one of the most favorite vehicle in this categories. That’s why we eagerly expect 2018 Dacia Duster. It looks like there are delays in the development of some parts, although this crossover was announced for 2017.
2018 Dacia Duster Future
The Dacia Duster, sold as the Renault Duster in India, was first introduced at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show. Three years later, the compact crossover was given a facelift at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show (2013 IAA). At the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show (2015 IAA), more updates were introduced and an Indian specification 2016 Renault Duster was showcased at the Auto Expo last week.
2018 Dacia Duster Exterior And Interior
Duster nameplate is raising with every new model, according to market results. The breakthrough happened in 2013 when this car moved the top of the selling tables. That meant collaboration is successful, as well as the idea, and it should be continued. Back then in 2013 crossover had many cosmetic changes, and similar is expected of 2018 Dacia Duster. New SUV is larger than before; wheelbase is 15 cm longer, and the vehicle is coming wider.
This could bring another, the third row of seats in the cabin, which could be a double-edged sword. Old users got used to the current version of Duster, but it could be solved by adding 3-row seating models as particular trim. This is not the only news on the crossover. Since it has the new dashboard with updated infotainment and safety features controls through touch screen display.
2018 Dacia Duster Engine
Engine range won’t suffer much change comparing to the predecessor of 2018 Dacia Duster. A 2.-l 4-cylinder unit is taking its position again following the hood of SUV. A 4-speed automated transmission distributes power to front wheels. There are other two possible driving styles available for upcoming Duster SUV – Lock and Auto. The vehicle can develop 135 horsepower and probably 150 lb-ft of torque. This is not a big performer, with modest top speed and acceleration. On the other side, the fuel economy of the 2018 Duster should be its main advantage over its competition. Also, the price is unknown yet. Dacia is cheaper than rivals. This is the different good thing for all fans of the Romanian carmaker.
2018 Dacia Duster Release Date And Price
Dacia hasn’t released any official details, but the new seven-seat Duster is expected to hit showrooms in 2018. We expect it to undercut the likes of the Renault Kadjar and Kia Carens so entry-level models should cost less than £18,000.
