  • Owners praised the car’s value for money, looks, technology and driving experience

The Dacia Duster has been handed a coveted Good Housekeeping Reader Recommended accolade, with the magazine’s survey revealing that an impressive 92 per cent of Dacia Duster-owning readers would happily recommend the car to friends, relatives and colleagues.

Based on the analysis of owner questionnaires by the expert panel at the Good Housekeeping Institute, this accolade is only awarded to products that excel in their field when judged against four key areas of performance/enjoyment, overall acceptability, whether they would purchase again and, crucially, whether they’d recommend it to friends and family.

Not only were Duster owners keen to recommend the cars to others, 85 per cent claimed the Duster was good value for money, while overall they rated the car an impressive 8.4 out of 10. Summing up their Dacia Duster ownership experience to the Good Housekeeping Institute, readers had the following to say:

  • ‘Far better for the money, beats more expensive competitors’ hands down.’
  • ‘Value for money compared to other SUVs.’
  • ‘It looks stylish, has innovative technology and a quality interior and exterior.’

Reflecting on more success for the Dacia Duster, Ben Fletcher, Head of Dacia UK said: ‘We’re hugely excited by the positive response and feedback that owners have for the Duster and delighted that the car has received a Good Housekeeping Reader Recommended stamp of approval. Any recognition is an honour, but to receive such great feedback from happy owners is the ultimate accolade.’

The Dacia Duster range starts at just £10,995. There’s a choice of three petrol engines and one diesel model, plus five trim levels, from the entry-level Access through to the lavishly equipped flagship Techroad version.

About Dacia
Dacia has a long history associated with Renault, the French brand first working with Dacia plants in Romania in the 1960s, before acquiring them fully in 1999. The brand concept is simple: to shake up preconceived ideas. Dacia produces spacious, robust, high-quality vehicles of original design that are affordable for everybody.

Dacia vehicles offer exceptional value for money. Reliable and resistant, they embody the best of Renault expertise. Relaunched by parent company Groupe Renault in 2004, the Dacia range has been expanding constantly and buyers have a wide array of vehicles to choose from, ranging from Dacia Duster, a sporty all-terrain vehicle, to family vehicles such as the Dacia Sandero and Dacia Logan MCV. The concept continues to enjoy great success with over 5.8 million Dacias sold in Europe since the brand’s revival in 2004. 

Dacia launched in the UK in January 2013 and enjoyed the most successful start ever for a new car brand in the UK. Dacia was named as the most recommended car brand in 2018 in a list compiled by YouGov in its BrandIndex, beating 34 other manufacturers. Dacia was also named Best Value Brand at the Auto Trader New Car Awards 2019, voted for by 63,000 real UK car owners. Dacia was one of only four out of 36 manufacturers to receive five-star reliability ratings in the 2017 Which? Car Survey, outperforming many well established and premium brands. The Dacia Sandero has been awarded the title of “Best Small Car under £12,000” by What Car? for seven consecutive years (2019, 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013). More than 150,000 Dacia vehicles have been sold in the UK to date.
