DACIA ADDS NEW ENTRY LEVEL TCE 100 ENGINE TO DUSTER LINEUP

  • New entry-level TCe 100 engine now available on Duster
  • Replacing the SCe 115, the new-generation engine improves performance while reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions
  • Duster is the most affordable SUV in the UK
  • Duster is now available from £10,995 with the new entry level engine

Dacia has added a new entry-level TCe 100 engine to the Duster line-up, replacing the SCe 115. The new-generation engine significantly reduces fuel consumption and substantially boosts performance over the outgoing SCe engine. The CO2 emissions and fuel consumption of the Duster TCe 100 are 18 per cent lower than the SCe 115 that it replaces, at 126g/km CO2 and 48.7 - 49.5mpg (WLTP) respectively.  

The indirect injection three-cylinder petrol engine is lighter and more compact than the engine it replaces. The TCe 100 features a turbocharger with an electrically controlled waste gate, an exhaust manifold partially integrated into the cylinder head, twin variable valve timing for intake and bore spray coating.

The new engine is available in 4x2 drivetrain on the Access, Essential and Comfort trim levels of Duster, priced from £10,995. Mated to a five-speed manual gearbox, the TCe 100 offers better performance both in the city and out on the open road. With 100hp and 260 Nm of torque a 2,000 rpm, it boasts greater energy efficiency and enhanced responsiveness thanks to the turbo, with 66 per cent more torque than the SCe 115.

The second-generation Duster has proved a big hit with UK car buyers since launch with a staggering 89 per cent increase in registrations YTD compared to 2018. In all, nearly 10,000 Dusters have found new homes since the start of 2019, making it the brand’s most successful model this year.

The Dacia Duster range starts at just £10,995. There’s a choice of five trim levels, from the entry-level Access through to the lavishly equipped Techroad version. Duster continues to be available with TCe 130 and 150 petrol engines as well as the Blue dCi 115 diesel engine.

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.
