Spotlight on… the Bigster Concept

Revealed at the Renaulution event, the Dacia Bigster Concept represents the brand’s plan to shake up the
C-segment – an area untouched by Dacia until now. As ever with Dacia, the production version of the Bigster will offer the benefits of a larger vehicle at the cost of one from the segment below, representing outstanding value.

The new SUV will be robust and spacious, offering customers everything they demand in a new vehicle without unnecessary frills, while remaining a true C-segment SUV perfectly fit for purpose.

Alejandro Mesonero-Romanos, Dacia Design Director, said: “Dacia Bigster Concept embodies the evolution of the brand. Essential with a touch of cool and an outdoor spirit. It proves that accessibility is not the opposite of attractiveness.”
