  • Dacia introduces new generation diesel 4x4 engine to All-New Duster range
  • Priced from £15,695 and available across three trim levels
  • Available to order now with customer deliveries expected from the end of November
  • The award winning, no-nonsense All-New Duster is the UK’s most affordable SUV, priced from £9,995

The new generation Blue dCi 115 engine in 4x4 drivetrain on All-New Duster is now available to order, joining the Blue dCi 115 4x2. Featuring the latest systems for reducing emissions, these new engines guarantee increased performance and optimised consumption, still at unbeatable prices.

In addition to the “selective catalytic reduction” system (SCR), the Blue dCi 115 engines operate with a new Air-Water exchanger, a higher injection pressure (2,000 bars) and new gearbox ratios. The Blue dCi 115 4x4 engine has a CO2 output of 123g/km and achieves 60.1mpg (WLTP) with 260Nm of torque at 2,000 rpm.

The Blue dCi 115 4x4 is available with a manual transmission across three trim levels; Essential, Comfort and Prestige. In Essential trim, the Blue dCi 4x4 engine is available from £15,695 and features 16-inch 'Fidji' steel wheels, body coloured front and rear bumpers, manual air conditioning, heat adjustable driver’s seat, DAB radio with steering-column mounted controls and Bluetooth connectivity.

Comfort trim, available from £17,395, adds 16-inch ‘Cyclade’ alloy wheels, front-seat armrest, leather steering wheel, graphite cloth upholstery, rear parking camera and sensors, electric front and rear windows, heated and electrically adjustable door mirrors, MediaNav 7" touchscreen multimedia system (Satellite navigation, USB and AUX connection points) and a 7-function on-board computer, all as standard.

In top-of-the-range Prestige specification, the Blue dCi 4x4 is available from £18,695 and adds even more luxuries with brand new 17-inch ‘Diamond-cut’ alloy wheels, multi-view camera, blind spot warning, climate control and keyless entry.

The All-New Duster carries over the same off-roading credentials that helped make the previous model such a success with a high ground clearance of 210mm, approach and departure angles of 30 and 33 degrees respectively as well as Hill Descent Control and Hill Start Assist. Also as standard on 4x4 versions is a 4x4 monitor that incorporates a compass and notifies the driver of the vehicle’s angle in real time. 

The award winning, no-nonsense All-New Duster is the UK’s most affordable SUV, priced from £9,995.

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 light commercial vehicles or family vehicles such as the Dacia Sandero and Dacia Logan MCV.  The concept continues to enjoy great success with over 5 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 Best Value Brand at the Auto Trader New Car Awards 2018, voted for by 43,000 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 six consecutive years (2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013).  More than 120,000 Dacia vehicles have been sold in the UK to date.
