The Dacia Duster is cheaper than any rival you wish to name. It has some obvious short-comings as a result of its low price, including so-so handling and a low-rent interior, but if you want cheap, no-frills motoring with a big boot and more than enough everyday practicality, it's unrivalled.

This trim does what it says on the tin. Air conditioning is the biggest bonus over Access, while height adjustment for the driver’s seat, 60/40 split-folding rear seats and a radio with steering wheel-mounted controls are welcome additions.


1.6 SCe

It’s not the most refined or most potent petrol engine we’ve ever driven, but it does deliver adequate performance, reasonable fuel economy and is considerably cheaper than the diesel option.
