The headline news about the Dacia Duster range is its ultra-low starting price – far lower than any family SUV rival. But we recommend the mid-level Comfort trim, which is priced inline with an MG ZS, but the Duster will still end up costing you less to run over three years. It has some obvious shortcomings, such as its so-so handling and low-rent interior, but if you want cheap, no-frills motoring with more than enough everyday practicality, it's unrivalled.get the best price
The trimSee full equipment
Entry-level trim keeps the price low but it’s very hard to recommend because it’s desperately short on kit. Electric front windows the only real luxury, because otherwise you get black bumpers, a one-piece folding rear seat bench, 16in steel wheels, manually adjustable door mirrors and no air conditioning. There isn't even a radio, driver’s seat height adjustment, a USB input socket or trim covers for the steel wheels.
