Review

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.

Trim: Prestige

There’s no doubting that this is the swankiest-looking Duster in the line-up but, at this kind of money, it is starting to invade the territory of more illustrious brands. That said, you do get climate control and additional driver’s aids, including blindspot monitoring and a multi-view rear camera.

Engine: 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.
