What alternatives should I consider to a used Dacia Duster 4x4?

There aren’t many rivals at this price to challenge the Dacia Duster, particularly if you need a rugged four-wheel drive car. 

However, if you just want a practical five-seater SUV, the Kia Sportage has much more equipment, a far plusher interior and a longer warranty for a similar amount of money. It’s also a very dependable SUV according to our reliability data.

For a bit more money you could own the better handling Seat Ateca. The boot is similarly sized, and you’d be hard-pressed to notice a difference in interior space. There’s a much more intuitive infotainment system to use, too.

Verdict

No frills motoring with a certain amount of rugged charm; the Dacia Duster is surprisingly capable off-road when equipped with 4x4 and very practical, too

  • A lot of car for the money
  • Big boot
  • 4x4 version very capable
  • Sparse equipment on lower trims
  • Interior feels cheap
  • Disappointing Euro NCAP safety rating
