How much does it cost to run a Dacia Duster 4x4?
Despite the low cost to buy, not all engines in the Duster line-up are inexpensive to run. The 1.6-litre petrol has a WLTP combined fuel economy figure of just 36.7mpg, which isn’t particularly good. This is probably why it was replaced by a turbocharged 1.0-litre that has a much better rating of 49.5mpg. The more popular 1.3 TCe exists in 128bhp and 148bhp forms; both manage 47.0mpg, but four-wheel drive knocks the higher-powered version back to 44.4mpg.
The two diesels are the economy stars with 64.2mpg for the front-wheel-drive car and 60.1mpg for the four-wheel-drive model.
The two diesels put out the least amount of CO2, with figures of 115g/km for the 4x2 and 123g/km for the 4x4. This is then followed by the 1.0 TCe at 126g/km, while both the 128bhp and 148bhp versions of the 1.3 TCe emit the same amount of greenhouse gases at 137g/km. Unless it comes with 4x4; then it's 140g/km.
As expected, the thirstiest 1.6 SCe petrol is the worst for emissions at 149g/km for the 4x2 and 158g/km for the 4x4.
All Dusters will be charged under the current road tax system. The current rate is £150 a year. But because no Dacia costs more than £40,000 when new, all will escape the additional fee applied to such expensive vehicles.

The fixed-price monthly servicing plan Dacia offers customers of its new cars isn’t transferable to subsequent owners, but even so, maintenance costs are pretty reasonable.
An entry-level 1.6 SCe Access model will sit in insurance group 8, while a top-spec diesel Prestige will be in 15. This is a fair bit lower than rivals such as the Seat Ateca and Kia Sportage, although, in fairness, both of these can be had with more powerful engines.
