Review

With a low starting price, plenty of kit and decent residuals, the Dacia Duster represents good value for money, but you have to be willing to live with certain compromises (both dynamic and safety-oriented) to reap those rewards.

Our favourite Duster trim includes 16in alloy wheels, heated electric door mirrors, a central armrest, a rear-view camera and an 8in touchscreen infotainment system.

Our pick of the engines should return more than 40mpg in everyday driving and has a 0-62mph time of 10.6sec.
