The interior layout, fit and finish

Driving position and dashboard

The Dacia Duster is tall enough to deliver a lofty driver's perch – just the ticket for a family SUV – but you might struggle to get comfortable. For a start, there’s a shortage of space for your left foot to fit between the side of the footwell and the clutch pedal, and the entry-level Essential trim misses out on driver's seat height and lumbar adjustment (that comes as standard only from Comfort trim).

The driver's seat is comfortable enough to sit on for a long trip but doesn't offer much in the way of side support through corners. A height-adjustable steering wheel is standard on all models but you have to step up to mid-spec comfort trim if you want a central armrest. 

The limited equipment list of the entry-level Essential trim means you can forget about getting any visibility aids, but mid-level Comfort trim has rear parking sensors and a rear-view camera. Range-topping Prestige adds a ‘multiview’ camera (which incorporates four cameras) that allows you to carefully place your front wheels when parking or tackling a narrow off-road track, although the resolution of the cameras is low compared with what you get in something pricier such as a Skoda Karoq.

All Dusters benefit from LED daytime running lights, indicators and low beam headlights (with automatic main beam activation as standard). Front fog lights are added from Comfort trim.
