New Dacia Duster vs MG GS

A Duster in Comfort specification comes with a 7.0in touchscreen. Bluetooth, a DAB radio and sat-nav are included and it’s simple to use when stationary but trickier when driving, due to the absence of physical buttons. While it’s decent for the price, it isn’t anywhere as sophisticated as those in family SUVs such as the Skoda Karoq and Seat Ateca. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring are standard, though.


Although you get an 8.0in touchscreen as standard on mid-spec Excite trim and above, there’s no such luxury for the entry-level Explore. You get an FM radio and a USB socket, but that’s about it on the ‘technology’ front. You don’t even get Bluetooth. You’re hardly any better off with the touchscreen anyway; it’s one of the worst in this class to use, with complicated menus and sluggish responses to inputs.
