Found 3rd Jul 2012
The Dacia Duster is the first crossover SUV developed by the Romanian automaker Automobile Dacia.

Based on the Nissan B0 platform, the Duster is offered with two-wheel or four-wheel drive. The 4x4 variants make use of Nissan's all-wheel drive system.

Standard warranty 3yrs, however you can extend to 5 or 7yrs for a reasonable price.

Basically a budget Nissan Juke, but more practical...

It's not a Sandero though...

Romanian car maker?

Hmmmm

Diesel version (2WD) does a combined 56mpg. Not bad at all.

You will get what you pay for with this. Fairly untested in the uk.

SHAME ITS A 1.6 PETROL, no A.C just genral spec

yes, no special offer on the diesel, putting the price up to £11,500.

Perhaps Renault cars but don't Renault own Nissan and therefore considering that this car is based on a Nissan it may be more likely to have Nissan reliability than Renault?

EDIT: Ok, I've read the reviews now...recycled Renault parts. 2 of the reviews are quite positive though.

That sounds sensible to me. Makes the deal more appealing.

"Dacia Duster...........will wipe the floor with the opposition."

I'll get my coat.

These are EVERYWHERE in France

This could be the car that saves Renault

no dealers around here selling it !

will Steer wheel clear judging by the charactor of majority of the people it EXPORTS.

Dacia Duster - call me brand concious if you like, but I would not like to drive a car called a Duster LOL unless it was a souped up 7.3L V12 that would make other cars eat dust!

This clearly isn't...so i'm out and this is cold for me i'm afraid!

Insecure ?

Agree with Sir Charles,
absolutely everywhere in France from Autoroutes to back lanes very, very, popular . Seem quite nippy , seen a few towing caravans up very long autoroute banks with some alacrity. Good looking car too, in a chunky sort of way. Lots of diesels with them paying an extortionate £1.03 a litre.

so that's what Mr Muscle drives!

Original Poster

They have been around in Germany and France for a few years, they have a good reputation over there...

seems like a bargain for a car that size with that fuel economy, even given the undoubted basic trim.

This is list price so should be able to negotiate some kind of dealer discount too - who pays list price for a new car these days?

Unknown until reviews come out, suspect you'd be better off with a 2nd User Quashqai

Love the picture in the media gallery so you can see the interior. Theirs a great big surf board in the way, worrying. oO

Bargain particularly for God quality ! . If its good enought for the big fella to park his bum in its sure good enough for mine.

I wudnt get 1.6 tho only if desiel was this price

James May will be having an orgasm looking at this!

I'd prefer a Dacia Sandero.....

Dacia = Logan = Renault.

So most cars are made in various factories around the world; wherever labour is cheaper. Dacia is co-owned by Renault; the managing director is French, the designs are French. Funny thing is that they have garages that are often opposite Renault garages, and that their biggest clients are in France! If you worry about it being "Dacia" because they used to be crappy cars made behind the iron curtain, think Skoda. I understand they are OK nowadays because they are owned by...er...Volkswagen. There you go. Buy a Dacia. Until fairly recently their cars were so popular that there was a waiting list to buy them.

Renault, the car maker that gave us wind oO

Yes, owned by Renault.

Used one of these as a hire car in France last month. Drive was pleasant enough. For this money you know to expect a basic car - and it was, but to be fair a good 'basic' car. If I was in the market for a £9k car though, i'd probably go the route of used.

Yes, owned by Renault.



Romanian? You sure? I'd have thought they were Polish.












(duster - polish - Polish - polish - oh forget it)

From the Nexus 7 posts - this can't be a deal, it's at the RRP.

Seems good value to me, not sure how much one will be worth 2nd hand though.

looks great

Rear 3/4 view very Jeep.

Cheap car that will no doubt have lots of electrical niggles and noises, so as long as you can tolerate your local dealership for the next 7 years, looks a great buy.

Edit: Actually on steel wheels it looks like a soft Lada Niva (not a bad thing if that's your sort of thing).

The one thing you can be assured of is catastrophic depreciation.
