2021 Dacia Duster – a new face, new technologies


Romanian Dacia has introduced a refreshed version of the Duster crossover, with numerous changes inside and out. The car got a new design of Y-shaped daytime running lights, modeled on the new Sandero.

The Duster also has LED front indicators, as well as LED lamps that illuminate the table, which further reduces power consumption and makes the whole car somewhat more efficient. New 16- and 17-inch wheels, which have been tested in a tunnel to improve aerodynamics, also contribute to this. The new wheels combined with the roof spoiler and rounded edges on the body help the Duster emit 5.8 grams of CO2 less per kilometer.

The cabin has been thoroughly redesigned and given a new multimedia system with an eight-inch screen. The system supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay technologies, and has a compass and vehicle tilt measurement in a 4 × 4 version. There are also new headrests, borrowed from Renault Clio. The upholstery in the cabin has also been changed and an armrest that can be moved backwards by 70mm has been added, and it contains a cup holder and a USB port in the back versions.

The most important mechanical change is the installation of a six-speed automatic transmission with two clutches. The EDC transmission is only available in combination with front-wheel drive and a 150hp petrol engine. If all-wheel drive is selected, a six-speed manual transmission is obtained. This transmission is combined with TCe 90 and TCe 130 engines. The only diesel engine is a 115hp dCi with two or four wheel drive and a manual transmission.

For now, there is no mention of a hybrid drive, but there is a Duster ECO-G 100 on offer, which has a tank for 50 liters of LPG instead of a spare wheel. This model has 9.5% lower CO2 emissions than gasoline.

Sales of the new Duster in Europe begin in September under the old brand. Dacia will start setting up its new logo from the second half of next year.
