Dacia presents its future SUV, big brother of the Duster, in the guise of a show car. Here is the Bigster. Expected arrival on the roads in 2023.
The Renault group did not do in the lace this Thursday, January 14, 2021 by presenting its new strategic plan Renaulution. The firm, which must emerge from its current difficulties (more than seven billion euros in net losses in the first half of 2020), has announced the launch of 24 new models by 2025, of which at least 10 will be electric.
At the head of these novelties is obviously the future Renault 5. A modernized and zero emission version of the legendary city car which was launched in 1972 and sold more than 5.5 million units until 1984.
Alongside it, another highly anticipated new model was also announced, and even unveiled as a concept. This is the Dacia Bigster, a future SUV, big brother of the Duster, which will replace the Lodgy in the range of the Romanian manufacturer.
A rugged SUV, no frills
The 4.60 m long model has a very robust look with a substantial ground clearance, large wheels, a massive front face, a marked bonnet and widened fenders. Without forgetting the essential elements of protection at the level of the wheel arches and the rockers, which were made from raw recycled plastics, specifies Dacia. Not to spoil anything, the dark green color further reinforces the adventurer side of the machine.
A new, very stylish logo for Dacia
Still a design issue, we will also notice a new light signature in Y and of course the new logo of the brand which sits in the center of the grille and now consists of a D and a C with a very angular design.
“Hungry for the outdoors and dusty roads”, the Bigster “offers without superfluity everything that is essential for an SUV in its segment.”, Summarizes Dacia, which also promises “generous interior roominess”.
The interior could be modeled on that of the new Sandero.
Finally, based on the modular platform CMF-B of the Renault-Nissan Alliance, the Bigster will benefit from “alternative and hybrid engines”. An E-Tech hybrid version (140 hp as on the last Clio?) Would be on the program, which would be a great first for Dacia.
A price always “low-cost”
And last good news and not the least: the price of the Bigster will remain contained. “This SUV is Dacia’s recipe that will make the C segment accessible, at the price of a vehicle in the lower segment.”, Announces the brand. We can not wait to see that. See you in 2023 for marketing!
