The new Dacia Duster 2017 is a next-generation model. The original Dacia Duster was introduced into the market in 2010 and since then it has proved to be a roaring success having sold more than 1 million units worldwide. The new 2017 model has the capacity to seat seven adults and rides on a new platform. There no doubts the fact that the new Dacia Duster is going to become a very popular model.
Dacia Duster 2017 – Exterior and Interior Design
On the outside, the new Dacia Duster will have a few design modifications that include a new pair of headlights and the front grille will also be new as too will be the fog lights. The Duster is also going to ride on alloy wheels and so, unsurprisingly it will have large wheel arches. At the back, the carmaker is going to introduce a new pair of taillights and the boot door will also be redesigned. Renault will probably use some of the design aspects that it has borrowed from the Duster Oroch Concept, which the car maker displayed at the auto show in Brazil in 2014.
The new Dacia Duster is also longer than its predecessor. This extra length will allow the carmaker to add a third row of seats. The additional two seats in the 3rd row are designed to comfortably accommodate two adults.
The dashboard looks very modern and has a brand new instrument cluster. The touchscreen console is also new as too is the addition of an automatic climate control system. The air-vents look very stylish and the steering wheel is equipped with a number of Bluetooth as well as stereo controls. The Dacia Duster 2017 also comes equipped with a number of safety features including anti-lock braking system (ABS) and a pair of airbags as well as a rear view camera that makes parking that much easier. The cabin remains more or less unchanged from the existing model but it does benefit from a few upgrades.
Dacia Duster 2017 – Engine and Performance
Under the hood, Renault will probably offer the same engine that currently powers up the existing model. This engine will be mated to an automatic transmission, which will be the same for the gasoline driven and diesel driven variants. The Dacia Duster 2017 will get a 1.6-liter petrol engine that is capable of producing 102 hp and 145 Nm of torque. This engine delivers a nice 130 hp. The car maker will also offer a diesel engine in the form of a 1.5-liter engine that is either capable of producing 84 hp plus 200 Nm of torque or with a little bit of tuning this diesel engine is also capable of delivering 108 hp and 248 Nm of torque. The diesel engine is designed to deliver between 90 and 130 hp.
Dacia Duster 2017 – Price and Release Date
The new Dacia Duster 2017 will probably be introduced into the market by next year. It will be sold as a 2017 model and will be an updated model that has much to offer. Renault, who produces the Dacia Duster, will in all probability launch its new vehicle by the fourth quarter of next year as a 2017 model.
