This Dacia Duster SUV 2019 in-depth review touches on all the main characteristics that we love about this car.

This SUV offers all the practicality and space you want from a family-sized SUV, for the price of a super Mini. Recently voted as most affordable car on the market to buy and to run, with prices starting from just £10,995, it even manages to undercut the price of many of its rivals. The good news is that the new Duster picks up where the old model left off, and even manages to improve in certain key areas.

Visually, it looks very similar to the old Duster. It’s more attractive and more upmarket than before, with three-section LED daytime running lights, signature rear lights and a new grille combining to give it a sharp new look.

The interior has been given a subtle makeover, too, with the quality of the materials taken up a notch or two, more comfortable seats and a repositioned infotainment screen. It’s not the last word in luxury, and neither is it a particularly inspiring cabin, but for the money it’s hard to fault.

It’s also incredibly spacious, with ample room for five adults and up to 445 litres of boot space with the rear seats in place. Dacia has also improved the soundproofing, upgraded the electric power steering and added keyless entry to the higher trim levels.

The conclusion: the new Dacia Duster 2019 SUV offers excellent value for money.
