Default Facelifted Dacia Duster does not disappoint with fresh modern looks

The face lifted Dacia Duster debuted in Sept. at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

Changes include a new grille, lower-set air intake and redesigned headlamps that integrate daytime running lights. Roof bars were also added with Duster inscriptions on them.Taillights were updated, as well as the addition of 16" 'dark metal' rims.

The face lifted Duster also received a brand new interior, including a completely new dashboard and centre console.

The standard Duster runs on a 6-speed manual gearbox attached to a 1.5 dCi engine with 110 hp and a maximum torque of 240 Nm. It will go 0-100 km/h in 12.2 seconds and a top speed 169 km/h. Fuel efficiency comes in at 6 litres/100km/h.

I just really wish it was styled more like it's concept which wasn't too far off from being a production model. If they didn't want to make the changes something standard it could have been part of a premium package.

Exactly what changes are you talking about? I think that the new Duster is really nice. It does keep some of the silhouette of the Duster concept and tail light design and such. We all knew it wouldn't be exactly like the concept.

specifically the headlights and tail lights. The concept had better headlights and tail lights, something that can easily be sent to production

Do you think that it was cost that drove them to change the head and taillights? I can't see any other reason why they would.

Cost is a key thing. They have to build this car within a budget, so likely they had to lack in some area so they can improve in others. No problem with cheaping out on things like a headlight, as long as light output is good enough, most won't care of complain

for 12 thousand pounds you're not paying for styling. you're paying because you need to get from a to b.
