Default A revolution called duster

Having sold over two million units since launch, Duster, a vehicle with an international calling, has become one of Groupe Renault’s top-selling models. Dacia's SUV has made its mark in its segment. In seven years, it has won over customers looking for a versatile, reliable and affordable vehicle. Duster's powers of attraction are practically limitless. Its highly attractive price, top-level off-road abilities, robustness and design leave no-one indifferent. Read on to find out more about a revolutionary model that has carved out a special place in the wide world of SUVs.

Dacia Duster: a scandalously affordable SUV

Marketing an SUV at the price of a city car was a bold move. When Dacia made that move in 2010, it hit on a major success. The theme of affordability was the focus of the Duster ad, in which a somewhat caricatural couple ask about the price of Duster after test driving it. When told that prices start at €11,900, the customer is offended: "You don't think we're going to spend so little?" The Dacia Duster phenomenon was born. The model sold in over 450,000 units in three years. Building on that success, the brand launched a restyled Duster in 2013 that met with the same enthusiasm, the car’s now enviable popularity being expressed from 2016 on in the advertising slogan, “Another one drives a Duster”.

Duster's price was clearly important at a time of economic crisis, but the car's success cannot be reduced to its attractive price alone. The model's intrinsic all-terrain qualities have also contributed largely to its success. The car's design leaves no room for doubt as to its SUV nature. Without being over the top, the styling is that of a true 4WD model. The front end exudes a sense of robustness. The wide, curvaceous wings, double light units and protective bumper clearly express the car's SUV DNA. The raised ground clearance, large wheels (16") and multiple protective features invite drivers to venture out on the toughest roads and tracks.

The interior is equally outstanding, with a modern, functional and modular cabin. And the impertinence of Dacia's SUV does not stop there, as it features C-segment equipment at B-segment prices.

Dacia shakes up established cues once again

With the launch of Duster, Dacia confirmed its boldness, first seen six years earlier with the release of Logan. The Dacia brand became a benchmark in new approaches to automotive consumption. It shook up established cues once again with the launch of Duster, a true, roomy and versatile SUV for the price of a compact car.

As with all Dacia models, Duster targets customers looking to buy a fairly-priced car, an affordable vehicle with the equipment responding to their needs. In addition to its affordability, the brand moved into a new territory: the SUV market. This served to win over new customers looking for a car with real all-terrain abilities. These new customers include first-time buyers and those who would otherwise have bought a used car. With a new market and new customer base, the Dacia brand is perpetuating its success and even bringing together its own community. The Dacia community organises picnics that every year draw thousands of people in many of the brand's countries. Dacia customers are true fans, highly active in the social networks. More than simple customers, they are the brand's best ambassadors.

Duster, out to conquer the world

Duster was created in response to a simple observation: a true need exists worldwide for roomy, robust and affordable 4x4 cars. But at the time that need was mostly unfulfilled. Which is why Dacia came up with a world first and developed an SUV primarily targeting developing markets. The needs of European motorists were also taken into account from the start of the project.

In developing countries, the middle classes aspire to owning modern vehicles illustrating their social success. They are also looking for robust, reliable and versatile cars that can stand up to severe and varied climates and conditions of use (such as long distances and steep, almost impassable roads). Existing SUVs, most of them imported, often exceed the budgets of the middle classes.

In Europe, Dacia's success demonstrates the existence of customers looking for modern, reliable and affordable cars. But as a whole, the 4x4 offer, though broad, is more about ostentatious and expensive models – often not adapted to off-road use – rather than functional and affordable all-terrain vehicles.

Launched initially under the Dacia brand, Duster was marketed with the Renault badge in 2011 in Latin America (including Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, Chile and Colombia) and subsequently in Russia and India. Under the Renault brand, Duster is a true image driver. It targets motorists looking for a prestigious SUV with real off-road abilities. The European version of Duster has been adapted to respond to the specific expectations of international customers, including an "extreme cold" version for Russia, a flex-fuel model for Brazil, and a right-hand-drive model with a special design for India.

Yeah I didn't realise how popular they were. They've only been in the UK a few years but the Europeans have been driving them for years now.

I traded in my 8 year old Jaguar XF for my 2019 Duster and the initial response from several of my friends was “ are you sure”. But on walking round and sitting in the Duster all of them are genuinely impressed, so much so that one of them has just ordered one. I have owned a Logan before and would recommend a Dacia to all.
