Dacia is displaying the facelifted Duster budget off-roader at the ongoing Frankfurt Motor Show in Germany.
Talking about the changes, there are not a lot of cosmetic updates in the exteriors as the only noticeable changes include the headlights, front grille, air intakes and alloy design. However, the company has also modified the roof bars which have slatted supports, while at the rear there are more chrome inserts and different badging. An “Adventure” exterior package comes with door sill protectors and flared wheel arches, whereas “Off-road” consists of a bull bar and satin chrome strips.
The interior was mostly carried over from the second-gen Logan/Sandero but with changes such as window controls positioned on the doors, new upholstery choices, revised seats and reinforced rear bench seat backs. Some new accessories have also been added such as a child seat, fire extinguisher kit, anti-theft system, snow chains, MEDIA NAV infotainment system (available for upper-spec trims) and Bluetooth connectivity support.
Motivation would now be provided by a more powerful 4-cylinder, 1.2-liter turbocharged gasoline engine that will generate an output of 125 HP (92 kW) which will be transferred to the front axle or all four wheels via a six-speed manual transmission gearbox.
