The Auto Trader expert verdict:
Like all Dacias, the Duster’s main selling point is its incredible affordability, but it also throws attractive styling and a roomy cabin into the mix as well. You do have to make a few sacrifices in quality, technology and dynamic polish to get that affordability, but the sacrifices aren’t as severe as they were with the previous Duster, and most are worth making. The one exception is the compromise you have to make on safety, with limited kit and a poor Euro NCAP safety rating, so think carefully before selecting one as your family car.
Reasons to buy:
- Low price makes it amazing value
- Looks the part
- Roomy cabin and decent boot
