Dacia Duster 2018 Spied Photos, Rumor, Specs, Release Date and Prices – The second generation of the Duster is facing development tests in view of the marketing expected in December 2017.
Test with camouflage among the first SUVs of dimensions contained to arrive in the price lists in the now distant 2010, the 2018 Dacia Duster has been a good success due to the pricing and the overall impression of solidity. These characteristics will not be less with the debut of the second generation that is performing in this period the traditional road tests. As we see from the photos of AutoExpress, the prototypes still adopt rather heavy camouflages under which a bodywork is visible from the proportions analogous to the current model, compared to which the new edition should not stray too much even at the aesthetic level.
2018 Dacia Duster Redesign and Changes
Only 5 seats the new Dacia Duster 2018 will then appear as an evolution of the car today, accomplice the choice to keep the bumpers and profiles on the wheel plastic bows. The length should increase by a few centimeters and encourage internal habitability, although it should not be available in 7-seater version. This choice would have required too important changes to the platform which, according to the rumors, should be an evolution of today’s. In the range of the new Dacia Duster 2018 should not miss the variants with integral traction and with the automatic transmission EDC, in addition to engines with power from about 90 hp to 130 HP: will be the gasoline 1.2 and 1.6 and the diesel 1.5. The presentation of the car is expected at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, while the beginning of sales is scheduled for December 2017 as a 2018 model.
I think it will be more a makeover than a new car… Is it a successful car yet today because it totally destructures it? There will be some aesthetic refinement, and interior renovations, little else. IMHO I never liked it much, it is more practical than beautiful of course.
It seems made on the same base, changed bonnet, bumper, maybe the tailgate. The doors are very similar but the fenders appear thinner. It is in fact that these similarities not to distort it give a proportional result to the continuation of a non-improvement model in concert with the word “savings”. IMHO, if this new Dacia had to approach even little to the standard quality levels already found in Renault…. a priori let it lose.
