In view of its official unveiling at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show (10-22 September), Dacia has released the first official images and details of the revamped Dacia Duster. The popular SUV of the Renault-owned Romenian brand has been upgraded for European left hand drive markets but retains those design features that are largely responsible for its success.
The front end has been upgraded with a redesigned grille, adorned by two chrome-plated strips and housing a reworked air intake and new double-optic headlights, with integrated DRL (daytime running lights). New roof bars with slatted supports underline the car’s SUV character, while a new set of 16-inch “Dark Metal” alloy wheels and Mud and Snow tyres revitalise its unmistakable profile.
At the rear we have new taillights that use some styling cues of the front end, most notably the use of chrome. A chrome-plated tail pipe and new badging round out the exterior styling changes of the model adding up to its own personality. Dacia didn’t reveal neither the price nor the availability of the new Duster, but we would expect it to hit the showrooms at some point next year. We will keep you posted.
