2010 Dacia Duster Laureate 1.5 dCi 110 hp


Comfortable, low maintenance 4x4 at a decent price


Showroom car. Too early for issues.

General Comments:

I went to the local Dacia dealer and took a look at the new Dacia Duster.

The car looks well put together, although there are some places were the economy is visible. The folded backseats do not create a plain surface for cargo for example, and the boot finish is very basic.

The attack and departure angles are very good for a car of this size.

The noise level of the engine is very low for a diesel, and the 6 gear gearbox is very helpful.

The interior is a little bit harsh with tough plastics, but it suits well the general rugged look of the car.

I didn't have the chance to test the vehicle in some serious off road conditions, but the 4x4 system (Nissan origin) looks pretty capable.

The vehicle seems perfect for people who live in a region with bad roads, and need a cheap 4x4 with low maintenance.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Good you are happy with it. You can't judge now with only 100km.

Happy for you brother.

Although it's economic, the Duster is a really well built car, especially the Nissan add ons.

Please update your review later when the car covers long distances.
