While it's described as 'all-new', this Duster is in fact based on the same platform as the model it replaces. It also means we get to use our favourite phrase of 'evolution not revolution' when describing the styling. Which is marginally better than Dacia's description of 'robust'.

It will use the same engines as the old Duster, albeit tweaked slightly for better economy. That means a 1.6 SCe petrol along with the newer turbocharged 1.2 TCe, which has really impressed us.

The 1.5 dCi will be the sole diesel option and the most economical too. Owners of the current model are seeing 44mpg plus according to Real MPG. As before there will be front-wheel drive and 4x4 versions.

There are no pictures of the redesigned interior yet but Dacia is promising a quality-feel and new equipment too. So expect more soft-touch materials, better switches and overall a less budget feel. A new infotainment touchscreen system is also in the offing.

A new paint colour, Atacama Orange, will be available along with LED daytime running lights on higher specification models.
