Despite rumours of a Duster facelift, Dacia only unveiled a limited edition of its SUV in Geneva, called the Duster Aventure.
Building on the rugged looks of the SUV, the Duster Aventure is more off-road oriented than the standard model.
Dacia Duster Aventure has several features that show the car means business: roof bar-mounted spot lamps, front and rear skidplates, black masks for rear lamp units, red arrows marking tow ring and jack locations, and side protection with Duster markings. Special decals also announce the vehicle’s adventurous intent, evoking the spirit of the motor sport events in which Duster has excelled.
Based on the Ambiance version, the Duster Aventure limited edition is available in a choice of two colours: Glacier White and Pearl Black. Further finishing touches include a special radiator grille with gloss black surround, wing mirror covers, 16” wheels, and tinted windows for protection against UV, breakage, glare and heat.
On the inside, Dacia offers a special upholstery featuring white overstitching, the compass motif and the Duster signature. The gloss black centre console mirrors the exterior design details, while the air vent surrounds, steering wheel ring and door handles are in contrasting white.
Available in a 4×4 as well as 4×2 version, the Duster Aventure also features a Garmin satnav system semi-integrated in the dashboard. The onboard GPS unit boasts a robust, waterproof design, and runs a 45-country Europe map system with free lifetime updates, plus a topographic map.
This new limited edition marks phase two of the partnership launched with Garmin in 2012, following on from the Garmin limited edition unveiled at the Paris Motor Show.
