UK: Dacia Duster to cost under GBP10k image

The Romanian based automaker Dacia has recently announced that the Duster SUV will be priced at less than 10,000 GBP in the United Kingdom, when the model will be launched in early 2013.

After the Dacia Duster has been highlighted with its Prestige Limited Edition, which has been launched not too long ago, the Romanian low-cost SUV is once again placed into the spotlights, this time with the company announcing its official starting price in the United Kingdom. Rumors saying that the Dacia Duster will be launched in the United Kingdom in late 2012 have just been “demolished” by the Renault budget brand, which is letting us know that the SUV will cost less than 10,000 GBP once the model will hit the UK, in right-hand drive, in early 2013.

Just like in its local auto market, the Dacia Duster will be available, in the UK, with the same choice of front or all-wheel drive, along with the 1.6 liter 16 valve petrol engine, with its 110 horsepower sent to the front wheels in the entry-level version, along with the 1.5 liter dCi diesel unit, which is coming in two variants, with 85 HP and 105 HP. The Duster is emitting just 140 g of CO2 every km in the two-wheel drive version, while for the all-wheel drive system, the model is “adding” 10 more grams / km. The Dacia Duster is competing against models like the Skoda Yeti or the Hyundai Tucson.
