[Video] Spied – 2018 Dacia Duster caught on the road image

The second-generation Dacia Duster subcompact SUV is coming out of the shadows and has been captured in motion for the first time – of course wearing a heavy mantle of camouflage.

The affordable and popular crossover is seen here somewhere in Spain – most likely undergoing hot weather testing, and while the thick camouflage hides the design details, we can already tell the designers have opted for the industry’s new trend, coming up with an evolution rather than a revolution in terms of styling. The overall, rugged look is being kept intact, but with stylistic changes to the hood, headlights and bumpers, as far as we can tell. It’s also going to feature built-in turn signals into the side mirrors as previously seen on other Dacia models.

With the Duster being one of the most affordable SUVs on the market, we have major doubts about rumors of the model adopting the CMF-B platform of the Renault Nissan Alliance, which also underpins the Renault Kadjar and Nissan X-Trail. More likely, the existing hardware will see a continuation of the upgrades that are being introduced from model year to new model year even with this first-generation model. There’s also a report that states the model will be revealed online on June 22 – so all answers might be given then.
