Dacia Duster Commercial bags best 4X4 Van
The Dacia Duster Commercial 4×4 has been named ‘Best 4×4 Van’ for the second consecutive year at the What Van? Awards.
Based on the popular Dacia Duster compact SUV, and launched at the Commercial Vehicle Show 2015, the Duster Commercial 4×4 was praised by judges for its off-road capability, driving style and value for money. The Duster Commercial offers the perfect package for many tradesmen – based on the passenger car version of the vehicle yet with a 1,604-litre maximum load capacity and cost benefits thanks to its classification as an LCV.
James Dallas, of What Van?, said: “The versatile Dacia Duster Commercial, which retains the award from last year, is an excellent value for money proposition for operators who need to tackle tricky conditions such as icy or muddy tracks.”
Louise O’Sullivan, of Dacia UK, said: “It’s great to see the Duster Commercial 4×4 again holding its own in this category. The Duster Commercial 4×4 applies the Dacia philosophy to LCVs – providing a no-nonsense solution to businesses looking for an affordable and reliable vehicle that’s also capable of being rugged and heading off-road when needed.”
The Dacia Duster Commercial 4×4 has a flat load area in lieu of rear seats and a payload of 550kg. Available in two different trim levels – Ambiance and Lauréate – the Duster Commercial 4×4 receives Bluetooth connectivity, electric front windows and a heated rear screen even on entry level versions. The Lauréate version adds features such as cruise control, leather steering wheel, alloy wheels, air conditioning and electric heated door mirrors.
