Full Dacia Duster price list revealed
The price, which undercuts many of the UK's best-selling superminis and small cars, has been labelled as 'shockingly affordable' by the Renault-owned manufacturer.
A starting price of £8,995 applies only to the two-wheel drive Duster but a four-wheel drive version will cost from £10,995.
Orders are now open for the five-seat off-roader and yesterday Perrys Motors actually took its first order after introducing a display model to the Perrys Renault of Aylesbury dealership.
Deliveries of the new Dacia Duster will take place from January 2013 and will be available in three different trim levels.
The entry-level model, named Access, comes with electric front windows, four airbags, five seats, ABS and Emergency Brake Assist.
Mid-range Dacia Duster 'Ambiance' models add Bluetooth, radio/CD, front fog lights, 60:40 folding seats and USB connectivity. Ambience model prices start from £11,495 and it is expected to be the most popular option.
At the top of the range the Laureate includes alloy wheels, air conditioning, electric rear windows, leather steering wheel and chrome roof bars and highlights. The more premium-feeling Laureate trim starts from £12,995.
The 1.6-litre 105hp petrol engine is available in both two- and four-wheel drive on the entry-level Access trim. The other engine choice, a 1.5-litre 100hp diesel, is available in both two- and four-wheel drive in Ambiance or Laureate trims with prices ranging from £11,495.
Other options include the choice of four metallic paint finishes including silver, grey and two shades of blue for an extra £470.
Traction control and Electronic Stability Control (ESC) will be offered as an option and four option packs will also be available.
These include Adventurer for £445, which includes protective mouldings, Styling adding daytime running lights and chrome side and front bars and exhaust tailpipe.
Protection option packs include an alarm, rear parking sensors and mudguards for an extra £575 and Touring includes a towbar and transversal roof bars.
The new Dacia Duster is available to order now from Perrys Renault of Aylesbury.
