Duster fever “sweeps” across the nation
Dacia’s only been on the scene in Western Europe for a few years, but
its already taken the market by storm. Something plenty of
holidaymakers will no doubt testify to, having seen hordes of
privately-owned Dusters and Sanderos zipping around everywhere from the
chic streets of Paris and Berlin, to the Med.
After an anxious wait, Renault’s “smart buy brand” is now looking to
shake up the UK car market. In a big way. How’s it going to do it?
Simple. By offering Duster, a compact SUV, priced from £8,995, for less
than many entry-level superminis. Even its higher end diesel-engined
versions with 4x4 ability, are thousands of pounds cheaper than other
all-wheel-drive alternatives. As if that’s not enough to send its rivals
running for the hills, to ram home its stunning affordability, its just
announced prices for its sister model, the all-new Sandero. Not to be
outshone by its bigger sibling, this smart-looking five-door supermini
sports an equally jaw-dropping price tag. From £5,995, it’s the most
affordable new car on sale in the UK. Bar none.
It’s safe to say that Duster fever is already sweeping the nation. In little more than 100 days since pre-orders opened via www.dacia.co.uk
and its 135 UK Dacia Retailers, Europe’s fastest-growing automotive brand has already bagged 1,000 pre-orders
