Dacia economic brand unveiled Facelift Duster. As is customary among European automakers, the volume of changes in this version is small and has undergone an evolutionary process. The formation of LED daytime running lights as well as the use of LEDs for guides and license plates are some of the changes that will be seen in Duster 2022.
The 16 and 17 rings used in Duster 2022 are new. Dacia says that for better aerodynamics and lower fuel consumption, these rims have been tested in wind tunnels, and with their help, as well as the rear spoiler, the pollution of the facelift duster has been reduced by 5.8 grams. The addition of chrome trim to the windshield is another notable change in the exterior.
Inside the cabin, the Duster Facelift dashboard now houses an 8-inch touchscreen display. Interestingly, this display, or in other words, the Duster Infotainment system, supports Android Otto and CarPlay, and is also equipped with a router. In dual differential models, this display provides the driver with useful information such as angle, height, compass and similar data.
Wider under-elbows with a displacement of 70 mm and a capacity of 1.1 liters, changing the seat covers and installing new backrests are other notable things inside the cabin of Dacia Duster 2022. These backs are also borrowed from the new Logan and Sandro, or more precisely from the Renault Clio.
In the technical part, the addition of a six-speed automatic dual-clutch gearbox can be considered the most significant change. This gearbox can only be selected with the front differential model equipped with a 150 hp engine. If one is looking to order a two-axle transmission, a six-speed manual transmission will be the only option. This gearbox is available for the front differential version with TCe 90 and TCe 130 engines.
Under the hood of the diesel version of Duster 2022, the same dCi 115 engine works. The engine is mated to a six-speed gearbox and has all-wheel drive as an option.
The Dacia Duster 2022 will also be available in a dual-burner version. This version carries the ECO-G 100 code and has a 50 liter tank for LPG instead of spare. According to the company, in this version, the volume of the cargo area has not changed and is the same as the gasoline version. Longer range and reduced CO2 emissions by 9.5% compared to the petrol model are dual advantages. Interestingly, in terms of warranty and periodic services, this version is no different from the gasoline model.
As promised by Dacia, the Duster 2022 will go on sale in Europe in September. The car will be sold with the company’s current logo by mid-next year, but after that the new logo will be installed on all Dacia products. It is worth mentioning that Duster is not the only high chassis made by Dacia, because the electric spring model will enter the market by the end of the year, and the Crossover Bigster will join Dacia’s tall group in the coming years.
