Although the arrival of the new generation Dacia Duster on the market is still a matter of a few weeks, it has already appeared on the website for pre-order in Romania, at a price in conversion from 631 thousand crowns. So far, only one engine is available with front or all-wheel drive. The report was published on Auto.cz.
The hot new product of the Dacia car company, the Duster model of the third generation, is not yet on sale. Nevertheless, the first two prices of the novelty appeared on the official website of the car manufacturer in Romania, with the TCe 130 engine, i.e. with the new petrol 1200 with an output of 96 kW (130 hp).
The version with front-wheel drive is listed with a price of 25,350 euros, i.e. less than 631 thousand crowns. The version with 4×4 drive costs 27,550 euros, i.e. less than 686,000 crowns. Both variants can be pre-ordered for a reservation fee of 100 euros. As in the case of other, foreign car companies, Dacia’s website also displays prices in euros, although in Romania they are paid in lei.
The prices seem high, but they certainly cannot be considered basic. The cars are relatively well equipped, e.g. they have a heated windshield, 360° parking camera, built-in navigation with Internet connection, Arkamys 3D audio, wireless smartphone mirroring, cruise control with speed limiter, automatic air conditioning or perhaps 18″ alloy wheels.
Dacia Duster changes over time • Dacia
The current duster is sold in Romania from 17,900 euros (approx. 445,000 crowns) for the basic equipment with LPG drive, in our country the same version starts at 425,000 crowns. The top-of-the-line Extreme version, which is more comparable to the pre-order version of the new Duster, starts at 596,000 crowns in the Czech Republic, and 24,900 euros (just under 620,000 crowns) in Romania.
It can therefore be expected that the top duster of the new generation will cost from around 600,000 crowns, or from 650,000 crowns with a 4×4 drive. How the hybrid will fare is, of course, still a question. We already know about the diesel drive that it will not be available in the new generation.
