DUSTER WINS VALUE CAR OF THE YEAR
The All-New Dacia Duster has won Value Car of the Year at the first ever Sun Motor Awards. Proving the popularity of the model,
the Duster was voted for not just by a panel of journalists but also by the public in an online vote and praised for its build quality, off-road capabilities and affordability.
Nick Francis, Motoring Editor for The Sun said: “We did the maths — you can have a Dacia Duster for the same price as your daily coffee.
The fact Sun readers can own a new family car for less than £10,000 in today’s world is downright amazing. Using well proven Renault parts, build quality is high, and its spec-sheet far exceeds its price tag.
Surprisingly good off road, too. Without doubt the best car ten grand can buy"

DUSTER WINS GROUP TEST
DUSTER BEATS MG GS
"The Duster rides better, feeling softer and more absorbent over all surfaces... it is smoother around town" reports WhatCar?
"The Duster's over-the-rear shoulder view is clearer... it also comes with rear-view camera and rear parking sensors. The GS has neither".
"It has more useful storage compartments, bigger door pockets and... a bigger boot...which is a far more practical size".
"When you're shopping for a bargain, the price is crucial- and here the Duster is hard to beat... it is significantly cheaper to buy and run - incredible value".
LOGAN MCV STEPWAY REVIEW
"This is nothing short of bonkers" reports Diesel Car, "I've just taken delivery of a new spacious estate car that costs £13,695".
"Its got acres of space and everything you'd expect a modern family car to have, yet it costs just a grand more than the 1.3 litre Toyota Corolla from 22 years ago".
"It's this comparison that throw the Dacia's value into sharp relief... its astonishing value for money".
