Dacia updates Duster SUV in UK, including Autogas option

Dacia has enhanced and updated its Duster SUV model. This latest version features refreshed design elements, up-to-date features, and technology all while continuing to offer the same robustness, comfort, and value-for-money which it is famed for. The New Duster’s TCe 100 Bi-Fuel version has been also updated as the capacity of the LPG tank has been increased by 50%, or 49.8 litres. The TCe 100 Euro 6D Full engine is combined with a six-speed manual gearbox.

“The New Dacia Duster is the perfect example of delivering the best-value-for-money without compromising on quality. It is a sporty, all-terrain vehicle which continues to make the SUV accessible for consumers. It now comes with even more advanced technology, features, style, enhanced driving pleasure and efficiency,” commented Luke Broad, Head of Sales, Dacia UK.

Dacia is the only manufacturer to offer the bi-fuel (petrol-Autogas) option across its entire range of internal combustion engine models. Factory fitting of this proven technology to the TCe 100 bi-fuel engine is a guarantee of safety and reliability. The length of the manufacturer’s warranty, the service intervals, and boot capacity are identical to the petrol-only version. The LPG tank is fitted beneath the floor of the boot, in place of the spare wheel.

When running on Autogas, the New Duster bi-fuel emits on average 9.5% less CO2 than an equivalent petrol engine. In addition, it offers a range of 767 miles thanks to its two tanks, with a combined supply of almost 100 litres. This is made up of 50 litres of petrol and 62 litre LPG tank (50 litre filling capacity). The useful supply of LPG has increased by 16.2 litres compared with the previous generation of the Duster LPG, increasing the range by more than 155 miles.

Behind the wheel, the switch between fuels is immediate and imperceptible. The new petrol-LPG switch, which is more ergonomic and better integrated, can be operated manually by the driver at any time. The switch to petrol occurs automatically if the LPG tank is empty. The 3.5-inch TFT onboard computer screen informs the driver of the fuel level in the two tanks. With Dacia, LPG combines ease of use, driving pleasure and reduced CO2 emissions, with a greater range.
