The third generation Dacia Duster will probably arrive next year. What could she look like?
The answer to this question is offered by the graphics of the motoring website Bikes, which comes with its own design as a successor to the popular SUV. Of course, his vision is strongly inspired by the Bigster concept, presented at the beginning of 2021. In addition, however, it includes elements that have already managed to reveal photos of camouflaged prototypes captured during testing.
The graphic artist imagines the new generation of Duster with similar proportions to the current version, the rising bottom line of the windows is also typical for the Romanian SUV. Otherwise, we can consider the design as new. The new front mask with connected headlights is impressive, the front bumper is distinctive. The appearance of the fenders is certainly worth mentioning, however, we see the treatment of the rear parts as the most controversial, with lights reminiscent of the “laying down” letter Y.
Our colleague and graphic artist Honza Lušovský once also started thinking about the third generation Dacia Duster, you can see his design in the gallery and compare it with the new “competitive” vision.
Even though the premiere of the car is still a few months away, we already know that the new Duster will use the CMF-B platform, known from the Sandero, Logan and Jogger models.
The basis of the range of engines will probably be a turbocharged three-cylinder petrol 1.2 TCe supplemented with 48V mild-hybrid technology. This aggregate is to be available in two performance variants and also in an LPG version. In addition, it will offer a choice between manual and automatic transmission, and there is also talk of an all-wheel drive version. The hybrid Duster E-Tech will also arrive. However, diesel units will be missing, as Dacia is completely saying goodbye to diesel engines.
The third generation Dacia Duster should arrive next year. And in 2025, its larger relative will arrive, a seven-seater SUV, for which the name Bigster is used for now. However, it has not yet been confirmed whether the production car will also carry this label.
