2015 Dacia Duster gets styling and trim upgrades at no extra cost

Article by Christian Andrei, on September 23, 2014

The 2015 Dacia Duster will feature styling and trim upgrades – all for a zero increase in its “shockingly affordable” pricing. It is still available two- and four-wheel-drive models derived from three trim levels. The base Access trim is powered by a 105 hp 1.6-litre 16-valve petrol engine, while the mid-range Ambiance and top-grade Lauréate trims are powered by a 107 hp 1.5-litre dCi 110 turbodiesel power unit.

The power rating on the dCi goes up to 109 hp on 4x4 versions. The two-wheel drive Access version is available at a starting price of less than £9,500 while the two-wheel-drive variant can be availed at just below £11,500. The 2015 Dacia Duster now features a more stylish chrome front grille -- two layers of four small intakes surrounding the Dacia logo.

All trim levels feature ‘Duster’ branded roof bars, with the Lauréate version coming in chrome. The Lauréate version also features Tyrol 16-inch alloy wheels, body-colored door handles and dark metal door mirror casings. The 2015 Duster can be still availed in Glacier White on the Ambiance and Lauréate versions, with new optional colors now being offered -- Mercury, Khaki, Pearl Black, Slate Grey and Cinnamon.

Access models feature 16-inch Eiger steel wheels, remote locking, an engine immobiliser, electric front windows and anti-lock brakes with Emergency Brake Assist. The Access models likewise feature Electronic Stability Control and Traction Control, a Tire Pressure Monitor, four airbags, an ECO driving mode and gearshift indicator and a four-speed heating and ventilation system.

Coming as standard for the Access models are body-colored bumpers, black door handles and Duster-branded roof bars and bumpers. Their 4x4 version features a center differential lock with 2WD, Auto and Lock modes.

The Ambiance models have all the equipment the Access models have with the addition of Matterhorn 16-inch steel wheels, satin chrome door handles, a chrome gearlever insert and instrument surrounds, a radio/CD player with AUX and USB sockets and Bluetooth, front foglights, a height-adjustable driver’s seat and a 60:40 split rear seat.

The Lauréate models, meanwhile, boasts of 16-inch Tyrol alloys, manual air conditioning, electric mirrors and rear windows as wellas cruise control with a speed limiter, a seven-function trip computer. They also feature a glovebox light, a passenger vanity mirror and body colored door handles, satin chrome Duster-branded roof bars, scuff plates and side sills.
