2022 Dacia Duster facelift breaks cover with revised looks, cleaner engine
Dacia has officially introduced the 2022 Duster model sold in some countries under the Renault brand. Aside from Sandero-like styling, it boasts a revised range of features.
Novelty on the outside includes a different radiator grille, headlights with Y-shaped DRLs inside, LED-based low beams and – for the first time on record – LED turn blinkers. Wind-tunnel-tested wheels and rear spoiler helped reduce emissions produced by the AWD model by 5.8 grams per kilometer.
Inside, the headrests have been reshaped and the seats re-trimmed. Driver’s seat’s armrest can now be shifted 70 mm to reveal a lockable storage compartment, and its rear end houses two USB slots for the second-row occupants to use.
Customers may choose from three available infotainment designs. In addition to the entry-spec Dacia Plug & Music, there are now two premium options called Media Display and Media Nav. Both come with eight-inch touchscreen displays, Android Auto/Apple CarPlay support and WiFi connectivity (top trim only).
Tech features include blind zone monitoring, ultrasonic parking sensors, and all-around cameras. AWD versions may be additionally fitted with a feature called 4x4 Monitor, which displays real-time off-road performance data.
