The Renault Group's Dacia brand continues its pre-launch activities in Britain with the announcement of pre-ordering for the Duster compact SUV. The company said that as soon as it announces pricing and specifications for the Duster SUV on June 28, it will begin accepting pre-orders online with a £100 deposit.
The Romanian budget brand said the Duster's range will start from less than £10,000 (€12,150 or US$16,000) for the front-wheel drive models, while 4x4 versions available from less than £12,500 (€15,150 or US$19,900).
The right-hand drive variant of Dacia’s SUV will be built at the new Renault-Nissan Alliance factory in India, with the first model to begin arriving in UK dealerships in January of 2013.
Dacia has not yet confirmed the UK engine range but in Europe, the Duster is available with a choice of three powerplants for both the 4x2 and 4x4 versions including a 110hp 1.6-liter petrol unit and a 1.6-liter turbo diesel with 85HP or 110HP.
Aside from the Duster, Dacia will also offer the Sandero supermini in the UK with prices to start from less than £7,000.
