New Dacia Duster Due Next Year, Range Revamp In September

While the Logan and Sandero are in their second generations, Dacia’s SUV remains practically the same, except for a few tweaks made with the facelift in 2013.

However, things are about to change in the Romanian manufacturer’s lineup and in between the introduction of the facelifted Logan and Sandero, scheduled for this fall, a second-generation of the Duster is expected in 2017, as Romanian publication ZF claims quoting the Renault Group’s design chief, Laurens van den Acker.

In September, in Paris, we will have the facelifted Sandero and Logan. It’s a mid-life restyling. For a big leap, we are waiting for the new Duster. Dacia, however, doesn’t have a large enough lineup to come up with something new every year“, said the firm’s official.

Details on how exactly the Romanian SUV will change, compared to the current version, are unknown, but we should see a different exterior design, following the path of the facelifted Logan and Sandero, along with a new cabin. The Easy-R automatic transmission, presented last year and brought to the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, where it was connected to the 1.5-liter dCi diesel engine for the first time, will probably be offered on the second generation of the Duster too.
