With an MSRP of £17,395 ($22,305/€19,656), the Comfort grade adds more equipment, including rear parking sensors, reversing camera, heated and electrically adjustable side mirrors, and 16-inch ‘Cyclade’ alloy wheels.

Finally, the Duster Prestige Blue dCi 4×4 can be had from £18,695 ($23,972/€21,125), and comes with standard 17-inch ‘Diamond-cut’ alloy wheels, multi-view camera, Blind Spot Warning, keyless entry and climate control.

Regardless of the chosen variant, all four-wheel drive Dacia Duster models have a standard 4×4 monitor that shows the car’s angle in real-time, and incorporates a compass. Hill Descent Control and Hill Start Assist, along with approach and departure angles of 30 and 33 degrees, respectively, and a 210 mm (8.3 in) ground clearance improve the vehicle’s off-road capability.
