You Can Now Buy A Dacia Duster With A 147HP Turbo Engine In The UK

Dacia announced pricing and range details of the new Duster TCe 130 and TCe 150 petrol models for the UK market. The latter is the most powerful engine ever to be used in a Dacia.

The engine in question is the new turbocharged 1.3-liter four-cylinder unit developed by Renault-Nissan and Daimler, featuring a gasoline particulate filter and new innovations such as “Bore Spray Coating”, which is applied on the inside of the cylinder for better performance and engine response.

The TCe 130 version produces 128hp (130PS) and 177lb-ft (240Nm) of torque and is paired to a six-speed manual gearbox, enabling the Dacia Duster to a 0-62mph (100km/h) in 11.1 seconds. CO2 emissions are rated at 137g/km while fuel economy is rated at a combined 47 mpg UK combined per the latest WLTP standards.

The more powerful TCe 150 produces 147hp (150PS) and 184lb-ft (250Nm) of torque, dropping the 0-62mph time to 10.4 seconds. CO2 emissions remain the same with the TCe 130 model, at 137g/km, as does the combined fuel economy, at 47mpg UK.

Customers in the UK will be initially able to buy the new petrol versions of the Dacia Duster in front-drive configuration, with an all-wheel drive option to become available from mid-2019.

The new Dacia Duster TCe 130 is available in two trim levels – Comfort and Prestige. Base Comfort models come equipped with features such as 16-inch alloy wheels, rear parking camera and sensors and a seven-inch infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

The range-topping TCe 150 is available only in the Prestige trim level, featuring 17-inch alloy wheels, multi-view camera, blind spot warning, climate control and keyless entry.

Prices for the new Dacia Duster TCe 130 start from £14,395, while the TCe 150 is priced from £16,295. The first customer deliveries are expected to start in the UK from March.

    The Duster will fall apart with so much power

    Thrown together in Romania using old Renault parts? No thanks.

      British-built vehicles are also well known for their quality, right ?
      By the way, how many cars available on the market are built in Eastern Europe, Turkey or North Africa ? It doesn’t bother you still.

      • ➡️ProtectOurHeritage⬅️

        I’ve never had reliability issues with British-built cars (MG, Rover, Jaguar, Land Rover, etc), but know dozens of people that have had problems with cars from Renault.

        Dacia, Renault, Fiat, Citroen, Peugeot and Ford build cars and vans in Turkey or North Africa and it bothers me greatly. It should anger all Europeans who value a manufacturing-based economy.

      The engine lineup (the new petrols as well as the Diesel) is shared with the new Mercedes A-Class, just for info.

  • This is actually disappointing. My 2018 Duster with the TCe 125 petrol engine does 0-100km/h in 10.4 seconds already. Why this regression?
