Dacia has wrapped up a new special edition of the Duster SUV. Called Extreme SE, the new version is based on the premium range Dacia Duster Prestige model but with unique design cues, interior trim and generous help of standard accessories. Orders open in April, with prices starting at £17,495.
The Extreme SE Edition brings many tweaks to the Duster’s rugged, ergonomic design. Dacia has fitted 17-inch alloys in gloss black, and features a Quartz Gray finish for the roof rails, door mirrors and front grille. Orange accents also pick out the door mirrors and grille details, while the bodywork itself is painted in the new Urban Gray paint (although seven other colors are available). The ‘Duster’ lettering on the back is also black and chrome.
The theme continues inside. There are orange flashes on the satin chrome plated air vents that surround it. The Extreme SE has a glossy black insert on the door cards and a charcoal gray trim on the center console. Orange stitching on the seats completes the sophisticated interior.
Based on Prestige trim, the Extreme SE comes standard with keyless, automatic air conditioning and a multi-view camera. Heated seats, blind spot warning and an audio windscreen are also included, along with Dacia’s Media Nav infotainment system. This is based on an 8-inch touchscreen that features wireless smartphone mirroring and built-in satellite navigation.
Under the bonnet, there’s a choice of petrol and diesel engines, starting with a 90hp 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol unit priced at £17,495. The Dacia’s turbocharged biofuel engine, which can run on petrol as well as LPG, is also offered alongside a regular petrol engine producing 128bhp. Next is the most powerful petrol model, the 148hp unit only available with a dual-clutch automatic for £20,845.
The only diesel engine on offer is a 113-horsepower four-cylinder. So fitted, the car costs £21,645 and is the only model with all-wheel drive. The Duster Extreme SE will go on sale in April 2022 and shipping in May.
