Dacia Duster Small SUV Photographed Inside and Out in Public

The new economy 4x4 model from Dacia, the Duster, has been photographed during what appears to be some kind of dealer presentation in its home market in Romania. While the Renault Group published a few exterior shots of the Duster back in December, this is the first time we get to see how the small SUV's interior looks like.

As you can see for yourselves in the gallery after the jump, the Duster's dashboard bears a strong resemblance to the Nissan Qashqai (albeit with previous generation Renault switchgear).

The five-seater model, which makes uses of the same platform found on the Dacia Logan, measures 4.31 metres in length and 1.82 metres in width.

When it goes on sale in Europe this Spring, buyers will be able to choose from three engine options, a 1.6-liter petrol engine in 110hp and 85hp guises, or a 105hp dCi diesel powerplant, all available with two-wheel or four-wheel drive.

The four-wheel drive system that is borrowed from Nissan has three different driving modes - Auto, which splits front/rear torque according to grip; Lock, whereby 50 per cent of torque is consistently fed through the rear axle and 4x2 where the transmission is locked into two-wheel drive.
