Minor cosmetic tweaks

Dacia has revealed the facelifted Duster ahead of the SUV's public debut scheduled for next month at IAA in Frankfurt.

The revised Romanian off-roader adopts a modified front fascia encompassing a new grille which is now being adorned by two chrome strips. There's also a reworked air intake and more attractive headlights with built-in LED daytime running lights. Other tweaks include the new roof bars with slatted supports, as well as 16-inch Dark Metal rims with mud & snow tires.

The back of the 2014 Dacia Duster facelift has received some chrome inserts, specifically in the tailpipe and the redesigned badging. While the Duster-based Nissan Terrano has larger taillights, Dacia decided to use pretty much the same configuration as seen on the pre-facelifted model.

New Dacia Duster, presented at the forthcoming Frankfurt Motor Show, has been upgraded for European left hand drive markets. Retaining the design features largely responsible for its success, the new model sports more emphatic 4x4 design cues.

Emphatic 4x4 styling

The front end has been upgraded, with a redesigned grille, adorned by two chrome-plated strips and housing a new air intake and new double-optic headlights with daytime running lights. 

The upgrades underscore the car’s on-road stance and robust, “go-anywhere” character.

“We built on the appeal of the original model and its proportions. Identity components such as the grille have been modernised. We have also strengthened the 4x4 cues of the vehicle, while keeping all its useful features. New Duster gets an even stronger character while retaining its initial DNA.”

David Durand, Head of Styling for the Entry range.

New roof bars with slatted supports underline the car’s SUV character, while new 16-inch “Dark Metal” alloy wheels and Mud and Snow tyres revitalise the profile of New Dacia Duster.

At the back, new lights echo the styling cues of the front end, notably though the use of chrome. A chrome-plated tail pipe and new badging round out the exterior styling changes and further boost the car’s personality.

those taillights are ridiculously small for a car this size. let's see some interior shots, Dacias kind suck when it comes to interiors. otherwise, the car looks good, looking forward to see some price tags :D
