Currently reading: Dacia Duster facelift revealed at Goodwood
A new facelifted model of the budget crossover has made its debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed

The facelifted Dacia Duster has made its debut at Goodwood Festival of Speed, with a variety of revisions over the outgoing model.

In facelifted form, the Duster has been subject to exterior styling tweaks, with more geometric headlight clusters and subtle tweaks to the front end.

Under the bonnet, a punchier, turbocharged petrol engine, a 1.2 TCe unit with 123bhp is new to the Duster range, managing 46.3mpg in two-wheel drive, and 44.1mpg in all-wheel drive format. CO2 emissions for the 1.2 TCe 125 are a claimed 138g/km.

A new Prestige spec has also been added to the Duster line-up, sitting above the current Laureate trim, and topping the range at £16,495 for the dCi 110 with all-wheel drive. The two-wheel drive version of this car is on display at Goodwood. 

Prestige trim adds 16in diamond-cut alloys, a touchscreen infotainment system with sat-nav and a reversing camera to the Lauréate spec, and is priced at a £900 premium over the previously range-topping Lauréate trim level.

New upholstery has been added from bottom-spec upwards, and a DAB radio has also been added to the standard kit on offer. Dark carbon finish dashboard trim and satin chrome centre console and steering wheel trim have also been added.

The Duster’s options list has been bolstered with new 16in diamond-cut alloys, rear parking sensors and a reversing camera and part-leather upholstery available as optional extras. A new shade of metallic green paint has been added too.

The facelifted Duster now starts at £9495 for the entry-level Access trim. Dacia is already taking orders for the facelifted model, with first customer deliveries expected to start in July. Dacia has also brought other models from its range to display and demonstrate at Goodwood, including the Sandero, Sandero Stepway and Logan MCV.

Sorry, I said second generation but I remember there being Dacia Dusters in the world in the eighties. Next generation then.

The Duster appears to have a gas strut for the bonnet. One up on most rivals. Looking forward to the second generation of this car.

Goodwood, Why?

I thought part of Dacia's no nonsense budget brand image would have to not have gone to places like Goodwood and the expenditure that brings. I know a lot of manufacturers are now using the FOS as the British Motorshow but this doesn't seem to fit their brand placement.
