6 July 2009

This is the new Dacia crossover, photographed inside a facility in Romania.

The car is likely to be called either the Dacia Duster or Dacia Seppe when it goes on sale next year. early reports suggest it will be unveiled at the 2010 Geneva motor show.

The car uses the Dacia Logan platform and four-wheel drive technology from the Nissan X-Trail.

However, the car is extremely unlikely to be sold in the UK, with the current Euro exchange rate making it uneconomic to set up a new brand with small profit margins.

"Bringing Dacia to the UK is something that is constantly looked, but at the moment the time isn't right," said a spokesman.
