The new SUV model will be larger and more spacious than the car it replaces, while its exterior gets an evolved design.
In order to retain its moniker as one of the cheapest cars on sale, the base model Duster will have plastic bumpers and wheel arch surrounds. Higher-spec models will be available with painted trim.
Autocar’s sources have dismissed rumours that the new car will be available with a seven-seat option.
Like the current car, the next Duster will share parts with other cars from Dacia's parent company Renault-Nissan. It will likely be based on a developed version of the current car’s structure, and retain a range of four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines.
The next Duster looks on course to arrive in summer 2018, with entry-level prices remaining below the £10,000 mark. The current Duster costs from £9495.
