Design, Practicality and Boot Space

The design of the new Dacia Duster Commercial retains the rugged and robust appeal of its SUV counterpart. It features a bold and muscular exterior characterized by its wide wheel arches, high ground clearance, and a distinctive front grille. The overall aesthetics exude a sense of strength and durability, which aligns perfectly with its commercial utility purpose. While the design may not be groundbreaking, it is functional and practical, emphasizing the vehicle's practicality over flashy aesthetics.

Practicality is at the core of the Dacia Duster Commercial's design philosophy. The vehicle has been specifically tailored for commercial use, addressing the need for a versatile and capable workhorse. The removal of the rear seats in favour of a spacious cargo area enhances its practicality, allowing for easy loading and transportation of goods, tools, or equipment. The Duster Commercial can accommodate bulky items with ease, making it an excellent choice for small businesses and tradespeople.

The boot space in the Dacia Duster Commercial is one of its standout features. With the rear seats removed, it offers an impressively large cargo area. The exact dimensions of the boot space may vary depending on the specific configuration, but on average, it provides a generous load capacity. The flat loading floor and tall roofline further enhance the usability of the space, enabling efficient organization and easy access to the cargo. Whether you need to transport supplies, make deliveries, or carry equipment, the Duster Commercial offers ample room to accommodate your needs.

Additionally, the Duster Commercial's cargo area comes equipped with practical features to secure and organize your load. These may include lashing points, hooks, and optional cargo partitions or covers. These additions help keep your cargo secure and prevent any movement or damage during transit.

Interior and Trims

The interior of the new Dacia Duster Commercial is designed with a focus on functionality and durability. While it may not boast luxurious materials or extravagant features, it offers a practical and comfortable cabin for commercial use.

The dashboard layout is straightforward and user-friendly, with controls and instrumentation easily accessible and within reach. While the overall design may be simple, it ensures ease of operation and functionality, allowing drivers to focus on their tasks.

In terms of cabin space, the Duster Commercial offers ample headroom and legroom for both the driver and the front passenger. This ensures a comfortable driving experience, even during extended periods on the road. However, it's important to note that as a commercial vehicle, the focus is primarily on cargo space rather than providing extensive rear passenger comfort.

Four trim levels are available: Essential, Expression, Journey and Extreme.

The Essential models offer additional features compared to the Access versions, although they still come with steel wheels. However, they do provide a stereo with DAB digital radio and Bluetooth connectivity, manual air conditioning, and a split folding rear seat, which is an improvement over the Access model's one-piece rear bench.

Moving on to the Duster Expression, it includes 16-inch wheels, body-coloured handles, silver wing mirrors, central differential locks, and a rear-view camera. Inside the cabin, there is an 8.0-inch touchscreen, cloth upholstery, a soft-touch steering wheel, and steel door handles.

In the case of the Duster Journey, Dacia equips it with 17-inch alloy wheels, grey door handles, roof bars and mirror housings, dark glass on the rear windows, and grey skid plates. The interior features automatic air conditioning, cloth upholstery, heated seats, fog grey detailing, a Multiview camera, and blind spot warning.

As for the Extreme variant, it enhances the regular Duster with a more rugged appearance. It boasts copper-coloured door mirrors, along with copper stitching on the seats, centre armrest, and trim surrounding the handbrake. Additionally, you'll find distinctive patterned exterior trim that resembles contour lines on a map.

Power and Performance

Only a few manufacturers offer bi-fuel models, but if you prefer the cost-saving benefits of using LPG as fuel, you'll be glad to know that Dacia still provides a dual-fuel option for the Duster. This particular model can operate on either petrol or LPG, emitting 145g/km of CO2 when running on unleaded and 127g/km when fuelled by LPG. Considering that LPG is significantly cheaper than petrol, choosing the bi-fuel variant could be a wise decision if your local fuel stations offer LPG.

The two-wheel-drive diesel version matches the CO2 emissions of the LPG car at 127g/km. It delivers an impressive fuel efficiency of 58.9mpg, which is much better than that of the dual-fuel car. The four-wheel-drive diesel option, although slightly less economical, still manages to achieve 53.3mpg on the combined cycle.

If you opt for a petrol car, the fuel economy is approximately the same for all three variants, averaging around 45mpg. Therefore, choosing between the 90hp, 130hp, or 150hp car won't significantly impact your fuel expenses.

Overall, the Dacia Duster Commercial is a commendable addition to the commercial vehicle market, offering exceptional performance, versatility, and affordability. With its reliable engineering, generous cargo space, and practical features, it caters to the needs of small businesses and tradespeople who require a robust utility vehicle. If you're seeking a budget-friendly option that doesn't compromise on quality, the Dacia Duster Commercial is undoubtedly worth considering for your commercial fleet.
