Dacia revealed the new Duster crossover for 2018 season. It will continue to use the same platform, and there are no big changes on it. However, it doesn’t stop designers and the company to prepare further editions. The 2019 Dacia Duster will definitely bring more changes since the upcoming model is not so exciting. Romanian carmaker, in cooperation with Renault, will deliver comfortable SUV with excellent mileage.
