The Dacia Duster Commercial 4x4 has come out on top in the Best 4x4 Van category at the WhatVan? Awards 2018 for the third year in a row! Taken from the Dacia Duster, dubbed the most affordable new SUV in the UK, the Duster Commercial wowed the judges with its’ affordability and vast roaming capabilities making it an ideal choice for drivers who require a spacious vehicle and one that can go off-road when needed.
Louise O’Sullivan, Head of Dacia UK, said on the award: “It’s fantastic to see the Duster Commercial retain its’ crown and especially when its’ competing against much more expensive rivals. The win underlines how Dacia is not only out in front when it comes to providing passenger car buyers with an award-winning ‘no-nonsense’ product, but is also doing the same for cost-conscious LCV customers who need a vehicle that’s dependable and highly capable on and off-road.”
Editor of WhatVan? James Dallas added: “The Dacia Duster 4x4 is great value for money, drives well on the road and is a good option for customers in rural areas, such as farmers, vets, utility companies or park rangers who regularly need to venture off the beaten track into terrain that may prove inaccessible to most small or light vans.”
In place of the rear seat the Dacia Duster Commercial has a flat load bay and a payload of 550kg. There is the option between two different trim levels, the Ambiance and Laureate, Bluetooth connectivity, electric front windows and heated rear screen are available on entry level trim specs. On higher specifications you can expect features such as cruise control, alloy wheels and air conditioning to name a few!
