Dacia Duster Wins Best Budget 4x4 Tow Car Award
Impressive towing capacity was demonstrated by a Duster 1.5 dCi model in Ambience trim. The 4x4 costs just £13,495 but delivers 110 PS to all four wheels and comes with selectable drive modes. The 1.5-liter Renault engine provides the Duster with 240 Nm (177 lb-ft) of torque delivered through a six-speed manual gearbox.
“That price isn’t a misprint. For less than you’d pay for the tiny Kia Rio three-door, Dacia will sell you a five-seat 4x4…the Duster is undeniably a bargain. It makes a decent tow car, too…In fact, we’d be happy to tow on long motorway journeys with the Duster," the judges found.
