Remember when I was thinking that the Dacia Sandero Stepway is the world's cheapest Sport Utility Vehicle and you guys were telling me I was wrong? Well, I guess the table have turned now and I'm finally right. Well, not about the Sandero Stepway anyway, but about the Duster. Whatever, it's still a Dacia.
Unlike the automotive equivalent of a poseur a.k.a. the Sandero Stepway, this Duster thingy is apparently true to its roots. It looks like a hardcore SUV and as far as I can tell it delivers what it stands for. That's why I like it. Very much, I should add.
Sure, it's not the most powerful car out there, with those one hundred something ponies under the hood struggling to move the car whenever you floor it. It's also not the most filled with gadgets car, since you don't even have a sunroof to watch the stars above a mountain at night. With all things considered though, the Dacia Duster is still very much appealing to me.
There are few things I didn't really liked about it though. For example, I didn't exactly get why you can't honk from the steering wheel, like in almost any other car. I'm the kind of girl who actually enjoys honking at hunks whenever I pass one (isn't that a delightful play of words!) on the street.
I don't like construction workers honking at me, but I do I like the other way around, get it? Anyway, another bit I didn't like about the Dacia Duster is obviously its name. I mean, it's like driving a mop. At least they could have called it a the Dacia Vacuum Cleaner, to sound a little bit more high tech.
Even so, taking into account every downside and upside this car has, I still like it. It has all the basic functions and feature of what a car should have , but it also look rugged and ready for business. And as far as I got from my colleagues, it can walk the talk, not just the other way around.
