Duster ESFDuster ESFDuster ESF
Renault’s low-cost Romanian brand, Dacia, has just revealed a set of images showing the very first limited edition version of its new small SUV model, the Duster. Called the Duster Ecole de Ski Francais (ESF), which translates to French Skiing School, this edition is priced at €18,990.

We can’t tell you how many such vehicles will be built as the automaker did not release this information, but it should be very rare sight on French roads, as the special Duster can only be bought by ESF skiing instructors.

Based on the Laureate 4x4, the Duster ESF marks the extension of Renault Group's 10-year partnership with the Ecole de Ski Francais and is powered by the 110 hp 1.5-liter diesel engine.

The Duster ESF comes equipped as standard with standard foglamps, electrically-adjustable heated exterior mirrors, manual air conditioning system, radio-CD with MP3 compatibility, four tray-type rubber mats, 16-inch alloy wheels and a set of four additional wheels fitted with Continental winter tires.

This more practical and rugged version of the regular Duster offers some distinctive styling and practical details, such as the ESF badging on the front doors (see pictures provided), a strengthened aluminum sump guard and transverse roof bars with a ski rack that can accommodate four pairs of skis.

We’ve already told you the Duster ESF costs €18,990, but this doesn’t include the few optional extras, such as the ESP + ASR traction control system for €300 ($425) and the Platine Grey body color for €450 ($637). The vehicle is also available in Glacier White paint.
