Dacia Praised in Austria

It seems like the Western Europe is offering more and more credit to the Dacia brand. Unofficial reports indicated that Renault’s low cost brand took full advantage of the scrappage schemes and managed to register impressive sales statistics.

For example, Dacia sold a total of 150,000 in Germany since 2005. But we are not only talking about sales figures here. The Romanian automaker has also claimed a top spot in the latest J.D. Power and Associates Germany Vehicle Ownership Satisfaction Study.

The latest popularity bonus for Dacia comes from Austria, with the Heute Viena daily praising the brand for its cost effective offer. The carmaker’s offer in the country includes the Logan Range (Logan sedan, Logan MCV Kombi, Logan pick-up and Sandero hatchback). According to the newspaper, the Austrian buyers are attracted by the Romanian model, which has an attractive starting price.

Heute considers the Dacia range offers good deals, as the Romanian automaker offers discounts of up to EUR1,000 for the Logan MCV Kombi, which retails for EUR8,790 and for the Sandero hatch that has a starting price of EUR6,990.

Dacia had also launched its first-ever SUV, the Duster, on the Austrian market, with the model already receiving positive reactions.

Since the Duster is a pioneering model for Dacia and has been well received by the public, we decided to see what it is all about and offered ourselves a test drive of the car. You can read our all wheel drive review here.
