Now, it is time for the Romanian SUV to receive its first tuning kit. The modification pack comes from German tuner Elia AG, a company which has played with Dacia’s vehicles before.
The tuning company offers two packages for the SUV. The first one uses the “adventure kit” name. This brings a bull-bar that features “DUSTER” badging, as well as set of side steps, with all the elements using a chrome finish.
But the company also offers a complete modification package for the vehicle. The fully-tuned (if we can call it so) Duster rides on custom rims (16 inch Elia Ventis - EUR110 per rim or 18 inch Elia Opal II - EUR185 per rim for the black finish or EUR169 per rim for the silver finish).
The car also features a redesigned front bar, sidebars and rear bar and wheel spacers, as well as a chrome exhaust tip. The Duster’s production fog lamps have been replaced with new ones that use LED technology.
As for the tech side, the vehicle’s 1.5 liter dCi diesel unit gets a “plug’n play” ECU remap that brings its power and torque from 110 hp & 240 Nm to 122 hp & 265 Nm. This can be yours for a price of EUR589.
The modification pack also targets the interior of the vehicle, bringing an “eco leather” finish, for a price of EUR169.
