Spyshots: Dacia Duster Facelift Headed to Frankfurt

We have no doubt now that Dacia's facelifted Duster SUV will make its official motor show debut in September at the 2013 IAA. We'll probably bring you full details even before that, but for now there's a fresh batch of photos which we captured showing the Duster Facelift in camouflage.

The Duster came out in 2010 and since Dacia has a host of new vehicles on its affordable car dealer's lot, it's now the oldest car from the Romanian brand.

New headlights , grille and bumpers are going to differentiate this car at the front, and similar changes will be operated at the back.

Dacia doesn't like to make a facelift for the sake of looking different, so just like with the Logan facelift, the changes will be about function more than looks.

Inside, we believe the SUV will remain largely the same, but will adopt the chromed and restyled instrument cluster straight from the Logan. For the first time, the Duster will be fitted with cruise control.

The engine range will likely remain the same, but we've learned the 1.5-liter dCi diesel will be available with the Eco2 package which lowers emissions though a number of fuel-saving measures. We wouldn't be surprised if Dacia also put the 1.2 TCe turbo with 115 hp from the Lodgy into the Duster, replacing that underpowered 1.6-liter naturally aspirated base unit. Unfortunately, we haven't been able to confirm this.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
