Spyshots: Dacia Launching Facelift for Duster SUV

Dacia's first compact Sport Activity Vehicle entered production in 2013 and quickly made a reputation for itself as an amazingly capable off-roader offered at low prices. To save you money, Dacia limits the customization options and colors available on the basic trim levels, basically making the same car over and over again.

But Dacia isn't happy with just offering low prices and its latest Logan and Sandero models are available with touchscreen navigation, parking sensors and much better build quality. The Duster SUV will soon adopt these changes as well.

Our spy photographers caught up with this test vehicle as it was undergoing road testing in Spain. Despite the camouflage covering the front and rear, we can still tell this is the Dacia Duster facelift which will make its official debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show this September.

On the outside, the new Duster will get fresh headlights , grille and bumpers at front and at the back, a similar setup, with new rear lights and smaller changes to the rear bumper.

Inside, the dash of the new Duster will remain the same, without adopting the newer nav system of the Logan. But the instrument cluster will come out of the sedan. 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.

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.
