Dacia prepares to launch Duster SUV in the UK

If you have never heard of Dacia, you soon will – it is to Renault what Skoda is to VW.

The new low cost brand, which has been a big success in both emerging markets and the rest of Europe since 2005, will arrive in the UK at the end of June. Its main model will be the Duster SUV – think of a more basic, and far cheaper, version of the smash-hit Skoda Yeti.
