2024 Dacia Duster Rendered With Bigster Concept Design Influences

2024 Dacia Duster – Dacia will expand its SUV range with a new flagship model. It will be available for purchase in 2024. The Register will be the flagship model of the brand. This will help Dacia enter the lucrative market for large SUVs. This will allow buyers to choose a more affordable alternative to the Land Rover Discovery Sport and Volkswagen Tiguan. Given the competition, the Bicester is a crucial car for the brand. Dacia claims that the SUV will add “a touch of coolness” to the marque’s image thanks to its new design language. This is one of three models that Dacia will bring to the market in 2025.

2024 Dacia Duster Review

Renault, Dacia’s parent, plans to target the mid-size SUV segment and the family hatchback segment. The new Bicester will play a major role. It will join the Renault Clio which replaces Kadjar’s Renault Austral. To ensure that Romanian brands don’t move too high upmarket, the company has created a platform strategy. All Dacias, including Bicester, will now use the same CMFB foundations that were used for the Sandero hatchback. The platform will be used by Dacia to provide a one-size-fits-all solution. The brand will expand Bigster’s base and enable the company to enter larger markets at a more affordable price.

Redesign

A prototype of the Bicester was shown to the public by Dacia in early 2021. These images are exclusive and show the final car when it debuts. According to the company, the SUV will measure in around 4.6m. This is roughly the same length as Land Rover Discovery Sport. It will also be bigger than popular models such as the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Interior

The interior promises to be spacious. It is unclear if the SUV will be available in a seven-seat version. With its two other offerings, the Dacia Jogger MPGV, which is affordable at seven seats, the brand will be able to appeal to those who need more space. The CMF-B platform is open to a variety of powertrains including hybrid power. Although hybrid drives are expensive, Dacia has had a difficult time with them. The Bicester MPV, as well as the new Jogger MPV, have been leading the charge in this area.

Engine

We don’t anticipate seeing Sandero’s 64bhp, 1-liter petrol engine. The SUV’s size and weight make this possible. It would simply not be possible for the engine to propel the Bicester at any speed other than tectonic. This turbocharged engine produces 89 bhp and will be the first in this lineup. Capture could source larger engines while Dacia could use its 128bhp four-cylinder TCe130 petrol engine.

Dacia indicated that the Bicester will be available with the same BiFuel petrol/LPG motor as the Sandero. Another focal point of the car will be its hybrid drive. Clio E-Tech may offer the 138bhp, four-cylinder hybrid drivetrain with a 1.6-liter engine in Clio E-Tech. The same system is being looked at for the Jogger MPV. Renault confirmed that the new hybrid drivetrain was being developed for SUVs. The system uses a turbocharged, three-cylinder engine with 1.2 liters of power and can produce up to 200 bhp.

2024 Dacia Duster Price & Release Date

Dacia will not lose sight of its budget-conscious image despite the Bigster’s increased size and fancy hybrid technology. Dacia already stated that prices would be lower than similar vehicles in the same segment, so think more about Tiguan rather than T-Roc. Based on the brief description, we expect a starting cost of around PS20,000. This would lower the cost of Tiguan’s popular model by around PS5,000 and nearly PS2,000 compared to the Skoda Karoq, which is more affordable.
