Dacia Duster facelift revealed ahead of its debut in Frankfurt


Shrawan Raja, I'm the Founder & CEO of IndianAutosBlog.com. I love teamwork and talking about cars.

The Dacia Duster facelift which is to be presented at the forthcoming Frankfurt Motor Show that starts on September 10th, was revealed today through two press shots.

Dacia Duster facelift front
New grille, sectioned headlights and a revised air intake round out the changes on the front fascia.

The external upgrades are very mild as the design features that contributed to the success of the model, are retained. Dacia say that the refreshed car sports “emphatic 4×4 design cues” that are hard to spot!

The front end gets a redesigned grille made of two chrome-plated bars, a new air intake and new double-optic headlamps featuring daytime running lights. The updates were to underscore the Duster’s road presence and its “go-anywhere” character, Dacia claims in its press release.

Dacia Duster facelift rear
Newly detailed taillights and a chrome-tipped exhaust are the only changes at the rear.

David Durand, Head of Styling for the Entry range at Dacia –

We built on the appeal of the original model and its proportions. Identity components such as the grille have been modernized. We have also strengthened the 4×4 cues of the vehicle, while keeping all its useful features. New Duster gets an even stronger character while retaining its initial DNA.

Duster logos are spotted on the roof bars, while the car stands on 16-inch “Dark Metal” alloy wheels that are shod with “Mud and Snow” tires.

Freshly detailed stoplights, a chrome-plated exhaust tip and new “4WD” lettering round out the differences at the rear. Dacia is yet to show us the interiors or outline the feature upgrades. We expect to hear from them again shortly as we head towards the Frankfurt Motor Show.
