Even in its second generation, the Dacia Duster is based on the proven Logan/B0 platform.

The 2018 Dacia Duster features an evolutionary design, a move Duster fans will much appreciate. Dacia has not released the dimensions yet. However, from the pictures, substantial changes from outgoing model are unlikely. The first-gen model is 4,316 mm long, 1,822 mm wide and 1,630 mm tall, and has a wheelbase of 2,673 mm.

Dacia is yet to release the details and specifications of the 2018 Duster. The low-cost SUV continues riding on the Logan/B0 platform as its basis through the second generation. Base models should still have a front-wheel drive drivetrain layout, with a 4×4 system available only in the upper-tier configurations to retain the bargain entry pricing. Once again, Dacia may offer engines with displacements ranging from 1.2- to 2.0-litre. These would include the familiar 1.2-litre TCe engine as the frugal petrol unit, as well as a new 1.6-litre dCi diesel engine replacing the 1.5-litre dCi unit.
