spy Photos of the new Dacia Duster.

despite the fact that several reports as well as pointed out, it seems that finally we will not see a version of 7 seats in the new generation of the Dacia Duster. According to the words of Francois Mariotte, sales and marketing director of the brand, the new generation of the Dacia Duster will not have that alternative, because at the moment, it does not enter into the plans of the brand.

The words of Mariotte were collected by Auto Express in an recent event in the factory of the brand in Tangier, Morocco, where the executive gallo further explained the reasons that the new Duster could not have this kind of variant of the bodywork.

According to Mariotte, to develop a version of 7 seats on the popular SUV would to put in danger the compact size of the model, as well as their awd system. This, as confirmed by the executive, it would be against the objectives of the model, so that the mark does not contemplate even this possibility for the future range Duster.


The new Duster will withdraw in September, in Frankfurt, 2017.

Francois Mariotte used to confirm the presentation of the new model, which as we already knew will be revealed live at the Frankfurt motor show 2017, which will be held from the 14 to the 24 of September of this same year. What we can’t yet confirm is whether we will see a revelation upon the model, as they have already made not a few brands over the last few weeks prior to the summer break, since according to some French media, the new Duster might be revealed in Paris before the opening of Frankfurt.

By what we know so far of the new SUV Dacia, will be based on a new platform, although this is probably an evolution of the current. The range of engines will be renewed substantially, with the addition of a new diesel engine of Renault, the block dCi 1.6 liter 130 HP that is used by other models of the Renault-Nissan Alliance. We will continue to count with versions of front-wheel drive and total, and according to by what they suggest prototypes camouflaged seen up to now will have an aesthetic continuity.

Since the first spy photos of this new generation we have been able to observe as the lines and volumes general of the prototypes are very similar to those of the current model, despite the fact that the new Duster will grow, and pretty, in length.
