Dacia has launched a Commercial version of the latest Duster SUV, which is available now priced from £15,309.
The new model offers a 1.5-cubic-metre loadspace and a payload of 493Kg.
Each Duster van is converted by Renault Tech at the factory and provides a flat floor with no loading lip from the tailgate.
The floor is fitted on site and comes with a carpet cover. As part of the van conversion kit, the Duster Commercial also features a bulkhead with load stop to separate the front passengers from the load area, four lashing hooks and a removable load cover up to the window line.
The regular parcel shelf remains in place, but the new extra load cover fills the gap to ensure a full cover for the whole load bay, both of which are easily removed to fit in bigger, bulkier items
To boost security, all Duster Commercials have fixed rear windows and an opaque film to restrict the view into the load area, plus an alarm.
Two petrol engines are available – the TCe 90 and TCe 130 – both in 4x2 application with front-wheel drive. The diesel option is the Blue dCi 115, available in a choice of 4x2 or 4x4. All models are fitted with a six-speed manual transmission.
The Duster Commercial is available in two specifications shared with the passenger Duster: Essential and Comfort.
As standard the Duster Commercial Essential features 16-inch steel wheels, body-coloured front and rear bumpers, roof bars, air conditioning, electric front windows, height-adjustable driver’s seat, DAB radio with fingertip controls, Bluetooth phone connectivity and USB connection.
Comfort specification adds 16-inch alloy wheels, front fog lights, satin chrome exterior detail to the roof bars, door mirrors and skid plates, darkened rear glass, body-coloured door handles and heated, electrically adjustable door mirrors.
There is also a seven-inch touchscreen with sat-nav and smartphone connection on Comfort models.
