Introducing the Dacia Duster Commercial
When describing the trusty Dacia Duster the terms 'rugged' and 'robust' are often used. These adjectives perfectly describe the UK's most affordable 4x4 van, the Dacia Duster Commercial.
Available in two-wheel or four-wheel drive, the Duster Commercial offers enhanced flexibility and capability compared to its passenger counterpart.
This van is ready for business and provides LCV customers with a vehicle that offers the quality and value expected from a member of the Dacia range.
There are just two fuss-free specifications to choose from: Essential and Comfort. Meanwhile, the Duster Commercial can be powered by strong and efficient TCe petrol or Blue dCi diesel engines.
Design and Practicality
Becoming a van means the Dacia Commercial has had its rear seats removed to allow as much cargo space as possible as well as ensuring the loading space is entirely flat with no loading lip from the tailgate.
Front passengers are protected by a bulkhead with load stop, which essentially separates the load area.
Big and bulky items can easily fit in the remarkably decent 1.5 cubic metres of volume cargo area, which is 1,557mm in length and 1,247mm wide in the four-wheel drive version.
Accommodating a payload of up to 492kg, the Duster Commercial is the perfect business partner for various working professionals. Plus, the fixed rear windows with an opaque film ensure the contents of the van are hidden from sight, whilst the alarm provides additional reassurance.
Technology and Safety
A simple touchscreen media system, within easy reach, is the focal point of the sturdy and spacious interior. In terms of standard equipment, both the Essential and Comfort trims are well-equipped.
Opt for the Comfort spec and you'll get a boost of technology equipment such as a MediaNav Evolution 7-inch touchscreen media system incorporating:
- USB and Aux connections
- Bluetooth for phone and media connectivity
- Smartphone connection via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Safety features such as rear parking sensors and a reversing camera assist the driver and make parking or difficult manoeuvres much simpler. You can also include a spare wheel as an optional extra on either trim, which doesn't take up any cargo space.
Engines and Performance
Two petrol engines are available with the front-wheel drive version of the Duster Commercial. You can choose between the TCe 90 and the TCe 130, which produce 89bhp and 128bhp respectively. Both engines will return up to 45.6mpg (WLTP).
The less powerful petrol engine offers the maximum payload of up to 492kg, whilst all other engines offers a maximum payload of up to 486kg.
If you're wanting stronger pulling power, improved fuel economy and the option of four-wheel drive you'll need to pick one of the diesel options. Both diesel variants produce 113bhp and 192lb ft of torque. Select the two-wheel drive diesel version as you should expect up to 57.7mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 128g/km.
Emissions are reduced and efficiency is enhanced thanks to the Stop&Start feature, which comes as standard on all Duster Commercial models.
