Dacia launches new TCe petrol engines for Duster

Dacia Duster

Dacia has added two new petrol engines to the Duster range, announced at the 2018 Paris Motor Show.

The new, lighter, 1.3-litre TCe powertrain is available with either 130PS or 150PS.

To reduce particle emissions, a gasoline particulate filter (GPF) is fitted. 

After having renewed all its diesel engines with Blue dCi on 4x2 and 4x4 versions, Dacia is launching sales of these new Duster petrol engines available on 4x2 versions and from mid-2019 on 4x4 versions.

Order-taking will begin towards the end of the year in the UK.

Dacia also announced a new sat-nav system at the show. The Media Nav Evolution provides better touch response and smartphone connectivity through Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The brand has achieved the best first half-year sales in terms of volumes in its history. In Europe, Dacia achieved record sales for the first half of 2018 with 281,206 vehicles registered (+14.6%), and market share of 2.9% (+0.3 point). Dacia has now worked its way into the top five for retail sales in Europe.
