Dacia Duster was rigorous tested by the french journalists in Morocco. The first who published the test drive results was the french site www.autonews.fr, who made a material about Dacia Duster on the roads and sands of Marrakech.
The French journalists that tested Duster said that the car addresses to the vas majority and not to those who want a model close to the luxury segment. They also stated that there is no car on the market so cheap and that can provide what the Romanian Duster can. To prove that, in only 15 days Duster has received no less than 5.000 orders in France.
The French journalists recommend Dacia despite the "small imperfections" found on all low cost models. They also say that Duster offers an "outstanding comfort for all passengers and a good driving position for the driver".
The French journalists said that Morocco will become "the second home for Duster", since the production will reach 400.000 units per year, slightly more than the Mioveni factory where the production will reach 350.000 units per year. Currently, the Casablanca factory produces 70.000 units but in 2012 will be available the new factory in Tanger.
In Russia the Duster production capacity will be 60.000 units per year as in Brazil, while in Colombia and India the production capacity will be of 20.000 units per year and 30.000 units per year.
Dacia was ranked first in the European Union according to the rate of increase in the new car registration in March, by 61% compared to the same period last year.
