Dacia Duster won the first place in the “Best budget 4×4” category in the Tow Car Awards that analyzes the most suitable car for towing a caravan.
Dacia Duster received another award in the UK, a very important marketplace for the Romanian car manufacturer. The performance was attributed to a diesel 1.5 dCi and 110 HP version, all-wheel drive and Ambiance equipment level.The jury cataloged the Duster as "perfect for towing with a very low price. The label is not an error. For how much you pay on a Kia Rio three-door, Dacia offers a 4×4 five-seater. Duster is undoubtedly a bargain ", argued the jury.
The jury has reviewed the submitted models and had noted several features. The tests included the acceleration of 50 to 95 km/h, the braking from 50 to 0 km/h, starting on a slope, the change to the emergency lane. There were noted the towing capabilities, how easy is attached the trailer and the special mirrors, the spare wheel usefulness and qualities of the car (luggage capacity, passenger space, comfort, efficiency).
Duster competed in the category of vehicles with a weight up to 1424 kg, with other well-known models. Also in this category, the Kia Cee’d Sportswagon won the award for the Best Ultra-light tow car.
