We urgently need this Dacia Duster pick-up
Romania's got an adorable little two-seat Duster workhorse. The UK needs it NOW
Well this is extremely good news. This is a tiny Dacia Duster pick-up, and suddenly we can’t think of anything we want more.
It’s an official thing, too. Initially built by a third-party, Dacia itself has since taken the chopped-up Duster under its own wing. It’s previously offered the much larger, double-cab Duster Oroch pick-up, but here you trade the back seats for load space in an altogether titchier package. One we’re even more smitten by.
There’s just one engine choice – a 1.5-litre diesel with 113bhp – and one colour option. White, of course. It’s manual and all-wheel drive only, too. Like we said: an honest little workhorse. And one with 1,000 litres of carrying capacity in that modest little bed.
Sales are in Romania for now, where it starts at around £20,000 including taxes. Which sounds a lot when you can buy a basic Duster (albeit not diesel or 4x4) for a smidge under £12,000 in Britain, leaving plenty of change for an angle-grinder and some bandages. But that’s not to say we’re any less in love. Please bring it here, Dacia.
