The new Dacia Duster looks bigger and more attractive than ever in the upcoming third generation model.
Dacia is set to launch the new third-generation Duster on November 29, but what appears to be an official video has surfaced on YouTube a day early, giving us the first look at the new model of the popular SUV and confirming the hybrid option itself.
The new Dacia Duster inherits all the styling cues of the Bigster concept, which is expected to reach production by 2025 as the Duster’s big sister. Similarities include narrow headlights, a greenhouse shape, triangular taillights, and boxy fenders. Skid plates of generous size and characteristic “snorkel” on the front doors, communicate the adventurous character of the model, which seems to be more difficult than its predecessors.

The new Duster will reportedly grow in size, improve interior space and practicality. After all, those are among the main highlights of the Duster along with its off-road qualities and affordability.
In line with other Dacia design ranges, the new Duster will run on the CMF-B architecture. Apart from the turbocharged petrol powertrains, the third generation Duster will also be available with electric options. While most versions will be FWD, it’s safe to assume that Dacia will also offer an AWD option for the new Duster.
The Hybrid 140 seen in the video may mirror Renault’s plug-in hybrid configuration found in the Dacia Jogger. This includes the original 1.6-liter engine and two electric motors with a combined output of 138 hp (103 kW / 140 PS). Power is transmitted to the front axle via a multi-speed gearbox, while energy from standstill is stored in a 1.2 kWh battery pack.
We will explore all the details about 2024 Dacia Duster after being officially presented tomorrow. In the meantime, you can check out his new design by checking out the video below.
