DROP that £52k Land Rover Defender. You don’t need it.
The aisles outside Sainsbury’s Local aren’t very high. The rugby club car park is not that bad.
All you need is a £17k Dacia Duster.
This new one coming next summer looks tough and cool and the 4×4 versions will keep you moving when the weather-bomb hits.
I think you’ll be able to have a new one outside your front door from around £8 a day.
Capital B business. Suppose Defender will cost you more.
The Duster will use the same 140hp 1.6-litre petrol engine as the seven-seater Jogger.
Or you can specify the 130hp 1.2-liter hybrid in front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. No diesel.
The new Terrain Control system on the 4×4 has settings for snow, mud/sand and off-road.
Skid plates and body coverings will not need to be painted after fitting.
We love the “snorkels” on the front doors, even though they’re only there for good looks.
The cabin is bigger and more organized than before. No skin. No chrome.
The air vents and door trims match the Y-shaped headlights.
You get washable upholstery on the Extreme trim.
With a 10-inch touch screen and wireless smartphone charging.
You may also notice there is a large DUSTER printed on the dash. Like DEFENDER on Defender.
According to a Dacia poll, three out of four young people spend their weekends in “hidden mode”, playing online.
I am surprised by that. I would go higher.
