Duster TCe 100: more torque for an energetic drive

Mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox, the TCe 100 brings drivers even more versatility both in the city and out on the open road.
With 100 hp (74 kW) and 160 Nm of torque, it boasts greater energy efficiency and enhanced responsiveness thanks to the turbo. The new-generation powerplant provides optimum at-the-wheel pleasure through increased torque, available from the lowest engine speeds for livelier pick-up.

A key Dacia brand model, with over 1,515,000 registrations worldwide since 2010, Duster continues to rise in the ranks of the compact-car segment.

Once again this year, Duster has maintained its position as the best-selling C-SUV in consumer sales, with a total of 28,000 units between January and June 2019.
