The Dacia Duster Commercial has added to its collection of awards by taking the title of ‘Best 4x4 CDV’ at VansA2Z Van of the Year Awards 2016.
Fighting off tough competition the “shockingly affordable” crossover was praised by judges for it value, quality build, level of equipment and driving dynamics.
Launched at last year’s Commercial Vehicle Show, the Duster Commercial combines the great features of the award-winning Duster SUV on which it is based but with the same tax advantages of light commercial vehicles.
This win adds further to the Dacia Duster Commercial’s success which also recently won the What Van? Award for ‘Best 4x4 Van’.
Neil McIntee, Editor, VansA2Z.com, said: “Dacia has made an excellent return to the UK light commercial market and the 4x4 version of its Duster Commercial is so good we had to make it our 4x4 Car-derived Van of the Year. It’s well put together and the drive is good with a ride and handling that far exceed expectations. Off-road it is a more than adequate performer and overall represents good value for money.”
On receiving the award, Louise O’Sullivan, Head of Dacia UK said that the team were “delighted” to win the award which adds to the vehicle’s “fast-growing trophy cabinet.”She further went on to say that since its launch in 2015 the Dacia Duster has proved to be a “firm favourite with businesses who are looking for a great value and dependable vehicle that can also go off-road.”
The Duster Commercial is available in two trim levels – Ambiance and Lauréate – with Bluetooth connectivity and electric front windows standard on all versions. The Lauréate version adds air conditioning, cruise control, leather steering wheel, alloy wheels and electrically operated and heated door mirrors.
