2016 Green Apple Awards SUV Title Winner: Dacia Duster

The Dacia Duster has won the award for Best Small SUV at the sixth annual Green Apple Awards. The ‘shockingly affordable’ Dacia Duster was voted into first place for the second consecutive year and was praised for its affordability, ruggedness and running costs.

The Green Apple Awards are organised by the Midlands-based The Green Organisation, and are judged by members of the Midland Group of Motoring Writers. Marks were awarded by the judges for the way a car drives and behaves in the real world, away from the testing laboratory.

Speaking about the Dacia Duster, one of the Midland Group of Motoring Writers said: “It’s cheap, it’s cheerful, it’s rugged and does what it says on the tin without any fuss or needless frills. The running costs are great, as is the price to buy or lease.”

Louise O’Sullivan, Head of Dacia UK was clearly delighted with the result and commented: “The Duster underwent a facelift earlier this year and its popularity amongst the British public has shown no signs of slowing. The Green Apple judges have proved just how economical the Duster is.”

Dacia has been very successful since in launch in the UK in 2013. Duster, the tough SUV, has struck a particular chord with Britons having seen 6,905 sales in the first 10 months of the year alone.

The multiple award-winning Duster has been part of the Dacia range since the brand’s launch in the UK in Janauary 2013 and is the most affordable SUV in the UK market.
