Latest News: Jeep features prominently in this year’s 4x4 Magazine ‘4x4 of the Year 2018 awards’, taking three of the honours’ top prizes. Among the magazine’s Special Awards, Jeep was crowned 4x4 Manufacturer of the Year and Jeep Wrangler scooped the Off-Road Award. Meanwhile Jeep Renegade was named Best Small SUV in the honours’ Class Awards. With the new Jeep Compass due on sale here in February and new Wrangler due later in 2018, it is going to be another important year for Jeep. 4x4 Magazine’s panel of experts recognised the company’s achievements in their awards. “The Wrangler will continue to be the dedicated off-road machine a brand like Jeep needs if it is to remain credible – which it clearly is,” said Alan Kidd, editor, 4x4 Magazine. “The arrival of the new Compass strengthens the company’s position still further. Jeep is absolutely getting it right.” On Wrangler’s Off-Road Award, the panel of experts said: “When a vehicle is still capable of winning awards when its replacement is already being built, that’s an indication of how far ahead it is. This Wrangler is more than 10 years old, yet demand is greater than ever and used ones are going up, not down, in value. More than ever, it’s the definitive off-roader.” And commenting on Renegade’s Small SUV win, they said: “Last year’s overall champion is still a winning proposition in its own highly competitive corner of the market. There are more refined options, but the Renegade has plenty of image, plenty of kit – and a set of off-road skills to leave the rest of the class standing still.” “’There’s Only One’ is what we say about Jeep, and millions of people all over the world will testify to that,” says Andrew Tracey, Country Brand Manager, Jeep UK. “So it’s especially good to see a panel of 4x4 experts agreeing that point too and not only recognising two of our models in their awards, but making us their top manufacturer. “With new Compass and Wrangler to come, and constant improvements being made to our entire range of cars, we are looking forward to 2018 and beyond.” The Jeep Wrangler range starts at £36,740 OTR for the 2.8 CRD Sahara. The Jeep Renegade range starts at £18,250 OTR for the 1.6E-TorQ 110hp Sport.

  • New Dacia Duster to debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed’s Moving Motor Show, on Thursday 23 June
  • New Duster features revised styling and improved standard equipment
  • New top-of-the-range Prestige trim level added to Duster line-up
  • New 1.2 TCe 125 petrol engine introduced
  • New Duster line-up still starts from a ‘shockingly affordable’ £9,495

Dacia will debut the new 2017 model year version of its ever-popular, no-nonsense Duster SUV at the Moving Motor Show, held during the Goodwood Festival of Speed on Thursday 23 June.

On display in the new Prestige dCi110 4x2 guise, the new Duster will make its first UK appearance at the legendary Festival, joining the rest of the ‘shockingly affordable’ Dacia range. At the Moving Motor Show, guests will also have the opportunity to get behind the wheel of petrol and diesel versions of the Sandero – the UK’s most affordable car – together with diesel examples of the Sandero Stepway and the award-winning Logan MCV, which is the UK’s best value estate car.

The 2017 Duster receives a number of external and interior upgrades, while the popular range is strengthened with the addition of the new range-topping Prestige version.

Instantly identifying the new Duster are new, squarer headlights, the revised front end styling adding to the SUV’s purposeful and robust appearance.

The new Duster is also enhanced with the availability of the new 1.2 TCe 125 engine, providing customers with the option of a more powerful engine and complementing the existing 1.6 SCe 115 engine. The new turbocharged 1.2-litre petrol engine provides 125 horsepower with 205Nm of torque at 4,000rpm and offers combined NEDC fuel consumption of 46.3mpg (4x2 version) and CO2 emissions of 138g/km. Available on Lauréate trim and above, the inclusion of the new engine in the line-up means that customers now have the choice of a petrol or diesel variant at every trim level. Powering diesel versions of the new Duster is the well-proven 1.5 dCi engine.

Standard equipment on the Duster has been upgraded, with DAB radio as standard from Ambiance trim and new interior upholstery on all trim levels. Additional changes to the interior include the dashboard now in a dark carbon finish, whilst there is a new satin chrome centre console surround and steering wheel inserts to match.

There are also several new options available on the new Duster, such as 16-inch ‘Tyrol’ diamond-cut alloy wheels, which add further presence to the SUV. Rear parking sensors are also available for the first time as a factory-fit option, while a rear parking camera is now available as an option on Lauréate trim and above. All new part-leather ‘Aspira’ upholstery can be specified as an option, offering more refinement as well as practicality. Pennine Green, a new deep green metallic paint, has also been made available for the updated Duster.

The 2017 Duster range is topped by the new Prestige version. On top of the Lauréate trim, the Prestige adds 16-inch ‘Tyrol’ diamond-cut alloy wheels, MediaNav Evolution (7-inch touchscreen multimedia system with satellite navigation) and rear-parking camera as standard. Priced at just £900 more than the Lauréate, the Prestige represents a customer saving of £250 compared to buying the extra equipment as individual options.

Starting with the Access level of trim, the new Duster line-up also comprises of Ambiance, Ambiance Prime, Lauréate and Prestige versions.

The entry-level Access offers standard features that include ABS and Emergency Brake Assist?ESC/ASR (Electronic Stability Control and Traction Control), longitudinal roof bars, a Thatcham-approved engine immobiliser, electric front windows and remote control central locking.

In addition to the specification of the Access, the Ambiance adds extra equipment that includes 16-inch 'Matterhorn' steel wheels, body-coloured front and rear bumpers, a 4 x 20W DAB tuner with steering-column mounted fingertip controls, Bluetooth, AUX input, USB connection for MP3 players, front fog lights and height-adjustable driver's seat.

On top of the Ambiance trim, the Ambiance Prime offers 16-inch 'Everest' alloy wheels and the exclusive Chestnut body colour.

The Lauréate trim adds even more luxury, its standard equipment including manual air conditioning,?electric front and rear windows, heated and electrically-adjustable door mirrors, on-board computer, leather steering wheel,?’Graphite’ cloth upholstery and 16-inch 'Tyrol' alloy wheels.?
