Latest News: The Quadrifoglio badge once again lives up to its name, amassing two more accolades for the Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio at the annual What Car? Car of the Year Awards 2019. Judged by the expert team at What Car?, the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio took home ‘Performance Car of the Year’, following its ‘Sports Car’ category win in 2018, while the Stelvio Quadrifoglio fought off stiff competition to take the crown for ‘Best Sports SUV for more than £60,000’. The Giulia Quadrifoglio came in for praise from Steve Huntingford, editor of What Car?, saying “It’s often said that getting to the top is easier than staying there. So by that reckoning, the Giulia Quadrifoglio’s second Car of the Year category win is arguably a greater success than its first. But it should be no surprise – after all, we’re talking about a comfortable, spacious, well-equipped saloon that’s more fun to drive than rivals costing tens of thousands more”. Steve Huntingford, What Car? Editor said of the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio: “The hottest version of the Stelvio SUV is outrageously fast, but still feels light and responsive thanks to steering that's super-quick without making the car feel nervous. Add in great body control and four-wheel drive traction and the Quadrifoglio continually encourages you to make the most of its performance”. Both the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio and the Stelvio Quadrifoglio are powered by a 510hp, 600Nm Bi-Turbo V6 petrol engine, which allows them to reach a top speed of 191mph and 176mph respectively, while reaching 62mph from zero in just 3.9 seconds in the Giulia and 3.8 seconds in the Stelvio. Arnaud Leclerc, Managing Director, FCA UK, commented: “Alfa Romeo cars have always appealed to the heart with their Italian passion, flair and dynamics, but these awards show that the latest models also appeal to the head. To see the pinnacles of the new Alfa Romeo range lauded by the experts at What Car? makes these wins even more rewarding.” To coincide with these wins, Alfa Romeo UK have secured further right-hand-drive allocation of the limited edition Giulia Quadrifoglio NRING and Stelvio Quadrifoglio NRING models, priced from £82,500 OTR and £89,500 OTR respectively. Just 108 editions of each model are available for the whole EMEA region, celebrating the records achieved by Alfa Romeo at the legendary Nurburgring. The Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio is available now priced from £63,500 OTR, while the Stelvio Quadrifoglio starts from £69,990 OTR.  To find out more about the award-winning Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio ranges, speak to our Sales Teams at Bedford, Northampton and Kings Lynn

New Dacia Duster makes its debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed

  • 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.
