Dacia Duster is now available with the new TCe 100 engine, the latest Alliance-created powerplant. Manufactured at the Pitesti plant in Romania, the TCe 100 is a new-generation engine that significantly reduces fuel consumption and substantially boosts performance. The CO2 emissions and fuel consumption of Duster TCe 100 are 18% lower than the SCe 115 that it replaces, ranking it at the top of its category in terms of petrol engines. Launched in France on July 30, 2019, the TCe 100 is available on the Access and Essentiel trim levels of Duster at prices that are as affordable as ever.
Duster continues to be available with the Blue dCi 95 and Blue dCi 115 diesel engines and the TCe 130 GPF and TCe 150 GPF petrol engines.
Equipped with a timing belt, the new, indirect injection turbocharged 3-cylinder petrol engine is lighter and more compact. The TCe 100 features all the latest technologies, including a turbocharger with an electrically controlled waste gate, an exhaust manifold partially integrated into the cylinder head, twin variable valve timing for intake, and bore spray coating.
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.
