The Dacia Duster is now available with an automatic EDC six-speed gearbox, making it the most affordable automatic crossover available in the UK.
The EDC transmission offers the smooth, comfortable drive of an automatic gearbox while still offering CO2 emissions and fuel economy close those of a manual transmission. The EDC gearbox also comes fitted with Hill Start Assist which prevents the car rolling back on hills by holding the brakes for long enough to allow the driver to apply the throttle.
The new gearbox is available on two-wheel-drive Laureate and Prestige versions of the Duster when fitted with the ever-popular dCi 110 diesel engine and offers CO2 emissions of 116g/km and fuel economy of 62.8mpg on the NEDC combined cycle.
Prices for the EDC gearbox equipped Duster start from £14,896 on the road with ordering opening in the UK in October 2016.
