Duster is praised for value, style and comfort
London - Arabstoday
In its third annual awards, CarBuyer.co.uk has named the Dacia Duster as its 2013 Car of the Year.
The PPA Award-winning website praised the Duster SUV for its incredible value, saying it offers the style, space and comfort of cars that usually cost nearly twice as much. And despite stiff competition from the likes of the Skoda Octavia and SEAT Leon, the Duster was the the unanimous choice of the judging panel when it came to selecting its overall winner.
The top-spec Duster Laureate also won Best 4x4, thanks to its high equipment levels and great off-road ability for only £14,995. Meanwhile, Dacia’s impact on the marketplace also saw the company pick up the Buyer’s Award for its transparent pricing and no-haggling policy, which takes the stress out of buying a car for many customers.
Over the past 12 months, CarBuyer’s expert road testers assessed all new cars that hit UK roads for running costs, value for money, reliability, practicality, comfort and how well they drive. Other winners across the 16 categories include the new Skoda Octavia for Best Family Car, Mazda 6 for Best Large Family Car and Best Estate Car, and the Ford Fiesta for Best Small Car.
