CASCAIS, Portugal – By doubling its SUV offerings to two models by 2025, Dacia will increase its market coverage to 80 percent in Europe, company executives said, while offering a pathway to higher margins.
Dacia will launch the third-generation Duster small SUV by the second quarter of 2024. It will be followed a year later by the new Bigster, a SUV that brand CEO Denis Le Vot described as “between a compact and midsize model” at 4.6 meters long.
The new Duster will be shown to the public on Feb. 26 at the Geneva auto show.
The third-generation Duster and the Bigster will be built on the Renault-Nissan CMF-B architecture. It is also used two other Dacia models, the Sandero small car and the Jogger compact crossover.
