Dacia has revealed PCP finance offers for the new Duster value-priced SUV. And with payments starting from £129 a month, the brand’s sheer affordability seems as strong as ever.
The Duster finance deals are based around the Dimensions PCP scheme, and all are over three years, at 5.9 percent APR. Dacia also throws in a £250 deposit contribution to all deals.
It’s the £9,995 Access 1.6 SCe 115 that is offered for the bargain £129 price, with a customer deposit of £612. But as this model is pretty basic, lacking air-con or even a radio, most buyers are expected to enter the range with the Essential 1.6 SCe 115.
This is priced from £11,595, and comes in at £159 a month on PCP, with an £892 customer deposit. The better-stocked Comfort is £13,195 on the road, or £179 a month with a £1,074 deposit. And the range-topping Prestige 1.6 SCe 115 is £14,395 or £189 a month.
Diesel models start from £13,595 with the 1.5 Blue dCi 115, which costs £179 a month. A Comfort is £199 a month and a Prestige is £209 a month. Buyers can also choose 4×4 versions of the petrol, but not the diesel. Dacia expects the petrol to comprise the majority of sales.
Around two in three Duster buyers choose higher-end variants, head of Dacia UK Louise O’Sullivan told Motoring Research; very few customers pick the sub-£10k Access.
PCP deals on the new car have been kept competitive, she explained, despite a small increase in prices, thanks to a significant uplift in retained values. The Duster’s better quality, stronger equipment levels and ever-greater market awareness have all helped here.
“Customers trading up from the old one may find they have lots of equity still left in the car. Factor this in and some of them might be paying as little as £100 a month to trade into the new model.”
