Romanian car maker Dacia will launch its first 4X4 model in May, the company has announced.
Company representatives said today (Tues) more details about the new model would be available at the Geneva Motor Show.
Dacia, a subsidiary of Franceís Renault, hopes to repeat the success of its previous models, especially Logan, which registered sales increases in 2008, unlike the cars of many other car producers.
Dacia sold 311,282 cars last year, 20.5 per cent more than in 2008, of which it sold 270,000 in foreign markets, 56.1 per cent more than in 2008.
Dacia will launch its first 4X4 models in Europe, Turkey, Algeria and Morocco.
The Dacia Duster will be available in 4X2 and 4X4 models, with a 1.6 cylinder and 110 horsepower gasoline engine, as well as in models with two diesel engines - one with 1.5 cylinders and 85 horsepower and one with 1.5 cylinders and 105 horsepower.
The model will have low fuel consumption, according to the manufacturer. The diesel-powered cars will emit fewer than 140 grams of CO2 per kilogram in the 4X2 version and fewer than 150 grams of CO2 per kilometre in the 4X4 version.
It is the sixth Dacia model after the Sandero, the Logan, the Logan MCV and utility vehicles Logan VAN and Logan Pick-Up.
