Dacia is promoting the second generation Duster in its homeland by using the famous soundtrack of the Ghostbusters movies.

The Romanian SUV isn’t chasing any ghosts in its official TV spot, but it does highlight some of its novelties that are meant to make it more appealing to potential customers.

Portrayed as a go-anywhere vehicle, the all-new Duster features new equipment like a multi-view camera system, blond spot warning, hill descent control, hill start assist, automatic headlights, keyless entry and new curtain airbags, among others.

Dacia will launch the second-gen Duster in various markets across Europe in the coming months, with pricing to be announced soon. In the United Kingdom, it is set to arrive next summer, and buyers will be able to choose between two petrol engines, with 115PS (113hp) and 125PS (123hp), with the former coming in an LPG version as well, and two diesels that are rated at 90PS (89hp) and 110PS (108hp) respectively.

Is A £90k Mercedes-AMG E63 S Really 10 Times Better Than A £9k Dacia? 4

It’s David versus Goliath in CarWow’s latest video, which puts together two very different cars against each other: the estate versions of the Mercedes-AMG E63 S and Dacia Logan.

In Britain, the former can be had from around  £90,000 and the latter in MCV (wagon) from close to  £9,000, while the tested cars here are priced at about  £110,000 or the equivalent of $148,000 for the Mercedes and  £11,000 or $14,800 for the Dacia.

You might say that the two estates have absolutely nothing in common, apart from their five-door body styles and the same number of wheels, as the differences can be overwhelming, which should put this review in our ‘Science Fiction’ category, if only we had one.

Still, for the sake of the very unusual video, which won’t surprise anyone, let’s see what Mat Watson tried to do. First, the  Dacia Logan and  Mercedes-AMG E63 S were unleashed on the drag strip a few times, although that’s a very enthusiastic word to use for the Romanian budget car, which has only 90PS (89hp) from a 1.5-liter dCi diesel engine, whereas its German counterpart makes do with 612PS (604hp).

Next came a brake test, from 70mph (113km/h), which was won, again, by the super estate, and finally, the latter proved to be more comfortable as well, thanks to its air suspension.

So, what’s the purpose of this video? Well, apparently, trying to find out whether the 10x price difference between the two is that obvious, and we’ll only tell you this: the Merc’ is at least 10x better, if you ever had your doubts.

New Dacia Duster Detailed In Massive Image Gallery And Videos 24

Dacia took the 2018 Duster to Greece for its first test drives, hence the 216 photos and 3 videos released by the automaker.

Described as an entirely new generation by the Renault-owned brand, the 2018 Dacia Duster looks more like a significant facelift, with visual tweaks made here and there, and some technical upgrades applied to different parts.

These include the improved insulation, new electric power steering, and a variety of new gizmos that should appeal to future owners, such as hill descent control, blind spot warning, automatic headlights, multi-view camera system, and keyless entry.

Additionally, Romania’s budget SUV benefits from a new front bumper and hood, for increased pedestrian impact protection, alongside new curtain airbags.

Elsewhere, the 2018 Dacia Duster looks pretty much unchanged, even using the old MediaNav infotainment system on better equipped models.

Customers will get to choose between two petrol engines, with 115PS (113hp) and 125PS (123hp), available with four-wheel drive on demand, an LPG variant of the former, and two diesels, rated at 90PS (89hp) and 110PS (108hp). The latter can be had with 4WD and an ‘efficient dual-clutch’ (EDC) automatic gearbox, as extras.
