11. DACIA DUSTER
DACIA was established in the UK with the Duster, and its rugged charms and simple character have been a recipe for success. There’s an updated model due in 2018, but until then the current version delivers the same no-nonsense family car ability it always has.
Four-wheel drive is available with all engines in all trim grades, and while there are no lowrange gears, a super-short first gear helps with any off-roading you want to try.
