Westover Group, one of the south’s largest privately-owned motoring groups, is celebrating the success of the Dacia Duster. The SUV vehicle won Value Car of the Year at The Sun Motor Awards for its build quality, off-road capabilities and affordability.

Readers of The Sun voted for the Dacia Duster as well as by a panel of automotive journalists and praised the new affordable vehicle for its off-road features including high ground clearance allowing the Duster to perform on many terrains and hill descent control, as well as the vehicle build quality.

A fleet of Dacia Dusters has also been provided to players in the England Rugby League for them to drive during the Autumn Test series. National Rugby League players returning from Australia for the matches against New Zealand will be driving the Dusters as the team travels across the country this season.

Mark Whittam, Group Operations Director at Westover Group said: “We are proud to represent Dacia in our portfolio of vehicle manufacturers. The Duster is a fantastic car and it’s easy to see why it is loved by The Sun readers, automotive journalists and of course, our England Rugby stars.

“Dacia has done an excellent job at creating a four wheel drive vehicle that is functional and practical, features great technology, looks great and is on sale at an affordable price.”

The award winning all new Dacia Duster went on sale at Westover Dacia and across the UK earlier this year and starts at £9,995. Dacia was also awarded ‘Best Value Brand’ at this year’s Auto Trader New Car Awards. The car features new technology, which is new to the Dacia range, such as climate control, keyless entry, blind spot warning and automatic headlights.

The Dacia Duster range can be viewed at Westover Dacia in the Corfe Mullen dealership or the Salisbury dealership. Alternatively, visit www.westovergroup.co.uk/dacia
