  1. Dacia Duster

For a more affordable option the Dacia Duster is ideal if you’re wanting something spacious and practical. This is great if your family has a love for outdoor activities, such as cycling there is more than enough space to keep your bikes in the boot. Although the price is more affordable it does come at a price, as some of the models are not as modern as the others. However, the new models are working to improve on this disadvantage. When it comes to the engines, the 1.5 litre diesel unit offers plenty of power and economy whereas, the 1.6 litre petrol unit is a lackluster offering on long motorway journeys.
