The Dacia Duster, which is the company's first genuine concept car, was one of the vehicles displayed at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show.

The Duster concept was styled by a team of designers from Dacia's parent company Renault. The designers came from Renault Design Central Europe and Renault Design Technocentre in Guyancourt, France.

The Duster is a crossover vehicle which combines the aesthetic benefits of a coupe with the functionality and versatility of a multi purpose vehicle.

The front end of the Dacia Duster features a broad bumper with two horizontal air-intake slits that are designed to suggest power. The grille features Dacia styling cues and is flanked by headlights which wrap over the front wings to form a tapering line of light that stretches rearward towards the doors.

Viewed from the side, the clear-cut lines of the wheel arches and tall doors reinforce the impression that Duster sits squarely on the road. The Anthracite Grey bodywork and extensive one-piece glazed sweep - made possible by the absence of a B-pillar.

The Duster's two-tone chocolate and blue interior is intended to exude a sense of well-being and warmth. The fully glazed roof fills the cabin with light, while the enveloping forms of the staggered slim-line front seats provide first class comfort and support. The driver's seat is incorporated in a structure which extends all the way from the sill to the centre console, forming a striking, one-piece focal point.

To further improve the usability and versatility of the Dacia Duster concept the interior can be configured for carrying either people or cargo. The four-seat 'daily driver' layout can be swiftly converted into a
leisure configuration in a matter of seconds. The passenger seat slides underneath the driver's seat on rails concealed in the floor to leave just one front seat and consequently free up a total carrying volume of two cubic metres.
