  • All-new Dacia Bigster on sale in 2025
  • Concept previews new large SUV
  • Sits above the Duster
  • Bold new design
  • A range of hybrid/electric powertrains expected

This is the Dacia Bigster concept, and it’s a new, large SUV which will sit above the Duster when it goes on sale in 2025 and serve as an alternative to something like a Kia Sportage.

This rugged-looking SUV shares many of its design cues with the recently-revealed new Dacia Duster, although this concept was actually revealed before that car, and it’s expected to be available with a range of petrol and hybrid engines.

New Dacia Bigster design

The Dacia Bigster concept was revealed a couple of years ago, and it’s a pretty bold design to come from Renault’s budget brand. This styling has already been translated onto the new Duster, and it has a tough, yet modern look thanks to the chunky black cladding and wide wheel arches.

The Y-shaped headlights and LED strips across the bonnet dominate the front end, with the updated Dacia logo also being illuminated. The large black plastic bumper also has the Dacia branding stamped into it, and there’s even a power bulge in the bonnet.

The side of the car looks equally purposeful. There’s a protective plastic side skirt running along the bottom of the doors, as well as a matching set of wheel arch extensions. The rear door handles are neatly integrated into the C-pillar to keep things looking clean.

The rear of the new Dacia Bigster looks just as imposing as any other angle. Key details include a boot lid spoiler, a sharp Dacia logo, Y-shaped brake lights – just like those found on the new Duster – and a large protective rear bumper.

New Dacia Bigster engines and performance

There’s no word yet on what will be powering the new Dacia Bigster, however it’s likely to share parts with the forthcoming Renault Austral.This would suggest a range of petrol mild hybrid units, as well as a full hybrid.

There’s no word on whether the new Bigster will be offered with front or four-wheel drive, however this rugged styling suggests that an all-wheel drive model is likely. This is something which is available on the Duster, so Dacia has the technology to implement it here.

New Dacia Bigster interior

While there are no official images of. the Dacia Bigster’s cabin, you can expect it to take a decent amount of design and tech from the new Dacia Duster. This car has a much more modern-looking cabin than its predecessor, and it has a lot more tech as wel.

Expect a similar interior design to the Duster (pictured here)

This means you’re probably going to get a 10.1-inch touchscreen, as well as a similar squared-off and chunky design befitting of an SUV such as this.

New Dacia Bigster: when will it go on sale?

The new Dacia Bigster is slated to go on sale in 2025, and it’ll sit above the Duster in the range. This means it’s likely to fetch a higher price than that car, with a figure of around £25,000 to be expected.
