Dacia has released a new ‘Ambience Prime’ trim level for the Sandero, Duster and Logan MCV. The new range sits above the mid-range Ambience but below top-spec Lauréate. Read our complete guide to find out what’s new…
The most obvious difference between Ambience Prime and standard Ambience trim is an exclusive Chestnut metallic paint finish. The Sandero and Logan MCV are fitted with 15-inch alloy wheels as standard while the Duster benefits from larger 16-inch alloy wheels at no extra cost.
Front fog lights are offered as part of the Ambience Prime package on both the Sandero and Logan MCV – this feature is not available on the Duster, however. The interiors of these cars benefit from electric front windows and a radio that features a CD player, AUX input, USB connectivity and Bluetooth compatibility as standard.
All three cars are fitted with body-coloured bumpers, emergency brake assist as standard and, unlike much of the rest of Dacia’s range, traction control. The rear seats fold in a useful 60/40 split to help make loading and unloading bulky items a little easier.
The Sandero in this trim level costs between £7,295 and £9,095 depending on engine specification while the Logan MCV will set you back between £8,295 and £10,095. The Duster costs between £10,995 for a basic two-wheel-drive version, up to £14,495 for the 4×4 diesel model.
If you were to specify all this equipment as optional extras it would cost nearly £1,200, yet these cars are all priced at just £500 more than standard Ambience models. This means they represent excellent value for money.
