We often talk about the fact that, when buying a car, the customer values a specific segment but, despite the fact that this is correct, the truth is that a key factor within this is the price that some models may have and others. Both Jeep Renegade 2019 and Dacia Duster are C SUVs, but their cost is quite different, enough to justify the purchase of one or the other?
We usually leave this point for last, but in this case it is one of the key aspects and one that clearly influences most other areas. The Dacia is a full-fledged low-cost, with a price starting at 11,260 euros, while the Jeep has a considerably higher starting point: 20,490 euros.
Traditionally it has been the factor that the Duster “punctured”, but its new generation has gained integers compared to its predecessor: the front imposes more, the lower protections give it presence, the bodywork as a whole is more defined… Our Jeep Renegade halo headlights fit for 2015-2019 Renegade. Although it is possible To say that the Renegade is more stylish, with a peculiar rectangular design and that it bets on the angular smoothing, something that distinguishes it a lot from its competition.
The Dacia Duster is slightly larger than the 2019 Jeep Renegade, having an advantage in virtually every dimension. It measures 4,341mm long, 1,804mm wide, 1,693mm high and has a 2,674mm wheelbase; while the American remains at 4,236 mm in length, 1,805 mm in width, 1,667 mm in height and 2,570 mm in battle.
This makes the Dacia offer a more spacious interior for both passengers and cargo, with a 445-litre boot that is larger than the Jeep’s 351. Folding down the rear seats the difference is still greater: 1,478 by 1,297 liters.
As expected, the Jeep Renegade has a broader standard equipment, including elements such as a center console with a 5-inch touch screen, air conditioning or an anti-puncture kit; but the difference may be less than one would expect, since even the most basic Duster (with less aesthetic steel wheels) already has some quite interesting points such as the hill start assist system, the speed limiter or emergency braking assistance.
The Jeep presents an offer of both gasoline and diesel blocks. The first are a 120 hp 1.0, associated with a six-speed manual gearbox and a front-wheel drive system; and a 150 hp 1.3, automatic and 4×2. Diesel options are greater, with the 120 hp 1.6 Multijet II as a base, 4×2 and manual or automatic; the 2.0 Multijet II 140 CV manual 4×4 in the middle zone and the 2.0 Multijet II 170 CV, automatic and 4×4 at the top of the range.
The Dacia does not offer such powerful engines, but its mechanical range is quite varied and even includes ECO versions. On the part of the gasoline there are two 115 CV 4×2 or 4×4 manuals and a 130 CV 4×2 manual, the diesels are the dCi 95 CV 4×2 manual and 115 CV 4×4 or 4×2 manual, and the most interesting perhaps is the LPG 115 CV 4×2 manual , with the valued environmental label and a cheaper cost per kilometer traveled.
