Dacia has launched a new range-topping Extreme SE edition for its Duster crossover - the first model to feature the French firm’s new logo.

It comes following the success of the previous Extreme SE model, which claimed 20 percent of the Duster's overall sales - the model’s most popular specification level.   

The redesigned emblem comes in orange, while the door mirrors, roof bars and tailgate have mild but exclusive orange accents. In addition to the bright features are black 17-inch wheels.  

The orange theme continues inside, with orange door inserts and stitching along the seats and door handles. 

It is priced from £18,295, making it £300 dearer than the current top-of the range Journey model - though comes with the same standard equipment, including keyless entry, heated front seats, Multiview camera, rear parking sensors and automatic air conditioning. 

For interior tech, the Extreme SE also features an 8-inch infotainment display as standard, supporting AppleCar CarPlay and Android Auto. 

Like the other trim levels in the Duster range, the Extreme SE can come with a range of petrol and diesel engines, as well as Dacias’s “Bi-Fuel” units, which can use petrol and LPG.

The base model is powered by a TCe 90 4x2 engine making 90bhp, followed by the 99bhp TCe 100 Bi-Fuel 4x2 engine, which is priced at £18,795.

The most expensive engine is the 113bhp Blue dCi 115 4x4, priced at £22,445. 

All Duster Extreme SEs come equipped with a six-speed manual transmission as standard. 

Dacia’s automatic gearbox comes as standard on the TCe 150 model, while the range-topping Blue dCi 115 is available with the option of four-wheel-drive.

The Dacia Duster is the firm’s second-most popular model, with 111,323 units sold across Europe, though the company’s Sandero hatchback remains on top.
