The Bigster SUV model, which previews the brand’s forthcoming huge SUV, was introduced by Renault’s sub-brand Dacia. The French automaker recently unveiled its future plans, which include the introduction of three new models by 2025 and a speed limit of 180 kmph for Renault and Dacia vehicles.
The new Dacia Bigster SUV, according to the manufacturer, will be the first model to feature the brand’s new logo. Dacia has already filed a patent application for the new badge style, which boasts a sleek font. The new badge can be used on upcoming Dacia models. The upcoming five-year vision for the brand promises more efficiency in the design and development of future products.
By 2025, Dacia expects to release three new vehicles, the first of which will be the Bister. The Dacia Bigster will be the brand’s signature product, sitting above the Duster in the lineup. It will be available in both ‘alternative fuels’ and hybrid powertrains, according to reports. Where it comes to pricing, the new Dacia Bigster is expected to compete with the Skoda Karoq and the Volkswagen Tiguan. The SUV’s size, however, will make it an indirect competitor to larger SUVs like the Skoda Kodiaq.
The CMF-B platform, which is shared by Renault, Nissan, and Mitsubishi, underpins the Dacia Bigster. The SUV will be the longest Dacia model yet, measuring 4.6 metres in length. The new Bigster, according to the brand, would be a decent value for money commodity with a price tag that is comparable to smaller SUVs.
“The Bigster is Dacia’s way of making the C-segment available, offering a bigger, more capable vehicle at the cost consumers would expect from the segment below,” Dacia said in a statement.
The Dacia Bigster has an aggressive front fascia with a full-width grille that dominates the design. The new iteration of Dacia’s signature Y-shaped headlight is housed in the front grille. It has a squared-off front bumper with a wide central grille and a pair of vertical air intakes, as well as LED lights that seem to be built into the grille.
The Dacia Bigster has the side profile of a larger Duster SUV. Flared wheel arches and wide five-spoke alloy wheels are featured. The entire body is covered with black plastic cladding. The Bigster’s rear end features a pair of Y-shaped taillamps and a tidy tailgate with a huge Dacia sticker.
The new Dacia Bigster is said to have influenced the design of the next-generation Renault Duster. The group is also said to be working on a 7-seater Duster that would be comparable in size to the Bigster. The CMF-B platform will be used to build seven vehicles, including two hatchbacks, two sedans, and three SUVs, according to the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance. The next-generation Kicks, Duster, and Captur are all likely to be part of the SUV lineup.
