The Bigster Concept is 4.6 metres long and described as “the Dacia way of making the C-segment accessible, delivering a larger, more capable vehicle at the cost buyers would expect from the segment below”. The machine features Dacia’s distinctive Y-shaped headlight design, with rugged, simple styling that echoes the smaller Duster. The SUV will be one of three new Dacias launched by 2025, while the company has also confirmed that it will be compatible with “alternative energy” as well as “hybrid” engines. Soon after the lunch of this new model hope we can rent the car for road tests or just leisure from car rental companies such as Redax Rent Brasov or other similar companies. Dacia Bigster may be a brand-new creation, but it still shares some elements with the second-generation Duster, such as the shape of the front hood, the protection plates in the front and rear bumpers, and the vertical black trim in the front doors. But the Bigster is stands out as a larger and more muscular SUV.
It features squared-off rear haunches, notably wider wheel arch extensions, and a new lighting architecture. The Dacia Bigster is designed to sit above the current Duster in the firm’s line-up as a “future figurehead of the Dacia range. Up front, there are horizontal Y-shaped headlamps on each side of the grille.
The latter incorporates additional lighting with an X-shaped badge in centre flanked by a pair of rectangular LEDs on each side. All seven elements combine into an almost continuous light bar that runs across the width of the front fascia. The front end design is mostly clean, but the muscular lines of the hood, the vertical intakes on the sides, and the big protection plate that covers most of the bumper give the SUV and crisp yet rugged look.
Dacia says the concept features protective exterior panels made from raw recycled plastics. It also showcases a new logo that the brand is set to adopt. Dacia says the Bigster is a “genuine vehicle made with genuine principles”, with “no bells and whistles, no chrome trim or imitation-aluminium” and protective panels made from “raw recycled plastics”. It represents “the very essence” of an SUV with “no more, no less than the essential” and ought to be powered by “both alternative-energy and hybrid engines”.
Overall, the Bigster concept looks like a very capable SUV.
