Practicality is a key aspect of Dacia’s identity, and the Bigster will offer ample interior space. It’s likely to come in both a three-row 7-seater configuration and a standard 5-seater version. The Dacia Bigster concept measured 4.6 meters (181 inches) in length, placing it in close proximity to vehicles like the Nissan X-Trail and Skoda Kodiaq in the larger D-SUV segment. If this measurement is maintained in the production version, it will make the Bigster the longest Dacia model

Speaking to Autocar CEO Denis Le Vot confirmed it will be priced well below its rivals. “It’s not going to start with a four,” he said.

He added:

“Less than 10 years ago, you bought something for €33,000 [£28,500], and then you go to the same dealership [for your new car] and they say the new car is €40-something thousand. Then lots of people will say: ‘Oh, no, I’m not doing that. It’s too expensive.’

“This is where Dacia makes sense, because we’re coming with, in the case of a C-crossover, the Bigster, and it’s not going to start with a four.”

There’s no word yet on what will be powering the new Dacia Bigster, however it’s likely to share parts with the Renault Austral.This would suggest a range of petrol mild hybrid units, as well as a full hybrid.

The new Dacia Bigster is slated to go on sale in 2025, around a year after the release of the next-generation Dacia Duster.
