This is not the Renault brand but the Renault group that includes most of the diamond company, Dacia and Samsung. This model has just moved in the highest sales figures in the beginning of 2013, it does not all the time wear the diamond on the front as it is the ...

... Duster. It is badged Dacia and Renault does not matter, this is the model which, having attracted 155,729 customers, became the best-selling model in the world in early 2013 of the group. This "title" was made possible by a dramatic increase in sales of around 59% over the first five months of the year compared to the same period in 2012.

Renault Clio IV who held this status being marketed in Europe, it has sold "only" 132,686 copies. Duster is sold at 75% outside Europe (usually under the Renault badge) mainly in Russia, India, Brazil, Argentina, where volumes are higher than in France for example. For now, it is not expected to launch in China but a restyling is expected to fall at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Forecasters expect 360,000 sales Duster for 2013, the most profitable of the group model and a financial impact of approximately € 500 million on revenues of the group itself!

More broadly, the entry-level range (the Dacia range) knows a great increase in sales with 426,382 sales in January (17.7%) and can partly compensate for the continued decline in sales of the Renault brand as they represent now 40% of total sales! In this table, the Lodgy elapsed 36,200 copies (utility + LCV) experiencing lesser success.

People are more spending savvy now with their hard earned cash and Renault have produced this superb range of decent quality motors at a most agreeable price using proven engines and running gear.

I am still amazed at the little Sandero we have in relation to build quality and cost. I don't think it will be too long before Dacia becomes every other motor you see on the road!
