Welcome to the off-road race battle you didn’t know you needed in your life… Until today! Audi RSQ8 vs new Dacia Duster!

That’s right, we’re seeing if this awesome Audi performance SUV has what it takes to go toe-to-toe with the cheap & cheerful Dacia Duster through a series of off-road challenges.

When it comes to price, there’s a massive gulf between the two. The Duster we have here starts at around £20,000, whereas the RSQ8 comes in at a whopping £107,000!! But that’s not the only difference…

When you take a look under the RSQ8’s bonnet, you’ll find a 4-litre twin-turbo V8 that can deliver 600hp & 800Nm. It’s also equipped with the awesome Quattro all-wheel-drive system, and it’s mightily heavy, weighing around 2,300kg!

As for the Duster, it’s a whole lot lighter, tipping the scales at just 1,400kg! And as you’d expect, it’s well down on power, with a 1.5-litre turbo diesel engine putting down 115hp & 260Nm.

Surely it’ll be an easy win for the Duster, right?! There’s only one way to find out… LET’S DO THIS!

    So all the time I was watching this showdown, I was just thinking how my little Jimny would outshine them both. To top it off, I would trust Suzuki in the longterm and I know it will end up being the more reliable over the lot.

    Hy, i have a duster 2018, 1.5 dci, to select hill decent control you have to hold the button down to engage. I have descended hills with mud or gravel way steeper than that, and it worked just like the Audi, easy and steady. I ve even tried withoud holdind the steering wheel, it doesn t pull on any sides, it goes down the hills steady and in perfect control!

    You know… this: „See what Matt‘s choice for xyz is…“ and than landing on a site where you basically have to request an offer from UK dealers is very annoying. 1. I may just be interested to see which car it is… 2. not everyone watching is from the UK… so makes no sense to request an offer at all… if you can figure UK Postal codes out to begin with…

    air suspension is just crap, 20k km or less its starts leaking or blows out completly, better VW group just pay the royalties to citroen and pay to use their Hydroneumatic genious suspension. My father had car like those, it would go 100k km until you need to replace the pressure balls.

    hill descent control on the Q8 squeaking like it's a 2007 toyota land cruiser. pathetic. let's be honest, the duster will outlive 2 RSQ8's (soup alphabet). back in eastern europe you have dacia, korean brands and japanese brands. the rest is either for plebs or oligarhs - both being useless layers of society.

    Bro, the Dacia is garbage compared to the Q8, I would be more fair to use the SQ8 since it has more torque for uphill but also he didn’t use the Q8 to the max. Cause he was to afraid to damage it.
