The base spec Access model includes 16-inch steel wheels, roof bars and electric front windows. ABS, Emergency Brake Assist and remote central locking are all standard, too. The Ambiance spec adds a 1.5-litre diesel engine and starts at £11,495. Again, you’ll need another £2,000 to add four-wheel-drive.

Upgraded equipment on the Ambiance includes an auxiliary socket, Bluetooth and USB connectivity. As well as body coloured bumpers, split folding rear seats and front fog lights.

The four-wheel-drive, Duster Laureate, retails at £14,995, which is around £1,500 cheaper than the entry-level Nissan Qashqai.

Optional equipment is limited, with the only boxes left to tick, comprising of traction and stability control on the diesel models, and metallic paint. Buyers can also add packages comprising of kit such as rear parking sensors and mudflaps.
