It’s time for an awesome three-way budget off-roader showdown!

We’ve brought together the new Dacia Duster, the LADA Niva & the Suzuki Jimny Commercial to see which is the best off-roader you can buy for £20,000 or under.

So let’s see how their stats compare. Starting off with the Niva, it’s powered by a 1.7-litre engine that can put down just 85hp & 130Nm. So it’s clearly not that powerful, but it does come with a low-range gearbox and a central locking differential!

Next up we have the Suzuki Jimny Commercial. It’s got a smaller engine than the LADA, powered by a 1.5-litre petrol engine, but its power output is bigger, at 101hp and 130Nm of torque. It also comes with the ability to put it into four-wheel-drive lock or low-range four-wheel-drive.

Then finally we have the Dacia Duster. It’s powered by a 1.5-litre that can deliver 115hp & 260Nm - so easily the most power out of the three! However, unlike the other two cars, it doesn’t have a central locking diff!

So what do you think, could the Russian export snatch the win? Or will the Jimny or Duster stroll to victory? You’ll have to keep watching to find out!

    I now own my second duster, the first i bought some years ago,it was a 2012 model i bought it new in Germany for about 17k €, great car, drove it for 300k km and had absolutely no problems,only the typical service,oil,brakes etc, unfortunately totaled it when someone hit me, airbags worked great,i now have a 2017 model,also absolutely no problems with 140k km on the clock 🙂 i am considering buying a '22 model now.absolutelly great car for it's price, would recommend it to everyone looking for a car in the under 25k € range, won't regret it that's for sure. 🙂💯 (I live in greece and off-road alot with it, sand and gravel I've never been stuck,as for snow i haven't tested it so I couldn't say,but in my opinion it is a great car, that's the reason I am considering buying my third)

    Would have been more fair to compare the Lada Niva Bronto, wich should be around the same price point as the Jimny and Duster. With it's 2 self locking diffs, bigger off-road tires and it’s lifted / reinforced suspension it would probably outperformed all of them off-road (let’s not talk on road).

    @Andrei Damian CarWow when it was started was a great channel. The issue is the presenter and their "off-road" expert know nothing about off roading. Doing a race up a slippery hill is not an off road test. Also a proper test would be to have the same driver and tyres for all vehicles, if that was done the duster would have done better than the stupid lada

    @Stirb Iuliu Duster was great, but it is too much of a long car for hardcore offroading. Jimny is shorter, therefore it is simply easier for it to get dirty like that.

    I believe it is an e-locker and only on some models. It is manually selected but automatically disengages electronically when speed is above 30km/h. So it's not a true locker but a sort of half way locker. Axles are still open diffs but the traction control seems decent.

    Had the Jimny a more modern turbo engine (e.g. 1.4 boosterjet) and I'd choose it hands down. So if I had to buy one as my only car I'd go for the Duster since it's fast and well equipped! The Niva is not that bad as some journalists say, but I'd get it as my second vehicle.

    Hey Matt, you clearly did your best to make the Dacia look the worse, putting in on the worse slope at the beginning, stalling the engine when it was going to pass... etc, are you a Salesman with commission working for Suzuki?


    MISTER SIR3 أيام قبل

    They also turtled the Jimny around the speed course, so I don't see any bias anywhere. It's simply not a thoroughly done research, but it doesn't seem to be either. These places can't test the cars at their limits anyways so it's only good to find base values, not true strengths. The Duster had most weaknesses exposed overall tho, which makes sense because it is a car that is compromised to a degree in order to also work well on regular roads and longer distance driving. All in all, if you know what you need in a car, then you also know what to take away from this video.

    i never thought much of the Duster, not a SUV guy anyways ... then I drove one for Safari in Africa for 100s of miles and it was REALLY GOOD. i was geniunely impressed by the bang for your buck, not even kidding. it looks rather good as well. i love the jimmny but as a rental in africa or iceland, the duster is MUCH cheaper yet bigger and drives really really well offroad. it lacks a bit in the power department onroad but so does the jimmny i became a fan of the duster, help 😞

    The best off roader is a Jimny. I have a 2017 one that went from stock to a mini monster state. It does everything the big guys are doing. The best advice for a beginnner I can do is (I wish someone would have written this before to me lol): 1. Protect transfer case, radius arms, front/rear axle housing. 2. Rock sliders 3. 2" lift (I got EFS, its great) 4. M/T tires, stock size 5. Rear electric locker. I also disconnected the front sway bar and cut the front bumper for more clearence. Thats the best in my opinion. If you wanna go more crazy so go for a 3" lift, even 4", but have a negative offset rims and/or wheel spacers for a wider stance, the jimny is tall already. Also add longer brake lines. Front locker, and bigger (I'd say no more than 215 on stock internals). That will take you even more anywhere than before :D Enjoy and drive safe!

I mean my own car is an old Volvo and after like 1200km trip with 1 stop to refuel, i didnt even know Ive been sitting in a car. 100km trip in a duster seats and i wanted to die so my back doesnt hurt anymore. Come on its 2022 even the cheapest car can have a decent seats. And if you cant designe them, just bloody copy them out of some old premium car, nobody will care...

    Being a car from 1977 the Niva is doing a great job with a 40+ year old 4x4 system. The Duster shows how good a car Renault can build ( in some countries the Duster is a Renault) just being a road car with the optional 4 wheel drive and is really impressive. The Jimmy is just on a different level.

    Take em on the road and the Duster smokes the other two. It's the biggest, the most practical, the easiest to get hold of, the fastest, the most powerful, the most luxurious (if you can use that word about a Dacia) and the most comfortable...and still pretty capable off road. For £20k.

  163. Si Raff

    Si Raff5 أيام قبل

    @Mark Heywood Its just not which is obvious if you bother looking at the price lists of most. They are all within a small amount of each other spec for spec unless you go for the usual overpriced ones. Even then as I pointed out that's list price. go on carwow and get offers on a few and you'll soon see how skewed that low base price is. Its even worse on pcp where a lot of others are actually cheaper.

    @Si Raff Confirmation bias. A spec'd up Duster is still significantly cheaper than any other family SUV and you know it.

    Si Raff5 أيام قبل

    @Mark Heywood It is clearly the worst offroad by a long way. Even with a massive run up at the last obstacle thanks to the team obviously not wanting to pee on Renaults chips by allowing an ancient Lada to beat it. Again if you're claiming vat back its quite a lot more expensive than either - £3k more than the Jimny and £5k more than the Lada. As for price matching - you're on a carwow video. Go on there and do it yourself. Dacia deals are almost nothing while a lot of others offer lots off, good finance, great pcp (thanks to higher resale) and so on. Its actually hard to find another similar car with so little base equipment and only the base model is cheap. Most other base models are already more equipped than a Dacia with a few option boxes ticked and a much higher price than that attractive starting point.

  166. Cacklamity

    @Mark Heywood It would be my choice if I was after a family SUV with some decent off-road capability, but it really can't hold a candle to the Jimny off-road, which is kind of the point, its a 4x4 designed primarily for that purpose.

  167. Mark Heywood

    Mark Heywood5 أيام قبل

    @Si Raff Nope. It's not the worst off road. It's the same price as the Jimny, which is a van...and only slightly more expensive than a 45 year old Lada. Odd that you like to talk about old Renaults but don't mention the Lada's age. Spec for spec, name another AWD family SUV that is the same price? I'm not saying it's the best car in the world. But it's by far the best of these three and fantastic value in general.

    Shadman Sudipto4 أيام قبل

    @Silimarina a locked wheel reduces stopping power on termac because static friction is higher between the same surfaces than sliding friction. However, there is no static friction on a loose surface so not locking does not make you stop quicker. If you don't believe the physics, check out team O'Neil's video where they test it. (edit: ) Also kinda ironic you accuse me of not knowing what I'm talking about LOL. Be respectful next time. Insulting only makes you look like an idiot. Edit: old audis also used to have an ABS off button and the owners manual said it's for gravel and snow. Look it up.

  226. Jake warren

    Jake warren5 أيام قبل

    @Silimarina And on loose surfaces the locked wheels can build up debri/dirt/sand in front of the tyre increasing its stopping power over the grip available with ABS. Go and drive your ABS car on a gravel road and see for yourself, it will take for ever to stop. Pull the ABS fuse and try again, it will lock up and be fairly uncontrollable, however it will stop a shit load quicker.

  227. Silimarina

    No it doesn't! You clearly don't know what you are talking about. Looking up the wheels means it has surpassed the grip level of the tires. ABS actually keeps the wheels at the limit of tire grip.

    Niva is the first SUV in the World. It is on the conveyor since 1974 almost unchanged.

    @Johnny Utah still, better to get used, but safe car, this lada has a spare wheel that will cut your head of in case of incident.

    @Stas Yermakov it costs way less in Russia, like 7-10 k new

    It is retro the design was probably thought out in the 1970's

    To be fair, the duster is by far the best all rounder. Was going to trade my 2018 Passat for a 2022 duster last week, couldn't do it. Duster just so cheap and nasty compared to Passat, really is a budget car

    I don´t care, I like the Jimny. So nice ... But for hard jobs, Duster or Niva, and for only off road and learning mechanics ... Niva. Damage in the Niva gives caracter, in the Jimny hurts. Love the Jimny.

    That Duster did impressively well for a car that’s really a soft roader…I’d have one as an everyday car 👍🏻

    Jimny all day long for me if I needed something affordable for off road and I love the chunky looks. On road I'm sure the Duster would be more comfortable, but I'd still take the wee Jimny. 😁💙👍

    I have a lada niva and both of them I have left behind off the road .... one thing I know is that I do not go off the road without the appropriate tires and in this video the tires of all three cars were asphalt. in suzuki I think the tire he was wearing was more off-road than the other two

    For all those commenting about safety, the Jimny and Duster both have 3 euro ncap stars, with the Jimny scoring slightly higher in most individual categories. I’m sure the niva is a train wreck.

    The whole point of the Lada is that you can fix it with chewing gum and it'll keep going for a million miles... Not that it offroads quick.
