Surprisingly, the cheapest car to run in the UK is not a tiny city car or a simple supermini, it is an SUV – the Dacia Duster. The Duster comes with a certain amount of rugged charm to its driving experience, which some drivers love and that desirability helps prop-up its residual values. Lavished with sophistication it is not, but peel back the bodywork and underneath you will find an impressive car.
