Tricky to import a petrol Dacia Duster?

I'm interested in a new Dacia Duster, but petrol not diesel. Dacia Ireland doesn't offer the petrol model, so I'm contemplating a new UK petrol Duster imported by me. I'm aware of the import process, but are there any likely problems? I'm especially thinking about insurance issues if it's a model not routinely sold in Ireland and also the VRT valuation process for a model not usually available here.

Any thoughts, please?

Hi Paul,


It depends. If it’s the basic 1.6-litre petrol model, then your VRT will be around €3,000 (ish, depending on spec) and that model already appears on Revenue’s system. If it’s the more expensive version with the 1.2-litre petrol turbo, then it’s trickier as, you’re quite right, Revenue doesn’t have that automobile on its systems.

I would think they’ll hit you up for around €4-5,000 in VRT for one of those. The process isn’t too difficult, as such, but if you don’t fancy it, the new, updated Dacia Duster will be launching next year, and that should finally come with a petrol engine option here.
