    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'm pretty impressed by the Duster, considering it's not generally bought to go offroad

You know Mat, in a Niva there's a brake in the middle of pedals. If you push it, a car won't move when you push a clutch.

The three are inexpensive, highly functional and fun. Thanks to the company that made this.

Love this, personally I’d have the duster as a daily out of the 3.

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.

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).

I think the Jimny would have won the second challenge if the driver had taken a more aggressive approach.

To me Duster, as an end user seems the best...if Mat would have know how to actually drive offroad 😁, Duster would have been 1st or equal to Jimmny in this challenge.

I am loving this! What an awesome test! I'd take the Lada, every day 👌

I love the Lada. All parts are between 2$ and 200$ and easy to swap

Between these 3, I would always go for the Duster, although the Jimmny always has my ♥ 😍

I'd go for the duster, it's good enough offroad and better onroad than the other 2...btw i believe the duster does have a center locking diff, in fact is a true mechanical locker unlike most SUVS...

Hey Mat, would love to see how the land cruiser 300 stacks up against the other cars in an off road race.

I had a Ladas Niva around 1996. Amazing the sort of things you could do with that car on a farm going through the creek down the back. Water came in the cabin up to the top of the seat - not waterproof. Had to reverse out of that one.

The fact that the Duster can be used as a family or everyday car just ends the comparison

I'm way more excited for this competition than any Mercedes - Audi - Tesla and whatever other expensive car offroad-race

Couldn’t count the amount of 4x4 dusters I seen in Switzerland the last time I was there in winter. Seemed everyone parked their expensive cars because of the snow and drove dusters 😂

Would be really interesting to see how an Ignis or a Vitara go round the 4x4 test track.

Technically, Duster (as well as tons of modern SUVs) has part-time AWD with lock between axles by dedicated clutch when rear wheels connected and no lock when disconnected. And it happens many times per second if needed. 😀
