Dacia Sandero Stepway Officially Released




This is nothing else but a Sandero with bumpers and a high ground clearance. I have doubts that we shall see another SUV based on Dacia Duster. The Alliance has already Nissan Qashqai and Renault Koleos. Anyway, being a low cost car, could have good sales, as Dacia has these days.It's true, this is not related to the previously announced Dacia SUV. This is just a cross-over of the Sandero, following a common trend in it's class set by the VW Cross-Polo, Skoda Fabia Scout or Rover Streetwise. Hopefully Renault will keep their promise and deliver a low cost Dacia branded SUV based on the Qashqai...



No news here. As mentioned, this car has been on sale in South America for a year. I've even sat in one. And it isn't news that this is the first SUV-type car from the brand rather than the Duster because, as stated, this has been around for a year whereas the Duster concept debuted at Geneva, some time after the Stepway was being marketed.
Sandero (branded as a Dacia in Eastern Europe) has been quite successful in Brazil, with 18,500 units sold in the first half of this year alone. The Stepway has a 1.6-litre 112 bhp 16 valve engine, the Hi-Flex one with bio-ethanol abilities. At 112 ponies it is Renault’s most powerful bio-ethanol powerplant in Brazil. Sandero will be popular because of its interesting styling, as well as higher ride height that makes drivers feel on top of the traffic situation. This should increase its popularity with the females then. With Stepway you also get chrome-finished pipe, exclusive bumpers and grille and roof bars with an integrated spoiler.
