Dacia plans new budget car

The Romanian based automaker Dacia is planning to introduce a new budget car, which will also be the smallest one produced at Mioveni, currently.

Dacia will be expanding its lineup with a brand new model, which will be a small city car developed and assembled in the company’s local market. The announcement hasn’t been made official by Dacia just yet, but according to a report posted by Autobild, the model in question will actually be based on the new generation of the Renault Twingo and it should carry a starting price of just 5,000 euros (6,965 USD / 4,175 GBP), making it the most affordable petrol burner on the Old Continent.

The new Dacia model is believed to be equipped with the rear-wheel drive, found on the new Renault Twingo generation, as this is supposed to ride on the same platform as its French cousin. The Twingo is offering a 0.9 liter three-cylinder turbocharged TCe engine, with 90 HP (66 kW) and 135 Nm (100 lb-ft) of torque, and it can also come with a 1.0 liter three-cylinder SCe 70, generating 70 HP (51 kW) and 91 Nm (67 lb-ft) of torque. It’s not sure right now what engine the Dacia model will be using.
