Paris Motor Show LIVE: Dacia Dokker Stepway image

Renault’s affordable brand Dacia has taken the necessary steps to introduce at the 2014 Paris Motor Show the crossover-inspired Dokker Stepway version.

Together with the Lodgy Stepway, the Dokker Stepway comes to compliment the very successful Sandero Stepway rugged version, featuring extensive styling changes that give the model a very rugged appearance. We have body-color front bumpers, satin-chrome front and rear skidplates, front fog lamps with satin chrome surrounds, black wheel arch protection and 16-inch alloy wheels in dark metal finish. The interior has been modified with Stepway special upholstery with embroidery and blue topstitching. There’s also a Dark Carbon interior design scheme, coupled with dials and air vents in a blue tone that can also be found on the central instrument cluster. The model also features additional equipment options: the touchscreen Media Nav multimedia and navigation system, air conditioning, a speed limiter/cruise control system and new net storage pockets in the rear.

Just like the Lodgy Stepway, the Dokker Stepway has two engine choices – a petrol and a diesel. The TCe unit with 115 hp is mated to a five-speed manual gearbox and has an average consumption of 5.8 l/100 km, with CO2 emissions of 135 g/km. The diesel option comes with 90 hp from the 1.5 dCi sourced from Renault, and in this version the Dokker needs just 4.5 l/100 km and emits 118 g/km of CO2.
