Paris Motor Show LIVE: new Dacia Sandero Stepway is one SUV look-alike

The third and final world premiere hosted by Dacia’s booth at the Paris Motor Show is the new Sandero Stepway.

Based on the Sandero hatchback, the Stepway has a raised ground clearance: 40 mm higher than Sandero in Western Europe and 26 mm higher in countries with raised suspension systems such as Romania.

The Sandero Stepway has a muscular look that is set to appeal to a broad base of customers. The previous generation of the Stepway accounted for half of total sales of the Sandero series. The new Stepway has a redesigned front end and special body features, including front and rear skid plates, fog lamps, two-tone bumper, pronounced wheel arches, 16-inch Flexwheels rims, two-tone lengthwise roof bars, and exclusive Azurite blue paint.

On the inside, the new Sandero Stepway gets specially-embroidered upholstery and grey overstitching for a bolder look. The new model will now be available in two versions: an entry-level model, for access to the Stepway look, and a fully-equipped model featuring the MEDIA NAV multimedia system, air conditioning, cruise control/speed limiter, and a reversing sensor.

With its raised ground clearance, front and rear skid plates and mud flaps, the new Sandero Stepway keeps all of its off-road qualities. The Stepway will only be available with the most powerful engines from the Logan/Sandero range, the TCe 90 3-cylinder turbocharged gasoline unit and the dCi 90 diesel engine.

Equipped with the TCe 90, the new Sandero Stepway consumes 5.4 l/100 km for CO2 emissions of 125 g/km. The dCi 90 version bears the Dacia eco² signature in recognition of its low consumption (4.0
l/100 km) and emission (105 g/km) rates over a combined cycle.

In Romania, the new Sandero Stepway is priced from 10,800 euros (10,590 euros in France), with orders starting on October 1.
