New Sandero

Dacia has refreshed its offer in the compact car segment with the All-New Sandero and Stepway.

The third generation models offer simple, spacious, reliable and robust vehicles with no unnecessary frills, at the most competitive price.

The Sandero has been a best-selling car in Europe since 2017 and Dacia’s best-selling model with almost 2.1 million cars sold. Sales in Ireland exceed 9,500 since the model was launched in 2013.

New Sandero Stepway

The more crossover styled Stepway has sold more than 1.3 million cars globally, and has been the Sandero model of choice for the majority of Irish customers, accounting for over 60% of Sandero sales here.

Dimensions haven’t changed. There are increased active and passive safety features, new engines that include petrol and LPG Bi-Fuel. There is a new automatic transmission and all-new six-speed manual gearbox. The full engine line-up includes: SCe 65: a naturally aspirated 1.0-litre three-cylinder engine paired with a five-speed manual transmission. Available on Sandero only. TCe 90: a turbocharged 1.0-litre three-cylinder unit paired with a six-speed manual transmission or CVT automatic transmission and a TCe 100 Bi-Fuel: a new LPG bi-fuelled turbocharged 1.0-litre three-cylinder unit paired with a six-speed manual transmission.

Dacia says: The All-New Sandero and Stepway continue to give customers greater access than ever before to the best value-for-money cars on the market.
