Foreign journalists captured a heavily camouflaged prototype of the Romanian urban hatchback Dacia Sandero we have in the country sold under the brand Renault. The car will present next year.
A few moments ago, at the disposal of our publications were “spy” photos of a heavily camouflaged prototype of the Romanian news and I must say that at this stage you can see that the exterior of the car began to look much better.
It seems that the car will receive absolutely new body panels, but also completely redesigned the headlights and taillights. Upon closer examination, we also note that the old door handles, and fuel cap has a rather interesting shape. The shape of the rear doors has also been modified.
This blue wire sticking out of the hood, most likely connected to the measuring instrument in the cabin –cable enters through a crack in the passenger door. Seen on the prototype with a temporary exhaust system – maybe the Dacia engineers were testing a new engine for his small hatchback.
We do not yet have interior photos of the new Dacia/Renault Sandero, but in some pictures you can see the screen of the infotainment system in the form of a tablet, which sticks out of the center console.
Renault, Dacia’s parent company, has announced that an updated version of the Sandero will move from a legacy platform B0 on the architecture of CMF-B.
We expect that the new Sandero will be equipped with three-cylinder 1.0-liter naturally aspirated engine of 65 HP (95 Nm) and 72 HP (95 Nm). A more powerful 1.0-liter turbo engine will offer 100 HP of power and 160 Nm of torque. Also you can choose the 1.5 liter dCi diesel with 85 HP (220 Nm) and 115 HP (260 Nm). As transmissions will be offered a 5-speed or 6-speed manual transmission. It is possible that customers will also be available 7-speed “automatic”.
Presentation of the updated hatchback Dacia Sandero and Logan sedan will take place in 2020 at the Geneva motor show in early March or in late September in Paris.
