The novelties are in line for the popular Sandero and Sandero Stepway hatchbacks, the new Jogger crossover station wagon, and the base Logan sedan, all offering "their customers a little novelty and comfort."
The Dacia story – the automaker, not the historic province – began in 1966, but it's nothing to remember or write home about unless you're an avid fan of communist-era memorabilia. Instead, the most crucial element is the continued relationship between Dacia and Renault, which culminated 33 years later, in 1999, when the French group overtook the Romanian automaker.

After that, the first product they launched was the original Logan – or the so-called €5k automobile promised by the Renault leadership. Its price wasn't consistent with the promises, but everything else was spot-on, and the company started its ascension toward the normalcy of a European automobile producer. Twenty-five years later, Dacia is one of the most beloved brands on the Old Continent thanks to its no-frills approach to the automotive industry and some of its most popular models like the Sandero hatchback or the Duster crossover SUV.

The latter is all new and almost ready to roll across its intended markets with its third generation sporting the Renault-Nissan CMF-B architecture, a rugged, boxier, and adventurous design, a more prestigious and tech-savvy interior, plus gasoline-only engines in Europe, including an LPG-compatible unit, a mild-hybrid, and a full hybrid.

However, Dacia is adamant that its Duster shouldn't take over entirely and has recently announced a slew of updates for its other models. The Logan is the best-selling car at home in Romania and third in Morocco; the Sandero is the second best-selling car in Europe in 2023 behind Tesla's Model Y, while the fresh Jogger has already passed the 100k-delivery milestone and is the most popular non-SUV C-segment nameplate on the Old Continent.

Interestingly, Dacia has used the occasion of aligning to the latest Global Safety Regulation outlines (GSR II) for Europe to propose a bundle of upgrades for the Sandero, Sandero Stepway, Jogger, and Logan, including new wheel designs (two tones are available), a fresh Sandero Journey trim, additional body colors like Safari Beige (exclusive to Sandero Stepway) or Shale Grey plus Cedar Green, new decals, and a big tech upgrade for the Jogger. More precisely, its Hybrid 140 version now has the 7-inch digital instrument cluster from Duster III.

As for the SGR II measures, the models available for order since April 2024 will feature new safety equipment like an Accident Event Data Recorder, Advanced emergency braking system (pedestrian & cyclist), Lane Departure Warning System, Lane Keeping Assist, Traffic sign recognition with speed alert, Emergency Stop Signal, and more. There are also some new creature comforts like Rear Parking Assist or Light & Rain sensors plus USB-C ports.
