Dacia Sandero Stepway Goes Live in France

Renault has just announced that Dacia Sandero Stepway will be rolled out in France, with order books to open on July 15. Officially debuted during two simultaneous events at the Barcelona Motor Show and at the L'Atelier Renault showroom in Paris, Dacia Sandero Stepway will go on sale in France in a single engine configuration, namely a dCi 70 diesel unit that produces only 140 grams of CO2 per kilometer.

When it will reach French dealerships, the Sandero Stepway will cost 11,900 euros, with the car qualifying for French state's 1,000 euro rebate for buyers who agree to trade-in an at least 10-year old vehicle. There are three body colors available: Platine Grey, Comete Grey and Feu Red.

The car is produced at Dacia's plant in Pitesti, Romania, with more than five percent of the plastics used for its parts being sourced from recycling, as Renault said in a release.

As for the features, the Stepway comes as standard with the following: defrosting rear screen and rear windscreen wiper, tinted glass, driver front airbag, front passenger front airbag, ABS and EBA, three three-point inertia-reel rear seatbelts, three rear headrests, central locking and power steering.

Additionally, the car comes with front electric windows, manual climate control, radio CD with MP3 playback, 16-inch aluminum alloy wheels, chrome-finish grille trim, foglamps, Stone Grey interior trim, black upholstery with visible white stitching.

In other markets, the Stepway will be offered in two engine configurations: a 1.6-liter petrol unit developing 90 horsepower and a dCI 70 diesel powerplant. To give you an idea, the Stepway is capable of achieving a fuel consumption rating of 7.6 l/100 km (30.9 mpg) for the gasoline and 5.3 l/100 km (44.3 mpg) for the diesel.
