Dacia Sandero will receive this fall some deserved aesthetic changes, first received by the smallest model produced by the Romanian car manufacturer. The photos presented by the French publication L’Automobile Magazine should have been released by Dacia at the Auto Show in Paris this month.
At the aesthetic level, the new Dacia Sandero 2 is characterized by a completely new front side in line with what we saw today on the new Logan 2. The headlights are completely changed, and the round lines of the previous model are replaced by some angular and simple ones, that seem a stylistic evolution in Dacia models over the years. At the rear, the new Sandero 2 – which is slightly shorter than the model it replaces – comes with taillights reminding of those of VW Polo, BMW 1 Series or the new Mercedes A-Class, and bring a radical change from the previous model.
Some interesting changes are on the interior, where the new Dacia Sandero 2 has aesthetic improvements that bring it closer to 2012 in terms of lines, technology and materials. Thus, even if remains with a simple and easy to understand dashboard, the new Sandero will have in the center the new multimedia display inaugurated by the Lodgy. Obviously, it will be available for a fee – about 300 euros – same as on the Lodgy – but it is not a huge price if you are looking for a more coherent, more pleasant visually and – obviously – much more useful dashboard. Another interesting element is the steering wheel cruise control system but the buttons for the electric windows are placed in the same place: the central tunnel between the seats.
Dacia Sandero 2 comes with innovations not only on the aesthetic level, but also in terms of technology. According to the French journalists, the new Sandero will be powered by a new engine – the new Renault TCe turbocharged 0.9-liter and 90 HP engines – used so far on the new Twingo and Clio models. The engine has three cylinders and is a very interesting alternative for those who avoided Dacia because of its outdated engines. Obviously, the classic Dacia engines – 75 HP petrol engine and the 75 HP and 90 HP diesel engines – will also be available in order to ensure the model Dacia model will have an accessible price.
