Facelifted Dacia line-up on sale now
Dacia has launched its facelifted UK line-up, which sees the Sandero, Sandero Stepway and Logan MCV all gain new styling and equipment upgrades.
Unveiled at the Paris Motor Show, the latest models gain a new front-end design with double optic front headlights, as seen on the facelifted Duster launched earlier this year, and LED Daytime Running Lights as standard. There’s also a brand-new grille with a honeycomb design and updated bumper with more prominent fog lights.
At the rear, the Sandero and Sandero Stepway gain a new lighting signature along with a chromed exhaust tailpipe for the Sandero Stepway. Interior updates bring new finishes and detailing plus the addition of a 12-volt power socket.
Under the bonnet, the Sandero and Logan MCV now offer a new SCe 75 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol, bringing the same power as the outgoing 1.2-litre 16V 75, but with efficiency gains of up to 10%. CO2 and economy figures for the new engine stand at 117g/km and 54.3mpg combined for the Sandero and 120g/km and 52.3mpg for the Logan MCV. The previous TCe 90 petrol and dCi 90 diesel engines are also available across the revised range.
Trim levels are carried over and see the Sandero and Logan MCV available in Access, Ambiance and Lauréate specification, while the Sandero Stepway is offered in Ambiance or Lauréate trim.
Equipment upgrades include DAB radio on all three models except for the Access trim. Air conditioning is now standard on Ambiance versions and above.
Top-of-the-range Lauréate versions now include the MediaNav navigation system, incorporating a seven-inch touchscreen, AUX input, radio and USB and Bluetooth connectivity, and rear parking sensors as standard. A reversing camera and Hill Start Assist are available.
Dacia has also reported an increase in residual values of up to 5.8% for the facelifted models as a result of the revised specification and styling.
The facelifted Dacia range is available to order now. The new Sandero is priced from £5,995, with the new Sandero Stepway from £8,795 and Logan MCV from £6,995.
