First captured the prototype of the new Dacia Sandero

Journalists captured a strongly camouflaged prototype of the Romanian city hatchback Dacia Sandero, which is sold under the Renault brand in our country. The car will be presented next year.

A couple of minutes ago, at the disposal of our publication were “spy” photos of a strongly camouflaged prototype of a Romanian novelty, and I must say that already at this stage you can see that the exterior of the car began to look much better.

It seems that the car will receive not only completely new body panels, but also completely redone headlights and taillights. On closer inspection, we will also notice that there are no more old door handles, and the fuel tank cap has a rather interesting shape. The shape of the tailgate has also been changed.

  This blue wire sticking out of the hood is most likely connected to a measuring tool in the passenger compartment — the cable passes in through the slot in the passenger door. The prototype seen has a temporary exhaust system installed – perhaps Dacia engineers tested a new engine for their small hatchback.

  We do not yet have photos of the interior 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 that sticks out from the center console.

  Renault, the parent company of Dacia, has already announced that the updated version of Sandero will switch from the obsolete B0 platform to the CMF-B architecture.

  We expect the new Sandero to be powered by a 65-hp three-cylinder 1.0-liter naturally aspirated engine (95 Nm) and 72 hp (95 Nm). A more powerful 1.0-liter turbo engine will offer 100 hp and 160 Nm of torque. You can also choose a 1.5-liter dCi diesel with 85 hp (220 Nm) and 115 hp (260 Nm). As a transmission, a 5-speed or 6-speed manual transmission will be offered. It is possible that customers will also be available 7-speed automatic gearbox.

  Presentation of the updated hatchback Dacia Sandero, as well as the Logan sedan will be held in 2020 at the Geneva Motor Show in early March or late September in Paris.

Not so long ago, our publication wrote that the Dacia Duster in August became the most popular crossover in Europe. But in the team event, this SUV managed to rise to second place in the list of the most beloved models of Europeans, losing to the Volkswagen Golf.
