Dacia has introduced facelifted versions of three existing models just in time for the 2016 Paris auto expo.
The revamped models are the Sandera, Stepway and the Logan.
The updated version of the cars is quite similar to the next gen 2016 Duster. Almost all the features found in the new Duster has been carried forward to these three new variants. It includes LED running lights, redesigned front bumper, grille with lower air vents. The rear lights are modified. All these changes are exactly the same in the three cars and they have been modified so as to match them with the SUV.
As expected, the interior of the cars has been revised with new materials, better dashboard arrangement and features that buyers would look for. The ergonomics of the seats and the center console is improved for a comfortable ride. While the previous version of the Sandero, Stepway and Logan were comfortable, there were some minor tweaks that would have made them even better. Dacia has identified those minor ergonomic changes which gives a new look to the car and ensures a better ride.
The automobile brand has not released any images of the interior yet but they have confirmed that there will be some surprise additions to the variants. They are quite subtle yet packs in much needed features that would make the ride fun for both the driver and the passengers. Dacia has not revealed any details of the powertrains they have used in the Sandera or the other two models.
Based on the new Duster which is powered by a 1.2-liter turbo petrol engine, we anticipate that the three new cars will feature tweaked version of the same engine. The current generation Sandero, Stepway and Logan uses 1.2-liter, 0.9-liter turbo petrol along with a 1.5-liter diesel engine.
While the output generated by these powertrains will not vary drastically, the engineers will probably tweak them to make the engines more fuel efficient and deliver increased horsepower. After all, the range of Dacia cars that are heading to the 2016 Paris auto expo is not going to compete against a Land Rover or a Ferrari. They are geared towards the average buyer who loves to enjoy a hassle free, inexpensive car that is packed with everyday features to make life easier.
Once the expo goes on floor, we will be able to see these cars on display and know more about the powertrains used in them.
