New engines for Dacia Sandero Stepway announced

Dacia’s best-selling model gains two new engines and updated trim levels for 2019

New for the Dacia Sandero Stepway in 2019 is a pair of Renault engines – one petrol and one diesel – offering greater choice for buyers of Dacia’s best-selling model in the UK. At the same time, Dacia has upgraded the equipment offered with the Stepway’s two trim levels, Essential and Comfort.

The entry-level model, the new SCe 75, is only available in the basic Essential trim configuration and has a 1.0-litre naturally aspirated three-cylinder engine developing 74bhp. It has a claimed 0-62 time of 16.7 seconds with fuel economy of between 43.5 and 45.6mpg under the new WLTP guidelines, along with CO2 emissions of 124g/km. Prices for the TCe 75 model start at £8,995.

The second new model, the Blue dCi 95, comes with a 1.5-litre four-cylinder diesel engine that develops 94bhp with a 0-62mph time of 12.3 seconds and a top speed of 111mph. It is significantly more frugal than petrol versions of the Stepway, offering 58.8 to 62.7mpg and CO2 emissions of just 103g/km. It will be available in Essential and Comfort trims with prices of £11,595 and £12,595 respectively.

Continuing alongside these two new models is the Sandero Stepway TCe 90 with a turbocharged 0.9-litre three-cylinder engine developing 89bhp with an 11.1-second 0-62mph time. Under the new WLTP emissions standard, which came in on 1 January, it returns 42.2 to 45.6mpg with CO2 emissions of 127g/km. The TCe 90 sits between the two new models with prices starting from £9,995.

Along with the new engine range, Dacia has upgraded the trim levels for the Sandero Stepway. The entry-level Access model has been dropped, with the base model now being the Essential. It features a DAB radio, Bluetooth, electric front windows, air conditioning and 16-inch wheels.

The range-topping model is the Comfort, which adds a touchscreen ‘MediaNav’ system with sat nav and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality, along with cruise control, rear parking sensors and electric rear windows.

The new Stepway models are available to order now with first deliveries scheduled for February 2019.
