Dacia Techroad limited editions start at £11,660
Prices for the limited-edition Dacia Duster, Sandero Stepway and Logan MCV Stepway models have been announced
Dacia has revealed the prices of its new limited-edition Techroad models, which are available to order now until the end of the year. The new range-topping trim level is available on the Duster SUV, the Logan MCV Stepway estate and the entry-level Sandero Stepway hatchback. Prices start at £11,660 for the Sandero Stepway, with first deliveries due to be made in April.
Techroad models are offered with a choice of two new paint colours called Fusion Red and Highland Grey. Whichever colour you go for, all Techroad cars feature red centre caps on the alloy wheels and red decorative elements on the bodywork and wing mirrors. The Sandero Stepway and Logan MCV Stepway feature new 16-inch two-tone wheel trims, while the Duster offers diamond-cut 17-inch alloy wheels.
The red accents continue inside; you’ll find them everywhere from the air vent surrounds to the door panels and floor mats. The seats are also finished in a special grey and red upholstery that’s only available with Techroad models.
All Techroad cars feature rear parking sensors as standard, but the Duster seems to have gained the most kit. It also has a hands-free key card, blind-spot monitoring, multiple cameras and Dacia’s latest MediaNav infotainment system, which is compatible with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The Sandero Stepway hatchback starts at £11,660 in Techroad form, which is £660 more than the equivalent Comfort spec. The Logan MCV Stepway Techroad costs £13,160, a £665 premium over the Comfort trim level, while the range-topping Dacia Duster Techroad is £16,360, an increase of £660 over the Prestige trim level.
Dacia offers the Sandero Stepway with a 0.9-litre three-cylinder petrol engine, which is capable of up to 45.6mpg under the WLTP cycle while emitting 127g/km of CO2. The Dacia Logan MCV Stepway can be specced with the same 0.9-litre petrol engine, giving it matching fuel economy of 45.6 mpg and CO2 emissions of 125g/km. The Logan MCV Stepway is also available with a Blue dCi 95 diesel engine that can return a claimed 62.7mpg and CO2 emissions of 103g/km.
The Techroad Duster is available with a 113bhp Blue dCi diesel engine, which returns 57.6 mpg and CO2 emissions of 115g/km. This engine can also be specced with four-wheel drive, with economy dropping to 48.7 mpg but CO2 emissions remaining the same. A 1.3-litre petrol engine is also available but only with front-wheel drive. Buyers can choose a 128bhp or 148bhp version of this engine, with both returning the same 41.5mpg and CO2 emissions of 137g/km.
