The Renault Sandero is quite a hit locally and since its launch in 2009, more than 46 000 Sandero models have found homes in South Africa. Renault has updated its popular Sandero and Sandero Stepway hatchback and it’s now available in South Africa.
Key design features
The exterior changes include a new grille, bumpers and air vent design. The C-shaped LED daytime running lights, headlights and C-shaped taillights are also newly designed. The Sandero Stepway gains additional features such as a raised ground clearance, integrated roof spoiler, roof bars, front and rear skid plates, wheel arch mouldings and front fog lights. The Sandero rides on 15-inch wheels as standard while the Stepway is fitted with -16-inch dark metal flex wheels.
Perceived interior quality has improved with upgraded materials and the Sandero now features a new centre console, newly designed air vents, updated trims and seat upholstery and power window switches found on the door panels.
Ergonomic enhancements include a new steering wheel with the hooter in the middle and one-touch indicators. Renault claims luggage space as best-in-class with 292 litres on offer and the rear seats are split for added practicality. An armrest and leather seats (optional) are offered on the Sandero Stepway Dynamique derivative.
Renault has revised its Sandero offering by doing away with the Sandero Dynamique derivative and has instead added a new mid-spec Stepway Expression derivative to the lineup. The range is headlined by the Stepway Dynamique derivative. The entry-level Sandero Expression still remains but now gets air conditioning as standard.
All derivatives are powered by the same 900 cc turbopetrol engine offering 66 kW and 135 Nm of torque. Power is sent to the front wheels using a 5-speed manual transmission. Renault claims a fuel consumption figure of 5.2 L/100 km for the Sandero Expression while the Sandero Stepway derivatives are claimed to consume 5.4 L/100km.
Standard features include front electric windows, remote central locking and ECO mode for optimising fuel consumption.
The Stepway Dynamique derivative gains front and rear electric windows and side mirrors, leather steering wheel and gear lever, rear park assist, cruise control and navigation.
Additional features such as Bluetooth and a radio/CD player with USB port are also offered.
Safety features include ABS with EBD, Emergency Brake Assist and Electronic Stability Program with Traction Control. Hill Start Assist is also included and a total of 2 airbags are standard while the Stepway Dynamique gains additional side airbags.
