The limited-edition Dacia Sandero Black Touch
The limited-edition Black Touch version of Dacia’s compact Sandero hatchback delivers styling embellishments and an equipment upgrade.
The Black Touch limited-edition version of Sandero is based on the model’s Lauréate equipment level and can be ordered in metallic Comète Grey, along with a choice of seven other finishes.
The Sandero Black Touch sits on new 15-inch alloy wheels and comes with pearlescent black door mirror housings and B-pillar trims for added distinction and refinement.
The interior of the limited-edition Sandero Black Touch features pearlescent black interior appointments, such as the central fascia surround, steering wheel trim and door grab handles which contrast elegantly with the chrome door handles themselves.
To be sure that the Sandero Black Touch is just as at home in built-up areas as it is in the open countryside, standard equipment includes the MEDIA NAV multimedia and navigation system complete with touch screen display, plus cruise control with speed limiter and climate control.
The limited-edition Sandero Black Touch can be ordered with one of three engines (two petrol and one diesel).
The TCe 90 petrol engine combines driving pleasure with contained fuel consumption (5 litres/100km) and low CO2 emissions (116 g/km). Alternatively, the Sandero Black Touch can also be specified with the 1.2 16V 75 petrol engine which returns fuel consumption of 5.8 litres/100km and emits 135g of CO2/km.
The diesel version of the Sandero Black Touch is powered by the dCi 90 engine, the combined-cycle fuel consumption of which figures among the lowest in its segment, namely 3.8 litres/100km, equivalent to 99g of CO2/km.
The limited-edition Dacia Duster Air
Following the renewal of the Duster line-up last autumn, and in a similar vein to the limited-edition Aventure version of the model that was revealed at the Geneva Motor Show in 2013, Dacia is to introduce the limited-edition Duster Air which will be available with either two- or four- wheel transmission.
While the Duster Aventure focused on the car’s adventurer spirit and all-terrain ability, the Duster Air takes its inspiration from the world of aviation and pilots.
Thanks to its Imperial Yellow door mirror housings and ‘altimeter’ graphic on the boot, body sides and tailgate, the Duster Air strands out through its distinctive chic yet vibrant stance. This impression is heightened by its 16-inch Dark Metal alloy wheels, satin-finish chrome-effect sills and front/rear skid plates, extra-tinted rear glass and chrome exhaust tail pipe which are unmistakable hallmarks of the Duster’s adventurer pedigree.
The limited-edition Duster Air is based on the model’s Lauréate version and can be specified in one of four finishes, namely Platine Grey, Pearlescent Black, Comète Grey and Glacier White.
The smartly-appointed interior features exclusive upholstery complete with embroidered motifs and visible stitching, as well as a number of black highlights for items like the central fascia surround, door grab handles and steering wheel trim.
The same ‘altimeter’ graphic as the exterior has been carried over to the seat backs and is also used for the steering wheel trim motif. The cabin floor is protected by textile carpet mats.
The limited-edition Duster Air can be ordered with either petrol or diesel power. The petrol version of the car is equipped with the TCe 125 powerplant (two-wheel drive versions only). In addition to its performance credentials, it is economical to run, with low running costs and fuel consumption of just 6.3 litres/100km, equivalent to CO2 emissions of 145g/km.
The diesel version features the dCi 110 engine which is available with both two- and four-wheel transmission. Driving pleasure is ensured by the dCi 110’s crisp mid-range response and sprightly acceleration which is enhanced by its manual six-speed gearbox. The combined cycle CO2 emissions of the two-wheel drive version are 127g/km (4×4 version: 135g/km). Combined cycle fuel consumption for the two-wheel version is 4.8 litres/100km (4×4 version: 5.2 litres/100km).
Dacia is extending the Stepway offering already available on Sandero to include Lodgy and Dokker
Lodgy Stepway and Dokker Stepway, go-anywhere versions of the minivan and leisure activity vehicle
The new Stepway versions of Lodgy and Dokker boast a muscular look and powerful personality inspired by crossover vehicles.
Lodgy Stepway and Dokker Stepway are available in five body paint including the Azurite blue body paint (exclusive for Stepway versions) with a “Stepway” decal on the front doors. Following in the footsteps of Sandero Stepway, both models boast assertive and adventuresome styling.
Lodgy Stepway and Dokker Stepway feature special upholstery with embroidery and blue topstitching.
The dials and air vents are circled in the same blue tone to be found on the central instrument cluster. The colour contrasts perfectly with the Dark Carbon interior design scheme, further underscoring the vitality of the new Stepway models.
Expanding the existing range, Lodgy Stepway and Dokker Stepway versions ship with a wide range of equipment (standard or optional), including: the touchscreen Media Nav multimedia and navigation system, air conditioning, a speed limiter/cruise control system and a reversing radar. And for even more everyday practicality, both trim levels come with new net storage pockets in the rear.
Lodgy Stepway is available with the petrol engine TCe 115 mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox.
The TCe 115 unit consumes just 5.7 l/100 km over a combined cycle for the five-seater model, for CO2 emissions of 131 g/km3 (5.9 l/100 km3 and 135 g/km3 for the seven-seater).
The dCi 110 is among the most frugal engines in the segment, at 4.4 l/100 km3 (116 g/km3 of CO2) respectively.
Dokker Stepway is available with one petrol engine and one diesel engine
Dokker Stepway ships with the TCe 115 petrol unit, with fuel consumption of just 5.8 l/100 km3 over a combined cycle and CO2 emissions of 135 g/km3.
With 90 hp, the engine is remarkably frugal, consuming a modest 4.5 l/100 km3 over a combined cycle for CO2 emissions of 118 g/km3.
