Renault’s Brazilian division has locally introduced the second generation of the Sandero which as you might have guessed it’s essentially a rebadged version of Romania’s Dacia Sandero, representing a five-door hatchback derivative of the Dacia Logan which is also sold in Brazil with the Renault logo. It adopts a slightly more upscale exterior design compared to the original version thanks to a reworked front bumper with chrome inserts and different fog lights. On the inside of the Sandero the commands for the electric windows are now placed on the door panels while the trunk capacity stands at 320 liters or 1,196 liters with the rear seats down.
Under the hood is a modest 16-valve 1.0-liter gasoline engine with 80 bhp (57 kW) in the base Sandero Authentique version that is also compatible with ethanol. Expression and Dynamique versions get an 8-valve 1.6-liter rated at 98 bhp and 106 bhp when using ethanol.
Optionally available is a Media Nav infotainment system made by LG with navigation, rear parking sensors, automatic climate control system (not available on the Dacia Sandero), USB & Bluetooth support, cruise control, front airbags, ABS & EBD, split folding rear bench, central locking and a leather-covered steering wheel.
