Dacia has unveiled the all-new Sandero, Sandero Stepway and Logan, third generation models with completely new, reinvented designs. The company says that the three new models offer “increased style, equipment and versatility whilst retaining the fundamentals of simplicity and reliability”.
Dacia is the first manufacturer to offer LPG versions across the range, available direct from the factory. LPG versions of Dacia Duster, Sandero and Logan MCV models are now available, badged TCe 100 Bi-Fuel. All use a new 1.0-litre turbocharged dual-fuel powertrain, combining petrol and LPG capabilities and claimed to deliver superior torque in LPG mode.
Car buyers can still browse and buy their Dacia through its online shopping portal while having to remain at home. Dacia has also scrapped its home delivery costs for all models purchased online, helping cash conscious buyers save an extra £250. Anyone who orders through the platform will then be prioritised for delivery as soon as Dacia retailers are fully operational again.
Dacia has revealed the next part in its product offensive with the Spring Electric: a concept car previewing its first all-electric model as it joins the zero-emission revolution. In fifteen years, Dacia has grown to more 6.5 million customers worldwide across the Logan, Sandero and Duster models. The Spring Electric showcases the next step as it continues to change with the times while “staying true to its original values of creating vehicles which are simple, modern, reliable and affordable”.
Dacia is launching a new factory-fitted dual-fuel solution across its range of Duster, Sander, Sandero Stepway, Logan MCV and Logan MCV Stepway models, the only manufacturer in the UK to do so. The all-new 1.0-litre turbo Bi-Fuel 100 engine combines petrol and LPG fuel to deliver reduced fuel costs, lower emissions and improved performance.
Dacia has launched its new special edition SE Twenty models, which are available to order now with customer deliveries in March 2020. Available on Duster, Logan MCV Stepway and Sandero Stepway, this new addition sits above the Comfort specification across all the ranges. All SE Twenty models feature enhanced standard specification over Comfort models, plus distinctive exterior additions and bespoke interior fabrics.
Dacia has launched its new top-of-the-range Techroad special editions, now available to order with deliveries from April. Revealed at the Geneva Motor Show in March, the cross-range special edition is available on the Duster, Logan MCV Stepway and Sandero Stepway. Sitting above the Prestige trim for the Duster and above the Comfort trim for Sandero Stepway and Logan MCV Stepway, the Techroad trim is offered exclusively in two new colours: Fusion Red and Highland Grey.

The Sandero costs less than some annual train tickets when new, so the affordability of secondhand examples is even more convincing. Thankfully Access trim is petrol only and so basic that a radio isn’t even included, and so we’d take a look at Ambiance trim boasting air conditioning and Bluetooth.
It might be built to a shoestring budget, but spend time with a Duster and it will get under your skin. A bit like a cut-size (and definitely cut-price) Defender, there’s something compelling about its basic appointments and boisterous 107bhp 1.5-litre dCi engine – there’s precious little sound deadening – that is capable of 60mpg.
