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.
Dacia has added its entry-level SCe 75 petrol engine to the Sandero Stepway range as well as the new generation Blue dCi 95 diesel engine, with revised trim-levels on the popular small SUV
The new-generation Blue dCi 115 engine is now available to order in combination with the 4×4 drivetrain on the Dacia Duster, joining the Blue dCi 115 4×2. In addition to the “selective catalytic reduction” system (SCR), the Blue dCi 115 engines operate with a new air-water exchanger, a higher injection pressure (2,000 bars) and new gearbox ratios
Dacia has launched the Dacia Buy Online sales platform in the UK. From the touch of a button Dacia customers can now purchase a car from virtually anywhere. To mark the fact you can now buy a Dacia anywhere, Dacia created a ‘pop up dealership’ which was open for one day in the remote Yorkshire countryside inside a bus stop on the A64 between Pickering and Whitby.
Having made its global debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, the all-new Duster goes on sale in the UK from 11th June. Dacia says the new Duster has been improved and refined in almost every area but is as versatile as ever. A totally revised interior features new technologies never before seen on the Dacia range. The all-new Duster is priced from £9,995 with UK deliveries beginning from July, although diesel models start at £13,595.
