Dacia has made its famed Sandero and Sandero Stepway even more appealing with the introduction of the Journey trim level and the TCe 110 turbocharged petrol engine on selected versions.

  • Sandero Stepway Extreme customers can now complement the top-of-the-range specification with the TCe 110 engine. Combining strong, flexible performance with efficiency, the three-cylinder engine produces 110 hp and 200 Nm of torque, while also being capable of returning 45.6 mpg (WLTP combined) and emitting only 125 g/km CO2. It enables the Sandero Stepway to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in 10 seconds and is paired to a six-speed manual transmission.

    The Euro 6-compliant engine takes the drivetrain options available with the Sandero Stepway Extreme to four with the distinctive crossover also being available to order with TCe 90, TCe 90 automatic and TCe 100 bi-fuel powertrains.

    The Sandero Stepway Extreme TCe 110 is priced at £18,645 on-the-road.

    Sandero is now bolstered by the arrival of the Journey trim level, which is already a firm favourite with Duster customers.

    The addition of the Journey specification brings a host of new equipment to the five-door supermini as well as the availability of automatic transmission when ordered with the TCe 90 engine.

    Building on the generous specification of the Essential and Expression versions, Sandero’s new flagship trim level adds automatic air conditioning, rear parking sensors, reversing camera, electronic parking brake, Blind Spot Warning and the MediaNav infotainment system with 8-inch screen, DAB radio, Bluetooth, Smartphone replication, USB-C ports front and rear, six speakers, plus Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

    Outside, the Journey is identifiable by a shark-fin antenna, ‘Randia’ 16-inch alloy wheels and black door mirrors, while inside there’s a high central armrest with console storage, removable phone support, flexible boot floor and door sill protectors.

    The Sandero Journey costs from £15,795 on-the-road.

    Both the Sandero and Sandero Stepway ranges are now also European Global Safety Regulation 2 compliant, with all versions produced after April 2024 benefitting from enhanced ADAS features that meet the regulatory safety standards.
