Renault Launches Sandero Stepway Crossover Version
Renault is enriching its Sandero line-up with the introduction of a crossover version that will be launched from October in Brazil and then in Argentina. Manufactured at Renault’s Curitiba plant in Brazil, the Sandero Stepway is based on the French carmaker’s low-cost hatchback.
Apart from the higher ground clearance, the Stepway has been enhanced with restyled bumpers and grille, roof bars with an integrated spoiler and a chrome-finished exhaust pipe. In Brazil, the only engine available on the Sandero Stepway will be the 112 HP 1.6-liter Hi-Flex that runs on bio-ethanol. In Argentina however, Renault will also offer a dCi diesel engine on the Sandero Stepway.
