Renault Sandero - Cheap Thrills Dacia Logan Based Hatch
French carmaker Renault is continuing its assault on the inexpensive car market with the introduction of the Dacia Logan based Renault Sandero. About the size of a Fiat Grande Punto (4.02 metres or 158-inches long), the 5door Sandero has been developed from the same B0 platform as the Logan and it is built initially in the Curitiba plant in Brazil. According to Renault, Sandero will be marketed in Brazil from December 2007, followed by Argentina and other markets shortly after. In Europe, a model derived from the Sandero will enhance the Dacia line-up
Renault hasn't given out all the details yet but the French did announce that in Argentina, the Sandero will be powered by a 1.6 16v petrol unit and a 1.5 dCi diesel engine, while in Brazil it will be offered with three Flexfuel engines that burn biofuels -1.0 16v, 1.6 8v and 1.6 16v.
