Firm's Sandero Stepway Concept is a rugged, jacked-up version of the Dacia Sandero hatchback
5 November 2010

Renault has revealed this ‘junior Dacia Duster’ concept, the Sandero Stepway.

The Renault Sandero Stepway Concept is effectively a jacked-up, more rugged version of the Dacia Sandero hatchback. The Sandero Stepway has reportedly seen Renault teaming up with a well-known jewellery maker to add new decorations, colour and textures.

With the sporty bodykit, three-tone paint scheme, “flower decals” to the rear, roof and right part of the bonnet, and an array of blue LEDs, Renault says the Stepway is aimed at a female market, which “will be surprised by the creativity of visual design”.

New wheels were fitted on the Sandero Stepway Concept and under the bonnet is a 1.6-litre Hi-Flex ethanol engine capable of developing 112bhp.

The model is not due to be launched in the South American market until late 2012.Aaron SmithRead Autocar's first drive of the Dacia Duster

I assume Boots. I immediately assumed this was a Kalifornia Kustom Kreation. No thanks

Enjoying a Fabia VRs - affordable performance

Tell me your not serious?,this is almost a hippy car, flowers!, three tone paint!, i hope it's just showing how and what you can personalise your car, it's IFA!

This is what Nissan should do with their Tiida/Verso model. It looks pretty grim as a regular hatch/saloon - tarting it up something like this would be an improvement.

Partronising sexist garbage. Most of the women I know are looking for practical reliable cars with room for and easy loading of kids, elderly relatives, shopping etc, or trying to recapture their lost youth with sporty convertibles (although I will admit that I know more in the former category than the latter)

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out

    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again

    Off-road estate is now bigger, more spacious and available with torque-vectoring all-wheel drive, but is it enough to make its German rivals anxious?
