As the 2013 Dacia Sandero 2 hatchback is geared to make its entry at the Paris Motor Show later this month, rubbing shoulders with the 2012 Logan 2, it may be seen that this next generation Sandero is based on its predecessor’s shorter platform. The five door hatchback will also share other styles and hardware with its former model but where the present day Sandero does well is where interior space is concerned.
Here the 2013 Dacia Sandero 2 Hatchback will be seen with plenty of space in its cabin both where driver and front passenger seating and also where rear space is concerned. Sandero 2 has a new type of front grille design. It is seen with a double chrome bar with mesh backing which gives it a richer look than the current model.
Interiors too are given a makeover with a large 7” display. Touch controls of six functions include radio, media, phone, hands free calls, maps and navigation settings. The new price of Sandero 2 will be priced in the region of €7,900 for the base model with a 1.2 liter 75 hp engine while the top end model Sandero Stepway is also expected to be launched.
Renault has not mentioned anything about launching the new Sandero in India, but going by the way they are expanding in the Indian auto industry (remember Duster and newly launched Scala), launch of the Sandero small car in India might be on the cards.

Auto News Release
New Dacia Logan and New Dacia Sandero
Eight years after the launch of Logan, which still stands out as a symbol of the brand’s renaissance, Dacia is poised to take the wraps off New Dacia Logan and New Dacia Sandero at the 2012 Paris Motor Show.
New, more assertive, status-enhancing styling
New Dacia Logan and New Dacia Sandero mark the introduction of new, more assertive, status-enhancing design cues at Dacia.
Exterior styling: a greater sense of identity
Dacia’s new styling identity exudes a global impression of quality and strength.
The harmonious front-end lines are shared by both new models and highlight the Dacia logo which sits boldly in the grille. The front end’s look is made even more expressive by the forms of the wide headlights and the grille.
Seen from the side, the harmonious proportions of the body panels compared with the glazed surfaces reinforce the impression of robustness suggested by the sculpted waistline, more prominent wheel arches and indented flanks which are hallmarks of the entire range.
More attractive interior styling
Both new models inaugurate the new dark charcoal or two-tone well-equipped, modern dashboard (depending on model and version) which features chrome instrument bevels and particularly functional, latest-generation controls.
The air vent surrounds, logo on the steering wheel and gear lever knob are all picked out in chrome (depending on equipment level), while the bottom edge of the central fascia features a coloured trim (depending on finish) that harmonises with the door pulls and decorative steering wheel insert.
Meanwhile, special attention has been paid to ensuring an immediate impression of quality which is reinforced by the materials selected for the interior and by the more careful fit-and-finish.
To win over the confidence of the brand’s customers, Dacia vehicles are engineered to be durably reliable. Like the rest of the Dacia range, New Logan and New Sandero benefit from a three-year or 100,000-kilometre warranty.
