Renault has patented the appearance of the third generation of Sandero compact hatchback in Russia. The corresponding document with images of the novelty appeared on Friday, March 19 in the open database of the Federal Institute of Industrial and Intellectual Property (FIPS).
Judging by the images, the Russian model will be separated from the European version (in the EU the car is sold under the Dacia brand) with a radiator grille and a corporate emblem. There is still no data on the timing of the launch of the hatchback and its engines for the domestic market. At the same time, Renault is already conducting road tests for Sandero for Russia; in February, the car was seen in Togliatti, in the territory of AvtoVAZ.
The third generation of Dacia Sandero and Logan were unveiled last fall. The models were created on the CMF-B modular platform and the engine range included 1.0-liter supercharged, naturally aspirated engines with a capacity of 65 to 100 horsepower.
It is assumed that in Russia the car will be offered with the previous 1.6-liter units that develop 82, 102 and 113 horsepower. Motors can run on a five-speed “mechanics”, a four-speed “automatic” or a drive. At the same time, it is possible that Sandero has a modification with a 1.33-liter turbo engine, which is installed in the Arkana crossover and the new Duster.
