Renault is enriching its vehicle line-up in Mercosur with Renault Sandero Stepway, launched from October in Brazil and then in Argentina. The newcomer’s assertive styling is targeted at sophisticated urban customers looking for a vehicle that sets them apart. Renault Sandero Stepway boasts the same fundamental qualities of roominess and reliability as Renault Sandero, this last quality underscored by a three-year/100,000-km warranty in Brazil.
Manufactured at the Curitiba plant, Renault Sandero Stepway is the fifth of six models to be launched in Brazil as part of Renault Commitment 2009. Renault doubled its sales in Brazil between 2007 and 2008 with this strong product offensive. The brand now ranks among the top five best-selling manufacturers in the country.
An all-new vehicle in the Renault Mercosur range
Renault programmed an Urban Sport variant of Renault Sandero right from the start of the design phase. Developed primarily for the needs of the Brazilian market, Renault Sandero Stepway targets sophisticated urban customers looking for a vehicle with assertive and distinctive styling. The forceful personality of Renault Sandero Stepway is reflected in raised ground clearance, roof bars with an integrated spoiler, exclusive bumpers and grille, and a chrome-finished exhaust pipe. The high-set driver’s position makes for a stress-free urban drive, while driving pleasure is fully delivered by the only engine available on Sandero Stepway : the 112 hp 1.6 16V Hi-Flex, Renault’s most powerful bio-ethanol powerplant in Brazil.
