The UK-bound Dacia Sandero made an appearance at the 2012 Paris Motor Show. With new exterior styling, a revised cabin and a total of four engine options, the Sandero offers buyers a low buck runabout. The five-door carries an MSRP of €7,900 and may be had in either gasoline or diesel guise. That price will fetch you power steering, a folding rear seat, stability control and the luxury of air bags. That's right: plural.

Those who require a little more flash can opt for one of three higher trims, the loftiest of which serves up Bluetooth hands-free calling, navigation and rear park assist. Later this year, Dacia will introduce a liquid propane gas variant to the mix as well. Check out the quick press blast below.

Dacia will take advantage of the Paris Motor Show to open its order books for New Dacia Sandero and New Dacia Sandero Stepway.

New Dacia Sandero will be available in a choice of three equipment levels, while customers will be able to specify one of two equipment levels for the Stepway version.

Like all Dacia models, New Dacia Sandero and New Dacia Sandero Stepway are backed up by a three-year or 100,000km warranty.

Prices for New Dacia Sandero will start from €7,900 in France.

From the very first equipment level, New Dacia Sandero features power steering and a 60/40-split folding rear bench seat for extra comfort and versatility, plus ESC frontal and lateral airbags for enhanced safety.

In addition, the second equipment level (Ambiance) comes with remote central locking, electric front windows and Dacia Plug&Radio audio (radio CD MP3, jack and USB sockets, Bluetooth® telephony with steering wheel-mounted remote control).

The Lauréate equipment level is equipped with climate control, a trip computer and a Modularity Pack (height-adjustable driver's seat, steering wheel and front seat belts).

From launch, it will be possible to order New Dacia Sandero with one of four engines: the 1.2 16V 75 or brand new TCe 90 petrol engines, as well as the dCi 75 or dCi 90 diesel engines. An LPG-powered version will be available from the end of the year.

New Dacia Sandero Stepway has undergone an upgrade, too, and comes in a choice of two equipment levels, with prices (in France) starting from €10,590.

The Stepway Ambiance version of New Sandero Stepway boasts the same equipment as Sandero Ambiance. It also comes with features expected of crossovers, with its adventurer looks heightened by raised ground clearance, satin-finish chrome-effect front and rear skid plates, longitudinal roof bars, fog lights and sill extensions. Its sporty calling is underpinned by 16-inch Flexwheel wheels, door sill trims and specific Stepway upholstery. Metallic paint is the standard finish for Sandero Stepway.

Over and above this list, the Stepway Prestige equipment level also packs Media Nav navigation, climate control, cruise control with speed limiter, rear parking sensors and electric rear windows.

For the moment, New Dacia Sandero Stepway is powered by the dCi 90 diesel engine, while the catalogue will be joined by the TCe 90 petrol engine at the end of the year.
