Dacia models gain extra safety features

April 3, 2024

Dacia is boosting the safety and convenience of its model line-up without any additional cost to the customer.

Dacia Sandero Stepway

The new European Global Safety Regulation 2 (GSR2) legislation stipulates that all new cars must now feature a host of equipment that works to improve road safety for all, including pedestrians and cyclists.

Traditionally, adding such advanced features significantly increases a car’s cost, especially for those at the more affordable end of the market. However, Dacia UK has decided to make its Sandero, Sandero Stepway and Jogger all GSR2 compliant with no change to their price.

The trio of models, starting from the entry-level Essential trim, now benefit, as standard, from intelligent speed assist, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, Advanced Emergency Braking System (AEBS), driver drowsiness and attention warning, rear parking sensors, and automatic headlights.

Once personalising the function of certain ADAS features, a new ‘My Safety’ button allows drivers to return to their preferred settings each time the car is started with just one click.

The entire Dacia range now also includes a Rescue QR Code that is clearly visible on the windscreen and rear window. In the event of the vehicle being involved in an accident, this provides firefighters with all the information they need to rapidly respond to the emergency and make the car safe.

The addition of extra safety features coincides with other specification enhancements across the range.

Together with the recent introduction of the well-equipped Journey trim, the Sandero line-up now features new two-tone Atara Flex wheels and Randia alloy wheels on selected versions. As with the Sandero Stepway, Sandero now has a USB-C port in the front and can be ordered with the Shadow Grey and Cedar Green shades previously reserved for the Jogger and Extreme trim-equipped cars.

The Sandero Stepway is also the only Dacia to be offered with the new Safari Beige finish, with the crossover’s distinctive appearance being further bolstered with the addition of two-tone dark Atara Flex wheels and dark Randia alloy wheels that are shared with the Jogger. Both adventure-focused models also have a new decal on the front doors that features the Dacia Link emblem and the GPS coordinates of the iconic Romanian Transfagarasan highway.

Additionally, Jogger HYBRID 140 now features the seven-inch instrument panel first seen on the all-new Duster and a new E-SAVE function that allows energy to be reserved for later in a trip. For example, if a steep uphill stretch is approaching, the driver can activate E-SAVE to preserve the battery and then deactivate it once the climb has been completed.

The Sandero continues to be available from £13,795, with the Sandero Stepway and Jogger priced from £15,295 and £18,295 respectively.
