The Renault Sandero range has become synonymous with a host of features and fitments exclusive to its class. Powered by a Turbo engine (unique in its class), the Sandero boasts superb safety features as well as smart technologies as standard across the full range.

When Sandero first entered the South African motoring landscape in February 2009, Renault’s key objective was to provide a high-value proposition in the entry level passenger car segment. 

Since then the Renault Sandero has evolved dramatically with numerous quality, feature and styling enhancements. The introduction of the First Generation top-of-the-range Sandero Stepway in 2011 blazed a red-hot trail popularizing the crossover concept in South Africa.

With its comprehensive and fresh line-up, Sandero has continued to enjoy ever-increasing success recording sales of over 64,100 units to date. The flagship Stepway model has proven to be an extremely popular choice with sales in excess of 30,500 vehicles since its introduction in 2011.

In celebration of its marked success, Renault South Africa is proud to introduce the new enhanced Sandero Stepway TechRoad, set to replace the current flagship model. 

The new Renault Sandero Stepway TechRoad offers the appealing DNA of the Sandero model plus so much more, an even more enhanced SUV look and an even more value for money product.

The exterior of the Stepway is distinguished through its bespoke design and badging with 16” two-tone Flex wheel covers with blue centre caps, and Gloss Black door mirrors with distinctive design decals on B-Pillars & lower sections of the doors. 

Powered by Renault’s F1-inspired three cylinder, 900cc petrol Turbo engine mated to a manual 5-speed gearbox, exudes amazing power, unparalleled responsiveness and driving pleasure thanks to low-end torque. 

With maximum output of 66kW @ 5 250 rpm and a peak torque of 135Nm at 2 500 rpm, of which 90% is available from 1 650rpm, the TechRoad accelerates from 0 to 100kph in just 11.1 seconds, to its top speed of 169kph. 

All this plus an impressive 5.4 litres/100km fuel consumption and just 124g/km CO² emissions. 

StepwayTechRoad offers enriched standard features, such side airbags, front and rear power windows, electric side mirrors, leather steering wheel and gear knob and rear park assist. Cruise control and navigation are also standard (unique in this vehicle segment) while leather seats are an option. This latest model also offers a new bespoke upholstery design, which is totally on-trend, with distinct blue detailing on the seat design, and throughout the cabin.

The comprehensive Renault MediaNav integrated on-board multimedia system with 7” touchscreen, is an extremely intuitive system offering quick access to all settings. The new Stepway offers Smartphone Mirroring, an extremely beneficial functionality with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

The Stepway also boasts Rear Parking Camera, to facilitate the driver by alleviating blind spots in reverse mode.

The enhanced Stepway Techroad offering remains true to the Sandero value-for-money product range.

The Stepway Techroad comes with Renault’s 5-year / 150 000 km warranty together with a standard 2-year / 30 000 km service plan. Services are at 15 000km intervals.

Sandero parts are very competitively priced and Renault’s Gauteng-based Parts & Distribution ensures that parts availability is running at 95% plus.

New Renault Stepway TechRoad 66kw Turbo retails at R243 900.
