About Dacia Sandero Stepway
The Dacia Sandero Stepway is the perfect option for someone looking for a budget friendly hatchback that can seat five people and offers excellent safety and technology.
The Stepway is the high-riding version of the brand’s successful budget hatchback, the Sandero – another vehicle that offers amazing value for money, both new and used.
It is available with two different engine options, both of which are petrol engines mated to manual gearboxes or automatic transmissions at an added cost.
Inside, the Sandero Stepway features good levels of comfort, up-to-date interior technology and a raised driving position, thanks to the high roofline and raised overall ride height.
There are a few models to choose from including Essential, Comfort and Prestige.
Each model variant comes with different kit, with the range-topping model offering diamond-cut alloy wheels, heated front seats, front parking sensors, climate control and some extra safety features over the other model variants.
Is the Dacia Sandero Stepway reliable?
The Dacia Sandero Stepway comes with a variety of safety features as standard including autonomous emergency braking, six airbags and even a system that automatically calls the local authorities and alerts them of the car’s location in case of an emergency.
Top-spec Prestige models come fitted with a blind-spot warning system to help you on the motorway or around town. With Dacia being under the Renault Group, the Sandero Stepway benefits from all the same reliable safety features you’d find in a Clio or Megane, for example.
Every used vehicle we sell comes with a free 90-day warranty that can be upgraded to the cinchCare package.
What are the Dacia Sandero Stepway features?
The Dacia Sandero Stepway is packed full of impressive features for its size, class and price point. The entry-level model comes with 16-inch alloy wheels, air conditioning, a DAB radio, Bluetooth, and a smartphone holder so you can use your phone as an infotainment system.
The middle Comfort trim level offers more than enough features including an eight-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, keyless entry, rear-view camera, and modular roof bars making it easier to place kit on top of the car.
The 328-litre boot space is impressive considering Bi-Fuel models feature a hidden LPG tank under the boot floor, which would normally be reserved for a spare wheel on other trim levels.
On the topic of space, the Stepway has plenty of cabin space and can easily seat five adults, including taller people thanks to its tall ceiling.
One of the key features of the Stepway is its increased ride height, which is 97mm more than that of the standard Sandero, allowing for better visibility, more ground clearance and more of an SUV-inspired feel for the price of a hatchback.
What's the Dacia Sandero Stepway like to drive?
Power options for the Sandero Stepway include two 1.0-litre petrol engines, one producing 90hp and the other 100hp. However, there are also some used Sandero Stepway models that come fitted with LPG capabilities, which improves overall engine efficiency and costs roughly half as much as petrol.
Don’t be fooled by these small-sounding engine capacities, however, as the Stepway has quite some pip when it gets up and goes.
Both engine options can be mated to either a manual or CVT automatic gearbox, depending on trim level.
