Renault preparing an RS version of the Dacia Sandero

Article by Christian A., on August 27, 2014

And the car everyone was waiting for it is about to happen! According to Autocar, who spoke with Renaultsport boss Mr. Patrice Ratti, the French carmaker will indeed build a high-performance RS version of the Dacia Sandero. Although it will be available only in Russia and Brazil, the vehicle will go on sale next year.

Ratti confirmed the fact that the Dacia Sandero RS project is well underway but didn’t give any details regarding the engine found under the hood.

Taking in consideration that the most powerful version of the Sandero is powered by a 1.6-liter four-cylinder petrol engine, there are big chances to see the same powerplant on theupcoming vehicle.

We don’t expect the engine to deliver too much power as Ratti said that the Sandero is actually lighter than a Clio and as a result, they don’t need too much horsepower.

In addition, Ratti also confirmed that Renault will offer an RS version of the Twingo, as well as performance crossover likely based on the Captur.
