Exploring edition Dacias launched in Europe

05.04.2017

Having given its entire range a facelift last year, Renault owned Dacia has launched a limited edition Explorer series across its entire model line-up.

Based on the flagship Stepway versions of the Sandero, Logan MCV, Lodgy, Dokker and Duster, the Explorer adds satin effect chrome skid plates, different grille, body cladding, new wheels, a 50 mm increase in ground clearance and a bespoke colour dubbed Iceland Grey. Interior changes are subtle but prominent with copper orange detailing on the centre console, stitching on the seats and on the floor mats.

Engine choices are unchanged from regular models with the Sandero and Logan available with either a 66 kW / 135 Nm 0.9 TCe petrol engine or a 66 kW / 220 Nm 1.5 dCi  turbodiesel, mated to a five-speed manual or five-speed Easy R automated manual gearbox.

In the case of the Lodgy, motivation comes from a 85 kW / 190 Nm 1.2 TCe or 81 kW / 240 Nm 1.5 dCi, with both offering a choice of five or seven seats. A five-speed manual gearbox is the sole option on the petrol with the diesel employing a six-speed unit.

The Dokker meanwhile features the same petrol and transmission choice as the Lodgy, but adopts the same 66 kW diesel and five-speed manual option as the Sandero and Logan, albeit with torque rated at 200 Nm.

Completing the range, the Duster Explorer comes fitted with a 92 kW / 205 Nm 1.2 TCe petrol mill linked to a six-speed manual gearbox with the option of front or four-wheel drive, while diesel power comes a 1.5 dCi with 81 kW / 240 Nm of tap. A six-speed manual gearbox is standard on both the front and four-wheel drive model, with the latter offering the option of a six-speed EDC.

While Renault South Africa is unlikely to make the Lodgy, Dokker and Logan MCV available anytime soon, it remains to be seen whether Explorer variants of the Sandero and Duster will touch down in due course.
