Escape Is Dacia Sandero Stepway Competition Winner, Will Enter Limited Production

Dacia has once again called on its community to choose a limited edition model based on the Sandero Stepway.

In July, the brand challenged young designers via the Creapills platform to come up with new looks for the jacked-up hatchback. Three of the proposals made it to the final and were presented to the Dacia community at the Paris Auto Show on October 2. All the public had to do was choose one of the three projects by voting on the Internet and at the show.

More than 100,000 people voted online and at the Paris Auto Show, and Flora Jammes’ Escape design emerged as a winner, with nearly 38,000 votes. The designs of the other two finalists (Aurélie Abric and Pierre Lancien) tied for second place.

As a result, Flora Jammes, the co-creator of a collective called Automne Studio, will see her project on the streets soon. Dacia will build the Sandero Stepway Escape limited edition model in a production run of 400 units that will be available in France by the end of 2019.

The winning model debuted in front of the public on October 14, the last day of the Paris Auto Show. The car features “Escape” graphics on the bonnet and B-pillars, a unique roof design, and interrupted white stripes on the mirror caps. It also gets particular “Stepway” lettering on the front doors.

Dacia didn’t show any photos of the interior, so we wouldn’t expect any significant changes compared to the regular model.
