Introduced at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, Dacia’s new Techroad top-of-the-line models are now up for grabs in the United Kingdom, with deliveries kicking off this month.
Limited to the Sandero Stepway, Logan MCV Stepway and Duster, they start from £11,660 ($15,185/€13,534), £13,160 ($17,139/€15,275) and £16,360 ($21,307/€18,989), respectively.
Customers can choose between one of the two exclusive exterior colors called Fusion Red and Highland Grey. Other visual upgrades, such as the side decals with grey and red motif, side mirror caps with red detailing, red center cap on the two-tone 16-inch Flex Expression wheels for the Stepway cars and 17-inch diamond-cut alloys for the Duster and ‘Techroad’ badging, will set them apart from lesser versions.
In the cabin, the Techroad Sandero Stepway, Logan MCV Stepway and Duster feature unique upholstery with red and grey detailing and stitching on the seats, and the ‘Stepway’ and ‘Duster’ logos embroidered into the fabric. More red detailing can be seen throughout the interior, including on the door handles, gear lever, air vents and floor mats.
The two Stepway models get a Media Nav Evolution infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, DAB Radio, Bluetooth connectivity, air conditioning, soft-feel steering wheel, Cruise Control with Speed Limiter and rear parking sensors as standard.
The Duster Techroad, on the other hand, features the Media Nav Evolution system with smartphone connectivity, multi-view camera, climate control, hands-free key card, Blind Spot Detection and rear parking sensors.
Powering the Sandero Stepway and Logan MCV Stepway Techroad editions is the TCe 90 petrol engine, while the Logan can be had with the Blue dCi 95 diesel unit as well. The Duster comes with the TCe 130, TCe 150 and Blue dCi 115, with front-wheel drive, although the diesel can be specced with all-wheel drive.
