2011 Renault Sandero: So You Buy A Renault?

At last week#8217;s conference, Renault South sat media down with a 39 report on the exploding entry-level market, and no, it wasn#8217;t filled glossy pictures. Instead, I like I#8217;d been back in time to a college on statistics and quantitative analysis. my eyes where drawn to the of graphs, charts and bold red it was all a little unnecessary.

Why? what Renault have with their Sandero really rather simple, but very bold.

The Sandero has with us since production in 2009 at Renault#8217;s local facility in Rosslyn, Pretoria. to 78 countries world-wide, the Sandero#8217;s d#8217;être has always been motoring, with 715 000 motorists having agreed by choosing to one in their driveway. Locally, 24 new models having been in the sub-R120 000 price range the past 18 months, Renault Africa has decided that is one pie chart they#8217;d like a of.

The 2011 Renault Sandero line-up has been reduced four to three #8211; the simple part I mentioned The 1.6-litre United, Cup and League models have been into a single new model, as the 1.6 Dynamique. The 1.6 Dynamique uses the eight-valve, multi-point fuel-injected, engine as before, offering 64 kW of at 5 500 r/min and 128 Nm of torque at 3 000 r/min.

This is sufficient for a 0 #8211; 100 sprint time of 11.5 and a 175 km/h top speed. Average consumption is rated at 7.2 L/100km corresponding CO2 emissions of 173 g/km. For 900, the Sandero Dynamique is with 15-inch alloy an on-board computer, front windows, a four-speaker CD receiver MP3 compatibility and a USB port, a split-folding seat, white instrument with chrome satin and an array of storage compartments.

The Sandero Stepway remains since its launch in early as does the price, at R149 Externally the Stepway is distinguished the Dynamique by a 20 mm increase in ride large-diameter 16-inch alloy front fog lamps, black/satin roof bars and rugged and rear bumpers in a combination of and body-colour highlights.

There are also satin finishes for the door mirrors and front and rear skid and the exhaust outlet. Stepway plates add a further upmarket when you enter the cabin and a steering wheel rounds off the interior.

The bold part is the new Ambiance model, which R20 000 off the price of the previous Sandero 1.6 At R104 900, Renault the Ambiance to account for just half of all Sandero sales, and why it, with class-leading interior and cargo capacity (320-litres), with ABS brakes and EBD (electronic force distribution), as well as and front passenger airbags. In the Sandero Ambiance is fitted remote central door air-conditioning and power steering, a driver’s seat, engine and 14-inch wheels with R14 tyres.

The Sandero 1.4 Ambiance is powered by 1.4-litre eight-valve fuel-injected engine that produces 55 kW of at 5 500 r/min, linked to a torque of 112 Nm at 3 000 r/min. With a smooth and gearbox and clutch combination, the 1.4 manages respectable highway speeds, but don#8217;t expect more.

The Sandero manages the 0 100 km/h sprint in 13 seconds and has a top speed of 161 km/h, which, by my efforts on the launch route, be achieved with enough Average fuel consumption is a 7.0 L/100km in the combined cycle, corresponding CO2 emissions of 164 g/km. The doesn#8217;t inspire much and the front seats don#8217;t much lateral support, but the is supple, there is plenty of and first impressions suggest the materials are sturdy enough to repetitive attacks by irrepressible

The Sandero Ambiance is no pretender, a what-you-see-is-what-you-get kind of car that the biggest amount of space and for your money. The Sandero is backed by Renault#8217;s Confiance care package that a five-year/150 000 km mechanical warranty roadside assistance and ‘Stand by security guard service in the of a breakdown. A 6-year anti-corrosion is also standard.

Renault guarantee 98 percent parts availability and, spare parts are unavailable, will provide customers a #8216;mobility solution#8217;. A 3-year/45 service plan is also for the Sandero Ambiance for an extra R3

With a competent product, by confident service, Renault given a convincing answer to previous rhetorical marketing #8216;So You Wouldn#8217;t Buy A Renault?#8217; and are by example in accordance with new ethos of #8216;Drive The Change#8217;.
