Months ago Dacia presented us with a performance based alternative Dacia Sandero a Dacia Sandero RS coming, under the banner of Renualt, for the Latin American market , a few steps away from the “aura low cost” to offer a new SUV with the hallmark of Renault Sport . Now Dacia has published a new video Dacia Sandero RS and we have been tempted to ask whether would or no place in the European market .

Recalling … what gives us the Dacia Sandero RS?

The Dacia Sandero RS offers less than other SUVs power. Its price would be considerably less presumably … and of course, would have to face to face with the Suzuki Swift Sport.

Small GTI Dacia gets moved by a propeller of 2 liter 4 cylinder of displacement that develops a power of 150 horses announcing the 0 to 100 km / h in 8 seconds .

Considering the amount of power this Dacia Sander RS ​​would stay a step below what we offer models like the SEAT Ibiza Cupra , the Ford Fiesta ST The Peugeot 208 GTI or its distant cousin, the Renault Clio RS . We were unable to test this Dacia Sandero RS, but they also presupposes a more careful these settings, as well as, of course, an interior several steps above.

His closest rival would be a small samurai: the Suzuki Swift Sport
