Renault Sand'Up - The Joy of Economy
What Renault have shown with their Sand'Up is nothing other than the matching concept version of the already premiered Sandero Stepway, i.e. an affordable leisure off-roader which, in keeping with the Zeitgeist, is replete with plastic and aluminium components.
But this prototype has a few more tricks up its sleeve. The doors of the Sand'Up are see-through, which makes for a light-infused interior. As the designers are only kidding, we won't pontificate about the side-impact safety spec. After all, we can dream, can't we? The rear tailgate can be opened up like on a Suzuki Jimny to give you that free-and-easy beach buggy feeling.
The subdued shading of the headlights would also look good on the series Sandero but might push up the price too much. The financial pros at Dacia have a reputation for wielding their red pens: interesting to see which features they consider viable for incorporation into the Sandero Stepway.
