Dacia’s strong sense of outdoor spirit and adventure has been made greater thanks to the new range-topping Extreme trim level and the release of an innovative Sleep Pack that converts the Jogger’s spacious interior into a mobile bedroom.
The new Extreme trim- which marks the pinnacle of the Sandero Stepway range and replaces the previous Extreme SE on Jogger and Duster – stands out with an eye-catching look that lends itself well to the great outdoors.
The vibrant Cedar Green paintwork perfectly contrasts Copper Brown mirror caps, wheel centres, Dacia tailgate logo and roof bar emblems. Sandero Stepway and Jogger also feature Copper Brown detailing for the front fog lights, plus a striking topographical pattern on the front doors and side guards. With a similar design, the Duster boasts door pillars, protective wheel arch flares and snorkel. All models are complete with Brilliant Black shark antenna and alloy wheels - 16-inch on Sandero Stepway and 17-inch on Duster.
The same appealing topographical pattern makes its way into the interior where it appears on the door sills and hard-wearing rubber floor mats, while Copper Brown highlights can be found on the front door panels, air vent surrounds, and Duster’s gear lever surround and stitching.
New upholstery material called Microcloud is making it’s debut within the trio of Extreme models. Donned across seats, door panels and the dashboard, it’s soft and velvet like appearance is hard-wearing and easy-to-clean.
Complementing Duster’s availability as a rugged and robust four wheel drive model, both Sandero Stepway Extreme and Jogger Extreme are now equipped with Extended Grip as standard. This clever feature which is activated via a button on the centre console, adjusts the electronic stability control (ESC) settings to maximise the available traction on loose surfaces, helping drivers venture further off the beaten track.
Jogger owners can benefit from Dacia’s latest accessory which is part of the InNature range. The clever new Sleep Pack turns the Jogger’s spacious interior into a bedroom for two in a matter of minutes. Going camping has been easier.
Sleep Pack is simple, removable, and affordable. It is compatible with all Dacia Jogger rim levels and features a 220-litre storage box that can be accessed with the double bed unfolded or folded. The well thought out Sleep Pack has the ability to be set up unassisted in under two minutes and only requires the removal of the third-row seats.
Weighing less than 50kg, the set up and removal is effortless. The 190cm x 130cm mattress still offers a surprising 60cm of headroom which limits the chances of anything going bump in the night. In the morning, the pack can be quickly folded away before embarking on your next adventure.
If you require more sleeping space, a smart tent is also available that can be connected to the Jogger’s open tailgate, while black out blinds for all windows offer privacy and light control.
Priced from £16,745 on-the-road for Sandero Stepway Extreme, from £19,695 on-the-road for Duster Extreme and from £19,445 on-the-road for Jogger Extreme, the new adventurous new trim line is available to order from 1 March with the Sleep Pack following in the second quarter of the year.
Lionel Jaillet, Dacia VP Product Performance said: “Having launched our new brand identity across all our models, we are now launching a new trim level across several models in the Dacia range. The Extreme trim level encapsulates Dacia’s outdoorsy spirit and gives even greater meaning to our brand promise. Sandero Stepway, Duster and Jogger will all be available in the Extreme trim level, which boasts a unique adventurous look and features that complement outdoor activity equipment.”
