Published: 05 March 2019

► Limited edition trim for popular back-to-basics crossover
► Added kit and plenty of red detailing
► New 1.3-litre engine announced too

Dacia will be offering a special, limited edition trim for its off-road Duster and Stepway models, packed with equipment and eye-catching styling.

The Techroad trim was revealed at the 2019 Geneva motor show and will be available on the Duster, Logan MCV Stepway and Sandero Stepway from April 2019.

What does it include?

As well as offering two new colours - Fusion Red and Highland Grey – Techroad models are distinguished by loads of red details, such as the door mirror housings and side sills.

The theme continues inside taking in the inner door panels, air vent surrounds and front and rear protective mats, set off against contrasting grey upholstery and a dark carbon dashboard.

Anything else?

How about a red centre on the new two-tone 16- or 17-inch alloy wheels? The latter is available only on the Duster and features a diamond-cut finish for additional crossover bling.

The Techroad is also packed with kit - rear parking sensors and for Duster and climate control, keyless entry, blind spot detection, multi-view camera and the top-level nav screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto elsewhere.

New engine debut too

As well as the new trim Dacia also revealed its new 1.3 TCe petrol engine with 129 or 148bhp, which will be available on 4x4 versions from summer 2019.
