Like this  https://www.topgear....get-sandero-rs what engine is in your sandero? or perhaps this https://www.renaults...-2l-2019-.html  In Europe one use to get the Duster with a 2 litre engine.

According to some, the Sandero Stepway is under-geared, so you could fit bigger wheels , so that would make it ‘faster’, but I don’t know what it would do for acceleration.

 

Reading the ‘few things’ that you don’t like, I’m wondering if you bought the wrong car.

When the rolling diameter of the tyre changes you will find that your speedo will not read correctly and you could get a speeding ticket, also the acceleration would be slower, what engine is fitted as we have the Stepway with the 1.5Dci 90hp (66kw) engine and that is pretty good.

Because of the nature of the original post, I was hoping you'd notice that my reply was slightly tongue in cheek.

 

I don't think the diesel is the answer to the poster's quest for more speed. According to the French equivalent of 'Which', the tce is slightly more than half-a-second quicker, 0 to 100km/h, than the diesel, but the latter, of course, has more flexibility, something I have to say I miss, having driven diesels for the past 23 years. Top speeds are similar.

 

Not complaining though; the only complaint I've got is that the suspension seems a bit harsh, but after owning cars weighing well over half-a-ton more that's not surprising.

But with the 1.5 Dci 90hp it is easy to bring it up to 110bhp 280nm torque.

I happily bow to your superior knowledge on that!

JLB, we are all here to help each other here, save money, not superior just played around a bit more, as an old fart have years of good and useless knowledge along with all the mistakes.

dgc - as another (very) old fart who equally over the years has accumulated a lot of knowledge of varying degrees of usefulness, I'll just add that none of it involves Dacias. The Stepway I bought at the beginning of the year was my first.

 

I'm guessing the original poster has given up by now . . .

Nice to chat to you.

Likewise.
 

How is the increase in power achieved with the 1.5 Dci - with a turbo, or has it already got one fitted? I seem to recall the guy we buy our cheese from saying his big Renault van has a similar-size engine but with two(?) turbos.

These 1.5 Dci engines all have a turbo fitted. The higher output versions are fitted with a variable geometry turbos, the lesser power engines are fitted with standard turbos. the engines do not in themselves have more power, it's the tuning level from the factory, but for example a Stepway which has a 1.5 Dci 90bhp engine could easily be brought up to 110bhp with 260nm+ torque with an ECU upgrade, similarly a Duster with 108bhp engine can be brought up to 130bhp 280nm+ torque. The Mercedes A180d using the same engine puts out 116bhp with 260nm torque.

Yes, that ties in better with what I recall of the conversation (well it was two years ago and in  French!). He said he looked at both the Renault and the Merc, similar engine but the Merc was too expensive.

Myself and the better half had a Mercedes each, very nice cars, loved mine with it's semi automatic gearbox, would throw people seeing a gear lever for the manual gearbox and two pedals for an automatic, but as you say could buy four Dacia's for the price of the two Mercedes.
