After a long series of teasers and small videos with the camouflaged car, Renault unveiled the new Sandero RS, the most powerful Sandero ever created.
The car was developed by Renault Sport exclusively for Latin America and is the first RS model to be built outside Europe. The vehicle creates a sporty sub-segment in the market’s most competitive category.
With five seats and five doors, it is a real hot hatch developing 145 hp, with a six-speed manual gearbox, ESC with sports tuning, new suspension settings, steering and brake system with four discs. According to Renault, the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h takes 8.5 seconds and the maximum speed reaches 200 km/h.
New Renault Sandero R.S. will be launched in Argentina in early 2016, and in the Buenos Aires Motor Show was showcased along the Renault Duster Oroch.
"The new models that Renault is showing today herald a new era, in which products are designed and built in Latin America for Latin Americans. This is the case of the new Renault Sandero R.S. 2.0, which combines the fundamental components of pleasure and passion as seen by Renault Sport. It delivers an exciting driving experience and a sporty ambience", said Olivier Murguet, Commercial Director of the Americas Region.
