Renault Russia has announced the Renault Logan Stepway cross-sedan, in addition to an updated Sandero Stepway and Dokker Stepway. The introduction of the Logan Stepway confirms multiple reports which stated that Renault would experiment with this body style.
The Renault Logan Stepway gets a black radiator grille with chrome linings, highlights for the fog lamp enclosures, LED daytime running lights, 360-degree body cladding and a raised 195 mm ground clearance (the standard Logan offers a 155 mm ground clearance). Inside, all Stepway models are equipped with a new steering wheel with improved ergonomics and a new multimedia system MediaNav 4.0 with support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
Depending on the variant, the Renault Logan Stepway and Sandero Stepway will also offer a remote start system, developed specifically for Russia, which allows the engine and cabin to warm up before commencing a trip, a heated windshield, heated front seats and ORVMs and rear parking sensors.
