 Renault Sandero Stepway

The exterior and interior of the car

According to subjective estimates of the car looks quite attractive. Dark linings, plastic, painted “aluminium” mirrors and handles and roof railing, located on the roof, perfectly in harmony, giving a complete view of the whole.

Inside, the situation is somewhat worse. According to the owners бюджетность here in the first place.

The benefits are spacious interior. The creators of схитрили, placing an almost vertical position back of the couch, and the backs of the front seats made thin, in addition to depriving pockets. Therefore, in the back seat can comfortably accommodate three passengers, “armed with” safety belt and full headrest.

Overview interior finishes the glove box. It attracts attention with its large capacity, convenient location and secure lock, however, the absence of light in it for many owners is a disadvantage.
