Narrowing gaps: Dacia upgrades safety - voila! vehicle

2024-02-20T16:12:55.019Z

Highlights: All models of the Low Cost brand will be upgraded to autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist detection, warning of driving at excessive speed (with a cancel button) and more. This is the second stage of GSR standardization. The first stage, in 2019, brought into our lives tire pressure sensors, DRL lights that turn on automatically every time you drive and an option for a speed limiter. The second phase, which will go into effect this July, already requires an emergency braking system that also detects pedestrians and cyclists.


All models of the Low Cost brand will be upgraded to autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist detection, warning of driving at excessive speed (with a cancel button) and more. When in Israel?


Dacia Duster 2024/Renault

In recent years, Dacia has often received criticism and low scores in the European crash test, due to a lack of active safety systems.

Now it is beginning to correct and narrow the gap, although it admits that it is only doing so because of the entry into force of new safety regulations in Europe.



This is the second stage of GSR standardization.

The first stage, in 2019, brought into our lives as standard tire pressure sensors, DRL lights that turn on automatically every time you drive and an option for a speed limiter.



The second phase, which will go into effect this July, already requires an emergency braking system that also detects pedestrians and cyclists, a warning about speeding based on traffic sign recognition, a system for preventing deviation from the lane and monitoring the driver's fatigue, preparation for an alcohol lock that requires drivers to take a breath test before driving, and a recording system Data in the event of an accident.

There is also a requirement to warn about deviation from a lane, but this has already been required by Israeli law since 2017, which has required the importer to install a warning system in the country until now.



For those who fear the speed alerts, Dacia clarifies that there will be a button that will cancel some of the systems, but the driver will have to reactivate it every time they drive, like the button to cancel the engine shutdown at a traffic light.

This means that from May Dacia will no longer be able to sell the current Duster, which is not equipped with these systems, primarily autonomous emergency braking.

The new Duster, Logan and Jogger are already equipped with it, but without the ability to detect pedestrians and cyclists, which also causes them to lose points in the European crash test.

As part of the upgrade, the three models will receive a camera-based system instead of radar until now, which may also be a disadvantage, because in the case of fog, heavy rain or total darkness, the system may not work.



Along the way, Dacia made another series of updates:



the Sandro Stepway , the crossover version that is not yet sold in Israel, received a new beige color option. The Sandro sedan received new gray and green colors.



The Jogger received new USB-c ports, a 7-inch digital dashboard, and in the hybrid version, an E-Save option that allows you to fix the battery on 70% of the capacity, for more strenuous driving than usual, such as a steep climb or a long detour.



In Europe, Dacia models are expected to become more expensive by several hundred euros due to the upgrade, in Israel the need for a warning system should be eliminated and the tax credit increased to subsidize part of the increase in price.



Mafrisbi, the Dacia importer, It was reported that the updated models will arrive in Israel by the end of the year.
