Dacia Sandero Stepway Bi-Fuel 2020 review

  Dacia Sandero Stepway Bi-Fuel 2020 review Dacia has launched an LPG version of its best-selling car in the UK. It makes the great-value Sandero Stepway Bi-Fuel even more of a money-saverLPG was big news in the early 2000s, until the government killed it by withdrawing the generous grants. Today, Dacia not only prices its cars as if we were back in the early 2000s, it’s also taking inspiration from the retro fuel type of the noughties.

The entry-level version is the S 350 d AMG Line, priced from £78,705. This diesel variant produces 286hp, emits 173g/km CO2 and averages 40.4-42.8mpg.

Even this version is swift, accelerating from 0-62mph in 6.4 seconds.

The S 400 d 4MATIC, an all-wheel drive diesel, is only available in long wheelbase guise, and costs from £94,135.

This punchy diesel produces 330hp, emits 192g/km CO2 and averages 37.7-38.7mpg. 0-62mph takes 5.4 seconds.

The petrol alternative is the S 500 4MATIC, priced from £89,105. This produces 435hp and takes 4.9 seconds from 0-62mph. It averages 32.8-34.9mpg and emits 194g/km CO2.

Every new S-Class features MBUX infotainment with a 12.8-inch OLED central touchscreen, a 12.3-inch driver display – and some have an MBUX tablet, which can be taken out of the car and used as a regular Android device.

Top 3 used small sporty SUVs for £16,000

  Top 3 used small sporty SUVs for £16,000 “Dear Carbuyer, I want a small SUV that’s quick off the mark, what do you recommend for a budget of £16,000?”While the Nissan Juke is credited with creating the small SUV class, the Nismo RS version of the Juke, launched in 2015, was also one of the first mainstream small performance SUVs. Power came from a turbocharged 1.6-litre engine producing 215bhp, which was a considerable increase over the standard car. It meant the flagship Juke could manage 0-62mph in seven seconds - a time not that far behind hot hatchbacks of the era.

Every person in the S-Class can now say ‘Hey Mercedes’ and activate the built-in virtual assistant.

Equipment is comprehensive. All S-Class feature Nappa leather upholstery, soft-close doors, all-round heated seats and 19-inch alloys.

AMG Line Premium trim ups the alloys to 20-inches and adds Burmester 3D surround sound audio, a panoramic sliding sunroof, 3D driver display and active ambient lighting.

AMG Line Premium Plus has 21-inch alloys, plus luxuries such as heated front and rear door arm rests and an augmented reality head-up display.

Executive pack can be added to either Premium or Premium Plus, for £3,795. It includes an MBUX rear tablet, electric sunblinds, electric footrest on the back of the front passenger seat, plus a chauffeur package.

Mercedes-Benz adds the arrival of 4MATIC all-wheel drive for the S 400 d and S 500 is a first for right-hand drive S-Class.

Europe’s leagues have never been so predictable – but the solutions might be worse

  Europe’s leagues have never been so predictable – but the solutions might be worse Juventus, Bayern Munich, PSG and the Clasico sides dominate their own leagues, while the Champions League is as competitive as it has ever been. How do we fix European football?The Premier League, by comparison, is increasingly a haven of free competition: the last 10 years have seen five different clubs finish top, the same number the 20 years previous had managed.
