Renault has published a teaser video with an RS version of the Sandero supermini.

Developed by Renaultsport, the hot Sandero will wear the diamond logo and it's not known at this point whether Dacia will be getting its own version of the model. The attached teaser video doesn't reveal a lot, but we do notice a redesigned front bumper hosting LED daytime running lights. Expect a more aggressive body, beefier brakes, dual exhaust tips, enlarged black wheels with Continental tires along with a few minor interior tweaks denoting it's a higher specification RS model.

Taking into account it will wear Renault's badge, the model will be sold in markets such as Russia and Brazil where Dacia is not commercially available. The identity of the engine is not known at this point, but most likely it will be a naturally aspirated unit teamed up with a six-speed manual gearbox. One possible candidate for the engine is a 2.0-liter 16v from the BR-spec Duster where it churns 143 bhp when running on gasoline and 148 bhp on ethanol.

A full reveal of the Renault Sandero RS should occur in the weeks to come.
