Brazilian media has managed to acquire revealing spy shots of the upcoming Renault Sandero RS.

Brazilian media has managed to acquire revealing spy shots of the upcoming Renault Sandero RS.

The hot hatchback has received a slightly more aggressive body with beefier bumpers, extended side skirts, roof-mounted spoiler and black alloy wheels wrapped around in Continental tires. It also has glossy black side mirror caps and appears to sit lower which indicates the adoption of a sportier suspension setup. Rounding off the list of exterior changes are the blackened headlight and taillights clusters, rear disc brakes while a sportier exhaust tip should also be there.

Despite being unfinished, the cabin already shows some body-hugging seats featuring a multi-tone look and red contrast stitching also applied on the leather-wrapped steering wheel. The prototype featured a six-speed manual gearbox, white center dial while the infotainment system and the center vents were missing.

Local media is suggesting the model will be powered by a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter naturally aspirated engine borrowed from the BR-spec Duster so expect output to stand at around 143 bhp (107 kW).

Renault has already announced the Sandero RS will be a product exclusively for Latin America and at the moment there's no word whether Dacia will get its own version at some point.
