Introduced yesterday at the Sao Paulo Auto Show in Brazil, the Renault Sand’up Concept SUV was designed by the French automaker specifically to cater to the needs of the average Latin American resident. Equal parts baja truck and and convertible coupe, the Renault Sand’up is based on the Sandero Stepway and is engineered to adapt flawlessly to both on and off-road terrain. Beneath the hood, the Sand’up is powered by a 112-hp, 1.6L engine capable of running on either standard gasoline or ethanol. Renault claims the Sand’up can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 10.5 seconds, but with no firm plans guaranteeing the Sand’up will ever reach production, we’re just going to have to take their word for it.
