The Dacia Solenza was a small liftback produced from 2003 to 2005. It was a reshaped version of the Dacia SupeRNova, which in turn was an improved version of the Dacia Nova. Production of the Solenza ceased in 2005, when Dacia Logan was introduced.
The Solenza was initially developed in 4 versions depending on its features: Europa, Confort, Rapsodie, Clima and Scala. The top version was Scala which included air conditioning, power steering, aluminium wheels, CD player and many other features known for the first time on a Dacia car. The air conditioning was not available with the diesel engine because they were not compatible, so the top version for the diesel range was designated Avantage. A no frills version called Europa was introduced in 2004, lacking windows tint, painted bumpers, side moldings or tachometer. The car shared engines, gearbox and several interior parts with the second-generation Renault Clio. It was released with a 1,4-litre petrol and a 1,9-litre Diesel engine.
