HistoryEdit

 
dacia SuperNova

It was a transversely mounted, front-engined, front wheel drive layout under the compact liftback body of the facelifted 1995 Dacia Nova. The SupeRNova was the first model Automobile Dacia released after the company had been taken over by Renault, in 1999. The improvement over the Nova model consisted in an authentic Renault engine and gearbox, replacing the old, thirsty Cleon-Fonte based unit and Romanian-designed gearbox.

The "new" engine was the catalyzed and multi-port injected version of the E7J inline-four, joined to a manual five-speed JH3 gearbox. Equipment was better than it had been in the Nova model, as air conditioning, alloy wheels and electric front windows were available for the more upmarket versions. SuperNova was sold in five different trim levels: "Europa", "Confort", "Rapsodie", top version "Clima" and special edition "Campus". The car was Euro 2 emission regulation compliant, as regulations for domestically produced automobiles required. Some of the 2003 versions were Euro 3 compliant.[1]
