Solenza is the first car model in an extensive renewal of Romanian car maker Dacia's line-up. The Solenza is built at Dacia's Pitesti plant and will be released on the Romanian market in mid-April 2003. As well as widening Dacia's lead on the Romanian market (close to 50% in 2002, with 52,742 units), Solenza will also help Dacia develop export markets in North Africa and Central and Eastern Europe.
