The Dacia Nova (Romanian pronunciation: [ˈdat͡ʃia]) was a car manufactured by Romanian auto marque Dacia.

Dacia Nova was the first car designed by the Romanian engineers, taking a very long time to complete. This is the reason for the car looking slightly outdated when it exited the factory's gates for the first time, in 1995.[1]

Urban myth in Romania suggests that it was a version of the Renault 11 or the Peugeot 309 which is incorrect. The Nova is a 100% Romanian design, started in 1983 and the only part of the car of Renault origin are its Cléon OHV engines. Whilst the styling is not dissimilar to the Peugeot 309, there is no commonality between it and the Nova.

The car was a small hatchback, with front wheel drive, 5-doors and 5 seats. The newest engine appeared in 1998 and was called the GTi. It was the GT engine that was upgraded with a Bosch MonoMotronic injection, thus reducing the GT's high consumption which was originally equipped with a two barrel carburator.[2][3]
