Review

The Sandero Stepway is a fine small car at a scarcely believable price. With plenty of space for people and a bigger boot than some cars costing twice as much, it’s a real steal. That’s especially true given the willing engines and comfortable ride that make whiling away the miles a pleasant experience. The Euro NCAP safety rating is disappointing, though.

get the best price

Essential trim gives you just that, with wheel trims, air conditioning electric front windows, cruise control and remote central locking along with a basic infotainment system without a touchscreen.

This is a slightly more powerful version of the three-cylinder engine that can also run on cheap LPG. It’s smoother and quieter with a little more verve, so we’d recommend it.
