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.

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 turbocharged three-cylinder engine is the entry-point for the Stepway. It’s punchy enough and pretty economical if rather noisy.
