What Car? says...

You won’t find a cheaper new car in the UK than the Dacia Sandero. The cheap and cheerful hatchback is no-frills motoring at its simplest; just don’t expect it to feel anything other than a budget car.

There are still lots of things to like about it, though. An incredibly spacious interior for the class is a major plus, along with its bargain price tag.

To add some crossover-style allure to the Sandero, Dacia also offers the Sandero Stepway – a slightly more rugged version of the Sandero hatchback with a ride height that’s raised by 40mm, roof bars and some styling tweaks to separate it from the standard hatch.

Choice in the line-up is nice and simple: there is one petrol and one diesel engine, along with two trims.

The alterations mean it’s more expensive than the standard hatch. While the Sandero Stepway does not have the headline-grabbing starting price the hatchback boasts, does it actually represent better value? Read on to find out.
