Introduction

What Car? says...

The Dacia Sandero Stepway isn’t a fiendish new exercise machine – it’s an SUV-themed small hatchback at a very competitive price.

It's based on the regular Dacia Sandero but gets a more heavily sculpted bonnet, roof rails, chunky plastic wheel arch extensions, an increased ride height and bumpers with integrated skidplates – all additions that are well suited to the urban jungle. There are just three trim levels to pick from, and no options apart from colour and a few dealer-fit accessories.

So does this bargain basement price bring any inherent compromises? Over the next few pages of this Dacia Sandero Stepway review, we’ll tell you how peppy it is, whether it’s geared for comfort or cornering, how practical it is, and whether it can compete with the best small cars.

If you decide that the Sandero Stepway – or any other new make and model – is the car for you, our free What Car? New Car Buying service gives you a hassle and haggle-free way to search for big savings, and has some of the best new Dacia deals.
