Often the verdict for a car costing this little would be ‘cheap but not great’. Not here, though, because the Dacia Sandero is a fine small car to spend time in and is actually above average in many areas. For practicality, it’s actually one of the best in the class. Entry-level Access trim is a bit too stripped out for most people, but the top level Comfort trim with either the TCe 90 or TCe 100 Bi-Fuel engine is a great all-round package for very little outlay. Only a disappointing Euro NCAP safety score lets the side down.get the best price

Entry-level Access trim is ultra-cheap but you get ugly black bumpers, steel wheels and no air-conditioning or central locking. You do get electric front windows and LED headlights, so it’s not all bad.

This naturally aspirated 1.0-litre has just 64bhp. Even without driving it (we’ll let you know when we have) we are pretty confident it’ll be slow (0-62mph takes a pedestrian 16.7sec) and worth avoiding. Officially it offers the same economy and emissions as the more expensive TCe 90.
