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. For practicality, it’s actually one of the best in the class. 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.

Entry-level Essential trim comes well equipped, especially for its low price. It includes body-coloured bumpers, 15in wheels with wheel trims, automatic LED headlights, cruise control with a speed limiter, manual air conditioning, DAB radio, Bluetooth and front electric windows.

This is a slightly more powerful version of the TCe three-cylinder, but can also run on LPG. You can switch between petrol and LPG using a switch next to your knee or you can let the system automatically switch between the two fuel sources. With both tanks brimmed, it offers a range of over 800 miles. With 99bhp (compared to the TCe 90’s 89bhp) it feels quite a bit punchier throughout the rev range.
