Often the verdict for a car costing this little would be ‘cheap but not great’. Not here, though. For practicality, it’s actually one of the best in the class. If you go for Expression trim with the TCe 90 or TCe 100 Bi-Fuel engine, you'll have a great all-round package for very little outlay. Only a disappointing Euro NCAP safety score lets the side down.
The trimSee full equipment
Even with entry-level Essential trim, you get a respectable amount of standard kit. That includes body-coloured bumpers, 15in steel wheels with wheel trims, cruise control, front electric windows and air conditioning.
The engineSee full engine specs
Offers up a respectable 89bhp and has a six-speed manual gearbox standard (although you can pay extra for an automatic). Performance isn't the Sandero's strongest suit, but in our tests it managed 0-60mph in 11.0sec.
