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.

We’d recommend going for Expression trim if you can. It’s still astonishing value but comes with lots of extra toys over entry-level Essential, including rear parking sensors, automatic lights and windscreen wipers, keyless entry and a touchscreen infotainment system.
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.
