Trim: Essential

This trim makes the most sense. It’s still sensibly priced but gets important features such as air-conditioning, a DAB radio, remote central locking, electric front windows and Bluetooth.

Engine: 1.5 Blue dCi

The only diesel option available in the Sandero lineup. It has plenty of low-end pulling power, but is still slower than the 0.9-litre petrol in an outright dash, and it's the most expensive choice in the range.
