Ever wondered what the cheapest new car you can buy is? Well, here’s your answer: the Dacia Sandero.
You get plenty of space for your small outlay, too, because the Sandero is one of the roomiest cars in the small car class, both for people and their luggage. It’s available as a five-door only, but there’s a range of engines and trims to choose from.
The trade-off is a distinctly last-generation cabin, a meagre list of standard equipment, particularly for the entry-level model, and driving dynamics that aren’t quite up there with more expensive rivals, such as the Ford Fiesta and Skoda Fabia.
So, is the Sandero a bargain, or would you be better stretching your budget a little for the rival Ford Ka+? Read on over the next few pages for our in depth impressions, and to find out which engines and trims make the most sense.
