How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

The Dacia Sandero is one of the biggest cars in the small car category. In fact, it almost matches the Honda Jazz for head room and actually beats it for leg room.

The Sandero's interior is relatively broad, too. In short, you’d have to be mighty big to feel cramped (some of our testers are well over six feet tall and didn’t have any problems).

Boot space

While the design of the Sandero's boot could be improved by reducing the size of the lip at the entrance, you can’t argue with its size.

Officially, you get 328 litres of space below the parcel shelf, and we managed to fit six carry-on suitcases inside. That's more than in any other car in the class, including the Tardis-like Jazz.

There's some exposed bodywork around the boot entrance that's easy to scuff and scratch when lifting heavy items in and out (we'd recommend investing in some protective film to stop that happening).
