What alternatives should I consider to a used Dacia Sandero hatchback?
If you want a more entertaining drive, the Ford Fiesta is a standout in the class. A three-year-old low-spec example should set you back around the same amount of cash as our favourite, high-spec Sandero. So, while still affordable, the Fiesta loses to the Sandero in terms of value for money.
For something comfier and more stylish – but also more expensive – consider the Peugeot 208. And if you’d like an affordable small car that’s a great all-rounder, the Seat Ibiza is one of our favourites.
