Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used Dacia Sandero hatchback?

This is the point where the Dacia Sandero struggles; when you look at the rivals you can buy for similar money, the cost-cutting measures used to make it a cheap new car start to make it a poor-value used purchase.

The ubiquity of the Ford Fiesta means there are thousands available for sale at any given time, which means finding a good one is child’s play. It is widely regarded as one of the best used small cars and is definitely worth the small premium you will have to pay in order to get into one.

Overview

It's true that if you want a spacious A to B car, then the Sandero fits the bill. But there are far better and more modern alternative used small cars around for the same money that are a lot better buy.

  • Economical 0.9 TCE engine
  • Surprisingly spacious
  • You won’t have to read the manual
  • Nothing special to drive
  • Interior feels cheap
  • Entry-level version is very basic
