Used Dacia Sandero 2013-present review

Which used Dacia Sandero hatchback should I buy?

The 1.5 dCi would be good for those looking for fuel economy, but it is rather noisy and it sends plenty of vibrations through the pedals and steering wheel.

The 0.9-litre turbocharged three-cylinder petrol is our favourite because it copes better with the large (by small car standards) body of the Sandero, but you will need to step up to mid-spec Ambiance to get it.

That’s no hardship, though, because Ambiance is the version we’d choose; the entry-level Access is a little too stingy for our liking. Upgrading gets you get a radio for starters, plus Bluetooth, a tyre-pressure monitor and electric front windows. Facelifted Ambiance cars added air-conditioning to this list and a DAB radio.

Laureate was the only version to get air-conditioning as standard from launch. It also gives you electrically adjustable and heated door mirrors, cruise control, trip computer, height adjustable driver’s seat and rear electric windows. Alloys were an option, as was the 7.0in touchscreen navigation system. Unless you really want a Sandero with all this stuff, you might as well stick with Ambiance.
