DACIA Sandero review

NGC verdict 08.03.2013

More than half of Dacia Sandero buyers are expected to opt for the Stepway version with its off-roader look and raised ride height. Prices will be from £7,995 to £10,795 when it arrives in UK showrooms in May. Extra fittings such as body-coloured bumpers and mirrors, fog lamps and metallic paint as standard, for not a lot of extra money, makes the car look better value than the standard hatchback if you want/ need that sort of look. It certainly could help the Dacia hold its value better.

The car's warranty can be extended for up to seven years (100,000 miles) for an extra £850. Sandero has not yet been tested in the EuroNCAP crash tests (the 2008 version scored three stars out of five) but all versions have driver and passenger front and side airbags, anti-lock brakes, front seatbelt pre-tensioners, ISOFIX anchorage points for child seats, rear door child locks, electronic stability control, traction control and daytime running lights as standard.
