+ Ten Second Review
New Dacia Sandero - Ten Second Review

The Dacia Sandero line-up offers Britain's cheapest new cars, wrapped within a 5-door hatchback that delivers accommodation for 5 adults. Sandero's big bonus - worthy of a city banker - is delivered by generous luggage capacity, stretching well beyond its official supermini classification. Here we're testing the version most British buyers will probably want, the 1.5-litre dCi diesel.
+ Background
New Dacia Sandero - Background

Renault has brought budget airline sales tactics to British car buyers with the proven European success of their Romanian Dacia brand. Since 2004, they've sold over 2 million vehicles across 36 countries and Britain is another keen customer. Founded in 1966 and bought out by Renault in 1999, the chief attraction of any Dacia [officially pronounced Datch-ya] comes in bargain basement prices and a respected durability record.

In this case we think size matters. You'll find plenty of competitively priced supermini and city-sized 5-doors, but none bring the space race benefits of Sandero's rump. True, some acclaimed designs - Chevrolet's Aveo and Kia's respected Rio - approach Sandero space levels. Then you also discover their inflexible pricing, thousands beyond Dacia's progressive steps, well below established hatchback territory. The fight for new car value below £10,000 usually features entry-level specials from the establishment or unfamiliar names from Asia and Eastern Europe. Today's trusted supermini brands - from Ford's Fiesta and Vauxhall's Corsa to Volkswagen's Polo - may hint at £10,000 in 3-door bodies, but 5-doors and more sophisticated derivatives zoom beyond £15,000.

So, it is hard to position Sandero's spacious hatchback with citycar pricing and accommodation above its price and class. Let's drive the 1.5 dCi diesel version and see if it makes an equally individual case at the wheel...
+ Driving Experience
New Dacia Sandero - Driving Experience

You don't expect much in the way of a memorable environment and driving experience when the reason for a brand's existence is aggressively low pricing. Yet that absolutely does not mean you should accept anything less than safe and efficient transportation: both of occupants and any reasonable load that needs to be elsewhere with minimal hassle. The good news is that Dacia does hatchback motoring with traces of joie de vivre from its French parenthood.

The Laureate-trimmed diesel derivative I tried should represent the ultimate in Sandero motoring. However, expect 0-62 mph to take a second longer in this diesel than in the turbo TCe 0.9-litre petrol model that will save you £1,000, while top speed is a couple of mph down at 107mph. What matters though, is that the diesel has so much more pulling power at lower engine revs than any other derivative. So instant mid range acceleration, which you typically need on Britain's crowded roads, is much better than the statistics reveal. The diesel can be coarse compared to the petrol units, especially in motorway use, but most Dacia drivers accept gruff manners in return for such excellent fuel consumption and range.

I can't see anybody buying into the Dacia deal wanting to hurl this hatchback into unlikely cornering antics, but we all want a feeling of security over varying surfaces and a variety of conditions. This Dacia is far from the worst we've tried, scooting around our winding roads competently and I certainly never felt the low cost had literally cut corners.
+ Design And Build
New Dacia Sandero - Design and Build

This is a very space-efficient 5-door design, one assembled in Romania around proven parts to offer exceptional interior people and luggage accommodation. Let's face it, buyers in this category are not after the ultimate style statement, but Sanderos do the functional look, with a hint of toughness allied to that deliberately chunky outline. Walking around the outside, you see a silhouette that is not so streamlined as the latest designs, but that offers significant interior space benefits.

The cabin does a gallant job of trying to welcome you with a chunky 3-spoke steering wheel and surprisingly informative instrumentation that includes a rev-counter even on the basic model. The company claim Sandero is, 'as spacious as models from a class above', which is just about right. Take the 316-litre boot, bigger than that of a Ford Focus. If you need more, a bumper 1200-litres is presented as the rear seats drop forward, although they don't fold totally flat.

Naturally, Dacia's people are just as enthusiastic about the high roofline cabin. Here, the headroom measures just 3mm short of a Ford Fiesta with a 20mm bonus over Vauxhall's Corsa. Headroom, front shoulder and rear elbow room all meet class and beyond benchmarks. Is there enough rear legroom? Well the Corsa is notably inferior in this department and the Fiesta cannot beat the low cost champion from Romania either.
+ Market And Model
New Dacia Sandero - Market and Model

Sanderos are simply available in 5-door hatchback bodies in three trim levels - Access, Ambiance and Laureate. They typically cost from £6,000 but for a diesel 1.5-litre dCi variant like the one I tested, you're going to need somewhere between £8,500 and £10,000, depending upon the model you choose. That represents a £1,000 premium over the equivalent 0.9 TCe petrol unit which also puts out the same 90bhp output. Essentially the same vehicle is also sold as a Sandero Stepway. For less than £1,000 more than the equivalent Sandero hatchback, this variant gives you a more rugged look and a boost in ground clearance.

All Sanderos offer power assisted steering, an engine immobiliser (though not an alarm), tinted glass and a heated rear window with wash/wipe. Plus a useful 12volt power socket, 4-speed ventilation and a front glove box. This Dacia also serves up some useful driver prompts, covering a rev-counter and a gearshift indicator, aiding fuel-efficient driving.

With the diesel, trim levels start with mid-range Ambiance spec that includes a useful ECO mode button allowing you to squeeze more from every gallon of fuel. Plus there are powered front windows and remote central locking, which is coupled to an automatic door locking layout. A boost in cabin comforts covers radio/CD/MP3 player and uprated connectivity through Bluetooth, plus a USB port. Every Sandero is supplied with driver and passenger airbags, plus side airbags in the front and all the expected electronic stability, braking and traction aids.
+ Cost Of Ownership
New Dacia Sandero - Cost of Ownership

The dCi 90 Sandero variant I tried certainly delivers low emissions hatchback motoring putting out just 99g/km of CO2 and returning 74.3mpg on the combined cycle. That's around 20mpg better than any petrol Sandero can manage, meaning that the 50-gallon tank's range of 830 miles is 200 miles more than you'd manage in any petrol Sandero. As ever though, the upfront diesel price premium (£1,000 in this case over the equivalently powerful 0.9-litre TCe petrol model) means that diesel makes most sense for the motorist in for high mileages.

As for the warranty, well Dacia offers an industry standard 3-year/60,000 miles guarantee from the showroom, backed by roadside assistance. For some £400 more, you can extend the cover by two years .For twice as much, you can up the period covered to a Kia-equalling 7 years and 100,000 miles. Dacia feel they have a very strong case to make when discussing insurance rates, citing Groups between 2 and 10 depending on model, choosing to highlight those rates against those of Kia's Rio [3-8].

The Sandero's routine maintenance is pretty average, demanded at 12,000-miles/1 year, whichever falls first. Because of big brother Renault's established presence in the UK, it's reckoned the Dacia service network reaches out to over 86% of the British public, who are 30 miles or less from their nearest dealer.
+ Summary
New Dacia Sandero - Summary

Here we have an accommodating hatchback costing the same as many diminutive city cars, yet it can transport 5 adults and as much luggage as some middleweight hatchbacks of twice the price. Remarkable.

We all deserved the Dacia deal to set some fresh benchmarks for low purchase prices, sparking customer interest and debate all round. I would like to see a higher Euro NCAP safety rating prominent on Dacia's 'To Do' list. That aside, the Sandero demonstrates that cheapest does not mean shoddy, offering proven durability and useable cabin space way ahead of its low cost rivals. Naturally, there are flaws but they need not be deal breakers if customers stick to ordering what they need - rather than trying to dress up this Dacia with options beyond the Sandero's purpose.

As for this diesel dCi 90 variant, well a £1,000 premium over the equivalent TCe petrol unit is reasonable and the fuel and CO2 returns are compelling. It's the version of this Dacia that I would choose, were I to want this Sandero. A little surprisingly, at the end of my week with this car, I thought I just might.
