That seemed extremely cheap for a car in the Nissan Juke class.

The Duster was on the short list for European Car of the Year this year and should have won it over the Vauxhall Ampera.

Space in the back isn’t all that great – you can tell that the Sandero is based on an older platform, as modern rivals leave it trailing by some distance in this respect. Taller children will soon complain about the limited space, while it can be a struggle to squeeze in bulky child seats.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to retrospectively change your fulfilling dealership on your order. If you wish to make this change, you will need to cancel your order by calling Customer Services on 0344 335 1111*. You will then receive a refund of your order deposit. You will then need to resubmit a order, following the standard procedure.

Alternatives at this price are difficult to pin down, because the entry-level Dacia Sandero undercuts even the cheapest city cars, such as the Skoda Citigo and Vauxhall Viva, yet offers much more space. Even mid-range or high-spec models cost less to buy than basic versions of the best choices in the supermini class, like the Ford Fiesta and Volkswagen Polo.

We have driven the Duster. It is quite basic inside and the plastic trim is not particularly good quality.

£5,995 only buys the entry-level access model which only comes in white.

This gave an overall score of 3 stars (EuroNCAP take the lowest score from the four categories to determine the overall star rating).

The Sandero is supplied with a three-year/60,000-mile warranty, which includes roadside recovery. For £395, buyers can extend this to five years and 60,000 miles, or they can spend £850 to increase the cover to seven years and 100,000 miles.

One of the major drawbacks of the Dacia Sandero will become apparent to tall drivers and front seat passengers about an hour into any long journey. The front seats – again taken from a Renault Clio from the turn of the century – are quite narrow across the base and force you to adopt a slightly perched up position. This means it doesn’t take long for backsides to become numb.

The switchgear feels old-fashioned, and oddly placed - the electric window switches seem to be dotted everywhere.

Then there’s the Ambiance and Laureate, both of which come with the diesel engine but have a choice of two and four-wheel drive.

You could upgrade to the 1.5 dCi diesel – again, an engine some buyers will be familiar with from the Renault line-up. This will add a full £1,000 to the price of TCe models, though, and in a car where every penny counts, there’s not really much point spending the extra.

Dacia Sandero achieved a 4* EuroNCAP rating in the recent tests. Like all Dacia models, New Sandero is a safe vehicle. Its cabin has been engineered to serve as a ‘survival cell’ with a programmed crumple zone, while ABS, ESC, front airbags and ISOFIX anchorage are standard passive safety features. Additionally, all versions of Sandero are fitted with Electronic Stability Control and Daytime Running Lights as standard.

We also know that the Duster will be very affordable. A bargain even.

An extended warranty can be purchased at any time up until one year after the first date of registration.

It’s a lightweight, hi-tech engine with advances such as a light-pressure turbo and multipoint fuel injection. And in use it revs freely and is very willing, not to mention refined. Mind you, that refinement from under the bonnet does show up how noisy the Sandero is in other areas, with tyre roar and wind noise letting the side down. 

Col Minessota4 months ago

The gearshift feels old-fashioned, and the car isn't very refined especially at speed.

Dacia Logan alarm fault

The Ambience and Laureate trims make much more sense.

Pete_W4 months ago

Since then, the car has become a little more sophisticated. While the entry-level Sandero Access grabs the headlines with its bargain price, as well as its plain white paint, black bumpers and basic equipment list, there’s now a top-spec Laureate Prime version with colour-coded seatbelts and a touchscreen sat-nav. In between, buyers also have a choice of Ambiance and Laureate trim levels.

R2_Amazeballs4 months ago

Still, the ride quality is really impressive. This is down to the relatively small wheels and high-profile tyres, and the fact that Dacia never set out to give the Sandero sporty responses.

R2_Amazeballs4 months ago

While the Sandero isn’t the biggest car in the world, Dacia’s designers have come up with a good packaging compromise that sees it deliver a reasonable amount of interior space.

The four models commercialised in the UK (Sandero, Sandero Stepway, Logan MCV and Duster) have been selected because they are the most appropriate for the British market.

Anyone who drove a Renault in the late nineties or early noughties will feel right at home inside the Dacia Sandero. The instruments appear to be taken from a 1999 Clio, the column stalks from a 2001 Scenic, and the hazard lights and central locking buttons from an old Laguna. It would be unforgivable from other brands, but this is exactly how Dacia keeps its prices so low. Everything works fine, so why would you worry about where it comes from or what it looks like? 

Corrie19994 months ago

Shorter, slimmer occupants won’t notice it quite so quickly, but it’s one of the areas where we wish Dacia had invested a bit more; most customers would surely be prepared to pay a little extra for more comfort.

The 1.6-litre petrol engine only produces 105bhp and isn’t the cleanest or most refined engine.

Dacia holds production facilities across the globe, including Romania and Morocco. UK versions of Dacia Duster and Logan MCV are built in Pitesti, in Romania. UK versions of Dacia Sandero and Sandero Stepway are built in Tangiers, in Morocco.
