Austerity Europe has warmly embraced Dacia – it’s been Europe’s fastest-growing car brand for eight years on the trot. And now, understandably, cash-strapped UK seems equally keen for a dash of Dacia.

Dacia has a strict no discounts policy. But that does make the buying process simpler, and you'll still pay a lot more for any other new car that offers the same sort of space.

Turn into a bend at even modest speeds and the Sandero flops over on to its outside wheels in a rather uncontrolled way.

We have had a Nissan Note top spec for the last 7 years, can’t fault it, other than the cost of fuel and road tax which the Stepway will reduce dramatically!!

That’s why we reckon it’s worth upgrading to the Ambiance, which fixes these problems, and brings remote door locking, electric front windows, a Bluetooth hands-free phone connection and a USB socket that lets you connect up an iPod.

Wonderful blog you have here but I was wanting to know if you knew of any community forums that cover the same topics talked about in this article? I’d really like to be a part of group where I can get advice from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Thank you!

As for the foot rest, of course its needed, even space to the left of the pedal for your foot would help. They have this sorted on left hand drive examples, the right hand drive versions have very poor pedal layout.

The dCi engine is a K9K. This engine is fitted in the Clio, Modus, Nissan Note and Qashkai. It is a superb modern diesel. Mine has done 83000 miles in a Note and never goes below 58 mpg. The roof rails on the Stepway will knock a couple of mpg off that. Seriously considering this Dacia as a replacement for the well loved Note.

Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using? I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

The greatest thing about the new Dacia Sandero is that Dacia doesn’t force you into paying for a load of stuff that you don’t need.

Its very happy and very stable on cruise control at 85 mph.! Yes a tiny tiny bit of wind noise at speed (but it has roof rails) so it will do, As do all cars with roof rails.!

Happy Birthday for last week. It’s mine today, but I don’t have ‘the builders in’ or a cheap car that faintly resembles a Stormtrooper’s helmet.

So after 10 months and just over 16,000 miles the Duster has driven off my driveway for the last time. Will I miss it? Well, yes and certainly much more than I thought I would when it arrived. Frankly, the honeymoon period with the Duster – immediately christened The White Car – lasted up to the moment I first drove it.

Fireboy4 months ago

Maybe it's because it’s white, angular, rugged and (relatively) cheap. Whatever the reason, I’ve adopted a uniquely emotionless approach to the Duster, the first time I’ve done so with a long-term car. In much the same way as a fridge does its job of keeping produce cold, so the Duster carries out its role of moving me from here to there.

Corrie19994 months ago

More upmarket versions are available, with upgraded trim, more powerful engines and better kit levels, but the price predictably begins escalating to around, or above, that of more mainstream and desirable alternatives like the smaller but more appealing Skoda Citigo or the similarly sized but less well kitted out Ford Fiesta.

It must really confuse your neighbours, Conti GT to Dacia in a week! Perhaps they’ll think you’ve been involved in selling fake bomb detectors or something (or is that too topical for Sniff?) Happy Birthday BTW

Whilst Patrick Moore sat fuming under West Country cloud cover and the nuns in the convent we stayed in cowered under their chapel pews fearing the arrival of the Devil himself, I stood next to the local priest on a sun-baked hill-top in Transylvania and, through a welder’s helmet, watched the entire, astonishing spectacle unfurl.

I bought one of these in the end, great little car, cant fault it, drives well, £150 a year to insure fully comp, £20 a year road tax, 60+ mpg, loving it.

Greetings from Ohio! I’m bored to tears at work so I decided to check out your site on my iphone during lunch break. I really like the info you present here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m amazed at how quick your blog loaded on my phone .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, good blog!

Sure. The carpets show a little margin at some trims, the finish has some distinct plastic involved but it’s certainly no lada, I’ve seen a 64plate Landy with worse carpets, and the new C2 with more chrome and platic.

This design is steller! You definitely know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Fantastic job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

I ignored the cabin’s blandness and appreciated instead its hard-wearing functionality and space. Despite the best efforts of children, dogs and muddy bikes, it stood up well to a lot of punishment. What the hard plastics lacked in tactility they more than made up for in ruggedness. It didn’t have a generous list of goodies, but it ticked the must-have boxes with Bluetooth, air-con, central-locking and iPod-ready audio.

The Access model only comes with a 1.2 litre 74bhp petrol engine. And only in white. And only with black bumpers, door handles and mirrors.

While prices for the Duster start at a meagre £8,995, we’ve opted for the flagship model, the diesel-powered Laureate with four-wheel drive, weighing in at £14,995. For that you get the pick of the range and pretty much everything you need – switchable 4x4, aircon, Bluetooth, alloy wheels, anti-lock with traction and stability controls, leccy door mirrors and a decent iPod-compatible audio system. All that, yet it’s still the UK’s cheapest 4x4 by far.

Corrie19994 months ago

And I appreciated its reliability. Bar a front driveshaft that failed – a faulty component that was quickly and politely replaced under warranty by Seward Renault of Portsmouth (who also undertook its first service for £195.91) – the Duster performed faultlessly.

Renault-owned Dacia is the motoring equivalent of Tesco’s value range, offering products with bargain-basement prices and no-frills packaging. This Sandero hatchback is a prime example.

Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

But the Sandero is one of the most interesting cars that we’ve ever tested.

In other news, my wife has declared the Duster to be her favourite of all my long-term cars. Surprising, given the C-class, MX-5 and Clio Trophy that have gone before. She loves the raised driving position, and, well, that’s enough to rocket the Duster to number one.

Matchmaker14 months ago

This is in no way a criticism. I don’t expect my fridge to wash my clothes, and I don’t expect the Dacia to do anything else other than move me about.

The car talked about here is a Dacia Sandero Stepway Laureate dCi 90. It has a 1.5-litre turbo diesel engine making 89bhp. It can go from 0-62 in 11.8 seconds and on to 104mph. This model costs £10,795.
