New £8k Dacia Sandero vs Ka+
Dacia has updated its budget small car, and it faces a strong new five-door rival from Ford
SINCE its return to the UK market nearly five years ago, Dacia has proven a surprise hit.
The brand’s blend of value pricing and a no-nonsense buying experience has won it a whole legion of fans, while models such as the Sandero have served up new car peace of mind at used car prices. However, even Dacia knows it needs more than low costs to keep buyers interested, so it has treated its entry-level model to a mid-life refresh.
Tweaked looks, revised engines and extra kit aim to boost the Sandero’s showroom appeal, but crucially, the valuefor-money pricing remains unchanged. Has Dacia’s new Sandero done enough to topple the talented new Ford Ka+?
