Da­cia San­dero: Own­ers’ ver­dict

YOU TELL US Su­per­mini is cheap to run, but poor in most other re­spects

Auto Express - - CONTENTS -

What’s Bri­tain’s cheap­est car like to live with?

GOOD

“US­ING Eco mode helps give the San­dero good fuel econ­omy.”

“Soft sus­pen­sion ab­sorbs even the largest pot­holes.”

“The heat­ing and air­con are both ef­fec­tive.”

“Brakes are easy to mod­u­late and re­sist fade well.”

“It’s rel­a­tively cheap, but it doesn’t look it from the out­side.”

“The DAB ra­dio and Blue­tooth con­nec­tion work re­li­ably.”

“No new car of a sim­i­lar size can com­pete with the San­dero’s value.”

NOT SO GOOD

“AC­CEL­ER­A­TION from the en­try-level en­gine is un­der­whelm­ing.”

“There is quite a bit of wind noise when driv­ing at speed.”

“Sound from the stereo dis­torts at higher vol­umes.”

“I know you get what you pay for, but I wish I had specced air-con.”

“The cheap in­te­rior bore the brunt of Da­cia’s cost cut­ting.”

“I get false alarms from the seat­belt re­minder.”

“Boot is big, but this comes at the ex­pense of rear legroom.”
