Why Lease A Dacia?
Dacia is a Romanian car brand known for its value for money. Part of the Renault Nissan Mitsubishi Alliance, it prides itself on offering practical cars at affordable prices. So if you’re looking to lease a quality car on a budget, a Dacia might just be the one for you.
Dacia was formed in 1966 and is named after a region in Romania. It was sold by the Romanian Government to what was then called Groupe Renault in 1999. Now the biggest company in Romania, Dacia cars and commercial vehicles make up a huge chunk of the country’s exports. They’re sold in countries around the world, but particularly in Europe and they started producing cars for the UK in 2013.
Today, Dacia offers a relatively small selection of vehicles, but they’re designed to cater for a wide audience. The cars are built with minimal frills but maintain a level of quality. Thanks to its owners, most Dacias share parts and technology with Renault and its low leasing costs often mean that its cars are considered alongside more premium cars. Very few carmakers can offer as much bang for your buck.

The Range Of Dacia Cars
Dacia’s range is fairly small compared with a lot of car manufacturers. At the time of writing, it has just three models on the market, two of which are variants of the same car.
Because of the price positioning, Dacia sticks to relatively simple engine technology. There are no hybrid or electric offerings, just straightforward petrol and diesel options. It does, however, make a petrol engine that can also run on LPG, called the TCe Bi-Fuel. This could save you quite a bit of money on fuel, although it’s much harder to find LPG pumps in the UK than it is to find petrol.
Most Dacias have manual gearboxes with either five speeds or six. However, you can also get some engines with a CVT automatic. This is a different kind of technology from a regular gearbox, and doesn’t actually have individual gears. CVTs can be very fuel-efficient and you don’t have to drive any differently from a regular automatic gearbox.
As well as the CVT, Dacia offers another automatic gearbox called the EDC. This uses two clutches for faster, smoother shifts.
While most Dacias are front-wheel drive, you can order the Dacia Duster with 4-wheel drive.
