Why Lease A Dacia Sandero?

How Does It Drive?
Another big drawcard for the Sandero is its practical 5-door hatchback layout. The Kia Picanto and Volkswagen Up are truncated little city cars – the Sandero meanwhile can seat 4 adults in comfort and they won’t have to carry their bags on their laps.
The front seats offer enough adjustment for even the tallest occupants to get comfortable, and there are 2 cupholders and a pair of large door bins for bottles and wallets. All but the base Access trim has a height-adjustable driver’s seat.
The rear seats are far more accommodating than anything else in this class, while the attendant doors open wide enough to easily get kids in and out of baby seats. The rear door pockets are slightly smaller but can still take a 1-litre water bottle.
The boot is decently sized too, offering 328 litres with the rear seats up. That puts it somewhere in the top half of the small hatchback (supermini) segment and way ahead of any similarly priced city car rivals.
The Sandero is all about low running costs and the 3 available engines all offer impressive fuel economy figures. Both the 65- and 90hp 1.0-litre engines return 53.3mpg, while adding an automatic gearbox to the 90hp variant brings this figure down to 47.8mpg.
The 100hp Bi-Fuel model is a bit different because it can be run on Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG) as well as petrol, which in theory can make it more economical. Overall consumption is between 38.2- and 52.3mpg depending on which fuel is in use – the saving is made because LPG is far cheaper than petrol. It is, however, worth bearing in mind that there are far fewer LPG filling points (slightly more than 1000) in the UK than petrol stations (of which there are more than 8000).
Dacia Sandero HatchbackThis is the standard 5-door hatchback body style.
The Dacia Sandero Vs Competitors
The Sandero is based on the Renault Clio, which has a solid reliability record. The Sandero comes with a 3-year/100,000-mile warranty as standard, as well as roadside assistance for the same period.
You get 3 trim levels here. We would suggest opting for the Essential trim as it adds air conditioning, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, cruise control and smartphone connectivity to the audio system.
The base trim does not offer parking sensors. You will have to pick the top-most Comfort specification level, which offers rear parking sensors and camera.
The Dacia Sandero offers enough space inside for 4 adults and more boot space than most rivals in its class. There are 2 cupholders up front and all doors have usefully sized door pockets. There is a USB slot in the dash, but rear passengers only get access to a 12-volt socket. This means you will need an adapter to charge your mobile device.
The Sandero is based on an existing design (the capable Renault Clio), which lowers development costs, and it is devoid of any fancy optional extras that could push up the price.
