This is the all-new Dacia Sandero!
You won’t find a new car for sale in the UK this year for less money, with prices starting at just under £8,000! With that in mind, Mat’s on hand to find out whether the Sandero is cheap (i.e. poor quality & one to avoid) or affordable (i.e. good quality and one to consider).
Of course, if you’re in the market for a car in this price bracket, you know there won’t be too many frills, and that’s no clearer than with the engine choices. If you go for the entry level you’ll be greeted by a 1-litre 3 cylinder which can produce just 65hp. It also only comes with a five-speed manual gearbox! Clearly then you'll look to upgrade, with the other engine available being a 1-litre turbo, which can produce 90hp. Thankfully this one comes with a six-speed gearbox, which can even be upgraded to automatic!
However, despite the lack of thrills, the interior is more than impressive enough. Top of the range models coming with an infotainment screen which even allows a wireless connection to Apple CarPlay & Android Auto. Mat even finds the seats more impressive than some £40,000+ cars he's sat in recently (but you'll have to watch the video to find out what car he's talking about).
So what do you think - is the new Sandero cheap, or affordable? There's only one way to find out... Keep watching for Mat's latest in-depth review!

  • I dont like this car for 2 reasons. There is no space to the left of the clutch to rest your foot and also the gearbox isnt the best. It just doesnt feel good when shifting. Ok maybe 3 reasons but it may just be my instructors car. If you turn over a certain amount then the steering wheel wont self centre. Overall my 500 pound vw polo is more fun to drive.

  • As an avid Dacia Duster 4WD fan, this is likewise a great example of a practical, no-nonsense, inexpensive and affordable-to-own car. If regularly serviced and lovingly maintained and kept for as long as she runs, it'll be more than worth it's buying price, and that's not something that can be said for most cars today. As Borat would say, "I like!". About the Kingdom of Dacia: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dacia

  • I've owned and driven a 15 plate Sandero Laureate for the last 2.5 years and loved it. Just bought a brand new Sandero Stepway Comfort auto. Looking forward to delivery. Love the car hate the video. It seems that most car review videos are produced by petrol heads who test drive a normal family car with the same distaste as someone who has just stepped in dog shit.

There are so many people out there that can't take the jab for medical reasons Ect, and yet this obvious barefaced shaming continues. It's about time this discrimination was stopped now!! Used to subscribe to this channel, never again.😠😠
