SAND SCHOOL (used) 02/12/2020

By Jonathan Crouch

Introduction

Dacia's Sandero set out to completely change the way family folk thought about budgeting for a compact family five-door car. When new, it was half the cost of many similarly sized models and surprisingly class-competitive in many areas given the 'shockingly affordable' prices being asked. Dacia gave the car a little more polish with a facelift in 2017 - and that's the version of this car that we look at here as a potential used buy.

Models

Models Covered: 5-door hatch [1.0, 1.2 petrol / 1.5 dCi diesel]

History

At launch back in early 2013, probably the biggest issue with the original Sandero was its entry-level petrol engine, a thirsty 1.2-litre unit dating back to the last century. A modern downsized 1.0-litre powerplant took that unit's place as part of this 2017 facelift, introduced alongside a range of cabin upgrades supposed to make the interior feel less like an Armenian thrift store. Otherwise, apart from a minor exterior update, things were much as before, which meant that customers still got a model nearly as big as a Focus-sized family hatch for less than the price of a tiny citycar. Little wonder that Dacia quickly became Europe's fastest-growing automotive manufacturer. It was first founded in 1966, but the company only really took off when acquired by Renault in 1999 as an ultra-affordable brand for developing markets. It was for these countries that its first modern era product, the Logan saloon, was launched in 2004. Costing a mere 5,000 euros, it sold like hot cakes, encouraging the marque to launch a five-door version four years later, badged the Sandero. By now, the bigger more sophisticated European countries were surprising Renault management by also clamouring for Dacias, a demand that took so long to satisfy that it wasn't until early 2013 that the brand could be properly launched here. By then, a second generation Sandero had been launched, a smarter step up from the spartan original with more modern engineware and more up-to-date equipment. The pricing approach though was familiar, thousands of pounds lower than similarly sized competitors, delivering to British buyers a new car for less than the price of many comparable used ones. The facelift in 2017 carried the Sandero through to late 2020, when a new generation design was announced.

What You Get

To understand the styling of this car, you also have to understand the way it was originally sold. In most cases in the UK, Dacia models sat in the corner of Renault showrooms. Important then, that designs from this Romanian brand could be seen as a fundamentally different proposition from their pricier Renault counterparts. The post-2017-era facelift changes to this car are most obvious at the front, where smarter double optic headlights borrowed from the brand's Duster SUV incorporate LED daytime running lights featuring a pattern of four stacked rectangles. These flank a re-styled grille featuring a honeycomb design and chromed bars flowing out from the central badge. And at the wheel? This was an area of the car which saw buyers of the original model having to manage their expectations to a considerable degree. In 2017, Dacia responded to customer feedback by re-siting the electric window switches from the centre stack to a more familiar position on the doors. Plus a 12v socket was added and the quality of upholstery fabrics much improved. What else? Well the boxy shape makes all-round visibility much better than it is on other more slinkily-styled supermini models, particularly when it comes to over-the-shoulder vision. As for cabin storage, well there a useful cubby in front of the gear lever incorporating a couple of cup holders, a small tray beneath the handbrake and another one on top of the dash. The glovebox is big but the door pockets are rather small and don't incorporate bottle holders. Aux-in, USB and Bluetooth connectivity is standard, providing you avoid entry-level trim. And in the rear? Well just by looking at this thing, it's clear that rear seat accommodation in a Sandero us going to be a considerable improvement on the relatively claustrophobic quarters served up by most modern superminis. Get inside and that promise is largely realised. As usual though on a compact car, expecting to take three adults on any sort of length journey back here is a bit ambitious. And the boot? Well it's annoying that there's no handle to open the hatch. Still, at least once you raise it, the opening is nice and wide, so it's easy to load in bulky items, providing you can negotiate the rather high loading lip. There are no really clever touches like an adjustable-height boot floor, but you do get a couple of bag hooks. In terms of total capacity, there's 320-litres on offer.

What to Look For

Bear in mind that 'Access'-spec models didn't originally come fitted with any sort of audio system - though most owners will have fitted one. One owner had a problem with brake pads and discs needing to be replaced over-frequently. In another case, an owner had problems with the boot lock rotating but not unlocking, the handbrake light flashing on and off when applied, plus there was excess play in the suspension struts, rough idling, regular stalling and finally, a complete loss of power randomly when accelerating. In another case, an owner found the car started to rev by itself - apparently it's called 'hunting' and it's a common problem. Other things to look out for are, first and foremost, elements that tend to apply to all Dacia models. We came across some faults with the engine management systems and occasional issues with rust. Catalytic converter light failures are well known on Dacias, preceded by a warning light on the dash. And there's plenty else to look out for too. Some owners report various rattles - from the seat belt holder to the steering wheel. The wiper blades are of poor quality - but Dacia will apparently change them if owners complain.

Replacement Parts

(approx based on a 2016 1.0 SCe 75 ex VAT) An air filter costs around £12-£15. Front brake discs cost in the £48 to £83 bracket. Front brake pads sit in the £23 to £34 bracket for a set. An oil filter costs in the £5 to £8 bracket. A spark plug is around £6-£7. A radiator is in the £116 bracket. A fuel filter costs in the £7 to £10 bracket. A radiator is around £125-£135. A spark plug costs in the £5 to £10 bracket. A rear lamp costs about £67-£88. A headlamp is around £100.

On the Road

First, a bit of a reality check. We could sit here all day making cutting comments about this Sandero's ride and handling package but d'you know what? We'll cut to the chase. It's perfectly adequate for the modest needs of its target market. It always was; it still is. The robust suspension set-up that suits this model's third world customers is perfectly adequate for ordinary A to B driving, though can lose its composure when confronted with serious tarmac imperfections. Push a little through the bends and you'll find that body roll is actually reasonably well controlled and you get decent levels of cornering traction too. We could do with a little more feel through the steering wheel, but the helm is at least light, offering a city-friendly 10.58m turning circle. Engine-wise, the main news with this revised post-2017-era model lay with the installation of a fresh entry-level petrol engine, the 'SCe 75' 1.0-litre three cylinder unit. We'd suggest though, that if possible, you try and find the extra funds to stretch to the pokier three cylinder 0.9-litre TCe 90 turbo powerplant that most customers choose, a far more relaxed companion on the open road. As is the dCi 90 four cylinder diesel unit, a variant which can return an impressive 80.7mpg on the combined cycle and 90g/km of CO2 (both NEDC figures).

Overall

If, for you, a car is simply a functional implement, a domestic tool that, like any other, must justify its expenditure, then this one fits the bill perfectly. Solid, spacious and family-friendly for the kind of money you'd pay for a tiny city scoot, it offers pretty much everything you need and nothing you don't. There are variants available with extra equipment if you really want it - and even a bit of modern-tech in the form of the TCe petrol engine and the flagship variants' 'MediaNav' touchscreen. But you may just want to keep things simple - which is what the Sandero does best. Yes, supermini and family hatch products from the established market players are still more sophisticated than this Dacia - but if you can stretch to this post-2017-era Sandero, the gap isn't huge. Except, of course, when it comes to what you have to pay.

I purchased a Dacia Stepway. Lots of great driving features and brilliant value for money. It drives well and is very light on the steering. The boot is nice and roomy and there is plenty of space in the back for the children. Love the stop/start feature when stuck in traffic.

The car is fantastic value for money, 2 little niggles, 1 my previous car was a Citroen and the ignition key folded in on itself, this doesn't, the boot needs to unlock as a separate lock - would be better if it unlocked at the same time as the doors, other than that it's a pleasure to drive, just can't believe all the toys you get for the price, Thanks.
