Dacia is a relative newcomer to the UK market, although the brand itself was founded in the 1960s. Today Dacia is owned by Renault, and shares some technology and mechanicals with its French parent. Dacia proudly advertises itself as the seller of the UK’s cheapest new car, and its status as a high-value manufacturer producing no-frills cars has won it plenty of fans.
Which Dacia is right for me?
If you are after simple transport then the Dacia Sandero is an ideal choice, being the cheapest new car on sale today. The Sandero also comes in Stepway form, bringing a raised ride height and a crossover look. The Logan MCV is a compact estate car that offers plenty of space for the money, while the Duster is a small family SUV that can be specified with four-wheel-drive for bargain go-anywhere ability.
