Road - Dashing Dacia

You don't appreciate life's little motoring luxuries, till you lose them. Things like electrically adjustable door mirrors, rain sensing wipers, adjustable steering wheel and being able to open the boot without having to remove the ignition key.

Compared to Renault's mainline brand, Dacia have also skimped on the looks department. No make-up and no Botox. But the seats are comfy, although a bit flat, and there's plenty of room inside the new Sandero. However, the high-ish riding position and flat-tish seat cushions means that it is easy to get in and out, especially for the elderly.

And that surely is where the Sandero will score highly. For the price of a decent 30,000 mile used car, you can buy a brand new Sandero with extendable manufacturer warranty from 3 to 5 or to 7 years.

With prices starting from £8,395, that will make sound financial sense for a great number of people. Mind you, I had the luxury one at £9,290 with alloy wheels, body coloured bumpers, electric front windows, remote central locking and radio/CD with Bluetooth and USB.

Cheap, and cheerful!
