|You thought steel wheels were gone. You were wrong.|
Because of this nature of instantly thinking about the value for money and not the actual car itself, it has allowed the car in question to explode in popularity. That car, of course, is the Dacia Sandero. The Sandero has actually been around for a few years now, but it was only introduced into the UK about two years ago (when money was sparse, coincidentally).
The strategic introduction timing and Tesco Value pricing has allowed for it to be a huge sales success, despite not actually being that good of a car. So it does beg the question: would you just be better off with a better secondhand car for the sake of a few thousand miles on the clock?
|Yes, there really is no radio there. £300 optional extra.|
I disagree with these kind of reviews with such a passion, because it's basically saying you can either get a secondhand car with creature comforts, equipment, a decent engine and a chance you'll survive in a crash, or a car with black plastic bumpers that does none of these things. It seems like such a no-brainer, surely. Unless you love that new car smell THAT much.
|Cheaper and better in EVERY SODDING WAY POSSIBLE.|
Understandably, some people just want a cheap and back-to-basics city runaround. But if that was your case, why would you buy a Sandero new? I bet they'll become very cheap (and therefore justifiable) within just a few years.
The Sandero continues to sell well though, and therefore my eyes are getting ruined more and more with the unwelcome return of steel wheels and unpainted bumpers each day.
£5,995 is tempting for a brand new car... or is it? Reviewed by Jack Cooper on 13:34 Rating:
