It’s testament to the Dacia that when CAR tested the Sandero many of us chose to take it home over test cars worth two- or even ten-times more than this £9k runaround. It’s far from advanced, refined or stylish, but it is absolutely bang on for its time. Furthermore, the diesel Stepway is the best of the bunch – once you’ve peeled those shouty stickers off.
