The Dacia Sandero has increased in price, with the entry-level Access model now costing from 6,995 in the UK


The Dacia Sandero is still Britains cheapest car, despite a sizeable 1,000 16.7 per cent price increase for the entry-level Access model. That premium sees the basic Sandero jump from 5,995 to 6,995, despite its unchanged spec sheet.
On sale since 2013, the Sanderos 5,995 headline figure has been unaffected by inflation, tax changes and list price hikes. However, due to recent VED tweaks and other external factors, bosses have decided it is no longer feasible to sell the bargain supermini for such a low price.
The cheapest new cars on sale
Regardless, the Sandero is still more than 500 cheaper than a Suzuki Celerio, and significantly less expensive than a Ford Fiesta, SEAT Ibiza or Vauxhall Corsa. If you want a car that can compete with the Sandero on space, youll need to step up to the pricier MG3, which costs from 8,695.

The good news is that the Sanderos inflated price is only applicable to the Access variant. All other Sandero models are priced as before, meaning the best selling Ambience version is now just 800 more than the entry car. For that modest premium you benefit from standard-fit air conditioning, a DAB radio and body coloured trim. For 1,200 more, the Sandero Laureate boasts a touchscreen sat-nav and parking sensors.
Look at the finance deals and the Sandero is even more affordable. With a 1,367 deposit and a 250 Dacia deposit contribution, you can drive away in a Sandero Access for 89 per month.
The engine line-up is unaffected, comprising two petrols and a diesel. The most economical version is the dCi 90, which claims 80.7mpg.
