2009 Dacia Sandero Stepway 1.6 MPI


Good buy



General Comments:

I enjoy very much driving this car.

The 1.6 engine delivers decent performance and the suspension is very well setup. It is very comfortable on poor roads, and the ground clearance is well suited for Romanian roads (the Stepway version has higher ground clearance compared to regular Sandero versions).

The fuel consumption is not great, but confirms manufacturer figures.

The interior is a major improvement on the Dacia Logan, and there is enough space for all passengers.

I think reliability will be very good considering the statistics for Logan (that is sharing the same platform).

I think this car is good value for money.

There is also a diesel version, but I was advised to avoid it because of the poor quality of diesel fuel in Romania.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
