Meet the DaciasBack

A new report this week has revealed that car company Dacia has saved UK car buyers an estimated £1.5 billion since the company’s arrival in the UK five years ago.

Dacia is currently the UK’s most affordable car brand since launching in 2013, with the Sandero remaining the UK’s lowest priced car, starting at just £6,995.

The report claims buyers of Dacia cars have saved £13,100 each when buying a brand new car, based on the average cost of a new car sold in the UK over the last five years compared to the average cost of all Dacia cars sold.

Dacia is a car-maker closely associated with Renault. Its brand concept is simple, to produce “spacious, robust, high-quality vehicles of original design that are affordable to everybody.” Dacia cars offer buyers exceptional value for money.

Dacia currently produce three cars within the UK, the Dacia Sandero, the Dacia Logan MCV and the Dacia Duster, all of which recently topped cap hpi’s Pence Per Mile (PPM) ratings which reveal the cars with the lowest total motoring costs in the UK including servicing and fuel depreciation.

Dacia launched in the UK more than 5 years ago and has since enjoyed record success being one of only four out of 36 manufacturers to receive a five-star reliability rating in the 2017 Which? Car Survey.

Over 5 million Dacia cars have been sold in Europe since the brand’s revival in 2004, with more than 120,000 Dacia vehicles sold in the UK to date

Dacia Sandero: OTR £6,995+

Since its launch in the UK, the Dacia Sandero has been awarded the title of ‘Best Small Car Under £12,000’ by What Car? for six consecutive years, from 2013 to 2018. Its one of the most spacious cars in its small car category, both for people and for luggage. Available as a five-door car only, buyers can choose from a range of engines and trims. All engines are claimed to cost you very little in fuel, with the diesel version promising the most miles to the gallon (80.7mpg). Choose the entry level Access trim and you’ll be dealing with an extremely basic equipped car devoid of air con, a radio and even central locking, so opting for the mid-range Ambience is more sensible. Behind the wheel, the driving dynamics are by no means as good as more expensive rivals such as the Ford Fiesta, but the Sandero is certainly a likeable car, and it offers more practicality than any other model in its category.

Dacia Duster: OTR £9,495.00+

The Dacia Duster is a budget priced SUV that’s bigger than many of its rivals, and not much smaller than key performers in its sector such as the Nissan Qashqai. Its available with three four-cylinder engines, but we’re recommend the 1.2-litre turbocharged engine to get the most out of your purchase. It’s the best performer and ideal for motorists who mainly cover shorter distances. The ride is surprisingly comfortable for a budget car with a clear emphasis on comfort as opposed to sportiness. Equipment is incredibly basic in the Duster, but on the bright side there’s little you’ll need to learn about its limited features. Choose the mid-spec version to benefit from a Radio/CD player and Bluetooth. Space in the Duster is generous, with more space in the front cabin than many rivals and plenty of storage provision. The boot is huge  with front-wheel-drive models benefiting from 475 litres if boot space – more than you’d get in a Skoda Yeti or Nissan Qashqai.

Dacia Logan MCV: OTR £8,495.00+

The Dacia Logan MCV estate was recently named the Most Highly Rated Car at the 2017 Honest John Awards, which is praise indeed for a budget estate car with a price tag of less than £10K. The Dacia Logan triumphs over rivals by offering class-leading space for class-leading cash. Built using parts from the 2000 Renault Clio, you could say the company has cheated slightly, but when you look at the price tag, quite frankly, who cares! the Logan MCV remains a complete bargain in comparison to rivals such as the Kia Ceed Sportwagon and the SEAT Ibiza estate. Buyers can choose from three engines – a 1.2-litre petrol that’s slow but cheap to run, a nipper 0.9-litre turbocharged engine that offers more punch, and a more expensive 1.5-litre diesel which is the quickest and most frugal. Like the other Dacia cars, choosing the mid-spec Ambience trim is advisable if you want to enjoy just some of the equipment you’d expect, or for a much better driving experience, the Laureate is not a lot more. To drive, the Logan is noticeably less refined, but it’s cheap to run and the interior and boot space rivals estate cars many price bands above.
