Ten Second Review

The improved Dacia Sandero Stepway is inexpensive but doesn't look it. It's a supermini that's been jacked up a bit to give a Crossover look and seems to press all the right buttons for buyers who don't want big outlay but require big value.

Background

You know when an idea is a good 'un when your opposition are looking at each other and wondering why they didn't think of it before. The Dacia formula is really rather simple. It takes tried and tested Renault engineering and recycles it into new cars hailing from Romania. Therefore there's very little research and development expense, low labour costs, minimal tooling outlay and hey presto, you have a line of cheap and reliable cars that are just about pitch perfect for these austere times. Hardly rocket science is it? Renault acquired the company in 1999 but it's been only in the last few years that cars have once again been imported to the UK. We've had the Duster budget 4x4 and this was followed by the Sandero supermini, at launch the cheapest car on sale in the UK. The car we look at here, the Sandero Stepway, is a spin-off of that model and it's one that has a lot to be said for it, especially in this improved form.

Driving Experience

In order to understand the appeal of the Sandero Stepway, know this. The basic Sandero supermini upon which it's based has been designed to sell into many third world markets and as such is billed as having excellent ground clearance and "robust underbody protection for impressive performance on unpaved tracks". If that's not a great basis for building a jacked-up version with even greater abilities, I don't know what is. Do remember that this isn't a four-wheel drive car though, so there are limits as to what it can negotiate. For tougher stuff, you'll probably need to buy Dacia's Duster compact SUV. The entry-level 90PS 1.2-litre petrol engine will probably be more than enough for most people and it's a sweet little motor, the three cylinders making a characterful sound and driving the front wheels via a five-speed manual gearbox. Alternatively, there's a 90PS 1.5-litre diesel that isn't the most refined unit we've come across but nevertheless makes all the right economy and emissions figures. The extra wheel travel seems to give the Stepway a marginally better ride quality than the standard Sandero and the 40mm raise in height hasn't made body control noticeably worse.

Design and Build

The Stepway is styled to look a bit more rugged without actually offering any four wheel-drive underpinnings. Think Qashqai-style compact Crossover and you're not far off the mark. That stepped up ground clearance gives it a nicely chunky look and might well prove useful when bumping up and down big kerbs in town. It also gets a redesigned front end and body features such as front and rear skid plates, fog lamps, two-tone bumpers, pronounced wheel arches, 16-inch 'Stepway' alloy-look rims, two-tone longitudinal roof bars and exclusive blue paint. Inside, there's embroidered upholstery and grey overstitching for a bolder look. We should talk about the changes made to this revised model which gets a revised front end design showcasing Dacia's new lighting signature flanking a revised honeycombed grille. The interior's smarter too, with satin-effect chrome finishing to lift the dashboard, a revised steering wheel and some softer-touch surfaces on upper-spec variants. Dacia has even moved the electric window switches from the centre console to a more conventional place on the doors. Boot volume is 320-litres, which is extremely good for this class and there's a 60/40 split fold rear seat to improve practicality still further. The cabin offers plenty of storage, notably with the addition of a central cubby box. The oddments spaces in the front and rear doors are large enough to house a 1.5-litre and 0.5-litre bottle respectively.

Market and Model

When Dacia developed the Sandero, it set out to bring a completely stripped out and basic car to market which is why it was able to sell you one for less than six grand. The Stepway is a different animal and will appeal to a different buyer. With no thrift store Access specification and base SCe 75 1.0-litre engine available, the base price is pushed quite a bit higher, in this case to around £9,000, but that's still remarkable value for money. Mind you, what do you compare it with? Probably one of the cheaper small Crossovers, maybe a SsangYong Tivoli perhaps, but one of those will cost you thousands more. It all means that many will find this model's value proposition too strong to ignore. The entry-level Ambiance specification is equipped with air conditioning, electric front windows, front fog lights, and roof bars, Bluetooth, metallic paint, a DAB radio/CD system, driver and front passenger airbags, front side airbags and stability control. Go for the range-topping Laureate trim and you'll find all that plus a 'MediaNav' Evolution 7-inch touchscreen multimedia system including satellite navigation and rear parking sensors. Plus cruise control with a speed limiter, front fog lights, heated and electrically-adjustable door mirrors, a height-adjustable driver's seat and steering wheel, leather gearknob and a trip computer. The price for all of that? Around £10,000, or around £11,500 if paired with the diesel engine. That wouldn't even squeak you into the most basic Volkswagen Polo you can buy, equipped with a flaccid 60PS petrol engine. I know what I'd rather have.

Cost of Ownership

Such is the buzz that's being created around Dacia cars that the brand is getting some serious recognition from real car enthusiasts. I know a guy with a stable of Ferraris who uses a Duster as the car he punts into town. The Stepway probably isn't going to be quite as depreciation resistant as the most basic Sandero models but it'll still do well and the low asking price means that the edge will be taken off any depreciation. The TCe 90 1.2-litre petrol engine is respectably quick but it'll still return reasonable fuel economy. Dacia quotes a figure of 55.4mpg and emissions of 115g/km. Go diesel and you're looking at 74.3mpg and 98g/km - but it's worth bearing in mind that if you choose the same diesel in a non-Stepway Sandero it'll dip to 90g/km. All new Sanderos come with a 3 year/60,000 mile warranty (whichever is reached sooner). Rather than forcing buyers to pay a premium for a longer warranty they might not want, there's the option to extend their warranty should they wish.

PCP

PCP (Personal Contract Purchase) a simple cost effective way to buy your new or nearly new car.
You choose the car, the deposit, how long you want the contract to run for and the mileage you intend to do. You will then receive a quote for fixed cost motoring for the length of the contract. At the end of the contract you have a choice to either buy the car outright for an agreed lump sum (the GFV or final balloon payment), or hand the vehicle back to the lender.

HP

Hire Purchase allows you to take ownership of a car once all payments are made.

This is one of the most popular methods to buy a new vehicle. You pay an initial deposit, then pay off the balance in monthly payments over an agreed period of time, when the payments are complete the car is yours.

One of the main benefits with Hire Purchase is the ability to buy a high value vehicle on monthly payments.
Hire Purchase allows you to tailor your finance package as deposit, length of time and monthly payments are all flexible.

Lease

Personal contract hire is very similar to normal contract hire, but is exclusively for private individuals. This is one of the most common form of leasing.
With a personal contract hire agreement you take control of a car for a contractual period – usually referred to as the ‘lease period’. You will make fixed monthly payments for the duration of the contract – when the contract expires you will simply return the car and take out a new personal contract hire lease. PCH means you never have to worry about resale values of your car.
