Best used 2013-2021 Dacia Sandero PCP finance deals

The Dacia Sandero is one of the cheapest used cars you can buy. Read on for the best used deals available on BuyaCar

The Dacia Sandero is a small car that’s noteworthy for having a very low asking price. Back when the value-oriented supermini first went on sale in 2013, it was the UK’s most affordable new car, with prices starting from just £5,995.

Of course, those basic Dacia Sanderos didn’t exactly come with many luxuries - in that cheap-as-chips entry-level form the car went without central locking, air-conditioning and a radio. Even body-coloured bumpers were missing from the spec sheet to keep costs down.

Thankfully, not every Dacia Sandero was as barren as this. Climb further up the trim levels, and creature comforts such as air-conditioning, a 7.0-inch touchscreen media system, electric windows, parking sensors and cruise control are added to the car’s specification sheet. Higher-spec extras like leather-trimmed seats also help to make the cabin feel a bit plusher - but only go so far in offsetting the hard and scratchy plastics that make up most of the Sandero’s interior trim; this is a sensible, value-oriented machine rather than an upmarket one.

Irrespective of the trim level, the Dacia Sandero did offer a pretty decent amount of cabin space for the money. Thanks to the car’s boxy shape, there’s sufficient space for taller passengers to be well catered for in terms of head and leg room, and - at a claimed capacity of 320 litres - the Dacia has a larger boot than even the latest versions of the Ford Fiesta (292 litres) and Vauxhall Corsa (309 litres).

Comfort levels aren’t bad, either, thanks to the soft suspension setup that helps iron out the worst lumps and bumps in the road. Of course, the trade-off for this is a lot of body lean when you go around corners, though that won’t be a problem if you’re not looking for something that’s engaging to drive and has sporty handling.

Carry on reading for more details on the best used Dacia Sandero deals and a run down on what comes with each trim level, to help you decide which version is right for you.

Best used Dacia Sandero deals

Dacia Sandero Access deals

The Dacia Sandero in Access specification is the most basic version of the car you can get. It’s only available with one engine - a 75hp 1.2-litre petrol with a five-speed manual gearbox - and doesn’t have many features at all. You won’t find electric windows, air-conditioning or a radio here, though the car is at least pre-wired for you to fit an aftermarket unit, so many used models will include a radio.

Dacia Sandero Access models come with traction control, front and side airbags, Isofix points on the outer rear seats for fitting child seats, manual window controls, 15-inch wheels, manually-adjustable wing mirrors and a 60/40 split-folding rear seat back.

Dacia Sandero Ambiance deals

Being the mid-range trim, the Ambiance specification on the Dacia Sandero comes with a few more creature comforts over Access models. These include electric front windows (you still have to manually wind down the rear windows) and Bluetooth connectivity. In addition to the 1.2-litre petrol, Ambiance models were also available with 90hp 0.9-litre petrol and 95hp 1.5-litre diesel engine options.

Dacia Sandero Ambiance models came as standard with the same kit as Access cars, in addition to electric front windows, wheel covers, a radio, Bluetooth phone connectivity, central locking and body-coloured bumpers. Following the mid-life update in late 2016, air-conditioning and a height-adjustable driver’s seat were added to the spec sheet.

Dacia Sandero Essential deals

In 2019, the Dacia Sandero’s Ambiance trim was renamed as the Essential spec. As a result, the tech list is pretty similar across the board, though Essential models did come out of the box with handy extras such as air-conditioning.

The Dacia Sandero in Essential spec came as standard with remote central locking, electric front windows, air-conditioning, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a digital radio and a 60/40 split-folding rear seat back.

Dacia Sandero Laureate deals

Laureate is the top-of-the-range trim on the Dacia Sandero, and comes with the most amount of equipment as standard. As well as the kit featured in Access and Ambiance versions, Laureate models are fitted with 15-inch alloy wheels, cruise control, heated and power-adjustable wing mirrors, air-conditioning and front foglights.

From 2017 onwards, a 7.0-inch touchscreen media system with built-in sat-nav and rear parking sensors came as standard. While no Sandero is luxurious, you do get plenty for your money with Laureate - and newer Comfort - versions of the Sandero.

Dacia Sandero Comfort deals

The Comfort trim is to Laureate what the Essential spec is to Ambiance: essentially, it’s a rename of the range-topping Dacia Sandero model. This also means Comfort models come with the exact same kit you’ll get on Laureate versions of the Dacia Sandero.

The Dacia Sandero in Comfort trim comes with 15-inch alloy wheels, cruise control, heated and power-adjustable wing mirrors, front foglights, rear parking sensors and a 7.0-inch touchscreen media system.
