Dacia Sandero goes on sale in Ireland

You may have been asleep when a new car brand was launched in Ireland but it seems that many of you were paying a lot of attention. A few months ago Dacia was launched on a rather unsuspecting Irish population.

The Duster became the first car that Dacia put into the local Renault dealers, it is largely price and equipment that Dacia are pushing because you can have a big off road looking car for around €15,000 which is massively cheaper than the segments top seller the Qashqai.

While launching the Duster they also launched the brand Dacia, if you travel to Europe a lot this brand will be familiar too you but the most of you won’t have heard of it. Everything is connected because there’s actually 3 brands in the picture here Renault, Nissan and Dacia and that’s why we get the same engines in the Dacia as we do in the bigger brands.
The Sandero is in the supermini segment and so puts it up against the toughest group of class leaders.

The big factor is that the Sandero is decent to look at, we’ll equipped and above all very reasonably priced starting at €9,990.
There’s more too it though, it’s actually good to drive, there’s very little in the way of bounce or body roll, it’s even got a decent interior. Where I was expecting sharp plastic I got a nice surface that is made from good plastics.
It’s a charming little car that for those of you who might be trading out of an older car might just think that a trade up to a new car for the price of something used would be worth it.
Dacia also have finance through Renault bank so you can have a Sandero for €99 a month.
Talk to your local Renault dealer for details on what Dacia can offer at he moment.
