Dacia Sandero Stepway SUV (2016 - )

Arguably, the Stepway’s faux SUV styling and raised ride height gives it a greater measure of desirability than the Sandero hatchback it's based on. You’ll pay a bit more for those looks, and the fact that only the more powerful engines are available, but like all Dacias, the Stepway still offers excellent value for money. Not surprisingly, at this price point, it’s not the greatest thing to drive and it isn’t exactly sumptuous inside. However, it is as spacious as most family-sized hatchbacks, it’s reasonably well equipped, and it is based on proven Renault mechanical components, so what’s not to like?

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

Unlike the exterior, the interior of the Stepway is identical to the regular Sandero’s. That said, because the Stepway only comes in higher trim levels, its interior is smarter than the more basic versions of the Sandero. The materials don’t have the same feeling of quality you would find in most other similarly sized cars, but for the price, it’s more than adequate. A four-spoke steering wheel features integrated control buttons for cruise control and speed limiter buttons on higher Laureate versions, although it only moves up and down and provides zero in and out adjustment. While the seat materials feel robust rather than plush, a splash of satin paint around the air-vents and centre console, and a dab of chrome on the door release handles helps lift the overall interior ambience. There’s a holster-style pocket on the side of the front passenger seat to stop your mobile from flying around the cabin, while further back, as well as a 12-volt power socket, there’s a useful bottle holder located in the rear of the centre console.

Overall, although we’re not talking the quality of, say, Volkswagen, the interior of the Stepway looks reasonably smart and modern, but it pays not to look too closely at the quality of the plastics.
