What is it?
The Dacia Sandero Stepway Ambiance dCi 90 is the entry-level diesel-powered version of this jacked-up, body-cladded supermini.
Unlike the rest of the Dacia range, there is no base, UN-spec Access model to be had – although anyone disappointed by that news can console themselves in the knowledge that Glacier White remains the base colour.
Pretty naff stickers aside, it is a car with decent kerb appeal despite its relatively modest changes from the Dacia Sandero supermini. In essence, these are a ride height raised by 40mm and the addition of some body cladding and wheelarch extensions.
And for a car costing £9585 (in this form, with options including metallic paint – it can be had from £8995 with this diesel and £7995 with the petrol), that in itself is pretty remarkable.
