Watch our video review of Britain's cheapest new car, the Dacia Sandero supermini

The Dacia Sandero is Britain’s cheapest new car, and we’ve been to the launch to see whether or not it should worry the facelifted Ford Fiesta.

The range starts at just £5,995 for an entry-level Access car, but this makes do without metallic paint or even a stereo. You’ll need to upgrade to the mid-spec model to get kit like electric windows and a radio, while flagship cars get air-con and optional integrated sat-nav.

There’s also a choice of three engines from launch, two petrol and one diesel. The highlight of the range is the turbocharged 900cc three-cylinder engine, which feels punchy but manages great economy, with an impressive 54.3mpg and 116g/km of CO2.

So check out our video and read our review for our definitive verdict on Britain’s cheapest car.
