Dacia has updated the trim structure of the Sandero hatchback and its Logan MCV estate sibling, while also introducing a new 1.5-litre diesel engine to boot.

The Blue dCi 95 joins the naturally-aspirated SCe 75 and TCe 90 petrols, and takes the crown as the most powerful and efficient engine in the range. It produces 95hp and 220Nm of torque, and is capable of pushing the Sandero from 0-60mph in 11.7 seconds. For the larger, heavier Logan MCV, that time increases to 12.2 seconds.

Fuel economy is impressive, though, with both models managing up to 62.7 mpg under the more taxing WLTP testing cycle.

Dacia Sandero Comfort | The Car Expert

In addition to the new engine, Dacia’s revised its trim levels for the two models. The Sandero and Logan MCV ranges kick off with Access trim, available exclusively with the basic SCe 75 petrol engine and equipped with LED daytime running lights, manual windows, black plastic bumpers and trim pieces and basic ventilation.

Essential trim can be specified with the TCe 90 or new Blue dCi 95 and comes with most of the essentials – Bluetooth connectivity, electric front windows, body-coloured trim and air-conditioning.

   

Finally, range-topping Comfort trim brings new wheel trims, electrically operated door mirrors, remote central locking, a seven-inch MediaNav touchscreen infotainment system, cruise control, rear parking sensors and electric rear windows.

Pricing kicks off at £6,995 for the Sandero Access model. Essential trim commands an £800 premium and Comfort a further £1,000. The Logan MCV is priced at £1,500 over the equivalent Sandero, and is equipped identically.

    • Hi Doug. Yes, Dacia is still popular. Its new car sales were down about 4% in 2018 compared to 2017, but then the overall market was down about 7%, so Dacia’s market share grew slightly.
