The Dacia Sandero it is an anomalous presence in the small car market. It is measured against them in positioning and price even if since its origins, in 2008, it has been built with elements taken from Renault models of the higher segment.
For this reason, both in the standard variant Streetway both in the most eye-catching Stepwayturns out to be one of the most spacious and capacious, but at the same time affordable, sedans of the category and of the entire market. Market that in this particularly complex period sees it emerge as one of the absolute queens of Europe.
Dacia Sandero, the dimensions
If we exclude the 4.21 meters of Kia Rio, Dacia Sandero is the subcompact longer on the market, even if only slightly: his own 4.09 meters, which rise to 4.10 on the Stepway (4,088 and 4,098 mm respectively) place it at the top, although not by much since most of today’s small cars also exceed 4 meters. The same goes for the wheelbase, the distance between the axles of the front and rear wheels, which exceeds 2.60 meters (2,604 mm).
The more weapon of the Dacia Sandero, however, is the compact width which betrays its derivation from larger platforms: if the other small cars now elbow between 75 and 80 meters, she surpasses everyone with 1.85 meters (1.848 mm) and in height, from exactly 1.5 meters to a maximum of 1.58 for the Stepway, which has a height from the ground greater than 40 mm (201 against 162), with the longitudinal bars on the roof.

Dacia Sandero, roominess and trunk
The abundance of centimeters in width as in height makes the Dacia Sandero a spacious and easy-to-access car, comfortable for 5 passengers thanks to the sofa without armrests and ledges and the tunnel just mentioned and suitable for not very large families.
Although the quality is gradually improving as the equipment, it remains a cost-conscious car. The 410-liter trunk it is large but without any particular measures: the loading surface is soft, not adjustable in height and without a double bottom (underneath there is the recess for the spare wheel or the LPG tank), the step between the side and the bottom is rather pronounced as well as that between the bottom and the back.
This is split into two parts and when reclined it releases a maximum volume close to 1,500 liters while the maximum loading length is just over one and a half meters, 1,517 mm.
