All-New Dacia Sandero offers best-in-class total cost of ownership

  • by

Already famed for offering customers the best value on the market, the All-New Sandero strengthens its appeal as Dacia confirms it delivers the most competitive Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) statistics when compared against a range of its most direct rivals.

On top of being unbeaten on price for customers to purchase in the first place, new TCO figures highlight that customers really do get the best, unrivalled value not only by owning, but also running the All-New Dacia Sandero.

Calculated over a 36-month/30,000-mile period, the Sandero – in Comfort TCe 90 specification – represents a compelling proposition for customers who are looking to save money. On average, the Sandero costs £3,027 less in TCO terms over three years and 30,000 miles than its closest competition – equating to costing 10.1 pence less per mile, or an average saving of £84 per month.

This figure is calculated based on a range of variables, from the Sandero’s efficient engines and low fuel costs, excellent insurance rating of 11E (Comfort TCe 90), to its affordable initial purchase price and class-leading residual values. This means Dacia’s competitive pricing and unrivalled offering directly benefits customers, with more money in owners’ pockets over the course of three years.

A key factor in the Sandero’s strong performance comes down to its impressive residual values. On average, the All-New Sandero range offers residual values of 55 per cent, with the Sandero Stepway achieving 54 per cent. Add in low initial purchase prices for retail customers, and the Sandero range remains a smart place for buyers looking for great value motoring without compromise.

Another vital element in ensuring low total running costs are SMR figures (service, maintenance and repairs), an area in which the Sandero noticeably undercuts all of its key rivals, representing an average saving of more than £250 over 36 months and 30,000 miles of driving compared to the next most-affordable competition in this area.

Additionally, the Sandero’s efficient engine range means fuel costs – particularly for fleet and business drivers – are kept in check, offering on average almost £200 in savings over three years and 30,000 miles.
