The Dacia Sandero has been named as the best performing small hatchback in the Honest John Satisfaction Index 2018. The Sandero came out on top in the small hatch class with an impressive satisfaction rating of 93.8%.
Dacia was third overall in the list of best performing car manufacturers with a score 89.3%.
Daniel Powell, Managing Editor of HonestJohn.co.uk, said: “Proof that cutting costs doesn’t mean cutting corners on quality; the Dacia Sandero is the UK’s best performing hatchback in the Honest John Satisfaction Index 2018, with drivers giving it an outstanding 9.89 out of 10 for reliability. Easy to drive, comfortable and practical, owners also rate the Sandero as a bargain with excellent build quality and affordable running costs.”
Based on the feedback of 10,000 car owners, they were asked to rate their cars in a variety of important areas, with drivers scoring them for reliability, ride comfort, fuel economy, practicality and performance. Owners also ranked their cars for build quality, ease of use, safety and repair costs.
Louise O’Sullivan, Head of Dacia UK said: “The Sandero epitomises what we are all about at Dacia. This latest recognition by our owners shows why the car is so loved and why it really sums up our slogan ‘You Do The Maths’ by providing an unbeatable combination of quality and affordability.”
Demonstrating that the Sandero is not just about an extremely affordable price are the numerous awards it’s picked up – notably What Car?’s ‘Best Small Car up to £12,000’ for the last six years.
