The UK-bound Dacia Sandero made an appearance at the 2012 Paris Motor Show. With new exterior styling, a revised cabin and a total of four engine options, the Sandero offers buyers a low buck runabout. The five-door carries an MSRP of €7,900 and may be had in either gasoline or diesel guise. That price will fetch you power steering, a folding rear seat, stability control and the luxury of air bags. That's right: plural.
If Britain follows Germany's lead and adopts a scrap-your-old-car incentive, it looks like the first company to pounce will could be Romania's Dacia. Renault, which owns Dacia, had planned to launch its brand in the U.K. last summer, but then backtracked.
