Dacia has once again been recognised at the What Car? Car of the Year Awards, with the Sandero and Jogger being named ‘Best Small Car for Value’ and ‘Best Seven-seater for Value’ respectively.

It is the third consecutive year that the Sandero has won the title, and the 11th time the model has been awarded at the annual event. The What Car? judges were once again won over by its unrivalled value, practicality, efficiency and specification.

Highlighting the Sandero TCe 100 Bi-Fuel version, Steve Huntingford, Editor, What Car?, said: “There’s more interior space than in most rivals, while fuel economy is good, and it can run on LPG, which is much cheaper than petrol. The Sandero is also decent to drive and – in our preferred trim – pretty well equipped.”

Building on Dacia’s haul of more than 20 UK industry awards in 2023, including the ‘Best Seven-seater for Value’ trophy at last year’s What Car? Car of the Year Awards, the innovative Jogger successfully defended its title after impressing the renowned magazine and website with its space, usability, and equipment.

Reflecting on What Car?’s decision to name the Jogger as its seven-seater value champion for the second year in a row, Steve Huntingford added: "There’s a lot more to like than just its price. It's a very easy car to drive, and has plenty of space for adults in all three rows. Plus, our recommended Expression trim comes with all of the convenience features you're likely to want, including keyless entry, cruise control and rear parking sensors.”

Luke Broad, Dacia Brand Director for the UK, said: “When it comes to offering family-focused cars that not only deliver great value but also durability and driver appeal, Dacia is unrivalled. Value will always be core to Dacia, but these awards reaffirm that there’s so much more to our cars than just price. This is where Dacia excels, blending affordability with everything that car buyers and families need for years of fun adventures.”
