Dacia’s Unrivalled Value Recognised at Prestigious Industry Awards

At the annual What Car? Car of the Year Awards, held in Grosvenor House in London last month, Dacia continued to cement its place as the undisputed value champion after winning a trio of best value awards.

The Dacia Sandero won Best Small Car For Value, the Duster won Best Small SUV For Value, and the Jogger won Best Seven-Seater For Value all of which followed a selection of awards for the brand in 2022. These new accolades add to the success story of Dacia by recognising not only the affordability of the brand but how they continue to manage to compliment this with attractive levels of equipment, refinement, and practicality.

Steve Huntingford, Editor of What Car? said: “The Sandero may be a regular holder of the ‘cheapest car in the UK’ crown, but there’s a lot more to like about it than just its price. It's one of the most practical and comfortable cars in the small car class …the Duster proves that you needn’t fear being short changed. It combines its attractive pricing with plenty of standard kit and good resale values.”

The Duster is an iconic staple of the Dacia range and offers something for everyone with petrol, diesel, and Bi-Fuel engines available with two or four wheel drive across the range. You can also expect standard models to come with cruise control, a speed limiter, daytime running lights, emergency brake assist, and Bluetooth connection.

Despite only launching within the last 12 months, the Jogger has made a big impact on the marketwith Steve Huntingford adding “The Jogger is the cheapest seven-seater that you can buy new in the UK by around £10,000, yet it still has space for adults in all three rows. In addition, it deals with lumpy roads well, while providing good body control over undulations to ensure that car sickness shouldn't be an issue.”

The recognition from the prestigious industry awards comes as Dacia UK celebrates more than doubling its sales in 2022 with a 55% increase on 2021, it’s 10-year anniversary since launch, and the arrival of its first hybrid model – the Jogger HYBRID 140.

Luke Broad, Dacia Brand Director for the UK, said: “What better way to start the year than to receive three accolades at the What Car? Car of the Year Awards. I’m proud that Dacia’s unrivalled value has once again been officially recognised.”
