DoneDeal of the week: Two pre-registered cars that are great value for money

The Dacia Sandero and Renault Clio are both easy on the wallet, easy to drive and easy to maintain.

THIS WEEK WE have two cars that are cheap to run, reliable and come with a pre-registered discount.

First up, this 161 Dacia Sandero

The Sandero is an affordable, practical car with a cracking little engine. It is a paired back car that is easy to drive.

The front end of the Sandero sees the Dacia logo integrated into the radiator grille and has body coloured bumpers, side mirrors and privacy glass. The car looks sturdy due to its sculpted bodywork lines, pronounced wheel arches and sleek side panels. This particular model comes with 15-inch Colorado wheel trims.

Inside, the cabin is very spacious and practical and can comfortably carry five adults. The cabin features lots of durable hard plastics with touches of chrome on the steering wheel and around the air vents. The seats are covered in cloth upholstery.

With the rear seats up the cargo capacity is 320 litres and with the rear seats folded it expands to 1,200 litres.

There is a 12v, USB and AUX input socket, Bluetooth connectivity, a radio with CD player including MP3 CD reader with fingertip controls and two front speakers. There are electric front windows, a heated rear windscreen and a four-speed heating and ventilation system.

Safety equipment includes anti-lock braking system (ABS), Emergency Brake Assist (EBA), Electronic Stability Control (ESC) with ASR (Traction control), ISOFIX points for child seats in both outer rear seats and a tyre pressure monitor system (TPMS).

It is powered by a 1.2-litre petrol engine with a five-speed manual transmission driving power to the front wheels. It produces 73hp and goes from 0 to 100km/h in 14.5 seconds and onto a top speed of 162km/h. The official combined fuel economy figure is 5.8 litres/100km.

It falls into tax band B1, which means it is €270 to tax per year and has just 13km on the clock and a price tag of €11,200.

Next, this 161 Renault Clio

The Renault Clio is a good looking little car which really needs no introduction as it is so well known and loved on our shores. This particular model comes in Dynamique trim.

It has a trendy look and some bold styling features, like the gloss black side details, which gives the illusion of a narrower body. It is a five-door hatchback but the rear door handles are in the C-pillars giving it a sporty three-door profile. This car comes with 16-inch Passion alloy wheels in chrome.

It has a roomy cabin with front electric windows and mirrors and an on-board computer with instant consumption. It also has a MediaNav multimedia system which includes a 7-inch touchscreen, Navteq navigation, FM/AM/DAB tuner, 4x20W speakers and Renault Bass Reflex, Bluetooth hands-free calls, USB and AUX sockets.

There is plenty of cabin storage and a huge boot too – with the rear seats up the cargo capacity is 300 litres and with the rear seats folded it expands to 1,146 litres.
