The Renault Sandero Has Been Discontinued
The Renault Sandero has long occupied an important place in the Renault family hierarchy, smaller and more of a hatch than the Duster and more of a crossover when compared to the Clio. The Sandero is truly the car for every occasion – the school run favourite, the frugal commuter, the weekend getaway standard. It has plenty of space for five adults and a decent boot too. The 66 kW motor is plenty nippy and frugal as well, while this crossover SUV is compact enough to zip through the traffic and park with ease. The Renault Sandero SUV has been discontinued and replaced by the fantastic Renault Kiger, but you can still keep an eye out for used Sandero models. If you’re looking for a larger vehicle – you may want to consider the stunning Renault Koleos.

Renault Sandero Review
Since its launch in 2014, the second generation Renault Sandero has become a firm favourite of moms, dads and even first time car buyers looking for some extra vehicle space. Part of the reason is its great price tag, but even more importantly the Sandero also offers a safe and efficient drive that is perfectly suited to South African roads. These cost and life saving features are part of Renault’s drive towards designing and building safer cars without compromising on eye-catching design. Current standard safety features include ABS, Electronic Brake Assist, Electronic Brake Distribution and Airbags – even in the entry level Sandero Expression model!
Powered by the same engine that is found in the Renault Clio 4, the Sandero runs on a more than ample turbo engine that puts out 66kW of power. Renault has even added a few exclusive racing based technologies to the mix, which allows you to make the most of the 0.9-litre three-cylinder engine in driving situations where a little bit more power in needed.
With the standard six-function on-board computer found in all models you’ll be able to monitor everything from total distance travelled and fuel used, to average fuel consumption, kilometres remaining and even average speed while driving your Sandero. Plus you’ll also get to enjoy the convenience and fun of a Radio-CD MP3 player with Jack, USB Ports, Bluetooth® and satellite controls.
No matter if you purchase a Renault Expression, Dynamique or Stepway you’ll know that you are driving a French designed and built car thanks to its distinctive stylings. Everything from the Sandero colour choices to optional styling extras have been lovingly created by the Renault design team to make you the envy of your neighbours and friends.
Sandero Driving & Handling
It makes no difference if you are on a school run or a long-distance family holiday, because the Renault Sandero will offer you a fuel efficient and reliable journey no matter where or how far you drive. Add to this the safety features and road handling that one has come to expect from Renault and you’ve got what is in our opinion the perfect South African family driving experience.
Overall Thoughts on the Sandero
Possibly one of the best entry level family vehicles in the country, it is doubtful if any other car in its class could match the Renault Sandero Reliability in terms of specifications. Big on size, safety, fuel efficiency and reliability, while still being small on price, the Sandero will undoubtedly change the way that you perceive the average South African family car.
