Launched a few weeks ago, the new Dacia Sandero has been a real success in dealerships. The other side of the coin: delivery times are getting longer …
Arrival in December in concession, the new and third generation of Dacia Sandero has already marked the spirits. The versatile city car of the Renault group in fact rose directly to second place among the best-selling new passenger cars in France in January 2021.
With 7,249 registrations registered, it comes just behind the Peugeot 208 II and its 7,915 units sold but appears ahead of the Renault Clio V which attracted 6,323 new buyers. The Romanian can even claim the title of the best-selling car in France at the beginning of the year if we count the 1,636 registrations of the previous generation Sandero, still offered for sale.
What price for the new Dacia Sandero?
A success that the car owes to its assertive and modernized design (sharp lines, unique light signature …), to its enhanced interior (dashboard strip covered with fabric), to its enhanced equipment (automatic lighting of the lights and a speed limiter as standard …) but also and above all at its price, still contained and fixed at 8,690 € with the SCe 65 engine (BVM5) and the entry-level finish “Access” (or 12,590 € for the Sandero Stepway in ECO-G 100 BVM6 Essential version). It’s only € 400 more than the old Sandero.

How long does it take to get my new Sandero?
Suffice to say that at the moment, Dacia salespeople are busy filling their order books, especially for the Stepway adventurer version, which is particularly popular with customers.
A real box that exceeds the most optimistic forecasts of the manufacturer. So much so that the models are starting to “run out”. Faced with such a demand, stocks are melting little by little and delivery times are getting longer.
Thus, any customer who would fill out an order form today would have to wait several months before receiving the keys to their brand new Sandero, regardless of the model chosen. At present, delivery times would be four months. For any new order, no delivery would therefore be scheduled before June.
