Shell V-Power: Fuelling your passions
Friday 9th June


What should I be paying?

There are three trim levels – Essential, Expression and Extreme SE, the former with its headline-grabbing £17,145 price (less than the even more headline-grabbing £14,995 it used to cost when it was launched) that will turn heads and largely get ignored.

Still, it’s fairly fancy for a Dacia, with cruise control, manual aircon, LED lights and rear parking sensors as standard.

Another £1,300 gets you into a Expression car, which will likely take the majority of sales. It adds auto aircon, keyless entry, electric handbrake, auto wipers, a (suspiciously askew) rear parking camera and nifty ‘Flex’ steel wheels that are styled to look like alloys but much cheaper for bouncing off kerbs. Plus you get that eight-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It's the pick of the bunch, for us.

Finally Extreme SE - reviewed separately here, for your entertainment - is the top-spec trim which starts from £19,245 and adds heated front seats, interior floor mats, satnav, an extra USB charging port and a few saucy exterior styling tweaks thrown.

There are just two choices to make on the options list once you’ve chosen what spec you’re going for – whether you want a spare wheel and whether or not you fancy a splash of metallic paint.

If you fancy the 140 Hybrid over the cheapest TCe 110 petrol, you're looking at an extra £4k on the purchase price. Only you can decide if the improved fuel economy and lower BIK make that a worthwhile investment.

As you'd expect, finance deals are pretty cheap considering the amount of car you get for your money. Essential trim costs £261 per month over four years on a PCP (Personal Contract Purchase), Essential is priced at £275 and Extreme SE is only a tenner more at £286.

In each case your deposit is a month's payment (most cars need a couple of grand down to unlock rates this low) and interest is fixed at 7.9% APR. Be aware that all this assumes an annual mileage of 6,000 miles; anything over that will set you back a further eight pence per mile.
