the measured and compared numbers of 6 engines available in 2023
For almost three years, the stature of Dacia Sandero has changed. Rather nice to look at and drive and equipped with everything a modern car needs, it even has the luxury of a wide choice of engines. We’ve quantified them all in detail to help you find your happiness.
You can’t go wrong when choosing a Dacia Sandero. Since the arrival of the third generation, the Romanian city car is no longer a cheap car at all. Built on an architecture very close to the current Renault Clio, it just lacks some good manners – soundproofing, slightly longer seats… – to match the references, but it is forgiven for its price. unparalleled. Now it remains to choose the right machine from a catalog that is not yet complete. From a 3-cylinder 1.0 block, the Sandero actually rejected 6 different versions from 65 to 110 hp. Therefore, it is not easy to find the one that suits you best. To help you see more clearly, we analyzed and summarized all consumption and performance figures.
Choices to make
Before detailing the numbers, here are a few additional comments. Starting with SCe 65 hp. This entry-level engine, with logically modest performance, should only hold your attention if you’re driving around town.. Because when he comes to a stretch of road, without danger, he gets caught.
At the other end of the chain, the TCe 110, which arrived recently, is only available with Stepway bodywork and only available with a manual gearbox. On this topic, it should be noted that since the arrival of the Dacia Sandero 3, the “Stepway” is no longer a finish but a unique bodywork raised a few centimeters compared to the standard version and equipped with specific side skirts as standard. . Higher than the standard version, the Dacia Sandero Stepway therefore also deserves to undergo our measurement protocol to see the influence of ground clearance on consumption.
Between these two extremes, there are two relatively close powers: 90 hp and 100 hp. If it is still the same as the 3-cylinder turbo and the numbers are therefore quite close, the difference mainly comes from compatibility, or not, with LPG. The ECO-G 100 accepts lead-free and LPG while the TCe 90 only accepts lead-free. On the other hand, only the TCe 90 leaves the choice between a mechanical box or an automatic box.

The versions we recommend
If you really need an automatic transmission, the choice is quickly made. On the other hand, for all skeptics, we recommend you the variant ECO-G 100 without detours. If it imposes to make a cross on the spare tire, the LPG tank takes over the latter, it offers XXL autonomy because it combines fuel and gas tanks. Furthermore, only the mechanics manage the transition from one to the other with a systematic preference for LPG while there is some in the tank, allowing you to ride for a lower hit than unleaded.
