MediaNav includes radio and Bluetooth® technology for hands-free phone capabilities as well as audio streaming plus sat nav, with 2D and 3D (Birdview) displays.

Dacia range offers affordability
Every model in the Dacia range is the most affordable in its class, all the cars offer a high level of quality and are spacious. Prices in the Dacia range start from just £5995 for the Sandero supermini. The Sandero has always been a smash hit, not only is it the most affordable car in the UK but it is also the least depreciating.
The Dacia Sandero Access is the entry model but specification is certainly not basic. The 15” steel wheels, power assisted steering, 60/40 split folding seat and daytime running lights are just some of the highlights. For just another £600 you can purchase the mid level Ambiance which offers radio CD player with fingertip remote controls, USB and AUX input, Bluetooth, remote central locking, electric front windows, body coloured bumpers and 15” ‘Colorado’ wheel trims.
Dacia have picked up nine major awards since the UK launch including a hat-trick of trophies at the carbuyer.co.uk 2013 awards, including Car of Year and 4x4 of the Year, plus Scottish Car of the Year for Duster and Best Supermini under £12,000 for Sandero with What Car? Managing Director of Group Renault UK, Ken Ramirez said “Dacia has enjoyed fantastic success in the short period since it launched in the UK and is now the country’s first choice ‘smart buy’ car brand. Dacia is young and fresh, but above all, it offers the consumer ‘shockingly affordable’ value for money with a no-nonsense approach to purchasing a safe and reliable new car.
