Renault believes in these tough market there#8217;s a big market out there for reliable, roomy and safe cars. So enter the new Renault , built in Nissan#8217;s Rosslyn in Pretoria on the same platform as the sedan and Nissan#8217;s own NP200

In Europe the Logan and Sandero the Dacia badge, but over and in South America, where the is especially popular in Brazil, called a Renault.

In this the price is important. All important. So the bones Sandero 1.4 Autentique in below the R100 000 mark at R98

No aircon, no electric windows, EBD, remote central or a Blaupunkt radio/CD, but it does an driver#8217;s airbag and power
