Dacia Sandero Ambiance dCi 90 £9595

Dacia prides itself on its no-nonsense, low cost approach to motoring, so it’s little surprise that the Sandero is the cheapest diesel on sale in the UK. The petrol Access model is just £5995, but opting for diesel power necessitates the Ambiance trim and a further £3600 for a list price of £9595.

It might be cheap, but the Ambiance trim level is relatively cheerful, even if it makes a virtue of the fact the bumpers are painted - white, you’ll need to fork out £495 for any other colour. Even so, the standard equipment includes manual air conditioning, DAB radio and electric front windows.

Is the old adage that "Typically diesel models are more expensive to buy than their petrol relations, but if you're covering big distances every year, they will be cheaper to run." still true?

With the demonisation of diesels coupled with the introduction of tiny, fuel efficient petrol engines, I have seen diesel prices fall and are now much closer to petrol prices. In a few cases, they can be even cheaper than petrol cars.

I m thinking of buying a diesel car but don't do high mileage. Reason I want it is for a 2nd car which may be used as a towing vehicle.
