Voted for by 43,000 real car owners, Dacia proved to be a firm favourite with the public beating both Skoda and Kia, who came in second and third place respectively.
Unlike other car awards, the second annual Auto Trader New Car Award winners were based on the honest opinions of those who have bought, driven and lived with their new vehicles.
Speaking on the win for Dacia, Louise O’Sullivan, Head of Dacia UK, said: “We’re delighted with our latest award win! It’s fantastic to see that Dacia’s incredible value for money offer is resonating so strongly with UK car owners and our cars are proving to be top choices every day for drivers. It’s not just about affordable prices, by keeping things simple we’re able to offer high quality cars with proven reliability, still offering the lowest priced new cars for sale in the UK, five years after we launched.”
The award-winning Dacia range consists of the Duster SUV, the Sandero supermini – still the most affordable new car on sale in the UK, the Sandero Stepway, the UK’s most popular Dacia model, the Logan MCV and crossover-inspired Logan MCV Stepway. Dacia has now sold more than 120,000 cars to customers across the UK.
