Renault Sandero

Price: From R104 900

If you’re looking for a budget car that offers loads of space, this is probably the car for you: the Sandero has a cavernous interior. We particularly like the flagship Stepway model. At R104 900, it’s not cheap but this SUV-style crossover – with its raised ground clearance, 16-inch wheels, integrated front fog lamps, SUV-style roof rails, front and rear skid plates, and a chrome-tipped exhaust tailpipe – is dead gorgeous. Like the other Sandero models, the Stepway is produced locally, which is important when it comes to parts pricing and the overall cost of ownership.
