For an extra £1,000 you can upgrade to Comfort from the Essential trim, a move that brings heated and electrically adjustable door mirrors, rear parking sensors, cruise control and electric rear windows. There's also a touchscreen display with sat-nav, and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility.

Costing from £8,495 the Dacia Logan MCV is Britain's cheapest estate car, boasting a 573-litre boot. In Access trim it features 15-inch 'Tarkine' wheels, LED daytime running lights and Hill Start Assist, which prevents you from rolling backwards when setting off on an incline. Essential trim (from £9,295) brings DAB radio, Bluetooth, air-conditioning and electric windows. Comfort gets a new design of 'Lassen' wheel trims, the MediaNav touchscreen with sat nav, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, rear parking sensors, cruise control, heated door mirrors and electric rear windows.

With flared wheel arches, roof rails and a raised ride height (by 174mm), the toughened up Dacia Logan MCV Stepway comes in Comfort trim as standard, costing £12,495.

Dacia Sandero and Logan MCV specifications

Dacia has added its latest Blue dCi 95 diesel engine to the Sandero and Logan MCV ranges. It can propel the Sandero from 0-62mph in 11.9 seconds and on to a top speed of 111mph. Its fuel-efficiency measures from 58.8 to 62.7mpg (WLTP) depending on trim level, with CO2 emissions of 98g/km placing it in the 24% Benefit-in-Kind (BiK) band for company-car drivers.

This compares with figures of around 45mpg, 123g/km and 25% BiK for the TCe 90 petrol engine. However, the petrol is still cheaper to buy and insure, in group nine compared with group 13 for the diesel.

Fitted with the same diesel engine, the Logan MCV gets from 0-62mph in 12.4 seconds (12.6 for the Stepway version) and has the same top speed. Fuel economy is from 60.1 to 62.7mpg, with CO2 emissions of 97g/km for the standard estate and 103g/km for the Stepway, resulting in 24% BiK.
