We Hear: Dacia Sandero Is Top Gear's Next Reasonably Priced Car

As the cheapest new car you can buy in Britain, the Dacia Sandero doesn't exactly have a reputation for fast-paced action. That could all change later this summer when a new Top Gear series starts.

Dacia Sandero review
When the show gets on the road, starting June 30th, a new reasonably priced car will be brought in to replace the Kia cee apostrophe d. Top Gear won't say what the replacement is, but it's being suggested that it's a Dacia.

The sportiest car currently on your local Dacia dealer's lot is the Sandero hatchback, available with Renault's new 0.9-liter turbo engine developing 90 horsepower.

There's nothing anywhere on the internet to confirm the Sandero will star on Top Gear, but we have managed to find a little Easter Egg.

In their review of the Sandero, Top Gear say this: "The Sandero deserves to shake-up the sector. It's a reasonably car for a frankly astonishing price."

No, we did not mess up their spelling to prove a point, and it could be an intentional anagram to tip us off.
