So how much are you going to end up paying? Prices start from just over £18,000 and for the TCe 110 petrol engine and manual gearbox configuration there are three trim levels, 'Essential', 'Expression' and 'EXTREME'. Hybrid 140 customers pay from just under £23,000 and choose between 'Expression' and 'Extreme SE'. All of which makes this by quite a stretch the cheapest seven-seater on sale in the UK. Most customers will probably want the mid-range 'Expression' model. The top 'EXTREME' variant at the top of the range features more off road-orientated styling, with additional black body cladding around the wheel arches and bumpers. Plus it gets front and rear skid plates and 16-inch wheels.
As for infotainment, well three different multimedia systems are being offered, depending on the trim level you choose. The first one is 'Media Control', based around a smartphone app, which replicates the app content on a dash mounted screen. This interface controls your device's navigation, media and telephone contacts. Ideally though, you'd want to stretch to a variant with Dacia's 'Media Display' system, which gives you an 8-inch centre dash touchscreen with 'Apple CarPlay' and 'Android Auto' smartphone-mirroring, along with a 4-speaker DAB audio system. At the top of the range, there's a 'Media Nav' system that adds built-in satellite navigation, along with wireless smartphone connectivity, a 6-speaker audio system and two USB ports.
