MOTORISTS can snap up a new car and run it for three years for under £7,500.
The Dacia Sandero takes two places in the top five models of the most cost-efficient vehicles, according to research.
The entry-level Sandero has a low £5,995 price tag but experts Cap HPI say it leaves rivals behind for running costs.
They say the 1.0 SCe Access costs £206.10 a month to run, or £7,419.64 over the first three years, based on fuel over 10,000 miles, servicing and depreciation.
But it comes without a radio and is available only in white.
In second was the Dacia Sandero 1.5 dCi Ambiance which costs £223.97 a month to run or £8,059.20 during its first three years.
Dacia was a Romanian firm but was bought by French giant Renault in 1999. The brand has been on sale in the UK since 2013.
The Suzuki Celerio 1.0 SZ2 is at number three. It costs £231.97 a month or £8,350.74 over three years.
