Dacia is a Romanian brand that sold cars in the UK for a time in the 1980s, mostly based on old Renaults.  Renault bought the company in 1999, and in 2012 returned to selling in the UK.  Their cars are very cheap indeed, and although they are basic they have garnered relatively positive reviews. 

Many Dacias are now manufactured in India. Top Gear’s James May is mildly obsessed with the Dacia Sandero supermini for reasons that are unclear.
