New Dacia Logan and Probably a Hatchback, too

Published by on Feb 7th, 2008, 4 Comments

Since it wasn’t featured on Car Blog until now, you may not know what a Logan is but rest assured I’m here to tell you. It’s Dacia’s best selling model. Oh you don’t know what Dacia is, either? It’s a Romanian car manufacturer, currently a subsidiary of Renault Group. Though the current Dacia Logan was criticised for its ugliness and gawkiness, it was a massive hit if we were to look at sales figures.

But we live in a world where the great car price is not enough and customers need beauty curves, too. It looks like Dacia understood and decided to work on the next Dacia Logan. They are even focused on a hatchback (Dacia Sandero) version that was spotted in Romania a few days ago.

My opinion is the sales will increase for Renault/Dacia when the new model comes to the market this year. What do you think about the new Logan?

Having followed the progress of the Logan and been disappointed not to see it in the UK, Dacia/Renault might have missed the optimum window for a low cost ‘no frills’ car. The competition is getting much harder every day in the low cost market. The newest entrant is the Hyundai i10, only a little smaller inside (seats 5 comfortably), as economical as the Renault diesel (58MPG) and a 119 CO2 figure. Plus, its fully equiped with air-con, PAS, 4 x electric windows, high-spec CD etc, and has a 5 year warranty. All for a price of 8400 euros.
Since the Logan launched in 2004, much has changed, and for 9150 euros there is a lot of choice now. 9150 euros will also buy a 2-3 year old ‘quality’ car from Ford/GM, and even Renault etc. I will still look at the Sandero when I change my car next year, but it is no longer a ‘no-brainer’ as far as price/economy/comfort is concerned.
