For whatever reasons, Renault decided to put their Renaultsport F1 badge on the new Dacia Sandero and Logan everybody seems to be a bit upset with the fact that it doesn’t delivers as expected. Dacia is in fact, Renault’s division for budget oriented cars, so I wouldn’t have expected to see a budget oriented RS from them, but looks like it’s going to happen and the new (tiny) beast will be presented in Brazil, at the Sao Paulo auto show. We’ll get more specs then … via AutoBlog.com
In a couple of spyshots taken today in Romania, a new Dacia mid-sized sedan was caught under a black clad camoflage. We already knew they’re planning a SUV but never expected something above the Logan in the sedan class. Apparently it’s built on the new Dacia Sanderro platform, is 4.6 meters long and not very much different from the facelifted Logan hatchback, and should be announced next year. The new model will be built in Renault’s renovated factory in Oyak-Bursa in Turkey.
I don’t know why but it looks like every car manufacturer is testing their cars in the Northern part of Scandinavia. So does Dacia, with their new Logan SUV Crossover which looks like it’s going to be a real thing probably in 2010.
My personal feeling is that unless they change something in the next two years there’s no way I would spend my money for it. It’s just a normal Logan with bigger fenders standing on bigger wheels. Another thing I don’t like is that I can see everything under, like an ugly exhaust pipe or the suspensions.
If the final version is going to look like the software rendered version and the €11,000 rumored price will stay, I’m back in business liking it.What do you think?

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?
