Dacia, Logan

The new Dacia Logan sedan is being primed for introduction across Western European markets, and in most cases, its entry-level price remains unchanged.

The new grille is bigger and features the new Dacia logo, the front bumper is now flush with the bodywork and the headlights are more prominent, too.

At the rear, the boot lid has been redesigned and the new, flush rear bumper incorporates reflectors and a tow bar.

Other revisions include a new range of wheel trims and alloy wheels, and the list of body colours has been expanded, too.

Inside the cabin, a new dashboard is the biggest news, although a height-adjustable driver's seat and steering column are also new.


All versions gain more equipment, including the latest generation Bosch ABS with EBD and, for the first time on Logan, EBA.

All cars also come with three-point seatbelts and headrests and front airbags.

Logan's engine range remains unchanged, with power coming from a 56-kW 1.4-litre petrol unit, a 1.6-litre with outputs of 67 kW and 78 kW, and a 1.5-litre turbodiesel with 52 or 63 kW on tap.

The new Logan sedan shares several components with its Sandero sibling, which will be built in South Africa and goes on sale here in the first quarter of 2009. It will be badged Renault Sandero.
