Renault Dacia Logan MCV is a wagon version of the Logan sedan focusing on family-based customers with loads of space and affordability
It turns out the Sandero hatchback and Logan sedan are not the only vehicles patented in India as the MCV version of the Logan has also been through the procedure. The Logan MCV is a budget estate sold in the international markets and it has a tall-riding stance with high boot and loads of luggage space.
Like the other models in its portfolio, the Romanian brand owned by Renault, Dacia, has the habit of offering Stepway edition and it enhances the off-roading nature of the wagon with exterior updates. Dacia has won over customers due to the affordability of the MCV and it rivals the Kia Cee’d Sportwagon, Seat Ibiza Estate and Skoda Fabia Estate in the European market.
The crossover-bodied family estate’s Stepway edition enables protective moldings, increased ground clearance of 50 mm and skid plates but it does not offer an all-wheel-drive system. The regular Logan MCV has all the utilitarian vibe and is a tailor-made vehicle for family outing and camping during weekends.
The Stepway excels on the standard MCV which saw a cosmetic update being introduced along with Sandero and Logan at the 2016 Paris Motor Show. It comprises of 16-inch Bayadere Dark Metal wheels, two unique paint schemes, Duster-based grille assembly and roof bars.
The interior of the Renault Dacia Logan MCV resembles that of the sedan and in fact the Sandero by a big margin. The Stepway version features bootspace of 573 litres and is claimed to be the biggest in its segment. The regular MCV is being made available in two engine options. They are, a TCe petrol unit making 90 PS power and a dCi diesel making 90 PS.
While the former can be had with either a five-speed manual or a five-speed automatic transmission, the diesel unit is sold only with five-speed manual. Select markets have also said to receive LPG model at a later time. The Stepway uses the same engine options as the standard version. The wagon segment has seen many competitors in the past but currently it can be explored at with equipment and the Logan MCV may just well be all the rage.
