The Logan MCV (Maximum Capacity Vehicle) becomes the “UK’s most affordable new estate car” today, with prices from under £7,000. The fourth Dacia model to hit UK shores arrives in July with a boot to take on a Volvo V70.
With a price tag from £6,995, the romanian car has a 573-litre boot with the rear seats in place. With the seats down, Logan MCV offers 1,518 litres. The boot opening’s a decent size too, with a 787mm entry gap up to the roof, combined with a 1011mm boot opening width.
In true Dacia simplicity style, the Logan MCV line-up mirrors its sister car, Sandero, exactly. The only difference is £1,000 in price between comparable versions, to account for its estate body. Three easily distinguishable trim levels are on offer, Access, Ambiance and Lauréate, priced from only £6,995 to a still scarcely believable £10,795 for the range-topping diesel.
With ABS with EBD (Electronic Brakeforce Distribution), ESC (Electronic Stability Control), ASR traction control, ISOFIX points in both outer rear seats and four airbags all fitted as standard, the all-new Logan MCV has yet to be tested by EuroNCAP.
Only £600 more takes buyers up to Ambiance, the mid-point of the range. There, a whole array of additional style and comfort features kick in. Among them are a radio CD player with fingertip remote controls, USB/AUX input/ Bluetooth, remote central locking, electric front windows, 15 inch Colorado wheel trims and black roof bars.
Powering it are a choice of three frugal engines. The first, the 1.2 16V 75, one of the Renault Group’s most tried and tested engines, is on offer with every trim level. The even more frugal, yet powerful, TCe 90 and dCi 90, can be had with both Ambiance and Lauréate.Source: Dacia
