Hot on the heels of the new Sandero five-door hatch, Dacia has unveiled a redesign of the cheap, little car that started it all for the offshoot of Renault, the Logan. Now dubbed the New Logan, Dacia's inexpensive four-door economy car gets spruced up on the outside with a new front fascia inspired by the Sandero, as well as additional chrome brightwork on some models. While just an evolutionary upgrade of the Logan's original four-year-old design, the mid-cycle refresh is well timed as the Logan line has now grown to include a pickup and now a hatchback. The interior has also been upgraded to include the new dash introduced in the Sandero, and we expect the new looks inside and out to make their way to the Logan Pickup, as well. There aren't really any mechanical upgrades of note, except the inclusion of the Sandero's new Emergency Brake Assist function, but what do you expect for a base price of €7,400?

      Damn that's ugly.

      New Logan? Looks more like "Old Jetta".
        • 6 Years Ago
        I say old Nissan Sentra or a Mazda Protege

        I see Versa Sedan all over.

      Very, very cheap. Very simple. Rather comfortable and with no obvious faults. It is even strongly built.
      A very honest little car. I quite like it.

      I agree with Jeremy Clarkson when he explained why the Logan is a good car. It's just a car, that's it. It does just car things. Somthing to think about.

      Now for my two cents as to what it looks like. The front reminds me of the Toyota Sienna.

      You guys have to understand that you just don't buy this car for the looks or for the pleasure of driving. It's a car that gets you from A to B and nothing more.

      Cheers.

      Uh, so why should U.S. auto enthusiasts be interested in this?

      Is this going to be offered as some sort of Nissan here in the States?

        Steve, you're clearly unaware of the percentage of Autoblog readers from not just all of North and South America (not just the U.S.) but around the world.

        This thing looks cheap....our Hyundai Accent looks much better. This is on par with an Aveo.

      Looks like the ass end of a VW Jetta. Blah!
