In India, the Dacia Logan is sold as the Mahindra Logan, manufactured as part of a joint venture between Mahindra and Renault. Observers suggest, though, that because the Mahindra Logan isn't selling well, the Indian company will wind down its involvement in the joint venture. If Mahinda does take a giant step back, it is doubtful that Renault would just walk away from the Indian Logan, which is said to be priced a little too high because of a tariff on its length.

Last month Renault India confirmed that the partnership was being restructured, but haven't yet indicated where things will go. The apparent option is Mahindra decreasing its equity stake by not investing any further, although another form of equity restructuring might also be in play.

      This POS is sold as a Nissan in Mexico.

      Saw this in Fremont, CA with Mexican plates the other day. Did a double take at seeing the Logan among modern cars.

        So why is it a "POS" - because you don't like the looks of it?

        It sits on the last-generation Megane chassis - no bad thing. It's also very inexpensive to buy, and as such has gained a good deal of popularity in the countries it is sold.

      To put this in a perspective: Here in Europe a Dacia Logan costs about two thirds of an Chevrolet Aveo, less than half of a Nissan Versa, or one third of a Ford Ranger. It offers more interior and luggage space than a Aveo sedan. But it is more than four meters long, which results in a lower adoption rate in European cities and extra tariffs in India. For those markets prefering four meter hatches there is the Dacia/Renault Sandero which is basically a Logan with a more modern front and a hatch. I guess Mahindra Renault should have waited for the final Sandero to start production of this hatch instead of the sedan to qualify for lower taxes/tariffs.

      All I want is the truck. Diesel, 4x4, standard tranny. I bet if it comes, one of my requirements won't pan out.
