Ten Second Review

The Dacia Logan MCV is an estate car that offers an affordable option for those who thought they could only buy used. It's not the last word in sophistication, as you might expect at this price point, but it's probably a good deal more refined than you expect. On the basis of metal for your money, this revised version is extremely hard to beat.

Background

Sometimes simple is best. Granted, there are times when we want a bit of excess and over-engineering in our lives but when it comes to family transport, it's easy to really blow the budget on something you don't really need. It's what manufacturers of premium-badged cars have counted on for years. At the other end of the spectrum is Dacia. It takes tried and tested Renault engineering and recycles it into new cars hailing from Romania. This means very little research and development outlay, modest labour costs and minimal tooling costs. The result is inexpensive but rugged cars that work very well for cash-strapped family buyers. The Duster budget SUV and Sandero supermini have established a beach head for the brand in this country and the Logan MCV estate has built on that. MCV? Dacia claim it means Max Capacity Vehicle but it's an estate to you and me and a handily-sized one at that. This revised version gets a more efficient Blue dCi diesel engine and the option of a rugged-looking 'Stepway' trim level.

Driving Experience

The Logan is the car that might well have first introduced British buyers to the Dacia brand, especially if they've travelled to France where the first generation Logan was a big hit. We never got that car in the UK and the second generation Logan took a different tack to the original, making the Sandero in effect the hatch version. That's why the Logan MCV gets much the same engine selection as the Sandero. That means a neat 900cc three-cylinder TCe 90 petrol engine as the main attraction. This is an engine that's great in a Clio and powers the smaller Sandero adequately, with great fuel economy and a decent turn of speed. It's a unit that needs to be worked as it makes peak power at 5,250rpm, although there's 135Nm of torque from just 1,650rpm. For those on tighter budgets there's an 'Sce 75' 75hp petrol powerplant at the foot of the range. There's also a 1.5-litre 95hp 'Blue dCi 95' diesel. The Logan MCV rides on a version of the Nissan B0 platform that underpins the Note and the LEAF and is built tough to appeal to world markets. Electronic stability control (ESC) is fitted as standard, compliant with European regulations. It ensures vehicle stability under difficult conditions such as obstacle avoidance, loss of grip when cornering, and slippery road surfaces. ABS (anti-lock brake system) is enhanced by Emergency Brake Assist (EBA), which adjusts the hydraulic system automatically to apply maximum brake pressure from the onset of braking through to the trigger point at which ABS switches in.

Design and Build

The Logan MCV is a fairly practical-looking thing that has one of the best carrying capacities in its class. Take something like a Skoda Fabia estate as a competitor. That fronts up with 480-litres of boot space with the rear seats in place and 1,485-litres of total capacity when they're folded. The Logan MCV is notably bigger, with 573-litres in the luggage bay and up to 1,518-total capacity. Look at those figures and you might assume that with these broadly similarly sized cars, the Skoda maybe compensates by offering more rear seat space than the Dacia. But get into the back of the Logan MCV and it feels anything but pinched. This current model gets a smart front end design showcasing Dacia's distinctive lighting signature flanking a honeycombed grille. Go for the 'Stepway' version and you get flared wheelarches, roof rails and a higher 174mm ground clearance. Whatever Logan MCV model you choose, you'll find a smarter interior than you might expect, with satin-effect chrome finishing to lift the dashboard, a smart steering wheel and some soft-touch surfaces on upper-spec variants. As for practicality, well the interior arrangement is clever, offering no less than 16-litres of handy, accessible stowage features, such as front and rear door bins, cubbies and a storage tray on top of the dashboard. The luggage compartment cover (available on some versions) has a rigid upper section with additional interior stowage capability. The easy-to-use 2/3-1/3 split/folding rear bench, standard on all variants, makes for maximum versatility.
