The Logan is hyped as one of the first 2011 model year cars to go on sale during 2010, but it’s actually based on a car that first appeared in 2004.

Renault’s new compact, entry-level sedan traces its roots back to the Dacia Logan that first appeared in Europe some six years ago, and little has been done to update it.

It represents one of the cheapest ways to buy a new car, but be warned – it comes with very few luxury or safety features.

With a price of just 38,500AED, the Logan finds itself competing against the likes of the similarly equipped Chevrolet Aveo and Hyundai Accent. It’ll seat four comfortably, five at a squeeze, and comes with a fair-sized 510-litre boot. Renault claims the legroom is the same as that found in the larger Megane.

Power comes from a 1.6-litre engine that puts out 105bhp and is attached to a four-speed automatic gearbox. Features are limited to front electric windows, a Blaupunkt stereo and 14-inch steel wheels. Just one basic version of the Logan was available at the time of writing.

It should be noted that the Logan comes with only seatbelts and a driver airbag in terms of safety equipment. More airbags, ABS and electric stability control are not available, even as options. The car also scored just three stars in the EuroNCAP crash test programme, and that was five years ago.

    Dacia Logan Sport is now being tested by the Romania company and soon will enter on the market. It is fast and really beautiful car, so I will be happy to see it soon on our roads.
