Rendering - Next Generation Renault Logan

Kaustubh Shinde

Kaustubh Shinde, They say sooner or later your passion finds you. Sometime in late 2009, I started writing for IAB and ever since then it has been a roller coaster ride for me. An amazing experience that has taught me a lot, taken me to new places, driven some great cars and met some amazing people. When you don't find me on IAB (very rarely), you will find me either at a coffee shop or an eatery or at the nearest gadget store. Hope you enjoy IAB as much as we do!

We already know that work has started on the next generation Dacia/Renault Logan. Dacia has been given the Fluence’s C platform to grow up and become a better car.

Thanks to the platform sharing, Dacia does not have to work on a whole new platform for the new Logan keeping the costs minimum – very essential if the Romanian brand has to make it through the bad weather.

Once Dacia has launched the Logan, Renault designers will be handed the car. From there the company is expected to rebrand the car and retail it in markets where the Logan sells as a Renault.

Testing of the 2013 Renault Logan began earlier this year in Europe and prototypes, heavily camouflaged, reveal hardly any details. The three things that we can figure out, that is well interpreted in the artist renderings are the wraparound grille, sweeping headlights and a sloping roofline. The design shows less signs of cost saving measures.

Dacia have reportedly increased the wheelbase to 2.7m, from the current 2.6m. Shortly after the launch, Dacia is expected to launch the sporty Stepway version, ala Skoda Fabia Scout.

Codenamed X52, the next gen Logan will be powered by a 1.6-liter petrol, a 2.0-liter petrol and a 1.5-liter dCi diesel. We are expecting Dacia to present the new Logan at the upcoming Paris Motor Show at least in its concept avatar. We must see the production-ready version, not later than Geneva 2013.
