2017 Renault Symbol (facelift) spied undisguised
Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.
Update – Ferd Fanpage has uploaded a fresh batch of images revealing the 2017 Renault Symbol in all angles. Changes observed in the interior are a new steering wheel and a gear knob. We’re awaiting an official announcement on the Symbol this month. Note that the Symbol is not an India-bound model.

Rebadged version of the Dacia Logan gets more visual distinction.
The 2017 Renault Symbol (rebadged Dacia Logan) has been spied undisguised at a parking yard, courtesy of Ferd, revealing the complete exterior changes as part of the mid-cycle refresh. The Renault Symbol is sold in markets like the UAE, Turkey, Algeria, as well as in Brazil as the Renault Logan.
This arrives few months after Dacia facelifted the Logan, which is currently sold in some European markets. The new Renault Symbol and the outgoing model have been spied parked beside each other, offering a closer look at what has changed.
The 2017 Renault Symbol has a slightly revised grille with chrome garnish that runs into the headlamps, new C-shaped LED DRLs in top variants, and a sportier 3-part intake which can come equipped with fog lamps. While the side profile is largely identical to the outgoing model, the rear-end gets revised taillamp graphics, re-positioned number plate area and a new bumper.
It’s unclear if the same changes will be made to the Brazil-spec Renault Logan as part of facelift, which is currently due for introduction as the model currently available has been on sale since 2013.
