The next-gen Renault Sandero and next-gen Renault Logan will look much more appealing than now.

The latest development was communicated by Laurens van den Acker, Senior VP (Corporate Design), Groupe Renault. Speaking to the French publication, the design chief said: "The third generation of Logan-Sandero will be produced on the new platform CMF-B." The fifth generation Renault Clio, which will go on sale in 2019, debuts this platform.

The next-gen Renault Logan and next-gen Renault Sandero will have further differentiation than the second-gen Renault Duster. Laurens van den Acker has said that while the first generation Logan was a concept in which style was unimportant and the second generation Logan was a little better w.r.t design, the third generation Logan must look more attractive, even if customers do not demand it. The CMF-B platform will allow stylistic possibilities that the BO did not.

Renault is developing two versions of the CMF-B platform: CMF-B HS (High specifications) and CMF-B LS (Low specifications). The next-gen Renault Clio and next-gen Renault Captur may ride on the CMF-B HS version, while the aforementioned Dacia models will utilize the cheaper, CMF-B LS.

The next-gen Renault Logan and next-gen Renault Sandero are expected to be ready for global sales in late 2019.
