Renault Logan is a budget car created by Renault from 2004 to the present. Available in four body styles: sedan, station wagon, minivan and pickup. The most popular body style is the sedan. This model is produced under other names, such as "Dacia-Logan". The second generation of Renault Logan began to be produced in Russia, thereby the sales and popularity of this car increased several times.
After restyling, the car received three engine modifications:
- 1.4-liter engine with 75 horsepower;
- 1.6-liter engines with 84 and 102 horsepower.
The 102 horsepower engine was released after the model upgrade. After him, the car received a stiffer suspension, and the stability stabilizers were removed.
The Renault Logan size remained unchanged for each version of the body. And also the ground clearance, which in most cases is enough anyway. When sellingthe buyer can choose between four vehicle trim levels. The only difference is the presence of fog lights, alloy wheels, climate control, heated seats and an anti-lock system.
Overview of the car "Renault Logan"
"Renault Logan" is an ordinary budget production car, unremarkable both externally and internally. But do not bury this vehicle, because sales cannot lie - this car is one of the three best-selling cars in Russia. Externally, the car has not changed much, which cannot be said about its interior.
The latest generation has received a large touch display, which no longer surprises anyone. It has a standard set of functions, even the image output from the rear view camera, as well as the control of dead zones in the top configuration.
Interior material - cheap plastic, often squeaky and with little play. The climate control unit is a little strange. The center console is symmetrical, but the climate control is not. The gear lever has not changed much since the first generation. The dashboard also consists of familiar elements, with the exception of the display in the third cell, which is responsible for displaying system errors, vehicle mileage and much more.
Due to innovations, the interior capacity has been significantly reduced. Therefore, the dimensions of Renault Logan leave much to be desired.
The undoubted advantage of the car is its availability, as the car belongs to the budget segment of the company. The design of the latestgeneration has become much better, which makes the car look more attractive. And also, thanks to its high ground clearance and body size, Renault Logan has excellent cross-country ability, which is so necessary for driving a car on Russian roads.
The suspension here is almost indestructible, albeit a little stiff. With proper operation, it really will never break due to its energy intensity. And also with the release of the new generation, the roll of the car when cornering has decreased significantly. Despite the small size of the Renault Logan, the luggage compartment will please every owner. It is 510 liters.
The disadvantages include the design of the interior of the car, both in terms of functionality and in terms of materials and assembly. Poor-quality hard plastic spoils the entire interior of the car, although it makes it even cheaper. Even adding a multimedia display does not save the situation with the cabin. Weak technical characteristics do not particularly please Renault Logan buyers, but for this price the car has practically no analogues on the market.
At the moment, Renault Logan is produced in Russia, thanks to which the car can now be found on Russian roads much more often. It's like with a Zhiguli, you can not love a car all your life, but still drive it. With Renault Logan, the situation is the same, but compared to the usual AvtoVAZ, Renault makes its products much better and “for people”. But this car is not suitable for everyone, because the dimensionsRenault Logan does not allow carrying more than four passengers without any inconvenience. Therefore, car owners with a large family are better off looking at another model.
