Good news one of my friend had actually taken a snap of the Logan which he mailed today.

Here is the pic with me looking at the car (click on the thumbnail)

Nice pic Techno

I find it pretty decent looking atleast from the angle the pic is taken from. The Renault badge suits the grille pretty well and I guess the grille looks a bit redesigned from the one with the Dacia badge

The promos are already out or should i say teasers.. Its going to be one car to watch out for ... just hope it doesnt go the Mahindra Ford Escort way

Dippy the car is nice but its no where when compared to the latest offering by various companies like Ford, GM & others in design dept & thats what dissappointed me. I just hope the car is a good overall package.

Agree with you on the design and looks dept Techno. It is a boxy design. But I'm dead sure that if the overall package is good along with good service and cheap spares, its going to be a classic Mahindra vs Tata battle.. aka Indigo vs Logan

See those wipers which move from opposite sides compared to other cars like indigo,esteem..

It is really cute compared to indigo atleast.. may be because of fresh looks

They maintained the bland looks of the car in order to keep the costs down. Their main aim was to transport 4 adults, a sink, and a pig, which they would very well acheive.

Hey guys, no need to thank me - I just sourced the pix from Google, etc.

Here's the Mahindra Renault website:
: Mahindra Renault :

Still think that this is a fantastic package for the price - & I love the fact that this is the first company that's taking the fight to the Tatas, instead of creating "niche" markets for overpriced vehicles.

Rock on Anand Mahindra!

i dont think the prototype car will be let out for testing without any camouflaging or masking.this has to be the production ready version.and i think it has beige interiors which is great positive compared to the grey interior pics that we have been seeing in pics(dacia)

a person working on the Logan project mentioned (a week ago) that the launch is scheduled for not earlier than April 2007.

@Mpower: the difference of colour in Bumper & metal body is due to Light's angle.. in person the difference wasnt this much noticeable. The paint job was good.

Hmm If its supposed to be Tata competitor with low pricing then this surely would be a nice car. I was dissapointed because I was expecting it to be in the league of Aveo & Fiesta.

@elf: good point there.. now am kinda positive about the car

Yes even I got a similiar response from them in email when I queried them about launch and pricing.

Hi Navdeep,

Thanks for showing interest in Logan.

We will launch Logan in the 2nd quarter of 2007.The car will be available in both Petrol & Diesel variants. We will disclose product details at a later date but our models will definitely offer additional value compared to competition.

We can assure you that the performance will exceed customer expectations and price will be very competitive.

We request you to please register your Name, Address & Telephone Number so that we can communicate our launch plans and other desired information to you.

Regards,
Mahindra Renault
