since when has Logan become the benchmark of quality?

I would certainly love to see Logan sell. But that's not because its a good/bad car. Its because I want the better cars from Renault stable to be seen on Indian roads. Logan be damned.

A large proportion of Indics / Gos / Sumos also sell as Taxis.. HAve also seen many Fiesta Ds. , Innova Ds ( and qualis earlier ) , Taveras , Sumos running as taxis.

Have not seen any manufacturer split their sales figure into taxi and non taxi so far..

2,786 units in May is very good considering that the car wasn't on sale through the full month ( right?) and it hasn't been launched all over the country yet. It's a very good start.

About this thread, I think we are going extremes here. We are oscillating between calling the Logan a success or failure which isn't right. I think we should wait for 3-4 months because the sales figures will settle down then. Remember right now the car is in the honeymoon period so a higher demand and lots of interest (25,000 inquiries) should be expected.

yes over 2k units seems like indians have accepted this car for its positives than for its negatives. this is truly a tolerant country!

i've seen quite a few Logans in the last couple of days on Bangalore roads. None of them appeared to be Taxi ones. Looks like their stupid TV ad is working.

I took a TD as soon as it was launched here and i hated it completely. Indica/Indigo is any day better than Logan.

Must agree with you here. A friend of mine was also saying wide body car, and so on, but those of us who have spotted/seen it dont really feel its any spacious than other offerings.

Guys, why are you forgetting the Qualis, even after seeing may be thousands on the road for last so many years everytime I look at it I wonder how such a dated shape and design could do so well in India. Moral of the story is design, shape etc doesnt matter what matters is price, *** and sturdyness of the car. So dont write off logan yet, wait for 6 months its only then you can range the correct response.

What I meant by the *** in the above post was after sales service and I wrote in an abbreivaiated form and you know now what it mistook it as. These parser's never trust them.

It was launched early April I think.. About 2 months or so for 2786. Despite that, numbers arent bad at all. Does anyone know if the low end petrols or the dCI thats doing the numbers?

i'm inclined to believe its the diesel. because the petrol Logan has decent competition that I believe is better built, i.e. Ford Ikon, Esteem etc.

Does Logan has side impact beam, they do not mention it anywhere. I am surprised that they dont have door beams, it is such an essential safety feature and they omitted just for saving small money. I did not consider Logan just because of this but I guess lot of people disagree with me as they are buying the car .

I saw my first OTR Logan today, but didnt notice it first till it came to my side parallely, at first glimps I thought it was a fiesta but then I saw the badge as it crossed me.

It looks decent enough from the side, although also gives a boxy impression, I think a bigger tyre set will give it a better profile and also the paint finish was as good as woth other manufacturers and the engine noise was atleast lesser than of Indigo/Indica.

Its unneccessarily getting a beating here, its as good as one can get for this price, period.
