its a Romanian car... was designed to be cheap , but uncompromised in quality... Renault couldnt make it a cheap car in india cause of their plant sharing affair with mahindra!

How can they give a red alloy!!!.It would have been better if they have given silver or gold finish(subru impreza).

Only Renault will be able to explain their idea of giving a red alloy for this car

It is looking slightly better than the one they released earlier. But is it enough to cash on th festive season ? With the refurbished Indigo also up for grabs for 5.2 L ?
Would be interesting to see the October sales chart.

Its a practical car. I like the logan. Think the looks can grow on you.
I might buy one!

Hmm, but, its not a sports car,is it? Red alloys cant make it faster! They might be better off, saying its a practical car, for those who have to drive around with 5 people, etc.

You forgot the spark 'music' edition and the alto 'Fun' thingy.
After looking at the pics, bhai local taxi driver, can aspire for a new ride to 'Play' with.

The official website says that the alloys can be had in red OR silver.
And it also mentions that the Logan Play will "guarantee second looks". Yeah, right, thats how unbelievably ugly that thing is with the body graphics and red alloys!

They should have kept it simple, looks like they are over-trying now!

Sometimes i think, there is some guy in Mahindra-Renault who has either taken money from the competitors or has some personal grudge against the car!

Something that I tried on photoshop to correct the mistakes..

Yikes !
the reds make me wanna pull those parts out of the monitor somehow.
"Horrid" would be an understatement.
These reds would still be manageable had they upgraded the engine/drivetrain/suspension etc.

Irony being : we WILL see some (read many) plying on roads the day it is launched.
Is it really difficult for us to boycott ugly cars ?
Pink estilos?!! Zens with circular bindi-style lamps...

Guys you don't get it. I understood the strategy.
They launched an uglier version so that the previous versions don't look ugly any more .... :-)

Ashutoshb, should say your photo shop design is way ahead of the official Mahindra - Renault version. I still dont know why the design guys from all over are head over heels for the stickers. Cedia, Scorpio MHawk and now I heard the new Endevour also

Sush, rightly said. But then we been hearing that a new facelifted Logan is just around the corner so why a 'play' varient now?
