Pardon the picture quality , its been taken from my puny 2mp phone cam.
That car is an insult to the dealership. Looks like the alloys were designed by some guys from Hero Honda who had excess of red paint which they use on their bikes.

Guys I think they are inspired by the new film Quick Gun Murugan.
Some super duper designer told them stickers are the way to go these days. Probably we are too old not to recognize those latest fashion.
I am going to buy some stickers and stick it on my suits, shoes and drive around in a Logan Blay. Mind it..

here is the perfect quote for this play - "Why God Why?? Why are you doing this to us!" Joey from friends

All i can say is that they should paint the whole thing black. Including the lights and especially the logos.

ps: the seat covers look nice though.

This looks hideous. Yeah I think it like euthanasia for LOGAN. They should get their act together and launch Sandero or the MPV kind of vehicles instead of flogging the dead horse.

One Word - Terrible.
I think the only way to increase the sales is to price logan at 3.3 Lakhs.
Then a probable customer may "think".

I never thought they could make the Logan look worse... but they did!!

The only good thing is, that the RED alloys are optional. One can also get them in Silver (according to the website)

Looks UGLY to me! Edge was looking much much better in the violet color. I personally was a HUGE fan of Edge and felt that was a VFM car!

Mystery why Renault continues to flog itself. The Logan is a spent force. They must recognize the mistake whether in model choice, pricing or positioning and move on lesson learned.

This is purely a marketing exercise, and a misdirected one at that, and will do little to rejuvenate sagging sales.

Sorry for the cynicism but given the models they have in hand, difficult to understand their entry strategy.

Default Logan Play

The new version of the Logan which is called the Logan play isn't bad at all.
I mean Mahindra-Renault has not done anything with the engine part and that is very good and the only change in the Logan is with the graphics part.
As for as looks are concerned these looks are not bad at all and the new graphics which have been installed in the car are also decent enough to attract many. The Logan play in terms of performance will be no different from that of the previous Logan. Talking in terms of the performance level of the logan we can definitely say that the logan had a much better performance level than that of the cars in the similar segment and price range and thus this car is a good one in terms of performance. The Logan Play gives you a mileage of around 12-14 (petrol) and around 14-18 (diesel), which is very good considering the mileage for sedans in the Indian market.

So for me the Logan is a very good car and so are the new looks for the new version called Logan PLAY.

Default Logan is a good deal altogether

Whether we talk about the original Logan, Logan Edge or the latest Logan Play, Logan is always going to remain a Value for Money proposition. It is a good car. It is very economical. I personally don't own this car but i have observed that Logan buyers are the people who put a lot of thought process in the value for money and economy of a car. For them, Logan is the best option. Moreover, there are still some number of buyers for Logan. So it is not completely out as yet.

As far as Logan Play is concerned, it is a stunning car. The red rims might be a little imposing but with silver rims it is a stunning sporty car.
