Default Mahindra Renault Logan In Oman - 23 people stuffed inside 1 Logan

We know that Logan is one of the most spacious Sedans around. In Oman Logan could accommodate 23 people in it. Here is the pic. A lot of thoughts arise in my mind, looking at this pic. Firstly, that Logan sure is one spacious car. Secondly, it is amusing what people can do to get famous. Thirdly, the guys cramped up inside the car are so into each other (if you know what I am getting at).

Nonetheless, congrats to Logan for accomplishing this feat.

In our old Fiat(Premier Padmini) even we had fitted 13 members when going for a marriage many times way back in 1994/95 in our town

i must say this is a senseless commercial. New tactic to sell a car with outdated looks!

practically speaking, how long one can go with 23 people in the car

PS: I agree that the Logan is very spacious!

What a terrible idea to promote

From the pics, it looks like everything inside except the dash and steering wheel might be removed

Doesn't appear to be an official adv./marketing campaign at all to me. But it speaks volumes about the space inside.


Did a 9 college going teenagers in a M800 in 1998 (with no one in the boot).

This is insane.
I'm wondering how can the person drive with 23 people onboard
Or was this for some kinda Guiness records?

The car is not going to go anywhere with 23 people inside. It is not road legal to do that, so no one will allow it.

But yes, this is just a campaign by Mahindra Renault to display how spacious the car is.

I dont think this communicates anything other than how stupid and pathetic Renault are.
