Default 2013 Dacia Logan

Very few details as of now. A French website has given out the following information, quoting sources:

2012 Dacia Logan

- Exterior design will resemble Renault Fluence.
- Will come with LED daytime running lights.
- Existing engines will be retained, but will have lower carbon emissions, better fuel efficiency.
- Codename X52.

What I am dreaming about here is that the X52 would perfectly fit in Renault's India lineup below the Fluence. They will never name it the Logan due to obvious reasons.

Seems like they miss number of generations in between.

It might be a Dacia, but I'm a bit skeptic about it being a Logan replacement. That design is light years ahead of the present Logan. This car can very well take on the ANHC,Fiat Linea and VW Vento if Renault chooses to launch it in India.

Looks good indeed. The way Renault is going in the market, it will be an ideal candidate to spruce things up in the bottom of the car-chain for them.

Wow thats a nice looking car. Very Manly, i like it.
I dont think it will make it to India as Renault have a rebadged Sunny in the form of the Scala.

I feel this Logan would have made more sense as a long term strategy in India.

This Logan would look lovely with a Renault Badge.

Good to see some Renault design elements trickle down to the Logan. For example, those tail-lamps seem straight off the DS 3 hatchback. But overall, a very pleasing looking car.

Here's a promotional video of the 2013 Dacia Logan.

Car looks very handsome and if Renault ever decides to introduce this car in India, it will be writing another success story for sure!!

As Andy grove of intel once said, if you must, cannibalize your own sales, lest somebody else cannibalize them from you.

Given this it makes sense to bring in the new Logan. Maybe rename it, but still.

The pics remind me quite a bit of the Mahindra verito. Both are evolutions of the original Logan. Pricing this cheaper than the scala will give them a presence between the pulse and scala. Ala the Maruti philosophy of building lots of similar models

Seems unlikely because Renault had to sign some papers stating that they will not sell the Logan in India after the Renault - Mahindra JV dissolved. (This does not apply to cars based on the Logan platform, like the Sandero and the Duster) Besides, Renault has no plans of bringing the Logan back anyway. This has been stated rather categorically by a Renault's Jerome Stoll, (executive VP) Sad, because this car is quite a looker and would have certainly done well.
