Under this heavy disguise is the next-gen Dacia Logan. The new saloon is testing ahead of its 2013 launch, but it won’t be sold in the UK because the market favours hatchbacks.
The Logan was the first new Dacia to launch under Renault’s ownership. Its runaway success in emerging markets led to sales in established western European markets, including France and Germany, as well as the glut of new models that followed.
Some reports claim that the new Logan will be a sister car to the Renault Fluence, but a switch to more costly underpinnings is highly unlikely given Dacia’s brand positioning.
