Dacia Rolls Out 300,000th Logan MCV

Renault's Romanian brand Dacia today produced the 300,000th Logan MCV, the second member of the Logan family that gained worldwide fame especially in the last two years. The 300,000th model, a red five-seater equipped with a 1.5 dCI engine, will be delivered to an Italian customer, the Romanian automaker said in a press statement.

In production since October 2006 and first presented at the Paris Auto Show, Logan MCV received a facelift in 2008 and is currently available in 4 trim levels - Ambiance, Preference, Laureate and Prestige - and sold in two different bodystyles, with five or 7 seats, respectively.

Just like the sedan, there are several diesel and petrol engines available across the range, starting with an 1.4-liter MPI and ending with the top-of-the-range 1.6-liter 16V that develops 105 horsepower and 148 Nm of torque. The model is only offered with a manual transmission and front-wheel drive.

This is the second major achievement for Dacia this year, after the company was recently placed on the second position in the J.D. Power and Associates 2010 Germany Vehicle Ownership Satisfaction Study released a couple of days ago. Dacia's Logan earned the second place in the small car category with 839 points, after Nissan Note (846) but ahead of Toyota Yaris (833).

Dacia was thus tied with German carmaker BMW, both with 836 points, while the leading position was awarded to Mercedes with a score of 838 points. Mazda and Nissan followed on the third position with 831 points.
