The Logan MCV is a fairly practical-looking thing that has one of the best carrying capacities in its class. Take something like a Skoda Fabia estate as a competitor. That fronts up with 480-litres of boot space with the rear seats in place and 1,485-litres of total capacity when they're folded. The Logan MCV is notably bigger, with 573-litres in the luggage bay and up to 1,518-total capacity. Look at those figures and you might assume that with these broadly similarly sized cars, the Skoda maybe compensates by offering more rear seat space than the Dacia. But get into the back of the Logan MCV and it feels anything but pinched.
We should talk about the changes made to this revised model which gets a revised front end design showcasing Dacia's new lighting signature flanking a revised honeycombed grille. Go for the 'Stepway' version and you get flared wheelarches, roof rails and a higher 174mm ground clearance.
Whatever Logan MCV model you choose, you'll find a smarter interior than was offered before, with satin-effect chrome finishing to lift the dashboard, a revised steering wheel and some softer-touch surfaces on upper-spec variants. Dacia has even moved the electric window switches from the centre console to a more conventional place on the doors.
As for practicality, well the interior arrangement is clever, offering no less than 16-litres of handy, accessible stowage features, such as front and rear door bins, cubbies and a storage tray on top of the dashboard. The luggage compartment cover (available on some versions) has a rigid upper section with additional interior stowage capability. The easy-to-use 2/3-1/3 split/folding rear bench, standard on all variants, makes for maximum versatility.
