Initially an affordable brand, now promoted to “smart buy”, the Dacia marquee is increasingly becoming an off-beat crossover specialist thanks to the popular Stepway lineup.
The Romanian automaker’s Stepway family has had three members until now – the original Sandero Stepway and the newly added Lodgy and Dokker Stepway. Now, right in time for the Geneva Motor Show, there’s a fourth family member – just as practical. The Logan MCV Stepway combines its practicality credentials with the leisure-inspired Stepway guise. Thus, future owners will get to experience a 573-liter boot volume and the 50-millimeter raised clearance of the Stepway lineup.
The design is a classical Stepway affair – two-tone front bumper with a satin-effect chrome skid plate, a more prominent diffuser, as well as a radiator grille with chrome rectangles as first seen on the Duster facelift and now also on the Logan family update. The new lighting signature is also present, with LED daytime running lights. On the side there are protective plastic covers for the wheel arches, as well as Dark Metal door mirror housings. At the back there are darkened taillights, as well as a two-tone bumper and satin-effect chrome skid plate.
The interior carries over from the Logan MCV facelift but adds Sandero Stepway’s upholstery – the new Logan MCV Stepway will only be available based on the top Laureate trim level, with perks such as satellite navigation, rear parking sensors, air conditioning, DAB radio, and Hill Start Assist. Two powertrains are available – gasoline with 90 horsepower and five-speed manual, as well as a 90-hp diesel.
