The Romanian based automaker Dacia is planning to drop the Logan name in 2013, which is currently used on the low-cost sedan, sold under Dacia, Renault or even Nissan logos.
Even if there is no official word on this news from the Renault’s sub-brand just yet, the guys at autolatest.ro are saying that the Dacia Logan will be sold under a different name starting with 2013, and this might actually mean that a new generation of the Romanian low-cost sedan might hit the market. Unfortunately we don’t have any other details on this subject so we will just have to wait to see what Dacia has under its sleeves.
As a small reminder, the Dacia Logan has been in production ever since 2004 and it’s currently being assembled in Romania, Brazil, Colombia, India, Iran, Morocco, Russia and South Africa. The Dacia Logan is also known as the Renault Logan, Nissan Aprio, Mahindra Verito, Renault Tondar 90 and Lada Largus, depending on its market. The Logan has replaced the old Dacia 1310 and it’s being offered as a small family car in four-door sedan, five-door station wagon, five-door van and two-door utility. The Dacia Logan is coming with a front engine, front-wheel drive layout, with a choice of six engines and two transmissions.
