Dacia grows its Logan MCV family with the introduction of a new rugged ‘lifestyle’ Stepway model

Renault’s self proclaimed value for money brand Dacia has announced a new addition to its Logan MCV family. The ‘Stepway’ branded variant follows in the footsteps of the car maker’s smaller Sandero, offering a rugged exterior look.

Revealed ahead of the forthcoming Geneva Motor Show in March, the new Logan MCV Stepway also boasts extra cabin storage, upgraded equipment and cosmetic design tweaks. Key to the Stepway sub-brand’s appeal is the added rugged ‘lifestyle’ angle which, in the case of the Logan, means an extra 50mm of ground clearance, a chrome skid plate and rugged-looking bumpers.

The new Logan MCV Stepway will be available in premium-level Laureate trim only, featuring MediaNav Evolution, rear parking sensors, air conditioning, DAB radio and Hill Start Assist. Leather upholstery, a reverse parking camera and seat height adjustment package will be extra cost options.

Power will come from a choice of two 90hp engines: one petrol and one diesel, both mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. CO2 emissions are rated at 115g/km and 100g/km respectively. At launch the car will also be offered in two colours, the brand’s iconic Azurite Blue and Mink, plus new 16-inch Stepway Dark Metal Flexwheel wheels.

Boasting a five-seat cabin and a 573-litre boot capacity, the Stepway variant completes the lifestyle transformation with a host of design and functional additions, such as LED daytime running lights, Audi allroad-inspired exterior wheel arch protectors, improved cabin switchgear and higher-grade cabin materials.

Dacia hasn’t revealed exact pricing yet, but if the current gap between the regular Sandero and its Stepway sibling can be used as a guide then you can expect a premium of around £1,000 for the rugged Logan MCV Stepway over its less adventurous-looking stablemate.

The company’s new model offensive, which also includes a special edition Duster and Sandero Stepway is part of its continued global growth plan, which has seen the Renault brand increase market share in Europe and set new sales records.
