DUSTER WIPES FLOOR WITH PRICIER RIVALS by Plymouth Herald

ROMANIAN maker Dacia's modern era really started in 1999 with the purchase of the company by Renault. The French marque's master plan was to create a nameplate able to take Renault technology and apply it to modern products saleable at astonishing low prices. Cars like this one - the Dacia Duster.

Old-era Dacias were Renault models built under licence. Modern ones have unique Dacia design with Renault running gear under the skin, this particular car targeting the growing market for Qashqai-like crossovers and Freelander-style compact SUVs.

These are vehicles which tend to be priced anywhere between £17,000 and £30,000 depending on your preferences, figures way beyond the frankly astonishing entry-level price for this Duster.

Is Britain's Cheapest Estate, The Dacia Logan MCV, Worth It? by Carscoops

Not actuallty a video!

Priced from £6,995, the Dacia Logan MCV is Britain's most affordable estate model on sale. And that's a key element to consider when reviewing this car, as Carbuyer's Ginny Buckley found out.

The car tested was the entry-level model equipped with the base 75hp 1.2-liter petrol engine, which wasn't deemed potent enough to deal with a Logan MCV loaded with people and their stuff. The 90hp 1.5-liter dCi diesel would be more recommendable for this sort of car thanks to the better fuel economy and greater torque.

The Logan MCV feels like a budget car to drive: it's not terrible, but it lacks refinement because of the noise and vibration coming up through the floor. The transmission can be a pain to get into gear at times, while the steering is found as stiff and heavy.

It's not a very comfortable car either, and that's because of the hard seats and harsh ride. But there's a bright side: it's got an enormous boot, there's space for three adults on the passenger seat and it costs… just under seven grand.

See article at Carscoops with video.
