U Spy: 2013 Renault Fluence Facelift and New Dacia Logan and Sandero

Quite a day for one of our readers from Romania, Cristi H., who spotted not one, not two but four prototype models traveling together on the highway.

As Cristi rightfully pointed out to us, two of the cars are the facelifted Renault Fluence sedan while the other two are the Dacia Sandero five-door hatchback and the Logan four-door sedan.

This is first time we have seen a prototype of the 2013 Renault Fluence, which is a compact saloon also sold as the Samsung SM3 in South Korea.

The strategically placed camouflage on one of the test cars suggests that the updated Fluence will obtain a different fascia sporting Renault’s new styling identity with a wide grille encompassing the brand’s logo, and possibly revised headlamps and bumper designs.

At the rear end of the car, we may see some tweaks to the graphics of the taillights.

While we have snapped the next generations of the Dacia Sandero hatchback and its Logan sedan sibling before, these prototypes were less heavily camouflaged affording us a better look at their silhouettes. Both models are expected to go on sale sometime next year.

Multe mulţumiri to Christi for the spy shots!
