Dacia has made a series of updates to the Sandero and Logan MCV, in Europe’s largest right-hand drive market.
The most significant improvement is the addition of the 1.0-liter three-cylinder gasoline engine to the Laureate trim of both cars. It produces the same power as the 1.2-liter unit – 75PS (74hp), but it’s said to be up to 10 percent more efficient.
When equipped with the SCe 75 unit, the Sandero returns 54.3 UK mpg (45.2 US mpg 5.2 l/100 km), in the NEDC combined cycle and emits 117 g/km of CO2, while the Logan MCV achieves 52.3 UK mpg (43.5 US mpg / 5.4 l/100 km) and 120 g/km of CO2. Going from 0 to 62mph (100km/h) takes a very long 14.2sec and 14.7sec, respectively, while top speed is 98mph (158km/h) in both cars.
Dacia is also offering the Height Adjustment pack as standard to the Ambiance trim level, which consists of height adjustment for the driver’s seat, steering wheel, and seatbelts, and was previously available as an option.
Prices for the Sandero Laureate SCe 75 start from £8,595 ($11,170), while the Logan MCV Laureate SCe 75 can be had from £9,895 ($12,860). Both of them can already be ordered, but deliveries will begin later this year.
