Introducing the Dacia Logan MCV Stepway
Dacia Logan MCV Stepway is a practical estate that's just about ready for any adventure. The regular Logan, on which the Stepway is based, is perfect for people who want a spacious family estate vehicle that doesn't cost an arm and a leg to buy.
However, if you're the sort of person who spends a lot of time on muddy back lanes and going on cross-country adventures, then you need to consider the Dacia Logan MCV Stepway you see here. In essence, it's a regular Logan that has been jacked-up and fitted with chunkier tyres.
Granted, there's more to the Logan MCV Stepway than that, but you'll have to keep on reading if you want to find out more.
Design and Practicality
Practicality has never been an issue for the regular Logan. After all, it offers a spacious interior that provides enough room for the whole family, while the 573-litre boot is among the biggest in its class. However, the additions that come with the Stepway make the Logan more versatile.
The raised ride height results in more ground clearance underneath, which is ideal for light off-roading. Chunkier tyres do a better job of dealing with Britain's rough roads, ultimately this translates to a more comfortable driving experience.
In addition to the above, the Logan MCV Stepway features protective body mouldings around key areas of the car, such as the bumpers and wheel arches. Topping it all off are the roof bars that come as standard, which are ideal for transporting bicycles or canoes.
Technology and Safety
Unlike the regular Logan, the Stepway is only available in 'Comfort' specification. This isn't a bad thing, because that means you get a smart multimedia system that includes DAB radio, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard.
You also get necessities such as manual air-conditioning, a heated rear window, and electric windows in both the front and rear. The height adjustable driver's seat and steering wheel ensure it's easy enough to find your perfect driving position.
Safety features are well covered. Features such as Hill Start Assist, cruise control and rear parking sensors take the stress out of daily driving. Meanwhile, you have Anti-lock brakes (ABS), Emergency Brake Assist (EBA) and a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System helping to keep you in control of the vehicle.
Economy and Performance
There are two different engines to choose from, which consist of a regular petrol unit and a bi-fuel option that uses liquid-petroleum gas (LPG).
The single petrol option is a 0.9-litre engine that recruits the help of a turbocharger and produces 90 bhp. Emissions are low at 120 g/km, while owners can expect up to 45.6 mpg with mixed driving. Paired with a manual gearbox, this version can achieve 0-62 mph in 12.4 seconds.
If you're after greater efficiency and a quieter drive, then you'll want to consider the bi-fuel option. Essentially, the 1.0-litre engine can run on either regular petrol or LPG. The result of this combination is that owners can expect up to 47.1 mpg on a combined cycle, with emissions as low as 116 g/km.
