Driving the Dacia Logan MPV couldn’t be easier. It’s a fairly honest car and basic, because of the lack of technology there are few buttons, which makes navigating your way around the centre console easy.

The optional Dacia sound system is fairly simple to navigate, albeit a little slow to react. The buttons are also on the small side and Bluetooth can be a pain to link up.

Driving at night is also an experience, as with no big screens or lights in the footwells it can be quite eerie. No reading light in the back could also be problematic for rear passengers.

The materials around the cabin feel quite durable and resistant and do not feel especially cheap considering the price tag.

Dacia Logan MCV comfort levels are average. The seats are fairly comfortable on long journeys although firm suspension can make hard work of potholes and speed bumps.

Because the engine has to labour hard the noise can get a little uncomfortable, especially when climbing up to motorway speeds. There is also quite a lot of wind noise that intrudes into the cabin.

Leg- and head room is in abundance, making for a comfortable ride for rear passengers on long journeys.

One of the biggest downsides is that the driver’s seat is only height adjustable in Laureate trim and locking the doors or winding down the windows manually on a new car is incredibly frustrating if you’re used to mod cons.

But you just need to keep reminding yourself that this car costs from only £6,995 so you cannot expect it to be loaded with kit.
