Parkers overall rating: 3.5 out of 5 3.5

Since value-for-money is an important part of what this car is about, Dacia Logan MCV running costs are pretty low. Unsurprisingly, the most economical engine of the range is the 1.5dCi diesel engine which achieves 74.3mpg on the official test cycle. The 0.9-litre petrol engine also fares quite well with an official figure of 56.5mpg and the 1.2 16v petrol engine still performs competitively with 48.7mpg.

Dacia Logan MCV’s CO2 emissions across the range are competitive. The best of the range is the 1.5 dCi diesel engine that emits 99g/km. The 0.9 TCe petrol engine, despite having more power available, is the cleanest of the two petrol engines available with 119g/km of CO2 emissions while the 1.2 16v petrol engine manages a disappointing 135g/km.

Although we have no previous data as the car is a brand new model, we can expect that Dacia Logan MCV reliability will be fairly good.

It shares mechanical parts with Renault and the petrol and diesel engines are well proven. With any new car brand buyers tend to be wary, but with the Renault dealer network behind it, problems should be easily solved.
