What's not so good
Dacia Logan MCV Stepway: what would you like to read next?
On paper, the Dacia Logan Stepway comes with a very generous supply of safety features, including Hill Start Assist – which keeps the footbrake applied as you move your foot to the gas pedal – cruise control, rear parking sensors, a speed limiter, and driver, passenger and side airbags. There’s also an emergency brake assist system that automatically slows the car if you’re on your way to having a low-speed crash.
The infotainment system is comprised of a 7.0-inch touchscreen display, which has a DAB digital radio, built-in satnav and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility as standard. That’s an impressive list of equipment, then – you’d need to buy a top-of-the-range Tipo to compete with that, which starts from £19,850.
There may only be one trim available for the Stepway, but the features you get with it rival a top-of-the-range Tipo.
Despite there only being a single variant of the Logan MCV Stepway, the car has two engine options: a 0.9-litre, 90hp petrol and a 1.5-litre, 95hp diesel. Both engines are economical, but the latter is a better bet if you’re frequently driving on the motorway, where it will return better fuel economy. That said, the petrol is marginally quicker from 0 to 62mph (12.4 seconds versus the diesel’s 12.6).
We’re yet to drive the Dacia Logan MCV Stepway, but we’ll have driving impressions for you just as soon as we have.
