Introduction

The Dacia Logan MCV five-seater estate was launched in Europe in March 2012 but it took more than a year to arrive on the UK market. However it has managed to make a significant impact, being able to lay claim that in its most basic Access form, it's the cheapest estate car money can buy.

Okay, your Access comes in one colour - white with contrasting black bumpers and wears austerity chic steel wheels, but what do you expect for £7295?

The MCV (for Maximum Capacity Vehicle) is a more conventional estate than its predecessor. That car sat on a long-wheelbase and could double as a seven seater. This one, which sits on the same platform as the Sandero, can't quite do that, but it's still a commodious estate, with a 573-litre load bay with the rear seats up - and 1518 litres with them down. You're looking at Focus/Astra levels of room at sub-Fiesta money.

And that makes it a compelling buy. Even in its most loaded Laureate form, which costs £10,795, it undercuts all of its rivals by a significant margin. You're not buying a stylish, or prestigious car, but it's an honest package that chimes nicely with these times of austerity-led belt-tightening. For that reason, it's a significant new arrival on the market. Don't let that low price put you off adding it to your shopping list.:
