Dacia Logan MCV Stepway (2017 – 2019) Review

Dacia Logan MCV Stepway (2017 – 2019) At A Glance

+Still very good value for money. TCe engine is ideal for around town.

-Diesel is economical but noisy.

On average it achieves 81% of the official MPG figure

The Logan MCV Stepway is only be available in the range-topping Laureate trim, which means standard equipment will be high, with LED daytime running lights, alloy wheels, roof rails and navigation. 

What’s more, being a Stepway model, the Logan MCV gets some rugged extras, including increased ground clearance (174mm), satin-effect chrome skid plate, front fog lights and plastic cladding for the wheel arches and door sills.

There are two 90PS engines to choose from – one petrol and one diesel – and the most-efficient will be the 1.5-litre dCi 90 diesel, which will return an advertised 100g/km of CO2 and 72.4mpg.

The 0.9 TCe 90 petrol in comparison will provide an official 115g/km of CO2 and 55.4mpg. Both are linked to a five-speed manual transmission and front-wheel drive. Dacia has no plans to offer an automatic or four-wheel drive.

Bootspace will be identical to the standard model, which means the Logan MCV Stepway will provide 573 litres of boot space with the rear seats in place. Flatten the second row and storage increases to 1518 litres and all models gets electric door mirrors, height-adjustable driver’s seat and a colour touchscreen.

Metallic paint (£495), reversing camera (£200) and leather seats (£500) will all be available as options. Standard navigation will also be limited to the UK, which means you'll have to pay £90 to get maps for Western Europe.

Which used automatic estate car should I buy?
"We bought a 2019 Astra Sport Tourer 1.0 with 12,000 miles on it for £10,000. It was a great car for the first three months - comfy, quick enough, economical. Then a plethora of issues manifested (all fixed under warranty) including a new engine and gearbox. The car has been in the garage for best part of four months. Once we get it back, we're thinking to get rid of it immediately but what to replace it with? The courtesy car we have been given is an automatic and now my wife would prefer an auto box. We might be lucky to offload the Astra for £9,000. A similarly specced Skoda Octavia estate auto would be around £16,000 which is another £7,000 on top of the Astra and so I'm not sure it represents value for money. We like the Hyundai i30 estate but petrol models seem to be like hen's teeth. We use the car for our dog walking business and mainly do short journeys. "
Prices on cars have soared since the first quarter of this year so your money won't go as far as it did at the start of the year. To get a car to your specification – a 2019 automatic estate – a budget of £15,000 is realistic. Nothing wrong with the Hyundai i30 or the Skoda Octavia. The Skoda has slightly more room, feels nicer inside and is better designed, however the Hyundai has a five-year warranty also take a look at the Kia Ceed or Optima both are around £15,000 and have a seven-year warranty. For a budget option, the Dacia Logan is well worth considering – you'll get a 2019 model for less than £10,000, although it isn't available with an auto. The Dacia is fairly basic but represents unbeatable value. We doubt the dogs will complain.

I need to replace my aging Estate, what do you think to Dacia's range of cars?
"My Skoda Fabia Estate is thirteen years old and is causing me to spend money each time I have an MoT so I'm considering a new car. My budget will allow up to £9000 expenditure and I would like your opinion of the Dacia range of cars. I'm used to a sunroof and a large boot. Petrol preferably as I do an average of 5000 miles per year."
Dacias are good cars. They're a bit basic compared to more mainstream rivals, but they offer very good value for money. If you need the luggage capacity of an estate, a Logan would be a good choice. Your budget will get you an entry-level Access model, but I'd look for a higher-spec nearly-new or pre-registered model (https://www.honestjohn.co.uk/best-pre-reg-and-nearly-new-car-deals/). Other than that, there aren't many small estate cars. It might be worth considering another Fabia - your budget will get you a model from 2016.
