Here at DCB Towers we like our cars, because we are so called journalists working from a rat infested basement in Piccadilly, London we actually get paid less than the rats who make a lucrative living eating scraps. It’s a tough life and even we mut admit out collective motivation wanes but then we get news which makes doing this job worthwhile. We get news which could change the face of humanity for the good. Such news arrived just the other day when Dacia revealed the UK price and spec of the Logan MCV Stepway.
The so called New Logan MCV Stepway is based on the recently revised New Logan MCV, this product planning without the extra expense of tooling for a new model, the Logan Stepway is is just a Logan MCV with a raised ride height. This is styling for people who don’t care much for style just as long as its cheap to buy, own and run that’s all that matters to these people.
The problem is that Dacia’s feel as though they were engineered in 1984, noting wrong with that but let me remind you this is the 21st Century, the quality of cars have improved considerably. Dacia is like a hippy from the 1960’s who still hasn’t grasped its 2017. But let’s be fair the average Dacia customer is akin to an Easy Jet customer about to set off on Holiday to Spain.
You know what they are like, bum bag, neatly trimmed beard – including the women – hates foreigners, immigrants, minorities and spends most of his/her holiday in expat communities while railing against immigrant communities for not integrating into UK societies. But it get’s worse, Dacia is owned – and worryingly so – engineered by Renault.
Nevertheless the Stepway’s claim to automotive infamy is that it has a impressive boot space of 573-litres – one of the largest amongst any segment in the market. The New Logan MCV Stepway is available in Lauréate trim offering a high specification as standard.
Like all car companies Dacia moves and swings with the times the Stepway now incorporates LED Daytime Running Lights in the form of four stacked rectangles. We are told this is a modern design which results in a visibly wider look for the front end of the Logan MCV Stepway.
The New Logan MCV Stepway Lauréate comes in a choice of nine colours at launch, combined with new but pathetically sized 16-inch alloy wheels. In keeping with Dacia’s no frills experience the interior gets no frills upgrades… cheap fuckers.
In their favour the when combined with the Lauréate trim, the updated Logan MCV Stepway has a high standard of specification including heated and electrically adjustable door mirrors, rear parking sensors, height-adjustable driver’s seat and seven-inch touchscreen with MediaNav infotainment system which includes USB and AUX sockets, Bluetooth connectivity and satellite navigation with GB and Northern Ireland mapping… Now we’re interested, the heated door mirrors have perked our interest.
The New Logan MCV Stepway is available with a choice of two economical engines – the well-proven TCe 90 petrol – with CO2 as low as 115g/km and fuel economy of 55.4mpg (NEDC combined) – and the dCi 90 diesel – with CO2 as low as 100g/km fuel economy of up to 72.4mpg (NEDC combined) . Both come with a five-speed manual transmission.
The updated Dacia Logan MCV Stepway is priced from £11,495 and will available to order now with UK deliveries commencing from June.
