Dacia launches Logan Pick-up in
Dacia Logan Pick-up is the latest
addition to the Logan family, which already includes a saloon,
an estate and a van. It is made at the Pitesti plant, in
Romania, and addresses the needs of both business users (tradespeople
and merchants) and private motorists looking for a practical
leisure vehicle. Dacia Logan Pick-up naturally boasts all the
hallmark qualities of the Logan family.
With a choice of Renault petrol
and diesel engines, and a chassis carried over from Logan MCV,
Logan Pick-up is eminently modern and robust. And it is superbly
practical, with an 800kg payload, a maximum load length of 1.80m
and 300 litres of stowage space behind the seats in the cabin.
Dacia Logan Pick-up offers
unbeatable value for money. It will be launched on the Romanian
market in March 2008 at a starting price of 7250 euros.
Dacia Logan Pick-up’s most salient
feature – the pick-up bed itself – is designed to last. It
carries a payload of up to 800kg, and comes as standard with a
protective surround that prevents damage to the bodywork during
loading operations, and easily resists loads up to 100kg. The
tailgate is designed with robustness and safety uppermost in
mind, and will resist loads up to 300kg when open, a capability
usually only found on larger pick-ups.
The bed floor, sides and cabin
partition are especially corrosion-proofed and there are two
ducts at the front to drain out rainwater.
Dacia Logan Pick-up has all the active and
passive safety features of Dacia Logan MCV. Like all vehicles in the
Logan range, it is built on the B0 platform, derived from the
Renault-Nissan Alliance’s B platform, as used by Renault Modus, Renault
Clio II, Renault Clio III and Nissan Micra. The suspension has been
designed for sound, balanced response under all circumstances. The front
suspension uses the MacPherson layout featured on Renault Clio II, with
wishbone arm and non-damped cradle. As on other B-platform vehicles, the
reinforced rear suspension uses a programmed deflection H-type torsion
beam, plus coil springs and extended-travel vertical dampers, consistent
with the poor road conditions on many of the car’s markets. There’s a
front antiroll bar as standard.
