More Dacia/Renault Sandero variants?

Now, we know for a fact that there will be an faux SUV version of the Dacia/Renault Sandero but latest speculation is suggesting a Sport Tourer. We could say it will derive from the Logan but the renderings have clearly show that Logan is no longer the visual reference to be followed in what relates to Dacia. That can be confirmed by the notchback version of Sandero.

Although it would possibly be a new Logan, Renault in Brazil has sworn Logan will remain in its place. The recent restyling of the sedan, caught in Romania, gives Renault’s statement some credit and the possibility of yet another product to the B0 family. If that applies to Logan, it could as well be the case for Logan MCV.

Sandero was sure to inspire a restyling of Logan’s station, but it may also be the base for the creation of a new station wagon. The question is: would there be space for two station wagons in Dacia’s range? In Europe, it is very likely, but not in emerging countries such as Brazil. This is surely the cause for Renault’s denials on producing Logan MCV in South America, although there is a huge market for compact station wagons in this side of the globe. This would only make sense if Renault did not want to make money or if it had another product to offer, such as a Sandero Grand Tour.

In Europe, the seven-seater MCV could be destined to a working public, while the five-seater Sandero Grand Tour would appeal to small families. If it does go into production, expect the Sandero Sports Tourer to rival the Skoda Fabia estate, Peugeot 207 SW, Dacia Logan MCV and Renault Clio Sports Tourer.
