Romanian car maker Dacia, owned by French Renault, has unveiled two new car models ahead of the Geneva Car Show: the new Dacia Logan MCV and the limited series Duster Adventure, the car maker announced. The Geneva Car Show will take place between March 7 and 17, but some car makers announce new models a few days before the start of the fair.
The new five-seater Dacia Logan MCV, whose original model was launched in 2006, can be ordered in the second half of this year, at a similar price to previous Logan MCV models. So far, Dacia sold over 360,000 Logan MCVs in 40 countries.
The limited series 4×4 Duster Aventure is equipped for those who fancy offroading, or at least want to appear so . The new series will be sold in 16 countries starting April this year.
Last year, Dacia launched the new models for Dacia Logan, Sandero and Sandero Stepway at the Geneva Car Show.
Renault bought the Romanian car manufacturer in 1998 and turned Dacia into an international brand and raised production in Pitesti from 86,000 vehicles in 1999 to over 340,000 in 2010. According to Bloomberg, other car manufacturers struggle to match the prices of Dacia models, which is giving the brand an edge in the global car markets. Dacia sold 343,000 cars worldwide in 2011.
