The Dacia Logan is now in its third generation, and its parent company Renault is releasing its own badge on the basics sedan to sell it in markets where the Dacia Logan is no longer available. The information was revealed this month in Turkey, which is also known that the new model will get a new name, Renault Taliant, replacing the Symbol the company has been using since 1999 when it was debuted as a second-generation Clio sedan.
The new Renault Taliant is basically a rebadged Dacia Logan. Although, you will notice that the headlights and taillights have a different design as they are more in line with current models with the diamond logo. Perhaps the most obvious change in the Renault Taliant is at the back where the C-shaped taillights widen onto the trunk lid.
Renault also made some changes to the front grille design to give it a Clio sedan look, it was further highlighted by the reshaped headlight clusters. A two-tone alloy wheel design divides it from the Dacia Logan, and that’s about it concerning exterior changes.
Interior images have not been seen yet, even though it’s unlikely to stray away from the donor car. It should be the most accommodating models in its class, not that there are many sedans left in the B segment regardless now that crossovers and SUVs have taken over.
Details regarding what’s under the hood of the Renault Taliant have not been revealed yet, but we’re expecting the vehicle to have a three-cylinder engine and no diesel. Relying on the engine, the Renault Taliant will probably be provided with a six-speed manual gearbox and a constant variable transmission. A bi-fuel engine is also offered for the Dacia Logan by accepting liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), making it the most frugal powertrain of the bunch and an indirect change of the four-cylinder 1.5-liter dCi.
