I didn't really know where to say this but:
I was thinking earlier today, the Dacia Logan MCV is on sale here, but I haven't seen a single one, why aren't they popular? People here like cheap, basic stuff (try finding a top spec used car of any brand on the used market, you can't) so you'd think they'd be pop. They're at least 1/3 less than the next estate up, right?
Well I discovered why.
Even on the website of Dacia they advertise the price difference of the Logan MCV compared to the closest rivals and the massive price difference from a Dacia MCV to a Škoda Fabia Combi / Seat Ibiza ST (same price) is a whopping (drum roll please) 1800€
to go from this:
So you only need to pay 1800€ more (so ~15.000€ instead of ~13.000€) to get amazing resale value, more reliable products, brand new products, automatic windows, heated seats, proper seat adjustment, split folding seats, an infotainment system, a colour other than white, alloy wheels, celebrated styling, ergonomic interior, good quality plastics, etc. for only 1800€ more.
Why do they even try
