In the future, the Dacia Logan might have as an option an automatic gearbox, but this will be done only if the demand is enough to justify the extra investment.
Even as the decision hasn’t been taken yet, the fact that five pages of the Dacia Logan manual treats the use of an automatic gearbox with the car, including pictures, hints at the future.
And it might come sooner than the producer is willing to let us believe. According to the marketing director from Dacia, the car will continue to be sold for another 3-4 years and the manual also talks about possible improvements in this area.
There were no requests for automatic gearboxes in Romania, otherwise Dacia would offer them with the Dacia Logan, also said the Dacia manager.
While in Romania, France and Italy (countries where Dacia Logan sells best) the number of cars with automatic gearboxes are below 5% in general, in Germany, Holand and Great Britain they count for over 50% of the market.
So, while the demand exists somewhere, we can hope that the Dacia Logan will also get this option in the future.
