Logan Taxi

In India, unfortunately, TAXI label has a bad name. Actually ,if a vehicle is selected for TAXI/FLEET operation, it means it is the most relaible and cheap to maintain vehicle. TAXI operators cannot afford to have breakdowns affecting their eranings which is directly proportional to the vehicle being on the road and running. Also they cannot affird to pay exhorbitants amounts to maintain teir vehucles like filters , oils etc. Logan is a winner across all fronts - Reliability , Cheap to maintain, excellent comfort in Indian roads and huge boot space .....that's why it is a perfered TAXI.

Across the world customers look at the TAXI operation and assess the vehicle - the most famous TAXI across Europe being the Mercedes-Benz !

So if you want all the best things in a car , you need to look for a TAXI operated model....

I hope its not the other way round- "buy a vip baggage and get a logan free".
@350Z - any info about the reason of such unique collaboration?
This collaboration will suit well in the jokes section. Everytime i read this article i get naughty comments in my mind but restrict myself from posting since it will be OT.

According to Nalin Mehta, CEO, Mahindra-Renault Pvt Ltd, the new Logan Tourer will feature plush interiors and innovative enhancements. Speaking about the company's co-branding with VIP, he said that the idea was to combine the luggage maker's trustworthiness with the Logan's reliability, space and robustness in order to give customers an enhanced package offering. He further said that the new variant adds a whole new dimension of fun and adventure to the Logan's existing value proposition of space, and fuel efficiency.

Is it just an idea to show off the reliability of Logan or the VIP has worked on the interiors.

This collaboration sounds mis-matched, Just that both makers will benefit and gain publicity from each other. Let us see what Logan Tourer has stored-in for us.
And Yes, Who knows we may see a scheme, Buy a Logan and take away VIP suitcase for free. :wink:

I wish they have worked harder on exteriors than before. It wasnt the interior but the outer styling which minimized the sales.

Hmm.. Its not quite an enthrilling move from Renualt.

Logan is almost dead & now needs an make over. All of us knows its has class leading space, But co-branding with VIP is anyway not making to impact on the sales charts.

And the current Logan has a lot of carry-over baggage (wrong word to use here!!) which is very irritating, the biggest of which I guess is the wipers which go in the opposite direction!!
