With no height adjustment for the steering wheel or driver’s seat until you reach Comfort trim, the most affordable Access and Essential models make it rather difficult to find a comfortable driving position. And, while every Logan MCV provides plenty of range in the manual seat base and backrest adjustment, you’ll not find lumbar support adjustment on any model, even as an option.

The driver’s seat itself isn’t particularly supportive; it feels quite flat at the base and lets you roll around too much in tight bends. The pedals line up with the seat nicely, though, and the climate controls are simple to reach and operate, if not particularly substantial in feel. The plastics used on the Logan’s dash are structurally sturdy but, as they already looked low-rent on the old-generation Clio they’re borrowed from, they appear decidedly cheap these days. You won’t find any soft-touch surfaces, even on top Comfort trim, although the gloss black finishing around its infotainment screen and on its door handles adds a small element of smartness.

Not every Logan MCV provides an infotainment system of any description. The entry-level Access has wiring in place for you to fit a radio, but there’s no actual radio included. Essential trim gives you a basic radio with DAB and Bluetooth functionality, but you’ll need to stretch to either Comfort or Techroad trims for a touchscreen system. Fortunately, although this 7.0in unit looks pretty basic, it’s easy enough to navigate and comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring.

The Stepway version is also offered in special-edition Techroad trim, which is mostly a cosmetic upgrade and features unique red and grey upholstery, with red accents on interior surfaces and on the wheel caps. It’s also only available with red or grey paintwork.
