PostSubject: Unveil Various LOGAN Features   Fri Apr 03, 2009 2:23 pm

Some features apart from standard known ones are listed below.

Centrally Placed Power Window Console:
Most French cars have power window consoles in center. Apart Renault check out Citroen. Other then driving ergonomics reason is to allow fellow passenger if any with the priviledge and access to console. Not necessarily only the driver will have such rights. This is SAFETY FEATURE where in a driver can not be able to hold other passengers on ransom by locking them inside, as in other cars only he has access to power windows and window locks. Poor passengers are helpless and depend on driver console to unlock and provide them their window access.

Front Door Opening Despite Centrally Locked:
This is in fact a safety feature as rightly said. It is to avoid lock up of passengers and driver in unpredictable cases of accident where the central locking mechanism stops functioning causing all doors lock up and no emergency escape route. Imagine you are in your car which is centrally locked and your central locking mechanism suddenly has stopped functioning. Now you are in emergency situation like fire, accident etc. You door simply does not open up....

Maximum Passenger Safety at the Rear:
Logan rear seat comes secured with metal shafts making it very safe from rear. This safety is not only from collision due to accidents but also from various heavy load baggage likely placed in Logan's huge boot space which obviously would be on high momentum in a moving car. Imagine you having some 100 kgs in boot and you brake suddenly at 110 kmph and your rear seat does not have any safety holders to restrict boot load in boot itself. Obviously the boot load shall crash your spinal cords under such circumstances.

Metal Protection For Engine From Beneath:
Only car in this segment to have metal engine guard.

Unbeatable Fuel Economy:
Reports show figures ranging from 11 kmpl till as high as 50 kmpl. If all is not true on an average 15 kmpl is believable, which is excellent economy for a sedan in this segment.

Tubeless tyres as a standard feature:
On indian roads this is a must to escape from surprise punctures.

Widest Sedan on market in its segment:

For me too it is a bit difficult to gulp. However this is what i found.
If some one has some better reason kindly share.

There has to be some reason to this, in case if this does not suffice, as this is the case with many cars.

Engine Hood Release Latch placed opposite to drivers seat: I can tell you why this is on that side it is because OURs are as well. and it is part of the World Logan Build just like your wipers are made for Left hand drive as well

That was obvious! The Logans we get ere are made LHD so the wipers and light/wiper switch and also the hood release all on the other side! I doubt this is any special feature!

i think the designer who designed the RHD version of logan forgot about the wiper placement, wiper,indicator and head light switch and the engine hoop opener.....
so these have been placed the way the LHD version of logan has.....

While this is surely a sore point, I have seen many drivers at petrol bunks, accidentally opening the Bonnet by wrongly pulling the bonnet lever, while fumbling for the fuel release lever.

lol!

Sump Guard Idea: http://www.scorpionsubaru.com/sump.htm

It is not the bumper guard but the one beneath in front, below engine between wheels.

@kaustuv:
with
"Metal Protection For Engine From Beneath:"

what i meant was sump guard

Reportedly first instance in world of a BMW catching fire, occured in ahmedabad wherein all 4 passengers were charred to death.

All happened because of the central locking failing to work when the car caught fire just after a collision with truck.

Logan is definitely safer than a BMW, guys...

PostSubject: Re: Unveil Various LOGAN Features   Wed Aug 12, 2009 12:07 pm

the car was moving at considerable speed.
there was a trailor truck which applied sudden barkes due to some object coming in its front.
car simply based into the trailor at the back and ran under at the back side.

at this point in time cars battery system collapsed. whatever needs a battery wont function now.
also two of four passengers were dead at this moment. two others were not in senses.

truck driver did not realize of anything, and continued moving for some distance. car was dragging by this time in same position further worsening condition.

car caught fire as fuel was leaking and due to drag there were sparks.
at this moment truck stopped, but it was late.

passengers were all charred along with the car.

within moments nothing was left except the chasis.

this is as per what the onlookers narrated.

in this whole story points to be noted:
- BMW in this case do not have the small knob that exists on all doors using which manual locks can be engaged or disengaged.
- door locks are all electronically deployed.
- this leaves BMW with dependancy on battery functioning all the times. this is not a good idea. i wonder how BMW can make such a mistake. strange...
- another thing worth paying attention is even if the central locking is at fault, were the passengers in position to actually disengage the lock and try to get out of the car. they were not in senses with two of them already dead.

i would say it is one of its kind of accident. negligence on driver's part can not be ruled out.

Sure negligence can be there on the driver's part, but i feel the way they have designed the system is not secure, as if the battery or power equipment fails the door wont function and one cant come out manually.

I remember speaking to my auto cop guy who was telling about a similar incident when 4 people got burnt in a car where they were using auto cop security system, this was a new system they have launched in which when the door is locked it cant be open manually as the gun would not function , so even if u pull the lock it wont open. Due to power failure 4 people died in a car as they were not able to open the doors,

After the incident they have again gone back to the older gun model, in which u can manually open the door by pulling and don't have to rely on power.

Hi,

I just recently heard from a service guy that Logan has a speed sensitive steering. I have not observed the same carefully as of now, but has any one of you noticed this feature?

This only means power steering cuts off if you are going at more that 40kmph.
