Mahindra Renault launches Logan Edge

The Mahindra Renault combine announced the launch of a limited edition version of the Mahindra Logan, the Logan Edge.This is NOT the New Logan which we talked about here. That would take quite some more time to come to India.
If you are looking for visual improvements in the Logan Edge, sorry. Nothing serious has changed as far as looks are concerned.
The major additions in the Limited Edition Logan Edge seem to be the optional ABS in in a petrol and a turbodiesel version, a reverse parking sensor and slightly imprved mileage.
The pricing of the Logan Edge is as follows:
Logan Edge 1.4 GLX petrol - Rs 499,990
Logan Edge 1.6 GLS petrol - Rs 558,338
Logan Edge 1.6 GLSx petrol (ABS) - Rs 578,337
Logan Edge 1.5 DLS turbodiesel - Rs 695,319
Logan Edge 1.5 DLSx turbodiesel (ABS) - Rs 715,319
All prices are ex-showroom Delhi.
The limited edition model, we think, is an attempt to battle the Maruti Swift Dzire, which has hit the sales of the Renault Logan in the last few months.
Parking sensor would of course be a major convenience, as is anti lock braking system (ABS) and electronic brake distribution (EBD) in the Logan Edge.
The Logan Edge also gets better in-car entertainment from a USB/ iPod compatible Kenwood music system. Beige leather upholstery is a new addition, as well as a center console with faux-wood finish.
Mahindra Renault has also introduced a new colour exclusively for the Logan Edge - Mystique Purple, and new body graphics.
