Renault has announced plans to introduce the redesigned Symbol at the Istanbul Motor Show.

Essentially a rebadged Dacia Logan, the Symbol features conservative styling with a prominent grille, blacked out B-pillars and distinctive taillights.

Interior pictures were not released, but cabin can be equipped with cruise control, USB/Bluetooth connectivity and a 60/40-split folding rear bench seat. Higher end variants can also be ordered with a Renault Media Nav infotainment system that has a seven-inch touchscreen display.

Engine options include a TCe 90, dCi 75 and dCi 90. Specifications were not released, but the 0.9-liter three-cylinder petrol will likely produce 90 HP (66 kW) and 135 Nm (100 lb-ft) of torque. Likewise, the 1.5 dCi diesel should have outputs of 75 HP (55 kW) and 200 Nm (147 lb-ft) of torque as well as 90 HP (66 kW) and 220 Nm (162 lb-ft) of torque.

The Renault Symbol will be launch in Turkey early next year, before going on sale in Algeria and Tunisia.
