Mahindra Renault Limited has been criticised because of their only model Renault Logan's boxy looks and awkward ergonomics. The car although is a right hand drive vehicle but has many features and functions of a left hand drive vehicle. The power windows switches are placed on the centre console instead of the usual placement on the driver's side door. The windshield wipers work in a direction opposite to the standard working of windshield wipers found on other branded vehicles in India. The Hood release lever is located on the passenger side instead of the driver's side.[citation (source) needed]
