Promising review of Lodgy by Top Gear Inida.
I think Lodgy will be a success because it ticks the space department pretty well.

On the report, the torque figure is stated as 245Nm instead of 248Nm. Not sure if it's a typo or the real deal. Shame that it dons 15 inchers! I really was expecting 16 but then you can't have it all. Just can't wait for the price reveal. Any news about the colours, gentlemen?

Was checking out some hi-res pics on ACI and here's one I have a query on. Any ideas, gentlemen? Do I see twin parking lamps?

Top most is DRL only not low beam.

Main housing has high/low beam plus parking lamp at the bottom. What you caption as "what's this" is the reflection of the parking lamp.

Thanks Vid6639! Glad that DRL comes as standard albeit being a filament than a LED. Looks like they've retained this from the Euro spec which is good. Looking forward to the review!

This is GTO's quote on the Duster review thread

An inappropriate name, don't you think? To most of us, Duster = Cloth used to dust furniture.
With Lodgy, it's one more to add on to that list.

Its 185/15 inches. Agree it has to be 16 at least and I'm not sure if it can be replaced yet.

Given the numerous Russian, Romanian and other reviews I have watched of both the Dacia and Renault Lodgy, I can say these:
1. With three rows up, there still is reasonable boot space to haul 1-2 midsized suitcases.
2. The third row is spacious for individuals that are 5 ft or less.
3. There is a prominent handle or lever on the 60% section of middle rows that can be used by 3rd row passengers for a self serviced exit. (good)
4. Euro NCAP score of 3 or thereabouts. Scores better for adults than children.
5. The side crash with barrier placed at height penetrated the vehicle approx 2 feet, but curtain bags saved the day. Not sure there will be 6 airbags in the Indian version.
6. Nothing gorgeous or offensive about the looks, just a perfect vehicle that ticks many boxes (quoting ACI)
7. Sold in 41 countries globally.
8. Captain seats are available, so cannot understand the debate about second row seats.
9. Sure to rock Innova if the price difference is > 3 lacs or more.
10. Checkmate for Mobilio.

Bring it on Renault

Seen many reviews for Lodgy, looks good but not great. Eagerly waiting for T-BHP review now, hope its in pipeline already. Pricing is going to be key for this car. This car is surely going to take on with Innova mainly. Price it at least 2 Lacs less than it and you will get good response for sure. Innova is mainly used as a luxury cab so higher Fuel efficiency of this is car is a big plus for Renault. Ertiga will remain untouched by this car & will keep smiling, but Mobilio needs to worry more now

Is anyone booking/planning to book the Lodgy? Does anyone have information about booking in Chennai? Has the booking started, gentlemen? I will be in India by April end and if dealers are taking a booking I can have someone book it for me. Eagerly awaiting your response, gentlemen.

What is this = H1 high Beam
Low Beam = H7
Below Low Beam = Parking Lamp
The DRL buld is a low wattage bulb and cannot be low beam.
