Default Dacia Lodgy

Mod Note: Our Renault Lodgy Report has been taken live at this link (Renault Lodgy : Official Review). Please continue the discussion over on the new thread. Thanks!

Dacia launched its LODGY MPV at the Geneva Motor Show, latest addition to its family consisting the following :

Logan: saloon, estate (MCV), van and pick-up versions,
Sandero: saloon and Stepway (SUV-style) versions,
Duster: an SUV, with 4x2 or 4x4 transmission

Its name, Lodgy, is derived from the English word 'lodge' and refers directly to the model's ability to comfortably accommodate a family and its luggage. The MPV will be available in a five and seven seater configurations


It offers oodles of space in the cabin with its 4.5 m length and 1.76m width. The third row features class-leading space in terms of knee and head room (144 and 866mm respectively), which is more than enough to seat two adults comfortably.The two rearmost seats are equipped with Isofix fittings, so that child seats and booster cushions can be attached safely and securely.
The boot capacity ranges from 2,617dm3 in two-seat configuration, to 827dm3 as a five-seater and 207dm3 when all seven seats are installed. Lodgy also features 30 litres of storage space in the cabin, in the form of various pockets and cubbies. Of particular note are the new, three-litre area on top of the dashboard and, in the back, a drinks holder and large storage pocket.This will provide a spacious and safe option to the families


Dacia Lodgy features a brand-new multimedia system: MEDIA NAV. Competitively priced in the brand’s tradition, at an unbeatable €430, MEDIA NAV incorporates a radio, auxiliary sockets (for MP3 players, etc), Bluetooth connectivity and satellite navigation via a seven-inch touch-sensitive display. The main menu permits simple access to six essential functions: radio, media, telephone, route map, satellite navigation and settings.
The intuitive navigation system has both 2D and 3D (Birdview) graphics. A dedicated website enables drivers to access information updates and upload them via the USB port.

A second multimedia option is also available: Dacia-Plug&Radio. This system features a new radio with large screen, an MP3-compatible CD player, Bluetooth technology, dash-mounted USB and jack sockets and steering wheel-mounted fingertip remote controls.


There are two petrol engines: the 1.6 MPI and the new, turbocharged TCe 115 with direct fuel injection. With its 1.2-litre capacity, but the kind of performance more usually associated with a 1.6, the TCe 115 combines an impressive driving experience with excellent fuel economy and low CO2 emissions.

There are also two diesels, both based on the 1.5 dCi block. The dCi 90 and dCi 110 powerplants qualify for the Dacia eco˛ signature – a symbol of low fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

The best part about these Dacia cars including Logan and Duster is the cost effective engineering and the low price tag. These cars are built to last, from what i have read on International forums they can outlast any of those new Toyotas.

Lodgy looks like a very good Toyota Innova alternative to me if Renault decides to bring it to India(with a sensible price tag it deserves).

The Duster is supposed to be launched here, with updated interiors. Could these interiors be the one destined for India (considering the shared interior between the Logan family)?

The Lodgy looks good and seems to be a very good alternative to the Innova or even the Chevy Tavera. By the time it comes to India - there will already be a lot to chose from - the Nissan NV, MS Ertiga.

BTW, I couldnt help noticing but the rear lights are like . . { п }
