Renault Lodgy

Editorial Review of Renault Lodgy

Exclusive - uploaded on 6th September 2012

As usual, Gaadi.com brings you another exclusive on Renault's next offering for the Indian market - the Lodgy MPV from Dacia. It goes without saying that it’s raining MPV’s in the Indian market and Lodgy is another future launch in the Indian market. The MPV segment in India will see new entrants like the Maruti Ertiga and a car like the Lodgy will be a worthy competitor to it. The Lodgy is a practical and spacious MPV. The design of the car is safe but very clean. With the grille moulded around the Dacia logo and sharp lines that highlight the sculptured wheel arches, Lodgy provides a preview of Dacia's new corporate look. In India, like the Duster, the Lodgy will wear a Renault badge.

As said earlier the interior of the Lodgy is roomy and practical. The Lodgy is a seven seater and families will certainly like the spacious seats! The third row features very good space in terms of knee and head room (144 and 866mm respectively), which is more than enough to seat two adults comfortably. In seven-seat configuration, the third-row bench seat can be removed completely or else folded up against the front seat backs which is handy Just like the Renault Duster, the interior has a practical and sturdy look.

The 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.

The Lodgy will be available with a chocie of petrol and diesel engines when it will be launched in India. There are two petrol engines: the 1.6 MPI and the new, turbocharged TCe 115 with direct fuel injection. There are also two diesels, both based on the 1.5 dCi. The Lodgy has potential in the Indian market, although a lot depends on the price.
