The Lodgy marks Renault’s maiden attempt in the flourishing MUV (multi utility vehicle) segment in India. Available only with diesel engine options, the Lodgy comes in a choice of two seating options – 7-seater and 8-seater. The Lodgy is based around the same platform as of the Renault Duster.
Prior to its launch in India, the Lodgy was already on sale in certain European markets. Albeit, in those markets it is sold under ‘Dacia’ brand (Renault’s budget arm). Since it has been on sale for long in global markets, the Lodgy is a well proven product- which kind of shows. Apart from carrying a Renault badge, the Lodgy sold in India has also been tweaked and enhanced for our market. It gets more premium styling upgrades such as a redesigned front chrome grille, swept back headlamps, stylish rear tail-lights, leather upholstery and more. Although, the overall profile is a bit too boxy in compromise for a roomy cabin which may not be to many people’s liking, yet it manages to look contemporary.
The Lodgy is available in two different states of tune of the Renault’s widely used 1.5-litre K9K diesel engine. While the more powerful engine tune focuses on driveability and performance, the lower powered version is tuned for efficiency. Besides that, the higher powered version comes with a 6-speed manual gearbox, whereas the lower tune has to make do with a 5-speed manual gearbox.
The biggest USP of the Lodgy are its dimensions- which by far are the best in the segment. It has the longest wheelbase in comparison to its current rivals, which translates into plenty of space for the occupants inside the cabin. The 7-seater version features two captain seats in the middle-row, whereas the 8-seater has a flat middle-bench. There’s ample of headroom for rear passengers; the elbow room is also one of the best in the segment and the seats offer excellent cushioning and support. There are also top-mounted a/c vents for rear passengers.
Compared to the spacious second-row seats, the third row offers limited space and is best suited for children or two adults at max. That said, it is not cramped or discomforting for short trips. The luggage capacity (with the third row up) is impressive with over 200 litres of storage area.
On the inside, the Lodgy MPV features most of the equipment and features from the Duster SUV. The interiors look upmarket and sport a dual-tone dashboard, a three-pod instrument console, steering mounted controls for infotainment, cruise-control, a MediaNav infotainment system with navigation and circular air-con vents. The quality of the materials used on the inside is also satisfactory, if not stellar.
Safety net includes ABS, brake-assist and two front airbags for driver and passenger on the Renault Lodgy.
The Renault Lodgy comes with a premium cabin featuring dual tone interiors with chrome inserts, leather upholstery, a/c vents and power sockets for all three rows and a well loaded equipment featuring satellite navigation, rear view camera with rear parking sensors and more.
Well equipped cabin and lots of space and premium finish
Seating for thrid row middle passenger cramped

With the third row removed, the Lodgy has 759-litres of boot space and with the second-row seats folded there is a massive 1861-litres of luggage space.

Priced at Rs 10.40 Lakh, ex-showroom, Delhi, the MPV from the French carmaker has some really appealing additions The Renault Lodgy is one practical MPV when it comes to interior space! There is oodles of it even in the third row, even if it's occupied by adults, which some of the segment leaders are unable to provide. It is primarily due to t...
Renault has not had much success with the Lodgy MPV - even though it is a spacious, feature-rich vehicle which is decently priced; it has not been able to stand out amongst its competition. Customers were ready to invest much more in the very reliable and cheaper-to-maintain Toyota Innova while Maruti played its trump card of affordability, feature...

Pros ,nothing seems good
Cons ,irritating looks
Poor looks..This car is not comparable with Innova ,, because Innova is a good car. Compare it with Xylo which has similar bad looks.

Cons Average Looks,
Of late, Renault's innings in India has been a bit sketchy. The Lodgy is one vehicle that might take Renault to a different level in India - but will it happen If we look at the rivals, the Mobilio looks better and much premium. Likewise, interiors of the Innova top end feel better and feature wise, the Lodgy doesnt manage to beat any rival. The strong point would be the proven diesel engine that offers the best of all the worlds - its good on performance, offers decent economy and Renault seems to have done a fab job on the NVH front. The Lodgy would also be car like to drive, something missing in the Innova. Pricing is certainly terrific but has the launch come too late Is the segment already saturated This might be company's biggest fear

Pros Great Looks,Good Performance,Comfort,
Excellent MPV from Renault. Really liked my test drive, very agile and light unlike innova. Spacious and silent inside, powerful engine and looks really great in black and grey. What a nice dashboard for the higher variants, comfortable seats, enough leg and head room, good suspension and height too. I liked the feel when I was driving it on the highway and also in the traffic no lag issues or anything to worry about. Easy to park, thanks to reverse parking assist, good turning radius and remains on the road hard and strong, easy to move in traffic even when so big. One of the best MPVs out there and certainly doesnt give a taxi feel like innova.

Pros Great Looks,Good Performance,Comfort,
Wonderful experience buying the lodgy, it has so much space on offer. I was going to buy the innova but it was too costly and for what, taxi like feel I am happy that I bought lodgy, the dealership threw in some good discount and i was really happy it all came in my budget. the MPV segment needed a car like this which is pocket friendly, spacious, good looking and very fuel efficient. The 1.5 lt engine does wonders on highways and also in the city and the car averages between 17-19 which I think is more than one would expect. Very good MPV.

This car is very good. It has a good mileage and good performance. It's fairly quiet for a diesel car. The legroom in all the rows is extremely good. Everything is excellent apart from its looks at the back the front view is very good.

Pros Good Performance,Great Interiors,Comfort,
Had a chance to drive my friends lodgy which is the top variant 110 PS. Very good MPV indeed, both our families (total 7) sat in the MPV very comfortably. The best part about lodgy is the spaciousness of the cabin, apart from the media nav with 7 inch touch screen which comes in handy while taking a picnic or going on a long journey. I was very impressed with the pick up in full load with AC, there is absolute cabin silence even at 80kmhr. I loved to drive this car and the journey did not tire me. Excellent car by Renault.

Pros Great Looks,Good Performance,Fuel Efficiency,Comfort,
Renault lodgy test drive I took before two weeks and I liked it a lot. There is a lot of space in the cabin and the driver seat is quite comfortable and no rattling of the seat.The interiors are fairly good but can be better. The lodgy has very spacious feel to it and there is no way you will disregard this car in any aspect. The rear seats fit three medium build people easily and the boot space is really big for a car this size. Last row can be removed completely and a lot of boot space can be created. Safety wise everything is in place be it ABS, EBD, airbags. This is a smart buy for people looking for a large car.
