Another Renault-badged Dacia, the Lodgy MPV, has been launched in India today. Priced from INR 8.19 lac, the MPV competes against the more affordable Maruti Ertiga and Honda Mobilio as well as the expensive Toyota Innova.
The boxy design of the Lodgy makes it seem massive in size, in fact it is. At 4498 mm, its slightly shorter than the Innova and is much bigger than the Mobilio or the Ertiga.
A set of nice large swept back headlights and the twin slatted chrome grille, enables this new MPV to stand out against the other segment opponents. Additionally, a nice chin spoiler up front with the entire lower section finished in black, gives the front a sporty character. Moving to the rear, here those radical tail lights which are designed to reflect an arrow in motion comes as the major highlight, quite offbeat though.
On the inside, the Lodgy feels every bit as spacious as it looks. With a wheelbase of 2810 mm which is even longer than even the Innova, the Lodgy boasts the best-in-class space. The two tone dashboard is a quite simple and clean. And some parts like the air-conditioning controls and vents, gear lever, dials, stalks, steering wheel, window switches, and most of the buttons are taken straight out of the Duster AWD.
Like the Duster, Lodgy too get same 1.5-litre K9K diesel engine, available in the 84bhp and the 108.5bhp versions. However, there isn't a petrol engine in the offing.
