I own a 110PS, Diesel variant Lodgy over a year now in Chennai and I have driven it in the city, highways and hills as well. The drive is absolutely impressive and the way it handles the Indian roads is commendable.Mileage is pretty good, it averages out well.
However, i cannot deny the fact that the ground clearance of the car is relatively low and one has to be careful on the awkwardly sized speed breakers.
It can carry 7 adults at ease and it has oodles of space for luggage as well. The 3rd row seat is comfortable for adults even on long journey. This seat is fold-able and detachable to add-on luggage space.
The exterior shape isn't attractive but nothing to complain. In-fact, if you are ready to spend a few thousands like i did, you can add style and detail to the car's exterior with chrome bits. Interiors of the car is decent except for the missing armrest in the front. Anyway, i have always received complements about the car from everyone who drove or was driven in may car.
A noteworthy aspect of the car is its NVH levels, even at the cruising speeds over 100 kmph the cabin is quite. The originally fitted audio system delivers good & quality audio.
I recommend the potential buyers of the car to get a service package as well, the renault service centers, atleast the one in chennai, are charging tad high.
The MPV's are not only for the cities but for long drives too and if it is the same for you then pay a little more to get the 110PS version rather than the 85PS. The smaller 85PS isn't bad though.
If Ertiga is "affordable" for you and Innova is "luxury" for you, then Lodgy is surely an "affordable luxury" and i really mean it.
