By planning to bring the Lodgy to our country, Renault India is basically readying itself to launch an assault against the very high selling Maruti Suzuki Ertiga.

Dacia Lodgy MPV is underpinned by a modified version of the Renault Duster platform. This is the same platform which also underpins the very popular Logan. All this means that the Lodgy is a very reliable, robust and niggle-free car.

Powering the Dacia Lodgy MPV in India would be the very 1.5 Litre K9K turbo diesel engine in its lower state of tune and mated to a 5 speed manual ‘box. This motor would offer 90Hp-200 Nm of peak power-torque output.

The Renault Lodgy will come to us in its 7 seater format and will be high on space and comfort. Lodgy will be equipped with safety features like the ABS, EBD and Front airbags.

The Lodgy MPV will be priced lower to the Toyota Innova and will battle against the very competitively priced Maruti Ertiga and recently launched Mahindra Quanto.
