Renault Lodgy Launch (3)

Here’s another family mover that will try to shake things up in the MPV segment and vie for that throne occupied by the Toyota Innova for a long time. Also competing against the Honda Mobilio, Maruti Ertiga and Mahindra Xylo, the Renault Lodgy will be offered in 7 & 8 seater configurations. It has been launched in India today and has been priced rather attractively. While the 85 PS model has 4 variants to pick from, the more powerful, 110 PS model has three choices to offer.
