The Dacia Lodgy is a compact multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) developed by the Romanian manufacturer Dacia, officially launched at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.[1]

Overview[edit]

Lodgy Stepway

Based on a new platform,[2] the Lodgy is front-wheel drive and powered by a choice of 4-cylinder engines: a 1.5 L diesel (in two variants) and two petrol engines, a 1.6 L aspirated and a 1.2 L turbocharged Energy TCe 115.[3]

Lodgy is the first Dacia model to offer a speed limiter, on the Laureate level, and a navigation system with a seven inch touchscreen display, as an option. Bluetooth and USB connectivity, previously introduced on the Dacia Duster, are also available.[4]

The car was available only in LHD from launch, and with a choice of five and seven seater models. It is manufactured at an all new Renault factory in Tangier, Morocco.[5]

The Lodgy received three stars in Euro NCAP's crash test rating, considered to be the lowest result for a car in 2012.[6] In the test, the rear passenger floor panel and tunnel were completely separated, and the transmission tunnel was deformed between the front seats.[7]

Lodgy in India[edit]

Renault India launched its MPV Lodgy on 9 April 2015, at a base price Rs 8.19 lac. The Lodgy is offered in seven variants, namely: Lodgy std 85PS, Lodgy RxE 85PS, Lodgy RxL 85PS, Lodgy RxZ 85PS, Lodgy RxL 110PS, Lodgy RxZ 110PS 8 seater and Lodgy RxZ 110PS 7 seater. Its major exterior features includes twin slated grill, swept back headlamps, fog lamps, chrome highlights, contemporary taillight cluster.

While major interior highlights are spacious cabin, large windows, 7 and 8 seater option, newly designed dashboard, touch screen infotainment system, comfortable seats and multi function steering wheel with cruise control toggles. [8]

Lodgy Glace[edit]

Lodgy Glace

In November 2011, Dacia announced that it would take part in the Andros Trophy, revealing the new Lodgy for the first time, in an ice racing version called Lodgy Glace. Unlike the production version, the Lodgy Glace featured a rear mid-engine, four-wheel-drive layout and was powered by a 3.0 litre V6 engine, which produced 355 bhp (265 kW; 360 PS) and 265 lb·ft (359 N·m) of torque. Two models were raced by father and son Alain Prost and Nicolas Prost, and the third by Evens Stievenart.[9]

The team eventually won the competition, with Alain Prost as the first placed driver, gaining four victories and six other podium finishes. The seven rounds took place in Val Thorens, Andorra, Alpe d'Huez, Isola 2000, Lans-en-Vercors, Saint-Dié-des-Vosges and Super Besse.[10] It was the first MPV model to win the competition,[11] and the second model from Dacia to compete in the Andros Trophy, after the Duster took part in the 2010 and 2011 seasons.[12]
