Renault Lodgy MPV's First Picture Out; Launch in 2015
Renault , the French automaker, that had already revealed its plans of bringing in the Lodgy MPV in India, has today revealed the first official picture of the car. While globally the Lodgy is sold under Renault-owned Dacia brand, in India it will re-badged as Renault Lodgy.
The vehicle will be rolled out in the early 2015. The India-bound model is expected to receive some significant changes that will help the carmaker price it competitively. Though the company hasn't yet revealed any information about its engine and other features, we expect this 7-seater MPV to share its underpinning with other Renault products.
Upon its launch the Lodgy MPV will take on the likes of Honda Mobilio and Maruti Suzuki Ertiga. Powering the Renault might be the 1.5-litre diesel engine that also powers the Duster. This engine will churn out a maximum power output of 85bhp.
"Renault holds the distinction of being the inventor of the MPV, with the Renault Espace launched in Europe three decades ago, and its expertise will be reflected in its new product offering for India: An MPV called "The Renault Lodgy".", the company said in a statement.
