Renault Lodgy MPV launched in India at Rs 8.19 lakh

09 Apr 2015 / 4

Renault has launched the new Lodgy MPV in India at a price range of Rs 8.19 lakh-11.79 lakh, ex-Delhi. The Renault Lodgy is a 7/8 seater which will take on the likes of the Toyota Innova, Mahindra Xylo and to some extent, even the Maruti Ertiga and Honda Mobilio. It is available in seven variants, four with the 85PS engine and the rest powered by a 110PS tuned engine.

While the base variants don’t get the chrome bling that you see on the Renault Lodgy pictured here, what each and every trim does get as standard is power steering, air conditioning as well as safety features like ABS and EBD. The top-end variants get dual airbags as well as a touchscreen infotainment system with GPS navigation on the dashboard, which doubles up as the display for the rear view camera. The reverse camera is complemented by parking sensors.  All three rows have ample seating space and the interior quality too is a little better than the Duster’s. Renault offers an eight way height-adjustable driver’s seat as well as cruise control on the Lodgy.

There is no dearth of storage spaces with the Renault Lodgy even offering a foldable tray table behind the front seats. The best part is that the second and third row can be completely folded to allow 1,861 litres of luggage capacity from the standard 207 litres. Renault claims that while the Lodgy is sold in other markets, for the India-specific trim, they had to make more than 60 changes. The roof rails for instance can carry loads weighing upto 80kg.

 

The Renault Lodgy uses the tried and tested 1.5l dCi engine which is available in two states of tune – 85PS and 110PS, mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox. Renault claims a fuel efficiency of 21.04kmpl and 19.98kmpl respectively from these engines for the Lodgy. We have driven the 110PS Lodgy MPV and found it to be a capable load hauler. Renault is backing the Lodgy with a warranty valid for five years or one lakh kilometres, depending on whatever is comes first in the life of the car.
