Gets added chrome detailing in the grille.

Renault India have just released the first image of the Renault Lodgy MPV in its India-specification. Confirming a launch in 2015 (early 2015 as told to Indian Autos Blog by sources), the French car maker has mildly redesigned the front fascia of the car.

The Lodgy launches in India early next year.

While the grille is identical in design to the Lodgy sold abroad, the Indian version gets chrome detailing throughout. Also the front bumper’s underlip gets black plastic cladding, while the international version is finished in the body color, or an optional silver skid guard is provided.

Save for these changes, and a new alloy wheel design, the Lodgy for India looks identical to the international version on the outside. Some market specific changes could be made on the inside, as the Lodgy will share a bulk of its components with the Duster which is well localized in India.

Competitors: Mahindra Xylo, Chevrolet Enjoy, Maruti Ertiga, Honda Mobilio
Expected Price: INR 7-10 lakhs, ex-showroom Delhi
Launch date: Early 2015
