Like the Duster, the Lodgy too will be offered in two power states.

The Lodgy is powered by the same 1.5-liter four-cylinder diesel engine as the Duster, and will be offered in two states of tunes – 85 PS and 110 PS. The 85 PS model makes 200 Nm of torque and is paired to a 5-speed manual transmission whereas the 110 PS version churns out 245 Nm of torque and is mated to a 6-speed manual transmission.

The 85 PS model is good for 21.04 km/l while the more powerful 110 PS returns 19.98 km/l. At the time of launch, both these models will be available in a top-end trim only, certain reports have stated.

    Bought a Duster in March 2015. AC stops working in less than a week. Cant even celebrate after spending more than 10L. Cant show to friends in April heat. Be cautious.
