Will be offered in two power states like the Duster.
Dealers of Renault India have started accepting bookings for the Renault Lodgy, which is expected to launch in the month of April. The booking amount is INR 50,000.
The Lodgy will be powered by the tried-and-tested 1.5-liter four-cylinder K9K diesel engine, found on other Renault-Nissan products like the Micra, Sunny, Terrano, Duster, Pulse, Scala and Fluence. Like the Duster, this engine will be offered in two states of tune – 85 PS and 110 PS. The 85 PS variant produces 200 Nm of torque, and comes paired to a 5-speed transmission, while the 110 PS churns 245 Nm of torque and is mated to a 6-speed gearbox.
An automatic transmission is not on offer on the Lodgy. The 85 PS variant claims 21.04 km/l while the more powerful 110 PS returns 19.98 km/l in the ARAI tests.
The Lodgy will be offered in two seating configurations – 8 and 7 seats – the latter featuring a Captains Chair arrangement for the second row. The Mobilio rival measures 4,498 mm in length, 1,751 mm in width, 1,697 mm in height and 2,810 mm in wheelbase.
With all seats in place, the Lodgy offers a 275 liter boot, which spans to 1,861 liters when the last two rows are folded. Dual front airbags, ABS, EBD, reverse parking sensors and a touchscreen Media NAV system are some of the features that will be seen on the top-end variant of the Lodgy.
