Renault India has confirmed the Lodgy as its MPV contender.

In fact, Renault India has announced the launch of the Lodgy MPV for early-2015 (with sources claiming a launch by April 2015), which will come in two variants - Lodgy and Lodgy Stepway. The Stepway is a rugged take on the MPV with design features like roof rails, skid guards and body cladding being added to the MPV.

The Lodgy will no doubt be powered by the 1.5-liter four-cylinder diesel engine, though the company has not shared specifications or engine details just as yet. Renault is also yet to confirm if it will launch a petrol variant of the Lodgy.

The Grand Scenic measures 4,559 mm in length and is sold with 5 or 7 seats.

The Lodgy is expected to share plenty of components with the Renault Duster which is well localized in the Indian market. Prices are expected to be competitive as a result.

Expected Price for Lodgy: INR 7-10 lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi)
Launch date for Lodgy: Around April 2015
