Renault Lodgy specs and features revealed before launch

Renault Lodgy MPV is gearing up for launch in very few weeks, ahead of which its specs and features are revealed. The MPV is essentially based on Duster crossover, but it will have some bells and whistles of its own.

The French automaker has slightly tweaked the looks of Indian Lodgy, compared to its European version, chiefly the chrome grille on front fascia and other chrome trims on exterior.

Regular Renault Lodgy features normal front and rear bumpers without any special treatment or drama, and no flashy trims on the sides or anywhere on the exterior of the MPV. But the interiors are offered with dual tone (beige and brown) colour scheme and chrome surrounds (on centre console, air con vents and instrument cluster assembly), and silver trims too, to give the cabin a classy aura. Seat upholstery is a two-tone perforated leather material.

List of features in Renault Lodgy MPV include infotainment system with touchscreen and navigation, steering mounted controls reverse / parking camera and sensors, tray tables with cupholders for passengers on second row, roof mounted AC vents for second and third row occupants, and the like.

Renault Lodgy specs include same 1.5 litre 4-cylinder dCi diesel engine doing duty in Renault Duster. The motor is available in two states of tune, an 85 PS variant and a 110 PS model. Former is matched to 5-speed manual transmission and latter is linked to a 6-speed gearbox. There will be no petrol version of Renault Lodgy and no automatic too.
