A new production model from a French owned Romanian brand.
The 2013 Dacia Lodgy MPV has made its official debut at the Geneva Motor Show. The Lodgy is a people-mover for those on a budget with seating for either five or seven people. The Lodgy is available with a selection of two gasoline and two diesels engines. The gasoline engines come in the form of either a 104hp 1.6-liter engine or a 113hp 1.2-liter turbocharged unit. The diesel offered is a 1.5-liter engine with either 89hp or 108hp.
The Romanian company operating under Renault named their Lodgy after the word 'lodge.' Really. Apparently they believe their new model connotates feelings of a being in a big, comfy place. With 30-liters of storage space in the cabin along with class-leading space for the rear-most passengers, they aren't too far from the truth. A new multimedia system has been installed along with satnav and Bluetooth technology. The 2013 Dacia Lodgy starts pricing in Europe at €9,900.
