Renault answer to Ertiga & Quanto

Recommended Posts

Renault is bringing the Lodgy to India,based on the Logan platform is a seven-seat MPV the front-end, grille, headlamps and tail lamps will be worked upon to make it look like a Renault branded vehicle. Engine options for the Lodgy will be the 1.5-litre dCi and will most likely be offered in the 90 bhp though a 110 bhp version could also be offered The Lodgy also comes with a 1.6-litre petrol engine that produces 84 bhp. Both engines come with 5-speed manual transmissions, with the 110 bhp diesel available with a 6-speed manual, like the Duster.

At 4.5 metres in length, the Lodgy is longer than the Ertiga at 4.26 metres and just a bit shorter than the 4.52 metre long Mahindra Xylo. Designed to seat seven with three front facing rows, the Lodgy has two-tone interiors and a whole bunch of bits that are borrowed from Duster. Space should be good and the overall quality of materials should be more in line with that of the Duster – well-built and decently finished.

Next one decade India is going to witness the launch of many SUVs and MUVs. This may effect the growth of C & D segment sedans.The advantage of Renault is its zero maintenance cost for many years together. Recently i spoke to one Meru cab driver his car has crossed 3,10,000 kms in 4 years time and he has not faced any engine trouble so far and he is confident to drive the car another 2 years.I strongly believe this is the major advantage of Renault cars especially Duster which is selling more than 3000 cars since its launch.
