Renault is wasting no time in grabbing headlines for its upcoming MPV Lodgy.
Lodgy MPV, Renault's first offering in this segment is expected to make its India debut in March this year, but the model has already found its place on the company India website, confirming its imminent launch in the country.
Lodgy, the French maker's answer to Honda Mobilio has been testing on Indian roads for quite a while now. Renault is expected to launch both Lodgy and its top-end version Stepway in India together.
The model that is coming to India is expected to flaunt a similar design and style like that of its European counterpart. The Stepway variant of Lodgy is expected to pack in features like skid-plates at the front and rear end, side body cladding , rear parking sensors and chrome grille with the 'Logdy' badging. As for the features, Lodgy is expected to get touchscreen infotainment system, three-spoke steering wheel, dual-tone dashboard and centre armrest for rear passengers.
Under the hood, from what we have heard so far, Renault Lodgy MPV is likely to get power from 1.5-litre K9K diesel engine in two states of tune -- 85PS and 110PS.
Apparently, a variant with 1.6-litre petrol engine of the Duster is also making its way to the Indian market.
The MPV, which is getting ready to be manufactured at Renault-Nissan plant in Oragadam, Chennai, is likely to get a price tag in the range of ₹8- ₹11 lakh in India.
