The response to the Lodgy MPV, which Renault launched earlier this year in India, hasn’t been all too enthusiastic to put it politely. Although the car was launched in eight-seater and seven-seater variants, the seven-seater version was only available in the top end trims.
So now to add a little more spice to the existing Lodgy lineup and attract customer attention to the car, Renault is planning to launch a seven-seater base version with an 85PS engine fitted to it. Right now the seven-seater version is only available in the top end trims with 1.5-liter DCi engine capable of producing 110PS peak output.
Presently, the difference between the seven and the eight-seater in the RxZ trim is about Rs.30,000. This will remain same in the base RxE trim as well once the seven-seater is introduced in that trim level.
