Dacia Lodgy. Taxi of Barcelona (Catalonia, Spain)

Based on a new platform, the Lodgy is front-wheel drive and powered by a choice of four cylinder engines: a 1.5 L diesel (in two variants) and two petrol engines, a 1.6 L aspirated and a 1.2 L turbocharged Energy TCe 115. Lodgy is the first Dacia model to offer a speed limiter, on the Laureate level, and a navigation system with a seven-inch touchscreen display, as an option.

Bluetooth and USB connectivity, previously introduced on the Dacia Duster, are also available. The car was available only in LHD from launch, and with a choice of five and seven seater models. It is manufactured at an all new Renault factory in Tangier, Morocco. The Lodgy received three stars in Euro NCAP’s crash test rating, considered to be the lowest result for a car in 2012. In the test, the rear passenger floor panel and tunnel were completely separated, and the transmission tunnel was deformed between the front seats.
