Renault Lodgy


In order to grab a pie of the multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) segment of the country, which is by far been dominated by Toyota Innova, Renault will soon roll out the Lodgy.


The Lodgy was launched in 2012 as a low-cost MPV to meet market requirements for families in value-conscious markets, and could well make a perfect fit for the Indian market. Built on a new platform developed by Renault-owned Dacia, called the M0 platform, Lodgy’s suspension is simple, with McPherson struts in the front and a sturdy H-beam rear axle. The Lodgy is front-wheel drive only, and it is unlikely that a 4-wheel drive version will ever be made.


Now, let’s try to find out how the new car from Renault’s stable will fancy in terms of tech specs and features over segment leader Innova. Here, we will compare the diesel version of both the models.


Dimension & Space

Well, a MPV or MUV is all about space and Innova definitely has an edge over Lodgy in terms of overall length, width and height. However, the Lodgy has a slightly longer wheelbase.


Engine & performance

Lodgy has a smaller engine with a capacity of 1461cc, which is 2494cc for Innova. However, Lodgy curns out more power and torque in compared to Innova. Although a difference of just 8PS might not be that significant plus for Lodgy but the extra 48 Nm of torque is definitely a plus over Innova. More of, Lodgy has that extra gear to cruse on. While Innova is mated with a 5 speed manual gearbox, Lodgy is equipped with the sixth gear.


Safety, features &Add-ons

Both the Lodgy and Innova are well equipped with safety, comfort and other luxury features like entertainment system (which includes USB, aux-in and Bluetooth connectivity, touchscreen), AC vents for all the three rows. In terms of safety features both cars have rear-view camera, rear parking sensor, ABS, dual airbags. However, Innova has the edge of having airbags even in the base variant.
