The Romanian automaker Dacia brought to Geneva a new car and some additions to its existing lineup. Even if this isn’t a name widely recognized, Dacia has managed to impress many European customers with its cars, as the impressive number of cars sold, testify. Especially the Germans clients will agree to that statement.

Now, the company is unveiling its first MPV, the Dacia Lodgy, a car that was previewed by the Dacia Lodgy Glace. The latter was specifically engineered as a race car for the Andros Trophy.

The road-going version measures 4500 mm in length, and can be equipped with 5 or 7 seats. At the same time, the interior space is quite generous. According to official numbers, the third row of seats offers some 144 mm knee space and 866 mm room for your head.

As far as cargo space is concerned, the trunk will come with 2617 liters (92 cubic feet), or 827 liters (29 cubic feet) in its 5 seat configuration. With the extra 2 seats in place, that space is reduced to 207 liters (7 cubic feet).

The Lodgy will be the first car ever made by Dacia that will have optional features like BlueTooth, 2D or 3D navigation and cruise control. Propelling the car will be the responsibility of a 1.5 diesel engine available in either a 90 horsepower or 110 horsepower version. Of course, a gasoline engine will be offered. A 1.6 liter unit rated at 85 horsepower, or a 1.2 liter one (115 horspower) are available for the Lodgy.
The latter is the latest engine used by the Renault group and offers great performances as far as CO2 and fuel efficiency levels are concerned. The starting price for the Dacia Lodgy is 9500 Euros.

Besides the MPV, we have the improved version of the Sandero Stepway. The increasingly modern look will be completed by the addition of a new color, Brun Cajou, and more interior gadgets. Among the latter category we have a new MP3 player, radio satellite with wheel commands, a USB port and BlueTooth. A leather package is optional.

The Stepway 2 will get a new engine too, a 1.6 liter unit that runs on bioethanol and is rated at 105 horsepower. This engine combines power with consideration towards the environment. It also gets Dacia’s Eco2 signature. This improved version will be available for orders starting this April.

The Romanian company will also release a limited edition for the Duster model called the Duster Delsey. Taking inspiration directly from the Laureate version, this model takes on a clear sporty aspect. For example, we get aluminum wheels, the mirrors get a metallic grey finish, the exhaust will be heavily chromed, a new color will be available (Gris Olive), and the interior will have a different atmosphere.

All things considered, Dacia has every chance of continuing the commercial success it has registered these last years. Their models have a great mix of performance, looks and utility that appeal to a large population segment, plus, their prices are extremely affordable.
