Jogger revealed: New Dacia between SUV and station wagon

Today, the Romanian brand unveiled its brand new model called the Jogger. It is a family car of the C-segment, which is a mix of SUV and station wagon. It is also the longest Dacia, and can accommodate seven passengers. It has been announced that it will cost less than 15,000 euros.

After the electric electric model Spring, then the popular hatchback Sandero, the Logan sedan and the Duster SUV, Dacia has now decided to offer a seven-seater to the market. Jogger is practically the successor of the MPV model Lodgy, and is created on Renault's CMF-B platform (Renault Clio, Captur, Nissan Juke…)
According to the company, the Jogger has the length of a caravan, the spaciousness of an MPV and the robust look of an SUV.

Upon appearance, it will be offered with a TCe 110 petrol engine (3 cylinders, 1.0 l, 190 Nm) paired with a 6-speed manual transmission, as well as an ECO-G 100 engine that has factory-installed auto-gas.

And, in two years, the first hybrid of the Romanian brand will arrive, which they say will be the cheapest seven-seater with a hybrid drive on the market. It will use a 1.6-liter gasoline engine in combination with two electric motors.

The Jogger is 4.5 meters long and is currently the longest Dacia on offer, and has as much as 2.9 meters of wheelbase, which clearly shows how much space there is in the cabin.

The front received LED lights in Y shape known from other new models from Romania, while from the side it is clear that it is a robust model, so it has protective plastics on the edges around the wheels, while the distance from the ground is as much as 200 mm.

At the rear are upright lights, which visually add to the width of the vehicle. The luggage space can vary depending on the configuration, so when 5 seats are used, the capacity is 708 liters, and with 7 it is 160 liters. The largest trunk volume is 1,819 liters.

The cabin is modern and practical, already known from other new Dacia models, so there are soft materials on the dashboard and doors, at the top of the console is a multimedia system, and below are the air conditioning controls. The cabin has a total volume of 24 liters in storage for small items.

The jogger also comes with an automatic braking system, offers blind spot warning, parking assistant, uphill assistance, etc.
