The Renault Group is expanding its seven-seater line-up with the new Dacia Jogger. The latest crossover adopts the underpinnings of the Sandero’s CMF-LS platform for consumers looking for a bit more space.
The Dacia Jogger claims to offer the length of a stationwagon, spaciousness of an MPV and the looks of an SUV. The new product measures 4 547 mm long, 1 784 mm wide and 1 632 mm tall with a wheelbase of 2 897 mm.
At launch, the Dacia Jogger will be fitted with the Renault Group’s turbocharged 1,0-litre three-cylinder engine TCe 110 which will deliver power to the fronts via a six-speed manual gearbox. An LPG variant will also be available in select markets. No word regarding an automatic transmission has been mentioned. A hybrid powertrain has been scheduled for a 2023 introduction.
The Dacia Jogger will hit 30 international markets by next February. It is not yet clear whether Renault will rebadge this model for our local market but if it decides to do so, this crossover would slot right above the current Triber.
“Once again, Dacia is changing the rules as it reinvents the versatile, affordable family car. As either a five- or seven-seater, Jogger perfectly embodies Dacia’s positioning and spirit. With versatility thanks to its record levels of space and modularity and an attractive, rugged design, Jogger is made for adventure. Jogger underscores Dacia’s commitment to making mobility accessible to all and sustainable, as highlighted by its upcoming hybrid model. Whether you’re with your family, running an errand, or enjoying some leisure time, Jogger is your ideal companion,” says Denis Le Vot, Dacia CEO.
