Dacia Jogger breaks cover with up to seven seats, 110 PS
Dacia has been doing exceptionally well in Europe lately, with the latest Sandero outselling even the formidable VW Golf in July. The marque plans to expand its lineup on all fronts, and begins with introducing the wagon-shaped Jogger at the Munich expo.
The car will be offered in five- and seven-seat versions, both aiming to hit the sweet spot between price and quality in Europe. This drive towards affordability affects design, of course: from the nose to the a-pillars, the Jogger looks indistinguishable from the Sandero Stepway. Its cabin is also generic Dacia fare, for the most part.
The entry-level specification forgoes the infotainment touchscreen in favor of a smartphone holder. Put your phone in, and you will get navigation. There are also rain and light sensors, a speed limiter, and a multi-function steering wheel.
Just like the new Sandero, Sandero Stepway and Logan, the Jogger will be offered exclusively with gasoline and bi-fuel engines, maxing out at a 1.0-liter three-cylinder mill rated at 110 PS (108 hp / 81 kW). Opting for a versatile petrol/CNG powertrain named Eco-G will cap performance at 100 PS (99 hp / 74 kW). Only manual is available for transmission so far.
