Renault Lodgy Stepway MPV launched at INR 11.99 lakh
The Innova has been the reigning king in the MPV segment ever since it was launched in May 2005. The Ertiga came and did a bit of damage but that wasn`t enough to dethrone the King. Move the clock to 2015 and what we have here is the very promising Renault Lodgy. It has a powerful diesel engine, lots of space and is decent looking considering it`s an MPV (people mover). If the looks of the Lodgy have stopped you from buying this car, you need to give it a second thought as Renault has addressed this issue to a certain extent. The answer is the Lodgy Stepway.
The Stepway is nothing but a more rugged looking version of the Lodgy. To give it a more aggressive look Renault has adorned it with a new grille which it calls “Jewel Studded”. Other changes include scuff plates at the front, new roof rails and skid plates finished in chrome at the front and back. Apart from this, the Lodgy Stepway gets black cladding on the wheel arches and a set of new alloy wheels. The front bumper too has been redesigned to give it a more prominent look.
The Stepway variant is equipped with features like ABS, EBD, driver and passenger airbags, rear view camera, AC vents for second and third row passengers, navigation system, cruise control, rear parking sensor and electrically adjustable rear view mirrors.
The Lodgy Stepway is available in two models namely – Lodgy RxZ 110PS eight seater and Lodgy RxZ 110PS seven seater. Prices for the vehicle start at INR 11.99 lakh and INR 12.29 lakh respectively (ex-showroom, New Delhi).
