Always still pretty ugly

Cologne, 24 January 2017

Dacia Lodgy and the Dacia Dokker like do not belong to the most emotional models on the market, but they have to be lifted anyway. Now it has come: the Sandero and Logan MCV the Dokker and the Lodgy are now. Duster received a refresher last 2013, and its appearance is now used as a blueprint for the other Dacias.

Grill and Sandero Duster

The Dokker of Dacia is known as high roof wagon, the Lodgy as transportation. But technically they are very similar. The main difference is that the Lodgy is 13 centimetres longer, and is offered as a seven-seater. Both cars get now by the Duster Grill with four rectangular elements known. The normal versions, these elements are black, held when the step way variants in a chrome finish. The tailgate also receives a crossbar from chrome the Lodgy.

Four spokes are better than three

Inside, the three-spoke steering wheel is replaced by one with four spokes. Otherwise, the design of the dashboard in detail is changed. The center console is now surrounded by a chrome line. Also now a rear-view camera (the gabs already, but only as an accessory) and details were supplied to the front seat backs offered at least in the French version, to the German is still not published. The step way versions are likely to receive also the 16-inch steel wheels of the Sandero step way known in titanium finish. In France, there are optionally new 16-inch bright-machined aluminum. On a high roof van probably look like such sporty wheels? It should be interesting.
