Renault has showcased the Lodgy Stepway at the Renault Star Guild Awards. The Lodgy MPV which is launching soon is seen here in the Stepway avatar. In essence the Lodgy Stepway is the rugged looking version of the MPV. It can be clearly seems that from the pic the Lodgy is seen having the rugged Stepway treatment.
The changes over the standard Lodgy include front and rear protection bars, cladding, front fog lights with satin chrome ornaments, dark metal design finish for the roof rails, alloys and external rear view mirrors. The interiors also get some rugged styling touches to mimic the exterior. The Lodgy Stepway then would be slightly more expensive when launched along with the standard MPV and mechanically there will be no change over the standard version.
The Lodgy will be priced below the Toyota Innova and will be slotted above the Ertiga and Mobilio with space as its main USP. It is quite big and has lots of space plus coupled with the diesel engine from the Duster it seems the Lodgy is a product that has lots of potential. At the Renault Star Guild Awards it was also announced that Hrithik Roshan will be the first Lodgy customer.
