Much space for the money and high wear resistance. It has always been the mantra of the great syvpersoners Dacia Lodgy. Conversely, the 1.6-liter gasoline engine of 82 hp been foot-dragging, while the security is far behind today's standard.
the motor unit was addressed in the last year, where the Lodgy was the Renault group's more modern, the 1.4-litre 100 bhp TCe turbobenzinmotor, while the original discountagtige instrumentation a few years previously, got an upgrade with a facelift.

a new blow to the spacious familiecontainer with three row of seats. It happens with the so-called Streetway-version, which has air conditioning, radio with bluetooth and ratbetjening as well as heating in the front seats. But then nor does much else.
If you must have cruise control, height adjustable steering wheel and driver's seat and the option for display with navigation, parking sensors or rear view camera etc., you must dkk 25,000. higher up to the Stepway version, which, however, are only available with a diesel engine of 95 hp.

as the automatic emergency brake you need to look far. In fact, the built-in security so poor that the car is already at the debut back in 2012 was mediocre, 3 stars at the Euro NCAP test, and FDM advised against buying the car.
Yet Dacia Lodgy sold steadily through the years at home, where there is allocated the 3000 cars. In the last year, it was, however, only to a few hundred pieces. Dacia has, in turn, buyers who are quite satisfied with their cars that are both reliable and cheap to keep running.

there is no doubt that the new engine makes the MPV a good, experienced more bright and letkørt than previously, while fuel consumption at 14.7 km/l is not unreasonable for such a large car.
On the practical front, there is praise for a third row of seats, where, in contrast to its competitors, almost can be large, limbed teenagers above lilleputter back here.
And it is easy to get in and out. However, both the driving position, lack of adjustability and the anything sailing down on the road still provides memories of a van from the last decade.

the safety of you and your family. Any used syvpersoners car, there are less than ten years old will be more secure for you and your family. But if you only run in the surrounding area, a big car-all else equal-be more secure than a small mikrobil.
Nearest new syvpersoners car on the market is the aging of the Citroën C4 Grand Picasso, which today is called the Grand C4 Space Tourer, has its roots from the 2013 and costs from 260,000 dkk. It has much more equipment, but costs also nicely much more.
the main advantages of The Dacia Lodgy is the price, the spaciousness, the relatively low loss of value and the same operating costs. The downside is that you're buying a MINIVAN with poor security, running bedaget.
It may be an option, if you mostly roll around in the immediate area. But if you run outside of the city limits, commute or are considering road trip, so look on the used, less rustic and more secure alternatives.

A new Dacia is an alternative to a used. This was the mantra from the importer, since the range of rustic models from Renault subsidiary was launched almost a dozen years ago.
While the competitors, which today are available as used, have become much more modern, is only moved in small steps by Dacia. Nevertheless, it is a car model, which can not be divided up in clearly black and white, sound assessment from Jan, who is an analyst at Bilbasen.
- Used MPV's are much sought after, so there is not a large offer. This is why the Dacia Lodgy in an interesting position. If you can live with, that it is a rustic model, you will find not many alternatives on the second hand market, says Jan Long.
- Lodgy is a little fun place. It is a very honest car. It is stripped down but provides plenty of space. It is not insanely comfortable, but snusfornuftig and inexpensive to get on the workshop. It is also sought-after on the second hand market. A five year old Lodgy fail not something to be used, says Jan Long.

override the one big lack.
Safety is the big achilles heel. It's a bit like the old Kia Carnival or the american MPV's, which fell together in the middle. It is not a car that I would drive to Italy. I would keep me in the area, says Jan Long.
between a new Dacia Lodgy to the 170.000 kr. and a used, would Jan Long choosing the used and clearly identify the Renault Grand Scenic.
- It is a modern car with much security, the prices are reasonable, and operating costs is notoriously low on the Renault, they are f.ex. higher on the Citroën and Ford, says Jan Lang, who has a VW Caddy in second and Citroën C4 Grand Picasso as number three, when we speak of a so-called ’short-range MPVS.
of the used MPV with a petrol engine is however small, while there are several dieseler. It can talk to look at a new Lodgy and be an opening for the brand.
It can be tempting to look towards the used dieselmodeller. It must, as a minimum, be a Euro6. But if your driving is mostly short trips, it is hard for the engine, and an aging dieselbil can be an expensive acquaintance.

Here are some suggestions on syvpersoners MPV's in the price bracket around 170,000 dkk. found on Bilbasen:
Renault Grand Scenic III 1,6 16V Expression from 2013/2014 with 73.000 km on the counter to 148.000 kr. Go better after 1.2 TCe or 1,4 TCe turbobenzinerne, which, however, is more expensive. We thus found a Renault Grand Scenic III-1,2 TCe 115 Bose from 2013 with approximately 113,000 km to 165.000 crowns.
Here was also a C4 Grand Picasso with 1,2 Seduction from 2016, with the 130 hp petrol engine with 93.000 km to 169.900 kr.
On the VW Caddy-the front is the committee with seven seats is limited. We saw a 1.2 Trendline with 84 hp from 2014 with 127,000 km to 130,000 kr. Go for the models with lower km-figures.
An alternative could be the Ford Grand C-MAX, where a 1.0 was replaced 125 Trend from 2016 onwards, that had been running 96.000 km, was to 160.000 kr. But they are typically more expensive. The possibilities are many and range from Opel Zafira for Peugeot 5008.
