The tyres have decent grip for regular usage and you won’t have a reason to complain unless you would want to push your car across every corner you see. The suspension is extremely well tuned and hence the ride is fantastic. Even the handling characteristics are good by MPV standards. In fact, the Lodgy is one of those few MPVs which doesn’t drive like one. The brakes are again pretty decent and there shouldn’t be a reason to complain on that front as well.
The Lodgy has the ability to perform better in terms of sales in our market
On the safety front, the Lodgy Stepway comes equipped with dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, and cruise control with speed limiter. An area where Renault lacks behind is the dealership network. The automaker has few showrooms and service centres in even major cities and that is a major negative. However, looking at the insane success which the Kwid has earned, Renault is definitely expanding its reach across the country.
The Renault Lodgy is one of the most under-rated cars in the mass-market segment. It is priced reasonable and offers excellent practicality, comfort and driveability. While the base variants of the car are popular in the fleet market, Renault is now targeting private buyers and with the launch of the Stepway variant, the Lodgy gets a premium touch as well, which makes it one of the stronger offerings in the MPV segment.
