Renault will have another budget model: it will be a seven-seater crossover, which the brand will offer customers instead of the Lodgy model. This information was passed at the end of spring this year.

Now this story has been continued. According to the portal Motor.es, the new product has already entered road tests. Photo spies managed to photograph a test prototype with the Renault logo. It is expected that the announced “state employee” Dacia will replace not only the not in demand Lodgy station wagon, but also the Logan MCV model.

In the meantime, the new car is known under the RJI index. Most likely, she will get the CMF-B platform. Renault Clio, as well as new Logan and Sandero are based on it.

Recall that the CMF-B platform implies the installation of both traditional internal combustion engines and hybrid power units, as well as engines running on liquefied natural gas.

The length of the new cross will be about 4,500 mm. The landing formula is also very common 2 + 3 + 2.

At first, an inexpensive crossover was going to be presented in the spring of 2021. However, it is obvious that due to the coronavirus pandemic, the plans had to be adjusted: this is hinted at by the noticed prototype. So, most likely, the new SUV will debut in late summer and autumn next year.

Earlier on the Nürburgring race track, a prototype of the “charged” VW Golf R Variant was seen. Such a car will receive excellent dynamic characteristics – this is hinted at by the video from the test drives that has got into the Network.
