Renault will develop a cross-wagon, which may become the successor of Largus

Dacia, a Romanian subsidiary of Renault, is working on an affordable cross-wagon.

In the Dacia line, the model will replace such models as the Logan MCV and Lodgy. According to the assumptions, the 2-volume Dacia will be distinguished by the presence of a 7-seater cabin and will share architecture with the 3rd generation Logan. In the future, the new product may change the Largus.

As the L`Argus portal informs on Saturday, May 23, the cross-universal under the Dacia brand will be based on the simplified CMF-B platform, and the technical part of the model will be repeated by the 3rd generation Logan. It is expected that the novelty will receive a length of 4.5 meters.

 The Renault group is not satisfied with the demand for the Dacia Lodgy, for this reason the successor will most likely have a stylish body and an appearance unusual for budget models. At the same time, the new cross-wagon is distinguished by practicality, like the Logan MCV, and it will also acquire a 3-row interior. For Renault, the release of the new product will provide an opportunity to reduce costs, as 2 products will be replaced by one.

 Apparently, the Dacia novelty will be equipped with motors, like the new Logan and Sandero: initially, the 2-volume will receive gasoline turbo engines 1.0 and 1.3 TCe, as well as a 1.5 dCi turbodiesel. Later in the lineup, a hybrid variation of the E-Tech may appear, including a 1.6 gasoline naturally aspirated engine, 2 electric motors and a 3-shaft gearbox.
