The very first Dacia Lodgy Taxi has been photographed while it was parked in Spain, and the model will provide cab service in Gran Canaria.
After being officially presented to the public in a world premiere during the 2012 Geneva Motor Show in March, the Dacia Lodgy is once again entering our news, this time as a taxi in Spain. The Dacia Lodgy in question is owned by Spaniard Rafael Afonso and he will be using the Romanian vehicle to provide taxi service in Gran Canaria, in the town of Ingenio.
The all-new Dacia Lodgy is 4.5 meters long and the model can be ordered with either five or seven seats. The cabin of the model has been significantly improved compared to other vehicles in the range like the Sandero, Logan or even the Duster. The Romanian MPV is offering luggage compartment space from 207 to 827 liters, but with the lower seats folded, the gap grows to 2,617 liters.
Under the hood, the Dacia Lodgy is getting a 1.2 liter turbocharged petrol engine, producing 115 horsepower, a 1.6 ltier with 85 HP and a 1.5 dCi diesel in two outputs, 90 HP and 110 HP. Dacia says that the Lodgy is also getting USB, AUX, Bluetooth, steering wheel controls and a 7-inch touch screen navigation system.
