The Romanian based automaker Dacia has recently announced that the brand new Lodgy MPV has won the L’Argus trophy.
According to the car manufacturer, the Dacia Lodgy has managed to win its first prestigious award, the L’Argus trophy, for family cars, after a jury has chosen the 1.5 dCi Laureate for its price, equipment level, spacious cabin, residual value and more. The L’Argus experts have calculated that over a time period of three years, at a 25,000 km made every year, with a 49 percent residual value, the Lodgy is “consuming” 0.25 euros per km.
The Dacia Lodgy has been also awarded with a five-star safety rating a few days ago by the Euro NCAP and the model is offering a 72 percent safety for adult occupants, 72 percent in children safety and 44 percent in pedestrian safety. The Dacia Lodgy has been officially presented to the public earlier this year, during the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, in a world premiere. The model is already available for order in several markets across the Old Continent. The five-door MPV is being offered with a choice of four engines, including the new 1.2 liter TCe with 115 HP and two diesel engines with 90 and 110 HP.
