Dacia Jogger: Design and dimensions
Jogger borrowed some styling clues Large three-row SUV concept car It is supported by the CMF-B platform, which also supports the Sandero hatchback. However, the wheelbase has been lengthened by 300 mm to accommodate the additional rear seats.
Jogger combines “luxury car practicality, MPV spaciousness and SUV styling.” With a ground clearance of 200 mm and a length of 4,547 mm, it is Dacia’s largest model, even longer than the Lodgy with a length of 4,498 mm. Although it is an MPV, the Jogger has a cross-over appearance with a modular roof bar, anti-scratch board and body cladding.
Sandero and Jogger look the same from the B-pillar forward, except for the added sturdiness. However, Dacia designed a 40mm step backward from the B-pillar to provide additional height and width, allowing the rear cabin to benefit from additional passenger space.
Dacia Jogger: Interior and function
The interior of Jogger is the same as Sandero, sharing a floating touch screen infotainment system, climate control knob, steering wheel and instrument panel. Dacia provides three systems for multimedia interfaces-Media Control, which includes a smartphone stand and docking station; Media Display, which adds four speakers and an 8.0-inch touch screen; and Media Nav, which brings wireless Android Auto And Apple CarPlay, satellite navigation and six speakers.
Jogger has three rows of flexible seats, the middle row rolls forward and 60:40 apart. None of them can lie flat on the floor or slide back and forth, and Dacia believes that these engineering modifications make the seats more expensive and take up more space. The luggage compartment volume is 160 liters, the last row is in place (enough for a small shopping trip), and if the last row of seats is completely removed, it can be increased to 708 liters.
Dacia Jogger: Powertrain options
Thanks to a flexible platform borrowed from parent company Renault, Jogger will be equipped with three engines. First is the 1.0-liter three-cylinder turbocharged gasoline, which can produce 108 horsepower and 90% of the maximum torque of 200 Nm at 1,700 rpm. This is the version that may account for most of Jogger’s sales.
A 99hp LPG Jogger will also be offered, using the same dual-fuel engine as Sandero. 0-100kph time and fuel economy data have not yet been announced. This hybrid vehicle will be launched in 2023 and combines a 1.6-liter gasoline engine, two electric motors (one is an electric motor, the other is an enhanced alternator), a multi-mode automatic transmission, and a 1.2kWh battery To make electric cars. Can only run short distances.
