Dacia Jogger

Published on 28.03.2022

A family car for a very broad target

Dacia gave us the opportunity to test its new model, the Jogger, in the hills surrounding Nice.

This new addition to the family comes in a choice of two versions - a 5-seater and a 7-seater. In terms of engine, a 1L 3-cylinder engine delivering 110 horsepower and a 1L dual-fuel engine (LPG and petrol) are available to order, though the hybrid engine won't be available until 2023. There are no plans for a diesel or four-wheel drive versions. Next, you’ll need to choose the features you want from the three trim levels with few options available, which is, in itself, a good thing.

So what’s it like on the road? It's certainly pleasant enough to drive and we didn't feel like we were driving a 7-seater minibus. Even on mountain roads, the Jogger can easily be revved up to 1,500rpm, while on a motorway slip road, the LPG/petrol version will, of course, take a little longer to reach 110 or 130km/h. This is clearly no great warrior, then, but is that really its vocation anyway?

What’s more, its great strength lies in its modular design, with very easy access to the second and third rows. One little tip that may prove very handy, though, is that the third row, which consists of two individual seats weighing 10kg each, can easily be removed from the 7-seater version. The 5-seater version, meanwhile, does not give the option of adding a third row after you’ve purchased it, which is important to keep in mind when it comes to signing the order form.

Starting at €14,301 in the Grand Duchy for the 5-seater with the Comfort trim, this Jogger is priced at €18,217 with the Extreme trim, fully equipped with a 110hp 1L 3-cylinder engine.
