Dacia UK has opened online pre-ordering for its new seven-seat SUV, the Dacia Jogger.
The Renault-owned, value-driven car brand revealed what was destined to become the new car market’s cheapest seven-seat vehicle back in September and has now revealed full specification details and prices starting from £14,995.
The Jogger is available in three trim levels – Essential, Comfort, and Extreme SE – with a specification which includes air conditioning, cruise control and rear parking sensors as standard across the range.
Dacia said the new model – based on an extended version of the Sandero platform – features “innovative modular roof rails” and split-folding seats to deliver “unrivalled practicality and versatility”.
At 4.5 metres long (and with 200mm of ground clearance), the Jogger’s boot space measures 213 litres with all seats in place but grows to 712 litres with the third-row seats folded.
With the second-row seats folded down and the third-row seats removed, the Jogger provides 1,819 litres of cargo space.
Initially offered with a 110PS 1.0-litre petrol engine and a 100PS Bi-Fuel LPG powertrain, when deliveries get underway in H1 next year, an electrified hybrid version will launch in 2023, using a 1.6-litre petrol engine and two electric motors, Dacia has confirmed.
The three-trim model range starts with the Essential, which includes manual air conditioning, cruise control with speed limiter, rear parking sensors, an adjustable steering wheel, automatic headlights, front fog lights, electric front windows and Automatic Emergency Braking System (AEBS).
Dacia’s smartphone-based Media Control infotainment set-up is also standard.
The Jogger’s Comfort trim starts at £16,995 and adds modular roof rails, body-colour door handles, electrically adjustable and heated door mirrors with dark metal finish, automatic wipers, rear parking sensors with reversing camera, and 16-inch ‘Flex’ steel wheels.
Electric rear windows, an electric parking brake, keyless entry, automatic air conditioning, blind spot warning, and Dacia’s eight-inch Media Display system is also added to the Comfort specification.
At £17,395, the limited-run Extreme SE trim introduces 16-inch alloys, both front and rear parking sensors with a reversing camera.
Inside, there are heated front seats, built-in navigation and wireless smartphone mirroring.
