Not exactly a beauty, but I guess families will love it. Second hand Scenic residuals just went down considerably, i guess....

Ugly vehicle with an ugly name. Thanks Renault.

Looks alright for a Dacia, the headlight units look similar to those used on the Nissan Qashqai (facelift)

Looks just fine for a Dacia and its target group.
I saw some Dacia's for the first time on the north side of Cyprus (Turkish occupied) on my last visit and i have to say they looked more than decent in person

it looks ok to me, and styled somewhat fine. Perhaps renault is trying to pull a skoda like vw did.

I think it looks quite nice, and it's a huge improvement over other recent Dacias. Maybe Renault has decided to pay more attention to design in the forthcoming Dacia portfolio. Suddenly, putting a Renault badge on the nose wouldn't look so misplaced...

On the other hand, I think that rebadging it as a Renault would make it a nice replacement for the ScÚnic I here in South America. Since it was end-of-lifed (no more than two years ago) Renault has left the segment empty. They brought the Scenic II from Europe for a couple of years, but it was too expensive, and the ScÚnic III will never get here. So I think that the Lodgy would be a nice addition to our Renault line-up, nowadays made up from mostly from rebadged Dacias.

Except for CitroŰn and its expensive C4 Picassos and the original Xsara Picasso, there are no mid-MPVs here. The Chevrolet Zafira I was eol'ed last year, and there almost no competition in a segment that started being successful after the arrival of the original ScÚnic.

I agree, but it looks bland as a Toyota Avalon to a extent.

Not a name to use in England. One breakdown and it will get know as the Dacia Dodgy.....

That did come to my mind as well. But then again the Logan MCV is a lot simpler vehicle, thus cheaper. Also, the logn is mostly at the end of it's life I guess (it's been around quite long), so i guess the next gen. estate will be more car like, most likely the whole Logan range will have an exe on the forthcoming Skoda Rapid....

The interior look decent enough. Much nicer than the Duster IMO

Given that Nissan plans to revive the Datsun brand for some markets, I wonder whether they will badge engineer Dacias.
