This is the new Dacia Jogger. It’s not some new kind of exercise machine, rather a seven-seater SUV that’s said to combine bits of estate car and MPVs too.
It’ll go on sale in the UK early next year and is expected to start around £13,000.
2023 Dacia Jogger design
The Dacia Jogger has a bit of everything — the length of an estate car, the shape of an MPV and the ground clearance of an SUV. Its designers said all three of those things inspired it, unsurprisingly.
Dacia’s new straked headlights, as seen on the latest Sandero, make an appearance on the Jogger and sit above big plastic surrounds for the fog lights.
Down the long side (4.5 metres in case you wondered) and you’ll spot 16-inch alloy wheels, the usual SUV plastic cladding and some carbon-effect decals.
If you’re really keen-eyed, you’ll spot the rear window sits higher than the front — that’s all part of an effort to increase space in the back with a raised roofline.
The back is dominated by vertically-set brakelights, sort of akin to those on an old Volvo XC60, with decals for badges as a presumable cost-saving measure.
2023 Dacia Jogger interior and infotainment
It’s a typical Dacia affair inside the Jogger — a sensible and robust layout if one that’s not all that exciting.
Entry-level cars will leave you relying on your smartphone for media and navigation functions, though Comfort and Extreme limited-edition cars do have an eight-inch touchscreen with support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The key thing here is the seven-seat layout though. The middle seats flip upwards to allow super easy access to the rear row, and those two seats in the back can be removed individually as desired.
With all seats in place, there’s 160 litres of boot capacity though that rises to 565 litres with the rear row removed.
2023 Dacia Jogger engines and hybrid
At launch, you’ll have the choice between a pure petrol or bi-fuel LPG version of the Dacia Jogger.
Both of these use a 1.0-litre, three-cylinder engine producing 110hp in the standard petrol car or 100hp in the bi-fuel. Both send power to the front wheels through a six-speed manual gearbox.
Later down the line in 2023, a hybrid car will be coming. This will see a 1.6-litre petrol engine linked up to two electric motors, in total producing 145hp.
This isn’t a plug-in car though, rather a ‘self-charging’ system. This does mean no manual option of pure electric driving, but Dacia reckons about 80% of urban roads will be done on electric power.
2023 Dacia Jogger price and release date
You’ll be able to get your hands on a Dacia Jogger in the early part of 2021, and orders should start being taken before the end of this year.
No exact word yet on UK pricing, but it’s estimated to start at around £13,000.
