Dacia's new Jogger is now on sale, with the seven-seat MPV. The company also announced that the Jogger will be the first electrified Dacia when a hybrid model appears in 2023.
The Jogger has a clear lifestyle focus, with 200mm of ground clearance and SUV-inspired styling that's followed by plenty of practicality. At just over 4.5 meters, it's the longest Dacia model in the range and, like all upcoming Dacia models, it's based on the brand's CMF-B platform.
Other usability-enhancing touches include folding picnic tables in the front seatbacks that slide up to 70mm, as well as integrated roof bars with removable sections that can be rotated 90 degrees, supporting a roof load of up to 80kg. .

The luggage compartment is 213 liters with all seven seats placed. It rises to 712 liters in five-seater mode, with a maximum load capacity of 1,819 liters available. It therefore removes the rear seats (an easy task, as we found out. This is every third row chair weighing just 10 kg) and folding the second row down.
The Jogger offers up to 24 liters of storage space spread across the glove compartment. It has door compartments (each with a one liter bottle) and a central lid compartment, with six cup holders also available.
Dacia's 1.0 liter three-cylinder turbocharged unit is the only engine since launch. It delivers 108 hp and 200 Nm of torque and is mated to a six-speed manual transmission.
The biggest news is that the Jogger will become Dacia's first hybrid model in 2023, with the car using the same 1.6-litre petrol engine. It has dual electric motor and 1.2 kWh battery configuration like sister brand Renault's Clio supermini. Dacia claims the Jogger Hybrid will spend up to 80% of its time on electricity in urban conditions.
The Paris Motor Show will see the Dacia Jogger lined up, therefore, alongside the Renault Group-derived hybrid unit, ahead of sales from spring 2023.
