French carmaker Renault received a severe blow on Wednesday, after the European New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) gave a zero rating to the Renault Zoe model, and Dacia Spring received a single star, after the new test protocol that became standard for Europe, according to the results sent to the editorial staff by EuroNCAP.
Dacia underscores its C-segment ambition with a new family model accessible offering 5- and 7-seater versions. The Dacia Jogger stands as the fourth pillar of Dacia’s product strategy. Having released its small all-electric city car Spring, compact Sandero, and SUV Duster, Dacia is now revamping its family car into a new 7-seater model. A new model launch that follows on with Dacia’s plan to renew its range, with two more models set to be released by 2025.
It will be known as Dacia Jogger! A simple, strong, and international name for the latest big brother sibling in the Dacia family – a versatile 7-seater family car – that will be unveiled during a live on-line event on September 3rd. The first opportunity to see the Dacia Jogger in its true outdoor environment will take place on September 6th at the main gates of the 2021 IAA Motor Show in Munich.
Miles Nürnberger will join the DACIA & LADA Business unit as Design Director starting September 1st, 2021. He will join its Management Committee under the guidance of Denis Le-Vot, CEO of DACIA and LADA brands. He will report to Laurens van den Acker, EVP, Corporate Design and member of the Board of Management of Renault Group.
Dacia has enhanced and updated its Duster SUV model. This latest version features refreshed design elements, up-to-date features, and technology all while continuing to offer the same robustness, comfort, and value-for-money which it is famed for. The new SUV comes with both 4×2 and 4×4 versions.
Dacia’s renewal is embodied by a new logotype and a new emblem , markers of a distinctive and assertive brand. These two new design elements were created internally by the Design team, with the desire to express the brand’s essence, one that has guided Dacia since its beginnings.
Since 2013, Dacia has been a partner to three mountain rescue associations in Slovenia, Croatia and Serbia. Every year, three Duster are loaned free of charge to the response teams to transport equipment, rescue dogs and survivors, in wild, hard-to-reach locations. These volunteers risk their lives to come to the aid of others. They show us how they use this precious logistical support.
Dacia Duster leaves the factory with an installation that allows it to be equipped with LPG. It is mounted on the supercharged one-liter engine in the Dacia range on several models. In this form, the Romanian SUV returned to the AutoReport.ro test-drive series.
