Renault has added the Lodgy's Stepway Edition to their 85PS portfolio in India at a starting price of Rs 9.43 lakh (ex-showroom New Delhi). The new variant gets some cosmetic changes and added features in the cabin over the regular MPV presently sold.

In terms of external appearance, the Stepway edition benefits from some cosmetic enhancements for it to look apart from the existing model. The fascia gets a new jewel-studded front grille, a new bumper and silver accents for the fog lamps. The roof rails get a chrome embellishment and the MPV rides on new 16-inch Panache Metal alloy wheels. The car gets front and rear wheel arch cladding for a beefier look and Stepway badging on its body.

The cabin has the same layout as the standard Lodgy, but the Stepway variant boasts of premium two-tone dashboard bearing piano black centre fascia with chrome surround. The car comes in seven- or eight-seater options and this trim features Gris Fume and Beige Alpaga premium leather blended upholstery. A MediaNav entertainment system finds a prominent place in the centre and supports a host of media options. The top-of-the-line variants continue to get dual front airbags, ABS, EBD, brake assist, rear parking sensors with camera, cruise control, speed limiter etc.

Earlier, Renault only offered the Stepway variant in the 110PS variant and now have introduced it in the 85PS variant as well. This means the Stepway variant can be had with the same 1.5-litre dCi mill offered in two states of tune - 108bhp and 84bhp. Transmission options include a five-speed manual for the 85PS variant and a six-speed manual gearbox for the more powerful version.

Sumit Sawhney, CEO and Managing Director, Renault India Operations, said, "India is an important market for Renault’s global growth plans and we have a thorough business strategy to grow our presence across the country. This is reflected by our product enhancement strategy, our rapid network expansion and fervent efforts to ensure customer delight. We have expanded our product portfolio to best suit the Indian customer and we have entered new segments to drive volumes. Renault Lodgy marked our entry in the MPV segment and is a breakthrough product that has redefined the benchmark of performance and convenience in the segment. We have kept Lodgy contemporary and appealing with sustained life-cycle management action and we are confident that the new Lodgy Stepway range will further strengthen Lodgy’s position in the MPV segment. It will play an important role in building the Renault brand in India as we look forward to the resurgence of the MPV segment given the thrust on infrastructure development."

The Renault Lodgy Stepway edition will be offered in six new colours - pearl white, moonlight silver, planet grey, royal orchid and the latest being slate grey and fiery red. The carmaker is positioning this trim as a premium version than the regular MPV and is targeting customers looking for a big, good-looking family car. The attractive pricing should help the carmaker garner more sales for the MPV in the Indian market.
