After inciting the public’s curiosity with the release of the first teasers, Dacia officially launches the Jogger 2022 van this Friday. Based on the new generation of the Logan/Sandero duo, the station adopts the CMF-B modular platform of the Renault group and combines features of van, multipurpose and SUV.

In design, the front practically doesn’t change compared to the Sandero, that is, wide grille, Y-shaped LED headlamps and bumper with ample lower air intake. The highlight is due to the rear, which is straight and equipped with huge vertical lights – in the style of Volvo vans. Sides, in turn, have a large glazed area, high ceiling and wide doors to facilitate occupant access to the cabin.

According to Dacia, there are 708 liters of luggage space with the 5 seats in use and 160 liters with all 7 occupants on board.

The space can also be used to accommodate walking equipment, tools and even transporting pets. To better organize the load, the trunk has hooks, rings and even a 12V socket.
