Dacia Lodgy Minivan Conceptually Sported-Up

Dacia Lodgy Seen On www.coolpicturegallery.us
Today, the Renault Group's Dacia brand has as much to do with sports cars as the Nissan GT-R powered Duster racer has in common with its production namesake.

But things change and there's always the possibility that the Romanian automaker may gain a little love from the French firm's Renault Sport division sometime in the future.

Which brings us to this rendering made by Khalil Bouguerra from Virtual-Car. The artist proposes a sporty package for Dacia's newly revealed Lodgy MPV appropriately named DS for 'Dacia Sport'. It includes a lowered body, different bumpers, door mounted mirrors, beefy alloy wheels and a tweaked front grille.

We could complete the fantasy flight with the Megane RS's high-revving 2.0-liter four banger while keeping the basic model's price, but back here on earth, if Renault were ever to produce such a model, something in the likes of a smaller displacement turbo'd petrol would sound more reasonable.

Pictures of both the rendered and the regular Lodgy people carrier follow after the break.

VW Reportedly Developing a Smaller CC Model Based on the Next Jetta


A four-door sedan is a four-door sedan regardless of the height and styling of the roof but automakers had to find some way to market their sportier looking saloons so they coined the somewhat ambiguous term "four-door coupe".

Among the many cars to sprout from this sub-segment are Audi's A5 and A7 Sportback models, BMW’s 6-Series Gran Coupe and of course, the founding Mercedes-Benz CLS.

In all cases, form takes priority over function as these saloons are merely more stylish and more often than not, less spacious and practical versions of the regular four-door models they are based on.

VW was the first mainstream manufacturer to introduce a four-door coupe with the Passat CC, which after its recent facelift, goes by the name of CC. Now the German carmaker plans to add a second, smaller model to its line-up of sporty sedans.

According to a report from Autoweek, the Wolfsburg carmaker has already given the green light to a Jetta-based (not the current, the next generation ) CC. It bears the internal designation SC (for “Sports Coupe”) and will ride on the VW Group's modular MQB platform.

“Our research suggests there is an increasing market for a sportier and more stylish version of the Jetta in the mold of the CC, only smaller and more affordable”, said a VW source familiar with the project.

The SC name might indeed be the new model’s official name. VW’s new car won’t be the only compact four-door sedan in the market: premium “sister” Audi has already previewed the sedan version of the brand-new A3 and Mercedes-Benz is currently testing the CLC, which is the CLS's little brother that could be unveiled in concept form as early as the upcoming Beijing Motor Show in April.
