The square SUV will be Dacia’s top model

In four years, Dacia will launch the car that we have now come to know as a Bigster study at an event on the future of the Renault Group. This will be the top model of the jointly controlled Dacia-Lada Group, which will also be available as a Lada Niva , and is also expected to be offered as a Dacia with two body styles – a 5-person short and a 7-person extended wheelbase. The Bigster is a precursor to the latter, i.e. the family car design.

The shape is surprisingly square, perhaps unsurprisingly, you can discover the formal features of Volvos made in a similar style, on the side wall you can see the upward-turning beltline of the XC40, seen from behind the previous generation XC90 in the Bigster, Dacia’s current Y-shaped light motif also reminiscent of the driving light referred to by the Swedes as Thor\’s hammer. The 4.6 -meter body hides a seven-person passenger compartment, with the shorter body receiving only two rows of seats.

We don’t know much about the technical side, as even the Euro 7 standard has not yet been adopted in Brussels, but Renault\’s newly developed internal combustion engines are expected to be available in the Bigster series. The 1.0-liter turbo will be replaced by the 1.2 TCe, which will also be offered as part of E-Tech’s self-charging hybrid powertrain, the 1.33 turbocharged engine will be retired by a 1.5-turbocharged engine; there will be no more diesel.
