Dacia Jogger review - Practicality, comfort and boot space

Dacia has focused on maximising interior space in the Jogger, with plenty of flexibility for passengers and luggage

The Jogger is a very user-friendly family car; the seven-seat configuration provides decent flexibility, while the large windows make it feel light and spacious inside and also provide good visibility for the driver.

Sometimes it can be a bit of an ordeal climbing into the third row of a seven-seater SUV, but access to the rear seats in the Jogger is quite simple - you can either fold the middle row backrests, or flip the whole seat squab forward. And, once sat down, you can pop the rear windows out to allow fresh air into the cabin.

If you need extra carrying capability, then the Comfort model might be the better option. It features modular roof bars as standard which can be manually adjusted to a horizontal position and will hold up to 80kg of kit - particularly useful if the rear seats are occupied and taking up boot space.

Size

For a seven-seater family car, the Jogger is pretty compact. At 4,457mm long it’s 242mm shorter than a Skoda Kodiaq, while being 138mm narrower than the Czech SUV means it will be much easier to pilot around town and park up in tighter spaces.

Leg room, head room & passenger space

Room upfront for the driver and front passenger is fine, while buyers will be pleased to know that the Jogger doesn’t compromise on space as you move into the middle and rearmost seats. Accommodating three adult occupants across the second row should be pretty painless, while only the tallest of passengers will find that kneeroom is a bit limited in the rear seats.

Boot

It’s a tale of two halves with the Jogger’s boot space. If you’re carrying a full quota of passengers then there’s a modest 160 litres of luggage capacity, while folding the rear two seats unlocks a useful 565 litres. Dacia claims that, with both the second and third-row seats in a folded position, you’ll have up to 1,807 litres of cargo space. 

Towing

Adding to its practicality, the Jogger is rated to tow up to 1,200kg, which means it should be able to pull a trailer or even an average-sized (2-4 berth) caravan - although we’d always advise to double check any weight limits before setting off.

The GT86 has evolved into the GR86, gaining a bigger engine, a stiffer shell and chassis tweaks. Is it now affordable sports car perfection?
