The Lodgy hasn't been all that successful as Renault India would've hoped for. The French MPV has averaged less than 400 units in the past six months, facing competition primarily from the stupendously successful Toyota Innova Crysta and Maruti Suzuki Ertiga. The Stepway edition might just help the automaker attract more customers towards the Lodgy, especially clubbed with other end of the year offers with the automaker offering benefits up to ₹ 1 lakh across all models.
