Logbook Dacia Jogger 100 ECO-G – week 1

Dacia Jogger, in addition to the recreational air that was given to it by the communication departments, has a strong appeal among those who are looking for a practical model to help them in their everyday life. For a month, we drove a Subaru Outback on the right and we drive with the local interpretation of a multipurpose station wagon.

In our view, the most coveted Jogger model is the one with the 100 ECO-G engine, therefore we chose this one from the Dacia fleet to see what it means to live with this model.

In recent years, Dacia models have become synonymous with dual fueling – with gasoline and LPG. It is a technical solution that allows reducing emissions without “negatively interacting” with the price of the models. They are technical solutions that allow the builder to remain in the accessible area in terms of prices. Access to new technology is synonymous with an increase in price. It’s no secret that in the autumn there are chances to see the first hybrid model from Dacia, its commercialization being scheduled for 2023. Until then, we have the ECO-G solution to be greener.

Under the hood we have a supercharged 999 cc engine. The performance of the engine, according to the technical sheet, differs so much depending on the fuel used that you have the impression that the car is equipped with two engines.

If gasoline is used for fueling, we are talking about 90 HP at 4,800 rpm and a torque of 160 Nm also available at 2,100 rpm. Emissions are 134 g/km CO2 according to the WLTP measurement cycle, and the maximum speed is 172 km/h. If the engine is powered by LPG, we are talking about a power of 100 HP at 4,600 rpm and a torque of 170 Nm at 2,000 rpm. Emissions are 118 g/km CO2 according to the same measurement cycle, and the maximum speed is 175 km/h. What Dacia offers is a factory system, one that benefits from a warranty, obviously there is a special mapping for the engine at the moment when LPG is selected as fuel.

This is not the first meeting with this ECO-G engine, only then it was under the hood of a Logan. This time we have a slightly fatter model, an extra 170 kg empty in the right of this Jogger compared to a Logan. In terms of performance, we are talking about a maximum speed of 175 km/h, the Logan boasts 186 km/h. And from 0 to 100 km/h is reached in 12.3 seconds. In other words, I think we should dream less about hundreds of horsepower and sprints up to 100 km/h in unreal times and be more frugal on public roads.

A first week in which we only used gas for fuel. I can’t say that I was extremely kind to her, I even forced the note to see roughly where the maximum LPG consumption could be. So navigated through Bucharest at the nicest hours, when you spend more time in traffic than driving, highway sections with the car lightly loaded and driven at pace on the circuit… because the Jogger also qualified as a logistics car for a few days spent on the Deep MotorPark.

In total, I drove about 350 km in one week with a full tank of LPG. To be honest, the car stayed in Land Rover’s yard for two days while I tested the new Range Rover, a test drive that could be read in the weekly Weekend Adevărul. The average consumption was somewhere between 12.5 and 12.8 liters. As the price of gas is about half of the price of gasoline, with an average of 4.10 lei (the 50 pennies will not be eternal), it results in an equivalent to a consumption of 6-6.5 liters of gasoline, which would be a very good value. You will probably raise an eyebrow when you see that Dacia announces an average LPG consumption of 7.8 liters. It is a long way to reach the 12.5 liters obtained in the first week, but the usage regime has nothing to do with the WLTP test cycle. We are also preparing quiet long-distance getaways for this Jogger to have the most accurate picture of consumption.
