MPG, running costs & CO2 Rating

4.5 out of 5

In cheap cars, you sometimes have to put up with hand-me-down engines that don’t offer as good fuel economy as rivals. But the Jogger uses a modern turbocharged petrol engine that’s shared with the Dacia Duster and the Renault Clio, so running costs are kept nice and low. 

It’ll be the impressive list prices that grab buyers’ attention, though. Prices start at under £15,000 at the time of writing, and the top-spec version costs less than the cheapest Volkswagen Polo supermini.

The low prices equate to cheap monthly payments if you’re buying through PCP finance; under £200 per month is easy to achieve with a minimal deposit.

Dacia Jogger MPG & CO2

Only one engine is available at launch. It’s a 1.0-litre petrol engine, with a turbocharger to improve power and fuel efficiency. Officially, the Dacia Jogger manages up to 49.6mpg, which is what you could expect from hatchbacks like the Volkswagen Golf and Ford Focus. During our test of the Jogger, we managed 44mpg, although this figure was achieved when the car wasn’t fully laden, so it’ll be slightly less economical with all seven seats filled.

Its CO2 emissions of 132g/km result in a reasonable Benefit-in-Kind tax band for company-car drivers, and the Jogger’s low P11D prices may appeal too.

Dacia’s Bi-Fuel engine is set to join the line-up later this year. This version allows you to switch the engine to run on petrol or LPG with a flick of a switch. Its claimed economy is 37.1mpg, but LPG is vastly cheaper to buy than petrol so should make it very affordable to run. With both tanks filled, a range of over 620 miles is possible. The switch between petrol and LPG is straightforward with a button mounted by the steering wheel, and a different fuel level display confirming which fuel source you're using.

Next year, the engine range will be bolstered by a new hybrid option. It’s the same one you’ll find in the Clio E-Tech, and Dacia says that up to 80% of journeys around town can be done on fully electric power. In the Clio, up to 64mpg is possible. While the bigger Jogger won’t be as efficient, it should still offer the lowest running costs.

Insurance groups

Insurance groups aren’t currently available for the Jogger, but its low price and relaxed performance might help bring its rating down. It shouldn't cost much more to insure than the Dacia Duster, which uses a similar range of engines that place it in groups nine to 11.

Warranty

Like every Dacia, the Jogger gets a three-year/60,000-mile warranty. That’s average at best, but will be fine for many drivers who’ll switch to a new car after that time anyway. If you do need a longer cover period, Dacia offers extended warranties up to six years or 100,000 miles.

Servicing

Dacia offers two service plans, which apply to any model. You can choose from three or four years of servicing, with 30,000 and 40,000 miles respectively, for £399 and £699. We’d pick the former, especially as it’s available for just £9.99 per month if you take the service plan out when you agree to buy the car.

Alternatively, customers who take out Dacia’s finance agreement currently get the first two services for free.
