2013 Renault Dacia Dokker | Review, Price, Interior, Exterior, Engine. – Morocco may not be a place that often pops up on the radar of the international automotive industry, unless it’s about al-Qaeda threats on the route of the Dakar rally.

After the launch Dacia Lodgy, Dacia again expanded its market reach by launching a twin car, 2013 Dacia Dokker and 2013 Dacia Dokker Van. They will go on sale in June 2012.

The new 2013 Dacia Dokker to the needs of target customers who want a mix of vehicles that can carry big loads, but also accommodate their family comfortably. User friendly modularity of the rear bench seat allows up to 3M3 additional capacity that will be released, making it ideal for professional use.

We’ve got to show you a preview of the new low cost MPV Romania, Dacia Dokker 2013, some time ago, but today the group company Renault has released official photos gallery all in high definition and also with technical informations. The images that you can find in the gallery as always in high definition shows us both the MPV version of the new car, called simply Dacia Dokker, is the truck version, called Dacia Dokker Van instead. Needless to say that the two cars are almost equivalent: the only differences are the absence of windows and the rear seats in the van, also characterized by both internal and external finishes more spartan. The new Dokker derives in part from the SUV Dacia Lodgy , with which it shares the aesthetics and interiors, and partly from the previous generation of the Renault Kangoo, which it shares with the platform.

The Dacia Dokker is a leisure activity vehicle developed by the Romanian manufacturer Dacia, built in Tangier, Morocco. It was officially launched at the 2012 Casablanca Auto Show and initially went on sale in Morocco in June 2012. It will be available in Romania starting the end of September 2012. It is manufactured in passenger and panel van variants.

Dacia is pushing the development pedal to the metal these days. After the carmaker gave us the Lodgy MPV at the Geneva Motor Show, it is now developing the second generation of the Logan and Sandero, making its debut on the UK market and now it has released the full specs (and more photos) of the Dokker and Dokker Van light commercial vehicles.

In UK, the Duster will be badged the Dacia, with the SUV being imported from India, where it will be manufactured at Renault-Nissan’s Oragadam production unit, off Chennai. The Renault Duster SUV was showcased at the 2012 Indian Auto Expo and is one of the big product launches from the French automaker for the Indian market in 2012. The Dacia Duster SUV will be positioned as a compact SUV and is anticipated to take on the Ford EcoSport crossover, that could debut at the end of 2012.

The Dokker joins another recent model launched by Dacia, the Lodgy, a 7-seater carrier with which the Dokker pretty much shares its front end design. Just like the Lodgy, the 2013 Dacia Dokker MPV is also family oriented as it comes with one or two sliding doors and a slightly smaller cabin which in this case provides seating for five, while the utility van features side panels instead of rear windows and a front bumper which is in contrast with the rest of the body.

2013 Renault Dacia Dokker Engine :
First seen under the bonnet of Collection 2012-versions of Renault Mégane and Renault Scénic, the 1.2 TCe 115 (Euro5) is the first Renault Group engine to benefit from direct injection and turbocharging, while its light weight is due to its aluminium block. This powerplant delivers a combination of driving enjoyment, frugal fuel consumption and low CO2 emissions, yet it still provides a level of performance (115hp) comparable to that of a 1.6-litre engine. Its generous peak torque of 190Nm is equivalent to that of a 2.0-litre engine, and 90 percent of this figure is available from as low as 1,500rpm, with maximum torque available between 2,000 and 4,000rpm to ensure crisp re-acceleration. This downsized powerplant drives through a five-speed manual gearbox and delivers combined-cycle fuel consumption of just 6.1 litres/100km, equivalent to CO2 emissions of 140g/km (Dokker Van: 6.2 litres/100km and 143g of CO2/km).

Under the hood, we get four engines, two of each religion. The entry level on is a 1.6 liter MPI that delivers 85 hp, which is followed by a downsized, turbocharged 1.2 liter TC3 that produces 115 hp. Diesel lovers can choose between two power levels of a 1.5 liter dCi unit, which offers 75 or 90 hp.

Renault’s low cost Romanian brand tells us that the designation of the models comes from “dockworker” and thus we have to expect them to be reliable and strong. However, the list of optional extras does include certain top class features, such as a touch screed 7 inch display, which is offered as part of the Media Nav infotainment system.

The diesel engine under the Duster’s hood is anticipated to be the 1.5 Liter K9K common rail turbo diesel engine with a variable geometry turbocharger. On the Duster, expect this engine to be in a similar state of tune as the Renault Fluence sedan, with a peak power output of 105 Bhp and a peak torque output of 240 Nm. Also, this engine could be available in a lesser state of tune, outputting 85 Bhp-200 Nm. While a 1.6 Liter petrol engine could also be a part of the Duster’s Indian engine line up, we’ll have to wait and watch as to how Renault plays its cards. Expect the Duster to be available initially with a two wheel drive system while a 4 WD system could join in later. Dacia Dokker combines generous dimensions 4.36m long, 1.75m wide and 1.81m tall with a spacious cabin. Alongside a capacity of 800 litres and load length of 1.16m, Dacia Dokker boasts the largest boot in its segment, while the modular rear seat makes it possible to free up even more room.

Dacia to launch Fiesta rival :
+. Dacia will expand its model line up with the Sandero, a Ford Fiesta rival that’s likely to be available from less than £7000 when it goes on sale in early 2013. The Lodgy a new five or seven seat MPV is already on sale in Europe, for less than €10,000 (around £8000). Dacia has yet to decide whether it will be introduced to the UK, but it could arrive by 2014, with a starting price below £10,000.
