Performance & drive

What it’s like to drive, and how quiet it is

Engine, 0-60mph and gearbox

The only Dacia Jogger engine option is a turbocharged 109bhp 1.0-litre petrol. That gives you a 0-62mph time of 11.2sec – slower than the Citroën Grand C4 Spacetourer and Volkswagen Touran. In the real world, it has a reasonable amount of zip to keep up with the flow and nip out into traffic. The power delivery is quite abrupt, though, with lag at low revs before the turbocharger kicks in and pushes you into your seat. As a result, this isn’t the smoothest way to travel around.

Pressing the Eco button on the dash could be the solution. It softens the engine response to improve fuel economy, but also results in a more relaxed style of driving.

The Jogger's raised ride height gives it 200mm of ground clearance, and you might expect it to become a bit floaty at speed. However, it deals with lumpy B-roads well and provides decent body control over undulations on the motorway, so car sickness shouldn’t be an issue.

Handling

If you’re expecting the Jogger to lean over like a drunken sailor, don’t worry. For a tall car in the MPV class, it remains on a remarkably even keel. 

It also grips the road well, enabling you to carry a bit of speed through the bends. If you're looking for a people carrier that’s more enjoyable to hustle around, try the Ford S-Max.
