The Dacia Jogger tries its hand at the momentum test

The Dacia Jogger was introduced in the fall of 2022. This model is at the crossroads between a crossover and a station wagon. One thing is certain, this family vehicle will seduce more than one with its friendly design, its XXL trunk and the possibility of transporting up to 7 people.

The Spanish YouTube channel Km77 has made a specialty of trying new models in the momentum test, also called the avoidance test. Many cars have failed, and as you will have understood, the protagonist of this new video is the Dacia Jogger. The object of this exercise is to determine how fast the car can avoid an obstacle without hitting the cones.

Not surprisingly, the Dacia Jogger does not triumph at the speed of 77 km/h. With all the goodwill in the world, the driver had to reduce the entry speed to 70 km/h to finally manage to perform his avoidance maneuver without hitting a single cone. Now, if we compare the performance of the Dacia to that of other models tested before, we cannot really say that the Romanian is doing well. the Citroën Xantia which is more than 20 years old (see above).

The test driver notes that the Dacia Jogger is one of a kind understeer, even at an entry speed of 70 km/h. It cannot compete with the Ford Focus and Tesla Model 3 which are the champions of exercise with their entry speed of 83 km/h.

It doesn’t matter because the Dacia Jogger is not intended to take turns at high speed. As indicated at the beginning of the article, this is a wagon that will undoubtedly meet the needs of its customers. It is also cheap, its base price is set from €15,990 : who says better ?
