Joining the list of cool, compact, and clever European, outdoor-oriented vehicles which cannot be bought in the US are the Dacia Jogger and Jogger Extreme. To add insult to injury, Dacia has announced the release of its Jogger Sleep Pack, the first item in the brand’s newly founded InNature accessory range. The Sleep Pack enhances the versatility of the affordable Jogger wagon, transforming it into a mild road camper that can accommodate a family in a matter of minutes. The package includes a mattress, blackout privacy blinds for all windows, and a convenient storage container box with 220 liters of storage, weighing less than 50 kilograms. One person can quickly deploy the sleeping area after removing the rear seats and folding down the second row.
The Sleep Pack also comes with an optional “smart” tent that can be hooked up to the rear of the Jogger for additional space when the tailgate is open. This tent is voluminous, attaches to the rear of the vehicle, and comprises a dome tent sandwiched between two enclosed rooms. With the addition of the tent, the Jogger will easily accommodate a family, their pooch, and as much gear as they cram into and onto the little French weekender.
In addition to the Sleep Pack, Dacia has introduced the new Jogger Extreme for 2023. The outdoorsy version of the seven-seat wagon comes in Cedar Green with Copper Brown accents and a glossy black shark fin antenna. It features sills, B-pillars, and front-door stripes with a topographical design and 16-inch wheels with a glossy black finish.
Inside the Jogger Extreme, Dacia has introduced MicroCloud, a new grey upholstery on the seats, dashboard, and door cards that is easy to clean and has a velvet-like appearance. The front door panels and air vent surrounds feature a Copper Brown trim, and all three rows have rubber floor mats with a topographical design.
For the Jogger and Sandero Stepway, the Extreme trim level also adds Extended Grip as standard equipment. The system can be turned on by pressing a button on the center console, aiding traction and providing a better grip on loose surfaces. However, if all-wheel drive is what you’re looking for, the Duster remains the only Dacia model that sends power to both axles.
In Europe (France specifically), the Sleep Pack costs €1,490 when ordered with a new car or €1,790 when purchased separately, regardless of trim level.
