Renault has entered the most competitive car segment in the Indian market with the launch of their Pulse hatchback.
Renault Pulse is an interesting car. It comes powered with a 1.5-litre dCi engine delivering 64PS at 4000rpm and a peak torque of 160Nm at 2000rpm.
Renault claims that this model would give fuel efficiency of 23kmpl. Two variants are going to be sold: RxL and RxZ. RxL is priced at Rs. 5.7 lakhs. RxZ is priced at Rs. 6.25 lakhs.
The top end model would come loaded with premium features like passenger and driver air bags, engine start stop button, automatic climate control, 15-inch alloys etc.
Renault India spoke about their plans for the Indian market:
We have come a long way to what we had committed two years back to our Indian customers at the previous Auto Expo. The Pulse is a product designed and developed by our Indian design studio at Mumbai, focusing on the Indian customer’s aspirations, tastes and preferences. We are very optimistic about the performance of Renault’s first mass segment product and expect the Pulse to add a new chapter to Renault’s growth story in India.
