Renault Scala Automatic launch announced, price awaited
Renault India is soon going to introduce the Renault Scala Automatic variant in the Indian car market. The car is expected to hit the showrooms by the end of this month. However, when enquired about the pricing about the car, the car maker decided to be tight-lipped. But moving from manual to automatic will certainly be expensive. According to fresh reports, the automatic Renault Scala with petrol engine will be about Rs. 80000 more than the manual variant. The company will not be introducing diesel powered Scala Automatic for the time being.
