Renault Pulse Conclusion

So, the reality cannot be veiled that it’s an old car (Nissan Micra) in a newish layout, but still it’s a sensible hatchback car for a family of 4-5 individuals. As it has got friendly driving dynamics along with outstanding exterior design that senses ‘French’ combined by spacious and practical interiors, which is superior enough to win hearts of the customers. The hatchback will be seen fighting for space in the congested B-segment of Indian auto sector that already includes Volkswagen Polo, Ford Figo, Hyundai i20 and New Maruti Swift hatchback.

The French maker had started its journey in India by launching back to back premium models in the sedan and Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) segment. This can be termed as Renault’s second innings and a very comprehensive one that is far better than the earlier attempts. No doubt the company shows concern for the diesel car lovers, but lack of petrol motor in the lineup appears a bit worrying factor for the company on the fact, when the vehicle competes with premium hatchbacks in India. It can be said that the company has left no stone unturned with the introduction of Renault Pulse as a premium hatchback in the country.
