New Renault Fluence launch later this year
Difficult to believe but Renault Fluence has got meek response, Renault Koleos too got uninspiring response so did Renault Scala and small car Renault Pulse. But Renault Duster has created history and has let the French car maker dream of making India its home comfortably. On the other hand, year 2012 has witnessed some of the most sensational launches from this car maker and this year, it will be launching the new models of its cars. The first to arrive seems to be new Renault Fluence which has already hit some of the prominent markets across the globe.
As per the reports, the new Fluence launch is on cards this year and it will be sometime during the festive season. The changes that have already appeared on the new Fluence in other countries will be incorporated on the Indian model as is. The countries which have already experienced the new car are Turkey and others. Now that it is certain that new model of the car is coming to India, all eyes are on the price revision that the car maker could think as India considers it as overpriced car and this seems to be the reason why it has not sell well in the country.
The changes will include a new look, new front appearance, new bumper design, alloys and a lot of subtle design changes that will keep the current look intact but will make it more refined and awesome. On the inside, the car has lot of redesigning in the form of new front console and digitization. Under the hood, the diesel models could also have an automatic variant addition which will further its prospects in the segment and will make it more attractive feature wise as well as price wise compared to Skoda Laura, Chevrolet Cruze and Toyota Corolla Altis.
