New small car with Micra’s pulse
Pros : Good aerodynamic design, nice fuel efficiency, very easy to drive and gives a classy luxurious feel
Cons : Too similar to Nissan’s Micra
Renault is pretty new in the Indian car market and they are trying hard to explore and being part of the world’s one of the biggest market with huge potential for growth and the result of their continued amendments and improvements has finally taken a shape in the form of an adoring hatchback named “ Pulse”. Company will be launching its diesel version this year and the first glimpse is expected to be shown very soon. Renault shares a global partnership with Nissan and their alliance has resulted in the number of worldwide hits. The Pulse diesel has become the Renault’s first car as a single entity in the Indian market.
Renault pulse looks stylish and is very similar to the Nissan’s Micra however a closer look will defy the pre conceived notion and you would be able to understand the flashy elegant design Renault has come up with. Front looks smart and gives a pleasing personality to the car with flashing Renault grille and adoring alloys. Rear is bejeweled with beautifully designed lights that give similar visual cues like Micra’s rear from far.
Interior is what makes Pulse a queen. Use of luxurious upholstery and the best in class fabric and plastics differentiates the royal cabin from the rest of the crew however it would be right to say it a highly improved version of Micra but the basic looks like dashboard, front console and instrumentation are all similar.
The Pulse price range is 5.80 lakh to 7 lakh and it looks like Renault’s good market research and understanding of Indian customer needs helped them in developing a car that is all set to stir the small hatchback market.
