Renault India, fully owned subsidary of Renaut s.a.s already has two models in its Indian portfolio. Renault had been in the news for quite some time now for its small car launch. There were many guesses on which small car would Renault bring to India. The top guesses were the Renault Modus and Renault Clio, but finally Renault proved all this wrong by finally revealing the made for India car "Renault Pulse". The Renault Pulse has been designed for India at Renault`s design centre in Mumbai.

Renault Pulse Engine

The K9K engine actually reflects the same principles which the RS27 engine stands for. The RS27 has been developed by Renault Sport F1 team, which has just powered Red Bull Racing and Sebastian Vettel to the double crown of the constructors’ and drivers’ title in the FIA Formula One World Championship. Renault`s initiative has always been to transfer high end F1 technology to production cars with class leading fuel efficiency.
As per statements at the launch, the Renault Pulse will be made available only in a 1.5 diesel variant.

Renault Pulse Design

Renault Pulse has been designed taking in mind the Indian conditions at the Renault Design Centre in Mumbai. The Renaul Pulse is however very similar to the Nissan Micra hatch. The main reason behind this can be because the Nissan Micra and Renault Pulse share the same platform.

Indeed, when we see the Pulse, we are reminded of the Micra at once.

Renault Pulse Exterior

Renault Pulse looks very butched from front. The Renault Pulse was shown to us in 2 very vibrant colours the (Nissan Micra) Red and our favourite, the sporty Yellow. The one in yellow elaborated all the lines and curves on the body.

When seen from the rear, If the logo wont have been there , one can easily confuse it with Nissan Micra. They are not just similar but very identical.

Renault Pulse Interior

Renault Pulse Interior boasts the same Nissan Micra stylings. The Centrally placed music system and the retro styled control knobs are a very good touch. The big O type display for AC display elaborating climate control is also very impressive.

Renault Pulse Price

Renault Pulse pricing is still under wraps and January 2012 will be the official time of revealing it. Our reliable sources have hinted a price gap of Rs.5-6 lakhs. Let’s hope Renault makes this a price conscious decision and gifts the Indian consumers a good "Pulse"

  • Companies charing platoforms is understood. but they shud atleast do some work by atleast changing some look and feel of the car. Lazy work renault. I dont think renault has good future unless they really launch India targeted car.

  • This is the same car Nissan Micra which has been re branded/rebadged as Renault Pulse. The only change i see is with the front bumper which has a better look. Even the interior is the same as Micra. I dont think Nissan Micra is a big hit in Indian Market due to its premium pricing. And now Renault is repeating the same mistake by pricing it even more higher.

  • the pulse is afterall a micra with a horrible nose job...

  • mr. vijaya kumar, hw come u compare a petrol car ( A Star ) with a diesel one.And when u talk about renault or other european cars, they are full on features plus the focus is always on safety & comfort as well which maruti cars completely lack.and no doubt they have shamelessly copied nissan micra, jst changed the logo, same wine with new bottle. uses the same 1.5 dci engine micra has. interior exactly same. i think both nissan and renault share the same manufacturing platform in india ( although not 100% sure)

  • Better to go for Maruti A star, it is really excellent & low price too on this segments.Though every car maker is trying to copy the A star but none could succeed K series engine, moreover its maintenance cost is much lower than any car, as it is a INDIAN car. - vijay

  • Gimmicks will not work in Indian market as this REBADGED MICRA do not seem to enthrall anybody. Seems the Renault management do have poor study on Indian market or substandard advisers who still live in dark ages. Introduce your DUSTER asap with automatic transmission but make sure do not exceed 12 lakhs on road price

  • Its like a Version 2 of Micra. Thats not a problem. Micra is a good car. But we Indians didnt like the style. Pulse is certainly stylish. Wish if the designers could have changed that rear. Whatever welcome to pulse.
