Renault’s focus on Duster has led the other models of its lineup to sulk with low sales. One such correct example is none other than the hatchback Pulse, which is actually the rebadged Nissan Micra, but isn’t doing well unlike its Japanese sibling. Now, to push the model a step forward, company launched the 2015 trim with minute nip and tucks that would let it to surge against the competitors, just doing a whole lot of difference with features and a much lesser investment. Penning down the add-ons carried out, there comes the automatic headlamps, steering-mounted controls, adjustment options for the driver seat, engine start-stop button, smart key, auto folding wing mirrors, 2-Din music system with Bluetooth and USB connectivity, ABS, EBD dual airbags and crash sensors. Now the dashboard too goes under knife for the dual-tone skin run across by piano black finish on the central console.
Hence, this much is changed on the hatchback, while technicalities continue to do with the existing 1.2-litre petrol motor worth of 76PS and 104NM of torque. Alongside, the diesel trim that holds the Renault’s very own K9k diesel engine, which is used in the Duster too, for a max output of just 64PS. Both the cars come attached by a 5-speed manual transmission.
Renault offers lucrative after sales services, which means the 157 service centres across nation is more than enough to serve the purpose as compared to the cars the brand sells.
