The Renault Fluence, Renault’s first launch post its break up with Mahindra is doing recent units. However the discrimination of the features list between the petrol and diesel models is forcing diesel customers to look the other way. Moreover, the diesel engine with its 105 Bhp output doesn’t cut the chord when stacked up against powerful competitors like the Cruze and Laura.
In a bid to change the equation, Renault India is looking at bumping up the power of the Fluence to 140 Bhp and also update the interiors of the diesel model. The coming month would see the launch of the updated Fluence and this would be a good news for all those customers looking to buy the diesel Fluence but found its interiors to be too barebones. There would also be a price hike to the tune of Rs 50k-Rs 1 lakhs.
