Renault Scala launched in India at Rs 6.99 lakh
Renault Indian has launched their 5th car in India, the Scala. Prices for the petrol variant start at Rs 6.99 lakh going up to Rs 7.85 lakh while the prices for the diesel start from Rs 8.69 lakh ex-Delhi. The Scala will compete with the Nissan Sunny and Honda City.
Like the way the hatchback Pulse is derived from the Nissan Micra, the Scala is a rebadged Sunny. The front fascia is where the major transformation has taken place with Renault badge resting on the gaping mouth place which incorporates the front grille and air dam give the car a more aggressive stance as compared to its Japanese sibling.
From the side, the car is exactly the same as the Sunny except for the new alloys. The rear has minor changes incorporated into it, like the chrome strip connecting the tail lamps and the blacked out area in the fender.
The interiors are the same like the Sunny exception being the availability of leather seats on the diesel RXZ trim. Both the petrol and diesel engines have been carried over from the Sunny. Renault will also be offering an automatic gearbox later on for the petrol variant.
