About Renault Pulse

Renault Pulse is the first hatchback from French auto giant for the Indian market which shares platform with Japanese partner’s Micra hatchback. Positioned in the B segment, the hatchback is akin to Micra in terms of looks, featuring mild changes. Pulse range is available in petrol as well as diesel engine choices-1.2 litre, three pot, in-line petrol engine and 1.5 litre, 4 cylinder, in-line, dCi unit. The petrol engine is good for 75bhp whereas the diesel mill yields 63bhp, both the engines come mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. The ARAI rated claimed fuel economy for the petrol engine is 18.06km/l and 23.04km/l for diesel variants. The hatchback gets eminent safety and comfort features such as dual front airbags, ABS with EBD and brake assist, front fog lamps, automatic head lamps and automatic climate control etc on the top-spec trim.

Renault India's first roll out in the populous hatchback segment was Pulse, this was also the first volume segment model from the stables of Renault. Prior to Pulse, Renault had brought two D segment offerings-Fluence and Koleos in Indian market and hence the company had a lot of expectations from Pulse in terms of sales. Launched at the 11th Auto Expo in Delhi, Pulse was initially introduced in diesel engine followed by petrol variant later that year (May 2012). Sharing platform with Nissan Micra, Pulse looks an alter ego of its Japanese cousin featuring almost similar exterior and interior. Mechanically also, these two cars have a lot in common, this is due to the platform sharing concept which turned out to be a fiasco in India.The cost saving initiative by car makers in India just did not go down too well with the customers, or rather we can say the rebadged engineering flopped miserably. Agreed that Pulse shares comprehensive similarities with Micra but on the whole the hatchback is a great mix of looks, performance and features. Coming to the engine line-up, Pulse is available in three cylinder petrol and four cylinder diesel engine. The petrol mill is a 1198cc, in-line, DOHC unit producing 76PS at 6000rpm along with 104Nm at 4000 rpm. Diesel engine on the other hand is a dCi unit displacing 1461cc developing 64PS at 4000rpm and 160Nm at 2000rpm. Two toned interiors are inspired from Micra and feature piano black finish on centre console.
