Keyless entry with an engine starter button (already available feature), electrically-folding wing mirrors, a 2-DIN music system with USB and Bluetooth (also a feature that has been available on the car), steering-mounted controls and automatic headlights are features Renault India say has been provided on the Pulse. Safety wise, the car comes with ABS and dual front airbags.

There are no announced changes to the powertrain of the Pulse. The petrol variant gets a 1.2-liter three-cylinder motor producing 76 PS and 104 Nm of torque, while the diesel’s 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine produces 64 PS and 160 Nm of torque. Both engines are paired to a 5-speed manual transmission.

Renault India’s announcement of the 2015 Pulse comes on the back of reports that stated production of the Pulse last took place in October 2014, owing to poor demand.

    Figo, grand i10 and pulse are the ones I would consider. Ford never really did well in india despite the success with fiesta. Hyundai is the king in the segment. Yes, I would rate them over swift which is quite old now. Renault is trustworthy and pulse is genuinely a good car with mileage at par with gran i10 and safety features on the higher side as well as lower cost but without hyundai’s trust gained over years. In the end it think it comes down to which onw you like as far as looks are concerned which is always a personal matter.

    Seems like renault has made it a point to revamp this car and bring it back into the market. Even the old version was a good car but somehow did not gain attention as people were busy discussing rebadging, comparing it through and through with the micra. I loved this car and I am really happy that I decided to buy it. No regrets.

    That will mean pulse will be more lucrative for people who are looking to buy a hatchback. Nice improvements renault!

    Can’t wait to check out the new Pulse!

    Pulse is a good car but unfortunately people did not trust it. I am sure many like me who have bought pulse a few years ago must be happy with its performance.
