Speaking to Indian Autos Blog, a higher official at Renault India' corporate communications division, without getting into details, said the company will launch the Fluence in the month of June. He refused to give the exact time frame, but said the vehicle will be out in mid-2011.
We have already brought you two sets of exclusive spyshots of the Fluence spotted Pune by Snatak and more recently in Chennai by Bairesh. The Fluence will be launched in India with two very interesting engine options – a 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol engine producing 140bhp and the 1.5-liter diesel engine producing 105bhp, featured under the Micra'/Logan' bonnet.
The Fluence is expected to compete with the likes of the Chevrolet Cruze, Toyota Corolla and Skoda Laura. The vehicle will be made at the Renault-Nissan JV car plant in Oragadam, near Chennai. Next year we're expecting this segment to open up with two more players - Hyundai' Avante and Ford' Focus saloon.
