The petrol variant will come fitted with a XH2 1.5L engine that generates 99 PS of peak power @ 6,000 rpm and 134 Nm of Torque @ 4,000 rpm.
The diesel avatar is powered by the 1.5-liter K9K mill that generates 86 PS of power @ 3,750 rpm and 200 Nm of torque @ 2,000 rpm.
Both engines are mated to a 5 speed manual. The Scala petrol will also be sold with a CVT option, but the prices have not been announced today.
A 2+2 year / 80,000 km warranty deal as well as the Renault ‘Complete Care’ package will also be provided with the Renault Scala.
