IAB reader Bairesh Raj passed on these spyshots of the Renault Fluence testing on the GST road near Chennai. The launch will unfold in the next few months during which we expect Renault to announce a 1.5-liter diesel (think Nissan Micra) and a 2.0-liter petrol engine.
The Fluence will brought down to India from Turkey in the form of knock-down kits. Renault will be anxious to break out of the shell the Logan created with the more modern Fluence positioned in the Corolla-Cruze territory. Earlier spy pics sent by our Pune reader Snatak suggested Renault will offer an automatic transmission, possibly married to the diesel engine. Before that, Renault has to set up a dealership network.
