The Cruze-Corolla-territory Fluence is gearing up to change Renault' brand image in India, and here we have a spyshot of it undergoing final tests near the Oragadam plant sent in by our reader Muthu. The Logan', now known as Mahindra Verito, does not carry the diamond anymore making Renault a non-existent entity in India.
Renault' corporate communications team told us last week that Fluence launch date is fixed in June.
At launch we can expect Renault to announce the 1.5-liter diesel engine and the 2.0-liter petrol engine. An automatic transmission will also be offered.
The four-cylinder petrol engine makes 140bhp and while the four-pot oil burner from the Micra produces 105bhp. Renault India will hand out cars next month to gather feedback that can serve as inputs for last-minute adjustments.
Can the Fluence shake up the Cruze-Corolla territory with its compelling looks and fuel-efficient diesel engine?
