Renault Fluence

The Renault Fluence has been launched in India at a price of 12.99 - 14.40 lakhs (ex-Delhi).

What you’ll like:

• Solid build quality. Feels sturdy enough to withstand abuse
• Very spacious interiors. Easily the roomiest from this segment
• Balanced ride & handling package
• Well-equipped petrol variant (including 4 airbags, ESP, dual zone climate control, digital speedo etc.)
• Choice of smooth & revv-happy petrol, or economical diesel

What you won’t:

• Poorly equipped Diesel variant. Feels too basic (no climate control or even a proper stereo AUX input)
• The petrol engine's CVT gearbox is slow to respond. Saps the engine of power
• Messed up ergonomics. Also, many controls clearly have a left-hand-drive orientation
• Only 1 variant for either engine. No choice to the customer
Now some pics. 

Other Points:

- At the time of launch, the Fluence will be sold in 12 cities across India via 14 dealerships.
- Anti-rust warranty of 5 Years / 1,00,000 kms.
- The only RHD Fluence in the world to get beige interiors.
- Electric folding mirrors only operate automatically when the smart card is placed in its slot.
- Auto dimming rear-view mirror standard with the Petrol, diesel gets a manual one.
- ARAI Fuel Efficiency Figures: Petrol = 13.42 kpl / Diesel = 21.84 kpl.
- Will be available in 4 colors options; beige, black, white and maroon.
- 4 Years / 80,000 kms Standard Warranty.
- The Fluence which is based on the Megane scored 5-stars in the Euro NCAP Safety ratings.
