Renault Fluence synopsis
Renault brought the Fluence sedan to India in 2008 and then upgraded
it in 2012. The facelifted model which was launched at the 2014 Auto
Expo is the third change for the French automaker's D Segment sedan.
It was first unveiled at the 2012 Istanbul Motor Show and has been on
sale in Europe since the last one year.
The Renault Fluence now gets the family face of the French automaker.
It has been taken from the Zoe EV concept and is now a familiar deal
across all its models. The 2014 Fluence gets all-new bumpers, a new
grille to make the front fascia appeal to a wider audience, new
headlamps, tail lights that add more flair and all-new alloy wheels to
finish the new look.
Apart from the standard fare found on the outgoing car like leather
upholstery, electric seats and the rather cool looking digital display
gauge, the interiors also get an infotainment system with LCD screen,
front and rear parking sensors and automatic parking brakes.
The Fluence in India gets two engine options that includes a 2.0-litre
petrol engine making 137PS and 190Nm and a 1.5-litre K9K diesel engine
good to make 109PS power and 240Nm of torque. The petrol variant also
comes mated to a CVT automatic transmission while the diesel gets a
6-speed manual box.
