Acceleration & Pick-Up

Ed's Take: The acceleration of the Renault Pulse is good and both the engines have linear power delivery.

 

The diesel and petrol engines are skillfully coupled with a five speed manual transmission gear box that allows torque distribution to its front wheels. The petrol trims consume approximately 15 to 16 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 100 Kmph. At the same time, it can achieve a top speed that ranges between 140 to 145 Kmph, which is rather good. The variants with diesel engine can break the speed mark of 100 Kmph in 14.5 seconds from a standstill and attains a top speed of 160 Kmph.

Engine and Performance

Ed's Take: The 65bhp diesel and 75bhp petrol engines aren’t just good on paper, but even have good performance.

 

As said above, this compact hatchback is available in both petrol and diesel engine options. The petrol variants are fitted with a 1.2-litre, XH5 power plant, which comes with a displacement capacity of 1198cc.

This petrol mill has the ability to churn out a maximum power of 74.9bhp at 6000rpm in combination with a peak torque output of 104Nm at 4000rpm.

It has the ability to produce 63.1bhp at 4000rpm along with a maximum torque output of 160Nm at 2000rpm. Both engines are skilfully mated with a five speed manual transmission gear box, which sends the engine power to its front wheels.

Mileage

Ed's Take: The Pulse gets Renault’s most frugal K9K diesel mill, which is one of the most fuel-efficient oil burners.

 

The petrol mill is incorporated with an electronic fuel injection system that enables it to deliver a maximum mileage of 18.06 Kmpl on highways . At the same time, it gives about 15 Kmpl within the city. On the other hand, its diesel mill with a common rail based fuel supply system helps in returning around 20.04 Kmpl in the city and gives 23.08 Kmpl on bigger roads, which is quite good.

Braking & Handling

Ed's Take: The Pulse has been tuned for better ride, hence the handling isn’t as good as a European competitor.

 

Its front axle is assembled with a McPherson strut, while rear axle is fitted with torsion beam type of mechanism. This suspension system is further assisted by coil springs that gives a comfortable drive and also supports its stability. On the other hand, its front wheels are fitted with a set of ventilated disc brakes, whereas the rear wheels get a set of conventional drum brakes. The braking mechanism of RxL Option and RxZ variants is enhanced by anti lock braking system along with electronic brake force distribution and brake assist function.

Renault’s innings in India began with its association with Mahindra and this got the French car maker’s first car model-the Logan in India.

  • Renault introduces 2014 Renault Pulse
    Posted On | | 2653 Views

    Renault has silently updated its Pulse, the 2014 Renault Pulse now features subtle changes which are mostly to its interiors. Thus, the hatchback features a revised dashboard which has directly been picked from the updated 2013 Nissan Micra. To point out this sort of a component sharing between two international brands is only possible due to the global technical tie-up between Renault and Nissan that allows them to do so. In addition to this change, there is also a new colour (Cosmo Blue), which has been added to the existing line-up of paint schemes available on the model. In general, Renault Pulse competes with rivals like Maruti Suzuki Swift, Hyundai i20, Hyundai Grand i10, Ford Figo and new Nissan Micra.

  • The 'L' Car Volvo S60L Planned for China; Might Hit India too
    Posted On | | 1945 Views

    The Chinese dragon theme and the plethora of Sports Utility Vehicles were not the only highlights of the Beijing Auto Show 2012; another subject that garnered a lot of attention was the growing line-up of lengthened cars which are known as the ‘L’ cars. The Chinese car market is starting to flood with lengthened cars, and the word is the Swedish auto giant Volvo is going to manufacture the S60L in Chengdu by the end of current year. Volvo China is also planning on an annual production of around 200,000 units and in addition to the Volvo S60L the XC60 is expected to go into production as well. These two cars are expected to cater to the huge demand of lengthened cars and SUVs in the car market of China. China imports S60 from Holland which adds the expensive tag to this car since the prices start from 280,000RMB for the 1.6T version and from 300,000RMB for the 2.0T version. The Volvo S60L is also speculated to make an entry in the booming car marker of India since the elongated wheel-base makes a lot of sense for the Indians.
