Scala highlights

February 25, 2015: Renault India has reportedly put a temporary stop on the production of its Scala sedan and Pulse hatchback, citing low demands of these models in the country. As per the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM), the company hasn’t rolled out this model from the facility since 183 units were manufactured in May last year, while the last batch of the Pulse was made in October, accounting for mere 59 units.

And all that attention wasn't without reason, for the French car maker had made its intentions obvious, that it was ready to claim its share in the C segment automobiles. With such ambitious plans, the strength of its brand name combined with their own version of Nissan Sunny was reason enough for car lovers to go gaga about it. Well, there is no denying that Renault Scala is a clone of the Japanese car, i.e. N read more 13

Renault Scala Interior


Editor's take : The Scala has been designed for those who will like to be driven to work and will drive out with friends. Hence, there is an acre of space at the rear, and good enough room for head and legs in the front as well.


This sedan series is quite classy and has been designed with various comfort features.

It has a leather wrapped steering wheel mounted with audio controls, which makes it convenient for the driver. The gear knob is also wrapped in leather, which makes it look stylish.

Renault Scala Gear

Acceleration & Pick-Up

Editor's take : The acceleration of both the cars is good, however the petrol has an edge when both are compared. In overall, it is the diesel which will our pick.

The petrol engine is coupled with an efficient five speed manual and an X-Tronic CVT automatic transmission gear box as well. The manual versions can cross the speed mark of 100 Kmph in around 13.58 seconds, while attaining a top speed of about 155 Kmph, which is rather decent. The automatic trims can achieve an impressive top speed of 160 Kmph approximately and accelerates from 0 to 100 Kmph in close to 12.11 seconds from a standstill. Whereas, the diesel variants take around 16 seconds to break the 100 Kmph speed barrier and attains a top speed in the range of 160 to 165 Kmph, which is not bad at all.  

Engine and Performance

Editor's take : Both the engine offerings on the Scala aren’t good on paper, but even in the real world. Our pick of the lot is the diesel for its linear power delivery and low NVH.


The automaker has incorporated both petrol and diesel engines in this sedan series. The petrol variants have a 1.5-litre, XH2 engine that has the ability to displace 1498cc. It carries 4-cylinders, sixteen valves and is incorporated with an electronic fuel injection system. This dual overhead camshaft valve configuration based motor can generate a peak power of 97.64bhp at 6000rpm along with a torque output of 134Nm at 4000rpm. The powerful 1.5-litre diesel engine is based on a single overhead camshaft valve configuration. It has four cylinders that are further fitted with eight valves in it. This mill displaces 1461cc and is integrated with a common rail direct fuel injection system. The maximum power churned out by this motor is 84.8bhp at 3750rpm and generates 200Nm torque output. Both these power plants are coupled with a five speed manual transmission gear box. Meanwhile, the petrol engine is also available with an X-Tronic CVT transmission gear box. This automatic version can belt out a peak power and torque of 99.61bhp at 5600rpm and 134Nm at 4000rpm.


Editor's take : The Scala’s petrol engine is quite efficient while the K9K diesel is one o the most frugal mills that are sold in India. The K9K is certainly the pick of the lot.


As certified by the ARAI, its diesel mill can return a healthy fuel economy of 21.64 Kmpl on the expressways, which is quite good. Whereas, it comes down to around 18.5 Kmpl within the city. On the other hand, its petrol power plant can deliver a maximum mileage of 16.95 Kmpl on the bigger roads and returns around 13.5 Kmpl under city traffic conditions. Meanwhile, the automatic versions can deliver a mileage of 17.97 Kmpl and around 14 Kmpl on the highways and city roads respectively.

Power of Renault Scala

Editor's take : The power on both these motors is good and so is the delivery fairly linear. There is no sign of turbo lag in the diesel.

Its petrol motor belts out a maximum power of 97.64bhp at 6000rpm and yields a peak torque output of 134Nm at 4000rpm, which is rather good. The CVT version can generate a peak power of 99.61bhp and delivers the same torque output as the manual version. On the other hand, its commanding diesel mill has the ability to pump out a maximum power of 84.8bhp at 3750rpm. At the same time, it generates a superior torque output of 200Nm at 2000rpm, which is quite impressive.

Renault Scala Accessories

Stereo & Accessories

Editor's take : The Scala comes loaded in-dash music system, leather interiors, keyless entry, push start and stop, electrically folding ORVMs.


In order to provide best in-car entertainment to its passengers, the manufacturer has installed a music system in this sedan. It features a CD, MP3 player, AM/FM radio tuner and has four speakers, which are located in the front and rear side of the cabin. This integrated audio unit also supports auxiliary input options, which is quite good. It also has a roof mounted antenna for reception of radio signals, while the power steering wheel is mounted with audio control switches in the mid and high end trims. On the other hand, the owners of this sedan have an option to customize with a few additional aspects, which are of their requirement. Some of the interior features include steering wheel cover, black and beige carpet mat, art leather seat covers, reverse park assist, luggage mat, black as well as transparent rubber mat, illuminated scuff plates and a comfort set featuring seat cushions, neck rest and seat belt pad. The list of exterior features include mud flaps, exhaust finisher, silver car cover, blinkers on ORVMs, body side molding, wind deflector and a few other such aspects.

Braking & Handling

Editor's take : The handling characteristics of the Scala are decent, as the suspension has been tuned for better ride than handling. There is some amount of body roll, thanks to the long travel of the suspension.


The suspension and braking sedan is said to be safe and sound in every way. The front wheels have been equipped with McPherson struts, while the rear end gets a torsion beam. This system is efficient enough to absorb most of the jerks, which are usually felt while driving on Indian roads. On the brakes front, the car features disk brakes on the front and drum brakes on the rear. The responsive power steering is firm and is accompanied with a turning radius of 5.30 meters. The electronic brake distribution system together with anti lock braking system makes the braking system much more efficient. All this put together makes this sedan one of the most reliable vehicle to travel in.

Renault Scala Safety and Security

Safety & Security

Editor's take : The safety features on the Scala are the dual airbags for passive, while ABS is the active safety feature.


This latest version of sedan is equipped with quite a lot of crucial protective aspects. The company has equipped it with an advanced anti lock braking system that comes along with an electronic brake distribution system as well. Then there are dual front airbags for both the mid and top end trims, whereas the base variant only gets a driver airbag. Apart from these, it also has emergency brake assist , speed sensing auto door locks, adjustable head restraints (front and rear), rear window defroster with timer, anti pinch power window on driver-side (one touch up and down), an advanced engine immobilizer for stopping any unauthorized entry, variable intermittent front wipers with washer and smoked style headlamps. All these put together makes this sedan series, one of the most sought after and safe.

Renault Scala Wheels


The astutely carved out wheel arches of the mid and top end trims have been equipped with a classy set of 15 inch alloy wheels. These stylish rims are further covered with radial tubeless tyres of size 185/65 R15, which provides a perfect grip of the road. Whereas, the base trim has been given a set of robust 14 inch steel wheels that have been covered with trendy full wheel covers, which are equipped with similar tubeless radials of size 185/70 R14.


1. Roomy leg space with spacious interiors.

2. Attractive exterior aspects and appearance.

3. Innovative comfort features equipped in its top end trim.

4. Even the CVT trims have decent fuel economy.

5. Its diesel engine performance is very impressive.


1. Acceleration and pickup can be made better.

2. The NVH levels of its diesel engine can be reduced.

3. Initial cost of ownership can be further competitive.

4. Safety standards can be improved.

5. After sales service is not up to the mark.
