Pulse 2012-2014 Petrol RxL Review

Renault Pulse is the third model by Renault in the Indian market. After Renault ceased the JV with Mahindra, Renault has prepared an aggressive strategy to establish itself in the much competitive car market. In an effort to emerge as an independent identity in the country, the French auto biggie came with Renault Fluence and lately brought into fore the extremely pricey SUV - Renault Koleos. Renault India wants to extend its reach in every car segment. Renault Pulse at present is available in the Indian market in 7 different variants both in petrol and diesel option.  The petrol variant includes the Renault Pulse RxE, Rxl and RxZ while the diesel variant includes the Renault Pulse RxL, RxL Optional, RxZ and RxZ Optional. The Renault Pulse was first unveiled in 2011 at a grand event of Formula 1 racing in Noida, but the car was launched at the 2012 Delhi Auto Expo.
