Pros : Comfort, Looks, Mileage, Pricing

Cons : Slightly Under powered, Black Interiors


Look and Style Looks absolutely stunning perhaps the best in its class. Whenever you drive it will have a road presence. Colors option available are also good. Like Black Grey White Blue Biege  Comfort Comfort is great thanks to its good suspension . Its delight to sit in the rear seat . Since the suspension is well tuned you wont feel much of the sppedbrakers and bumpers . Also you wont feel in potholes also. Legroom is awesome for front and rear passengers. Lots of space inside Pickup Well pickup is fairly OK. Need to wait till 2000rpm . After that its delight. The car cruises along. Ride quality is very good. Steering is light at low speeds so can turn around easily.  Mileage I travel around 80km/day in Mumbai and 70% of its part is highway and 30% of its part is city drive. In the end of 80km that to all time AC on I am getting aroudn 15-16 mileage. Its definitely a fuel efficient car. Best in class mileage for sure! Best Features Well I like the safety features of the car very much it has SRP Airbags ESP etc. Also if you forget to lock all your dorrs and start driving the car after the speed of 10 it will automatically close all the doors. The display of speedometer is awesome. better than Honda Civic. Needs to improve Well in my edition since it has Black interiors so if not completely Biege it should be Black-Biege interiors. Also some importnat things are missing in my model is rear parking sensors , bluetooth , usb . That is much needed in a car like this . So you need to buy these accessories and safety features. You can also seperately put Biege/White seat covers so that it feel less dark inside. Overall Experience According to me it is the best chauffer driven car like Toyota Corolla Altis. Overall after compairing this car with Toyota Corolla Altis , Chevrolet Cruze , Volkswagen Jetta , Skoda Laura [All Diesel] the reason for buying Renault Fluence Advantage Edition was simple. My budget was around 14-15L Toyota Corolla Altis :- Only 88PS of Power and 1.4L Engine and base variant didnt had important fearues Airbags , Music Player , Central locking etc as compared to Fluence Advantage Edition has 106PS of Power and 1.5L dCI engine. The next best available variant was not in my budget as it went as high as 16.5+L Chevrolet Cruze :- Ground Clearance is 165mm so your car can touch speedbrakers. Also Fluence Launched in 2011 in India and cruze launched in 2008 in India so its bit old. From years Cruze have made slight changes only. Also its base variant in Mumbai OnRoad 16.0+L so overpriced for me. Volkswagen Jetta :- Ground Clearance problem a lot as it is just 139mm. Its gonna hit every speeedbraker. Also the base Diesel Variant is around 17.5+L so its was not in my budget Skoda Laura :- Ground Clearance is 164mm which is low. Also skoda parts is very costly . Also this was also in my buget as its base variant diesel is 17+L. In this price range there is also Honda Civic which is petrol and my daily running is more so not good for me. You can got for Honda Civic is your running is less and can afford its fuel efficiency (9-10[real life]) mileage and also caurrent increase in petrol prices. If this things is not a problem for you then Honda Civic is better than Renault Fluence Petrol

    Hi Chirag, How expensive are the Spare Parts as compared to Maruti? How much are the expenses on major and regular servicing? Are you satisfied with Renault Post Sale Services/ Performance
