Renault Scala - Elegant and Reliable
I have a top-end Diesel Scala and is driven by my family is a Tier 2 town. +ves Elegant Design : Scala has adorable cuts and curves - the French elements of design on the Japanese platform has given us a perfect blend of glitz with class. Boot Space is decent, it cozies up all passengers and can easily take 3 in the backseat. Reliability : 15 months into ownership and the only expenditure has been the regular maintenance service- which cost almost nothing. All parts, fabric and switch gear are in place and looks brand new and glossy. Engine is calm and doesn't disturb the cabin - it feels a touch slow from the accelerator response but you can see that you pick up pace very easily whether on traffic or highways. Suspension and Comfort levels are 5 star. I drive it only during my vacation visits to home, but it is incredible how the Scala adjusts to the twisties and bad roads of Kerala. With almost no stretch of long roads, Scala feels a little over-powered for the routes I drive around, but the ride is always comfortable. Yes, it wasn't the most updated mid-sized sedan , but it is priced well for the top end diesel variant. Renaults are VFM and are 5% cheaper than the corresponding Nissans. Lack of navigations, touch screen is a concern, but can always be made up for, with your mobile device. A neat buy for any family with the head member 35-40+ in age. Don't go for the outright loud looks of all too common City , buy the nicer Scala. Treat Scala as a stretch from your compact sedan budget, not as a midsize sedan in terms of pricing/features. Regards,
