Renault Fluence

The Fluence was the first model to out of Renault s garage last on the Renault Nissan C platform, it has the wheelbase in the segment and offers ride and handling with driving dynamics. We have reviewed the Renault Fluence, you can it here.

Initially, the diesel was available in the base E2 trim in a diesel driven market, it was to roll out the fully loaded and soon enough Renault the Fluence with the bells and the petrol offered. The Renault did get the goodies with the E4 variant but lacked the low end punch which spoilsport in city driving Well not anymore, Renault has this engine to extract 4 more horses, it may seem on paper but it makes all the difference as I out on a drive along the scenic ECR to the once French territory of

The k9k engine is one of the most versatile produced by the French manufacturer. It more than 20 cars the Nissan Renault JV globally. The k9 started its innings with the in India, it now powers the Nissan Nissan Sunny, Renault and the Renault Fluence .The dCI 110 is not a job, but a new generation engine

The new 1.5 dCI 110 engine produces 110 ps of power 240 Nm of torque. ARAI certified stands at 20.4 km to the litre. The K9K now gets a new Variable Geometry (VGT), this low inertia not only increases the power but extracts low end torque from the

The air intake path has been to derive more efficiency and at the time minimize transmission as well as emissions.

One would think that a 4PS increase in power would be noticeable, especially for such a car but its a different story once you get the wheel. In city traffic, the lag which was clearly evident in the series engine is almost The turbo kicks in much around 1700 rpm and this the car more drivable in bumper to traffic.

Overall, the only issues I had the Fluence was the lack of features in the top end and considerable turbo lag at lower Both these have addressed by Renault and this the E4 diesel variant a very buy. Priced at Rs 15.20 ex showroom Delhi, the Fluence get you noticed on the road and comes a standard 4 yrs/80,000 km warranty at no cost.

With an attractive price and a list of goodies coupled superb driving dynamics, has made a good product better.
