Renault showcases Duster SUV and Pulse hatchback at Auto Expo

Renault India has officially launched the new Renault Pulse at the 2012 Auto Expo in New Delhi with a starting price of Rs 5.77 lakh for the base variant RxL. The RxZ variant has been priced at Rs 6.25 lakh. The Renault Pulse will compete with the Maruti Suzuki Swift and the Skoda Fabia.

Another major attraction at their stand is the Duster small SUV. The Duster comes to us from Dacia, the same brand that brought us the Logan/Verito. In fact, it's based on the Logan platform. While it's not an all-out off-roader, it is rugged. Only the two-wheel-drive version will be launched here in the middle of next year.

There will be three engine choices, a 1.6-litre petrol making 106 bhp and a 1.5-litre diesel in 90bhp and 107bhp guises. Apart from that, there's also a top-end variant of the Fluence that has been launched recently.The diesel fluence always drew flack for its lack of features and this top-end variant looks to solve that problem. It now comes with all the features that are available on the petrol variant except the CVT gearbox.
