Renault India confirms Scala for India - launch by Diwali 2012

Renault plans to introduce its own version of the Nissan Sunny by Diwali of 2012. The re-badged saloon will be called the Scala, and will be mechanically identical to the Sunny. Which means that the Scala should come with the same 1.5-litre 97.6bhp motor that powers the Sunny, and also a K9K Diesel engine which will be a 1.5L 85 bhp engine.

The above said car is based on the same strategy which was adopted by Renault during launch of Renault Pulse, which is based on Nissan's Micra. Just like the Pulse, the Scala is expected to come with some cosmetic changes to give it a Renault identity and distinguish it from its Japanese sibling. However, these changes are likely to be minor, limited only to parts such as the bumper and grille.

Keeping with brand positioning within the Renault-Nissan Alliance, the Scala is expected to be priced marginally higher than the Sunny.
