Renault is one of finest automaker and knows his job pretty well. In India the brand offers the very elegant sedan Renault Fluence and recently launched SUV Renault Koleos. The Fluence received an overwhelming response during the month in which it was launched but since it is a premium sedan, the sales were affected by the hike in petrol prices. The diesel variant of the same has been doing pretty much well but since the market is deviating towards CRDI diesel engine powered cars, Renault plans to introduce an upgraded version of the Fluence diesel.
To be called as Renault Fluence E4 diesel, the upgraded version is expected to be introduced in the month of November. The reason why the company wants to come up with this iteration is the fact that the ongoing diesel variants offers less features compared to its petrol sibling E4 and with this new model the company will offer many of the lacking features. To name some we have Cruise Control, rain-sensing wipers, twin zone climate control, auto adjustable headlamps, beige interiors etc..
Because of these lacking features, the diesel variants was finding it hard to stay in the competition but now that the brand is reconsidering the model, it might help in attracting more sales after its launch. Unfortunately for those of you who would expect the car to carry the same price tag it is a bad news since the manufacturer will be pricing it a little above the current variant. As per speculations it will priced around 15 Lakh rupees solely because the E4 petrol is priced at Rs. 14.40 Lakh.
