  1. Pulse is one of the best small cars out there. I have it’s diesel variant and I have thoroughly enjoyed driving it over the past two years. Initially I was apprehensive about buying it but post a test drive i was convinced. Performance wise it will never disappoint and it is not only sporty and cool but also fuel efficient and spacious as a small car.

  2. The most important factor for me to decide while buying a car in this segment is how well it drives. Sitting comfort comes second. My research has driven me to Renault Pulse. I didn’t consider it much before I went through the specifications. Offers a great value for money. Looking forward to the test drive.

  3. Has anyone tried Renault Pulse over here? I have heard good opinion but would like to know more opinions as I am not yet ready to go for Renault which is still new in India, unless the car is a good value for money and performs well in Indian conditions.

  4. Guys I have decided to go for Renault Pulse after the test drive. I also drove Grand i10 and Brio, which I think is the best looking car. But I found Pulse better in every other department. Thought I should check in if somebody wants to warn me or encourage me about my decision before I go ahead. I have two days to decide.

  5. Renault Pulse has more leg-room than this one at the back, looks better has got ABS and airbags, mileage almost as good as Grand i10 and is priced absolutely competitively, could be lesser variant wise. Definitely worth considering.

  6. pulse has a lot of potential and with the engine power of 63 bgp, ABS, EBD, better interiors it is one of the best hatchbacks in the market. it was not marketed much and i think that is why its sales are down but anybody who takes a test drive will know that it is a valu for money car and in terms of looks it is so much better than micra.

  7. So what should be the criterion to finalize a car because when I went to a Renault dealership the salesman proved on paper that it’s a better car than grand i10 and new jazz. Test drive was very impressive. Should I go ahead and get it or should I opt for grand iten for hyundai’s better service network. Pulse is certainly better priced with all those safety features.

  8. Pulse 2014 is the best hatchback with better interiors and more features. Worth every penny since it has all that one could hope for in the price range. It looks really cool.
