The Pulse in spite of its platform and technology rip off from the Nissan Micra still looks a lot different. However the Pulse has been smart enough to move from the fair looks which had been the downfall of the Nissan Micra to an extent. The Renault Pulse has got some bold lines and curves to appeal to both the sexes. The engine is the same 1.2-litre petrol engine which does duty on the Nissan Micra. Pulse will also feature the 1.5 dCi diesel engine that has proven its worth.
The Renault Pulse specifications come with an overall length, width and height of 3805 mm, 1665 mm and 1525 mm respectively. The wheel base of this vehicle is 2450 mm, which also creates maximum interior space.
The Pulse returns a mileage of 13.8 kmpl in the traffic and 17.3 kmpl on the highway, achieving an overall figure of 14.6 kmpl. At 6.25 lakh the top of the line RxZ is exactly Rs. 4300 cheaper than the Nissan Micra and this is where rebadged cars have an advantage over their elderly cousins.
The Renault Pulse competes with the likes of Maruti Suzuki Swift, Hyundai i20, Skoda Fabia, Fiat Grande Punto, Volkswagen Polo, Chevrolet Beat, Ford Figo and off course the Nissan Micra. The Renault Pulse comes in shades of Champagne Gold, Metallic Grey, Metallic Red, Metallic Silver, Pearl White and Solid Black.
