The French Auto maker, Renault had launched Renault Fluence in the preceding year, which did an average business in the Indian Automobile Industry. The company witnessed a low sales and the reason is likely to be the high price of the sedan. Another reason that is projected for the low sales could be the inadequate features in the diesel variant of Renault Fluence. According to one of the reviews on Renault cars, the French Automobile giant is planning to roll out the facelift variant of Renault Fluence. The company is going to unveil the facelift Renault Fluence in the Paris Motor Show 2013 and the sales is probable to begin in the first quarter of 2013. The facelift version of Renault Fluence is anticipated to hit the Indian showrooms in the second half of 2013. The refreshed version of Renault Fluence has already begun its tests in Romania.
2013 Renault Fluence pictures reveal that the car has gone under some significant changes. It is speculated that the front part of the car will boast stylish headlamps along with a new grille, which looks quite different in comparison to current Renault Fluence. The bumper of 2013 Renault Fluence will also be slightly tuned, which would give an absolutely different look to the sedan. The rear end of Renault Pulse is likely to have improved tail lamps together with a new bumper. 2013 Renault Fluence features will include airbags, disc brakes, anti lock braking system, electronic brake force distribution, central locking etc. Though the company has not mentioned anything about 2013 Renault Fluence price, but it is likely to come around INR 14 lakh. Currently Renault Fluence is available in one petrol and two diesel options. The petrol variant of Renault Fluence price is tagged approximately around Rs. 15.27 lakh whereas the diesel variants come between the range of Rs. 13.60-15.20 lakh.
The biggest question that crop up in mind is will the revamped version of Renault Fluence be able to take the sales to a new height? It seems very difficult for the company because the Indian Auto market is already dominated by the recognized brands like Hyundai, Honda, Tata, Chevrolet etc. It would be interesting to see how Indian customers would react to 2013 Renault Fluence. But before the launch of the Facelift Renault Fluence, the French auto maker is scheduling to launch the much awaited SUV of this year i.e. Renault Duster, which is expected to arrive in the month of July 2012. Renault Duster price is expected to fall between the range of Rs. 8-10 lakh. I shared the eagerly awaited Renault Duster has been launched loaded with exciting features.
