Recent Updates of Renault Scala

Renault will launch the Nissan Sunny based Scala on the 7th September in the Indian market. Interestingly, the Scala looks better than the Sunny with a revised front end and new tail lamps. It continues to use the same petrol and diesel engine though the former will get an automatic gearbox option. Diesel versions get standard alloy wheels while all versions get standard ABS

    I have driven my car RxL Diesel for 48k kms and I am amazed by the performance for power but the main USP is the fuel efficiency of 26.5kmpl on Highway with ac and 19kmpl in city with normal traffic conditions. It is truely amazing. I found no cons in the car except that the suspension is a bit hard. Read More

    I am owning Scala RXE proudly since 1 year. Overall experience is excellent. Cabin space is huge. Specially the rear leg room. Fuel efficiency is great. Some of the infotainment features this car is really lagging like music system without USB, No BT, No Remote etc....I feel side view is blocked while taking turn due to broad site panel. Read More

Review of Renault Scala

Overview

Renault’s recent success with the Duster SUV has put them in the lime-light with more and more prospective new car owners, across segments, getting to know about the French brand. Continuing on the same lines of success, the company’s 5th product for Indian after the Fluence, Koleos, Pulse and the Duster will be another high volume product that will be positioned in the Rs 6 to 9 lac bracket and as expected, it is based on the Nissan Sunny – the new Scala. In terms of looks the front end of the Scala looks very similar to the Pulse and that is not a bad thing at all. Infact, so good is the design tweak with the new grille and the huge hexagonal black insert, the Sunny in comparison looks a little bland.

The Pulse derived headlamps look great too though the side profile of the car remains unchanged. At the rear, thankfully, unlike the Pulse, changes have been done as well with tweaked tail-lamps that have a ‘C’ shaped silver insert / reflector and ofcourse the horizontal chrome garnish with the Scala graving. The interiors of the Scala remained unchanged and same as the Nissan Sunny apart from ofcourse the big Renault logo on the steering wheel. However Renault will also be offering leather seats as optional for that premium-touch. The Scala retains all the plus points of the Sunny in terms of ergonomics, quality and segment leading knee and leg room.

Top end versions get rear air blower, steering mounted controls, electronically foldable mirrors, start-stop, rear arm rests. The Renault Scala comes powered with the same engine options as the Nissan Sunny which means for petrol heads, the 1.5-litre motor with 99PS of power and 134Nm of torque does duties here. It is extremely efficient with an ARAI rating of over 16kmpl. Interestingly, Renault is also offering a segment first CVT automatic transmission with the petrol engine option. It goes without saying that the diesel will be the higher seller and comes with same 1.5-litre dCi motor as the Sunny that puts out 86PS of power and a very healthy 200Nm of torque. This is a gem of a motor and pulls very cleanly from as low as 1400rpm with minimal turbo-lag. The Nissan Sunny was always a very comfort oriented car and this one is no different. The long wheelbase aids in the overall stability and during our high speed drive on the Himalayan Expressway, the Scala remained poised and calm at triple digit speeds.

During the drive over some broken patches around Shimla, I personally found the suspension to be a tad better than that of the Sunny and it seems the good guys at Renault had played around with the suspension for extra comfort too. Round the flowing curves and corners of the Shimla highway, the Scala did prove to be a decent handler and gives it main role of comfort, this behaviour is completely acceptable. ABS is also standard across all models. Prices start at Rs 6.99 lakhs to 8.7 lakhs ex-showroom Delhi. Renault has launched the Automatic versions of the Scala sedan (petrol engine only) and announced the prices. The automatic version is around a lac more than the manual transmission and this steep premium is due to the modern technology it uses. Renault has used the patented X-Tronic transmission in the Scala in order to give the best to the Indian consumer – for example, the automatic Scala is more efficient  that its manual sibling. This technology, according to the company, helps in reducing the notorious rubber band effect that is associated with CVT transmissions. The Scala Automatic is priced at Rs 8.99 lakhs to 9.89 lakhs ex-showroom.  For a detailed analysis read below.

Interior

As expected, the interiors of the Scala remained unchanged and same as the Nissan Sunny apart from ofcourse the big Renault logo on the steering wheel. However Renault will also be offering leather seats as optional for that premium-touch. The Scala retains all the plus points of the Sunny in terms of ergonomics, quality and segment leading knee and leg room. Top end versions get rear air blower, steering mounted controls, electronically foldable mirrors, start-stop, rear arm rests etc though USB connectivity for the audio system is sorely missing here.

  • What we like

    Has lots of space and a decent features list.

  • What we dislike

    USB connectivity is missing.

Exterior

It was always a known fact that Renault would be keeping the base as the Nissan Sunny and its Mumbai based design studios tweaking the exterior design to give the car a new identity. What we saw in flesh today seemed to have made one thing clear – the overall execution to distinguish the product from the Nissan one is very good, much better than the job done with the Pulse (to distinguish it from the Nissan Micra). The front end of the Scala looks very similar to the Pulse and that is not a bad thing at all. Infact, so good is the design tweak with the new grille and the huge hexagonal black insert, the Sunny in comparison looks a little bland. The Pulse derived headlamps look great too though the side profile of the car remains unchanged. At the rear, thankfully, unlike the Pulse, changes have been done as well with tweaked tail-lamps that have a ‘C’ shaped silver insert / reflector and ofcourse the horizontal chrome garnish with the Scala graving.

  • What we like

    Loosk better than the Nissan Sunny.

  • What we dislike

    The side view remains unchanged.

Mileage Running Cost

Expect real world fuel economies of 17-19kmpl with the diesel. Renault says that as of now, the diesel will only come the 5-speed manual gearbox with no plans of the automatic transmission in the near future. In petrol expect 12  kmpl in city. Thanks to the X-Tronic transmission in the Scala automatic, it is actually more efficient than the manual varaint. We got close to 13 kmpl in our tests.

  • What we like

    Diesel has good efficiency, petrol excellent.

Comfort Suspension

The Nissan Sunny was always a very comfort oriented car and this one is no different. The long wheelbase aids in the overall stability and during our high speed drive on the Himalayan Expressway, the Scala remained poised and calm at triple digit speeds. During the drive over some broken patches around Shimla, I personally found the suspension to be a tad better than that of the Sunny and it seems the good guys at Renault had played around with the suspension for extra comfort too.

  • What we like

    Suspension is better than the Sunny.

  • What we dislike

    Ride is not class best.

Engine Performance

The Renault Scala comes powered with the same engine options as the Nissan Sunny which means for petrol heads, the 1.5-litre motor with 99PS of power and 134Nm of torque does duties here. It is extremely efficient with an ARAI rating of over 16kmpl. Interestingly, Renault is also offering a segment first CVT automatic transmission with the petrol engine option. It goes without saying that the diesel will be the higher seller and comes with same 1.5-litre dCi motor as the Sunny that puts out 86PS of power and a very healthy 200Nm of torque. This is a gem of a motor and pulls very cleanly from as low as 1400rpm with minimal turbo-lag. Once past 2500rpm, the engine becomes very strong.

  • What we like

    Diesel is smooth and has good performance.

  • What we dislike

    Petrol lacks punch.

Braking Safety

Like most Renault cars, the steering is pretty light without being too over-assisted at high speeds which means it does manage to give you constant feedback at times. Around the flowing curves and corners of the Shimla highway, the Scala did prove to be a decent handler and gives it main role of comfort, this behaviour is completely acceptable. ABS with EBD is also standard across all models. You also get dual front airbags.

  • What we like

    Easy to drive and use in city.

  • What we dislike

    Steering too light.
