About RENAULT PULSE

Renault had introduced the Pulse in 2012, and since then the French manufacturer has been pushing its entry-level product. The Pulse looks modern and stylish with a front grille with chrome and the pulled back headlamps add more glam to it. The redesigned front fog lamps gel well with the combination. The alloy wheels are stylish.

Pulse's interior design was always ergonomically designed and the facelift only gets some cosmetic upgrades. The centre console now has a piano black finish with a new rectangular design air-con vents and a new music system too, which now has USB and Bluetooth connectivity. The new seat fabric and new trims for your door pad. The space in the Pulse is good enough to comfortably seat four large adults without any squeeze.

Renault vehicles always had decent plastic quality and good fit and finish, and Pulse is no different. The quality doesn't just look good, but even feels nice when you touch it. Even the indicator and wiper stalks are light and easy to use.

To increase the comfort for the driver, the Pulse now gets driver's seat height adjustment, which makes it easy to make fine adjustments too. There is power steering, power windows and climate control for maximum comfort for the occupants. iKey (keyless entry and push start-stop), electrically folding mirror and adjustment too, steering mounted audio controls, Bluetooth connectivity and USB connection for audio.

Renault is offering two engines on the Pulse, 1.2 litre petrol and 1.5 litre diesel. The petrol engine churns out about 75 bhp of power and this mill is offered with a five-speed manual and now even a CVT box. The diesel engine on offer is the K9K that powers several Renault and Nissan cars. This engine produces about 65 bhp of power and is highly refined.

Our Verdict

A slightly more affordable vehicle, the Renault Pulse offers a decent quality of ride and mileage. If you are on a tight budget and not too keen on features offered and just looking at the practical point of view, then go for the Pulse. If you are willing to spend a few extra bucks then there are other cars out there with better features and comforts. Overall, this is a value for money car which is simple and does not have added features or a powerful engine. The main aim is viability and economic value.
