How does this hatchback perform on the roads?
By: Mahesh on 31 march 2015
This car is available in both petrol and diesel variants. The diesel trims are equipped with a 1.5-litre, four cylinders, K9K diesel motor, which is attached to a 5-speed manual transmission gearbox. It allows the vehicle to accelerate from 0 to 100 Kmph mark in 14.5 seconds and it can reach a top speed of 160 Kmph. The petrol trims on the other hand, are equipped with a 1.2-litre mill takes about 15 to 16 seconds to cross the 100 Kmph speed barrier.
Indian roads are one of the most challenging roads for cars all around the globe. According to me car with good ground clearance, efficient suspension system and efficient steering system is the car to own. To start i would like to say that the Renault Pulse comes with efficient suspension system which also provides good ground clearance and Renault's all time favorite electronic steering unit is also present which works perfectly with the user commands and then there is fuel efficient engine under the hood which helps in attracting Indian buyers.
Renault Pulse entry is very challenging and establishes the brand, hatchback being the third model of the year. Renault Pulse and Nissan Micra look alike. The pulse is power-driven by 1.5L diesel and 1.2L petrol engines. This car is very impressive on urban roads. Thanks to the suspensions that it absorbs tough and bad sections of the road. The steering is light and gives decent performance at city and highways.
great power, crisp acceleration, feather light steering makes it a fun to drive car...suspension settings little hard but good cornering

Its been a while I have bought the car but I didn’t liked the car. Its all right when you will be on the rear seats you can make yourself feel comfortable but at the same time when you have to drive the car you will not feel comfortable. Mostly I will be allocated to the rear seat but sometimes it happens like when yiu hve to drive it as well so it doesn’t feel very good while driving.
I am also agreeing with the above statement, it’s cumbersome to drive the car. I feel it does not have enough power and I find the driving seat sometimes uncomfortable. The looks are great and I think it is incredible from the outside but Interior quality could have been better. The Hatchback performs well over the roads but as its been said in above answer its cumbersome to drive sometimes.
