The Renault Scala Travelogue Edition has been relaunched in the Indian market. The French carmaker feels that the introduction of a special variant with some additional goodies will help spur the sales of a poorly-performing car.
True, the Renault Scala has been a total dud in terms of sales. About a year back, the Renault Scala Travelogue Edition had been introduced on the top-end diesel variant of the Scala. Now, the manufacturer has launched it for all the trim levels on both the Petrol and Diesel options of the Scala.
Here are the prices of the Renault Scala Travelogue Edition, ex-Showroom Delhi :
- RxL Petrol – Rs 8.48 lakh
- RxL CVT Petrol – Rs 9.61 lakh
- RxZ CVT Petrol – Rs 10.51 lakh
- RxL Diesel – Rs 9.31 lakh
- RxZ Diesel – Rs 10.20 lakh
To differentiate itself from the standard Renault Scala, the Renault Scala Travelogue Edition gets a contrasting strip running across its body. It begins from the headlamps of the car, and runs all the way across to the rear. Another visual addition is n exhaust tip made up of chrome. Apart from these, the car also gets some feature additioms on the interiors. These include :
- Integrated Multimedia Navigation System
- Bluetooth Connectivity
- Illuminated Scuff Plates
- Rear Sun Shade
However, one won’t find any mechanical changes on the Renault Scala Travelogue Edition.Beneath the hood of the petrol variant lies a 1.5-litre 4-cylinder engine that produces 97 bhp of power and 134 Nm of torque. This could be mated to either a 5-Speed manual transmission or a CVT. The diesel variant is pushed forward by a 1.5 litre 4-cylinder dCi powerplant. It can churn out 84.8 bhp of power and a massive 200 Nm of torque. Both the engines are economical, with the petrol returning figures of about 17 km/l on the manual variant. The diesel offers even better figures of about 21 km/l.
