These are the first official images of the new Renault Scala, a compact-sized saloon aimed at the Indian market.
In exactly the same way that the Renault Pulse supermini is a re-badged version of the Nissan Micra, the Scala is a Renault-faced iteration of the Nissan Sunny, which is sold in North America as the Nissan Versa sedan.
The cosmetic makeover is limited to the Scala's new fascia that is borrowed from the Pulse, with which it shares its underpinnings, but enhanced with bespoke headlamp graphics and a chrome trimmed grille for a more upscale look, plus the new wheel designs and the different tail lamp fixtures that are connected with a chrome strip.
The new Scala is slated to go on sale in India next month with a choice of two locally built engines, a 1.5-liter four-cylinder petrol delivering 98hp (99PS) and a diesel unit with the same displacement and an output of 85hp (86PS). Both powerplants are coupled to a five-speed manual gearbox.
More details and photos of the Renault Scala are expected to be released within the next couple of weeks.
