    Shown image of car design is simply superb… If Renault continue the same design, it will be the bang in this segment….
    Might Renault should concentrate on powertrain, as 1ltr engine with 64 to 69hp will not be enough for the model…. It should be atleast 1.2 ltr 76hp gives good results…..
    Expecting launch as early as possible….

    Renault should concentrate on powertrain where 1.0lt with 64 bhp will not enough to the the car…..
    It should be atleast 1.2 ltr with 76bhp….
