The Renault Scala has gone Travelogue, yet again. Renault first introduced the Scala Travelogue Edition in early 2013, on the top end variants of the sedan. Life seems to have come a full circle for the Scala as the Travelogue Edition is back, this time around with more variants to boot. The Travelogue Edition is now available on the RxL, RxL CVT and RxZ CVT petrol models, and the RxL and RxL Diesel models of the Scala.
The Travelogue Edition consists of the following changes and additional equipment on the Scala sedan:
- A smart, contrast decal that runs across the flanks of the car
- Wing mirrors with integrated turn indicators
- Chromed muffler cutter
- Touchscreen satellite navigation
- Bluetooth connectivity
- Illuminated scuff plates
- Sun blind for the rear windscreen
- RxL Petrol – 8.48 lakh rupees
- RxL CVT Petrol – 9.61 lakh rupees
- RxZ CVT Petrol – 10.51 lakh rupees
- RxL Diesel – 9.31 lakh rupees
- RxZ CVT Diesel – 10.20 lakh rupees
The Scala Petrol is powered by a 1.5 liter-4 cylinder, HR15DE petrol engine that outputs 99 Bhp-134 Nm. This engine is sold with two gearbox options – a 5 speed manual and a CVT automatic. The Scala Diesel is powered by a 1.5 liter K9K turbocharged engine that outputs 84 Bhp and 200 Nm. The diesel motor of the Scala gets a 5 speed manual gearbox as standard fare.
The Renault Scala C-Segment sedan is a badge engineered version of the Nissan Sunny. However, the Scala isn’t half as successful as the Sunny, which itself is a tepid seller. The Scala retains the strong suits of the Sunny, which include the fuel efficient diesel motor and the spacious rear seat. The Travelogue Edition for the Scala is a move by Renault to perk up sales.
