Renault has launched the Scala automatic in two petrol variants, namely, Renault Scala RXL X-tronic CVT. Renault has today introduced an automatic variant of the Scala, which interestingly delivers better fuel efficiency than the Scala manual. Featuring an X-tronic Continuously Variable Transmission, the Renault Scala CVT offers a mileage of 17.97kmpl (as per ARAI test figures), which is about 1kmpl more than what the manual transmission Scala delivers.
Renault has already sold 3,000 units of the Scala since its launch in September 2012 and the Scala CVT is expected to further boost sales. But its got some tough competition to deal with like the Honda City, Maruti Suzuki SX4, Hyundai Verna and Volkswagen Vento.
