Forget Renault, they should be keen on bringing some good nissan cars here. Nissan versa, sentra and altima would do well in india.

If only they don't consider themselves as premium players and price the cars out of reach..

The one standing next to the concept EV looks ready to kill GTO any moment.

I dare say, I dig the Koleos. I like myself some sport wagons and there's not that many to choose from (in India). GTO, did you get an expected price for the Koleos?

Don't think Fluence has power to in-Flunece,front styling is rather confused.Koleos side profile is similar to Tucson,it looks much like a facelifted and liposuction-ed Tucson.Laguna would have been a better choice but logan has already played with its image.

Renault fluence looks interior exterior good, Twizy will look like a toy car. With in big camous fine not for the road.Other cars we have to see the interiors and availability in India. How about the pricing.

I had mentioned before that this car might come to India! Should do well provided Renault positions it right.

Megane looks hot! Koleos looks Chinese!

Angry

I used to be Renault fan, but nowadays they seem to be getting overtly bling and outlandish in their designs..

Thank you GTO for the extensive coverage of the Expo! I did notice the Laguna Coupe next to the Megane. Any more pictures of that car?

Why is Renault and Nissan still so lukewarm on India? After China, the Indian Automobile market would have the biggest potential. Someone's missing the plot.

I agree, and so we may see fluence coming here, and then other models as well.They had high hopes for Logan which didnt do that well and might have taken renault off to come out with better products.Hopefully things gets better from them and offer some good products.

Looks like Renault does not seem too interested to get here by themselves. Nissan probably will be their choice for mass market appeal and Renault will launch some odd looking very expenisve cars that will not sell too well. I wish they went and got some of their serioulsy good hatches and compacts here.

Its because they stand almost non-stop through the day in the crowd in dresses made of plastic! How long can one smile after all.
