Renault Japan has updated its Lutecia hatchback and prices for the revised versions range from2,199,000 yen (Rs 13.06 lakh) to 2,399,000 yen (Rs 14.25 lakh).

Variants called the Intens and Zen 1.2 have gone through a makeover and the 1.2-litre petrol mill now makes 118bhp with 205Nm of torque. New gear ratios on the six-speed dual clutch auto box coupled with the start-stop feature now enables the motor to increase its efficiency while bumping up the torque figure. The already stunning looks of the Lutecia was given a pass and the interiors have been spruced up. Adoption of a redesigned seat on the Intens variant that now carries contrasting colours along with the dashboard and door pads have brightened up the cabin. The sporty steering wheel on the GT can now be seen on the Intens variant.

Power for the Zen 0.9-litre variant is made by an 897cc petrol engine that produces 90bhp and 135Nm of torque. Though the start-stop feature did not make it to this version, revised gear ratios on the five-speed manual transmission have enhanced the fuel efficiency of this variant. Renault claims that owners can enjoy the new frugal nature of this motor.
