enault Scala... though after intrinsic research, many report, writings and road tests etc, familiarity with the car is pretty high.

Yet it took nearly an hour to figure out a starting for this piece of writing because it was pretty difficult to think of one adjective for the Scala that describes it perfectly.

Beautiful, sexy, comfortable, classy, premium, well-mannered and it can go on... well you get the point.

Nissan Sunny, the caaaaaaaar; is also good looking, comfortable and delivers a pretty decent performance.

P.S. for Renault Scala, we are yet to know how it deals with the regular day to day scenarios but let's be more welcoming here, shall we?

Agreed, even before its launch there is lot of praise that Scala has received in comparison to its cousin, Sunny, but Renault has managed to give its upcoming, a pinch of more classiness than the older brother, in terms of looks and styling.
