It's been over 20 years since the Renault Scenic first appeared and changed the family car forever and now, with fourth generation Scenic, Renault is ready to shake things up again. Offering stunningly seductive styling and the latest in-car technology without compromising the practicality, space and user-friendliness that the Scenic is famous for, the All-New Scenic will make offers everything a modern family wants from a car.
With styling based on the R-Space concept car the new Scenic offers a sense of style and attention to detail not previously seen on this type of car. Taking inspiration from SUV crossovers, the new Scenic offers a longer wheelbase, wider stance and raised ride height compared to its predecessor. The Scenic is also available with two-tone paintwork – another unique feature in the class - to help you stand out from the crowd.
The steeply raked windscreen and short bonnet give the Scenic an elegant shape while the three-part windscreen, a feature taken from the Renault Espace, creates a panoramic view while reducing blind spots.
The most striking feature of the new Scenic’s design are its 20-inch wheels which are standard across the range. However, these large wheels do not result in a harsh ride as the tyre sidewalls are taller than those found on most 17- or 18-inch tyres. Finally, the wheels can be customised with a range of inserts to create a unique look.
When designing the All-New Scenic, Renault didn’t forget the car’s reputation for practicality and have created one of the most practical cars in its class.
New Scenic features One Touch Folding rear seats allowing the three rear seats to be folded at the touch of one button (either from the boot or from the R-Link screen in the front of the car. Doing so reveals a large, flat load area while the lack of a load lip makes loading large, bulky items simple.The new Scenic's boot is one of the largets in the class at 572 litres with all seats in place.
There are also many touches throughout the cabin that increase the Scenic's practicality still further. There is an additional 38.5 litres of storage space in total located throughout the cabin, including in the sliding centre console. In the back, you will find folding tray tables and integrated sun blinds built into the doors to make travelling in the rear of the Scenic a very pleasant experience.
The New Scenic features the very latest in-car technology to enhance both safety, driving pleasure and passenger comfort.
Renault’s R-Link multimedia system, available with an 8.7” portrait display – the largest screen in this class of car, controls many of the car’s systems and provides TomTom satellite navigation with LIVE Services (charges may apply). From 2017 the functionality of R-Link will be further enhanced with the addition of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality.
New Scenic comes equipped with Multi-sense technology allowing the driver to select from 5 different driving settings – neutral, sport, comfort, perso and eco – to tailor the driving experience to conditions as well as the driver’s mood.
The new Scenic also features a range of safety technology including, but not limited to, Adaptive Cruise Control, Active Emergency Braking (including pedestrian detection), Lane Departure Warning Traffic Sign Recognition and Fatigue Alert. Euro NCAP has awarded the new Scenic 5-stars for passive safety which looks at the structural safety of the car along with equipment, such as airbags, that protect passengers in the event of an unavoidable collision.
Whatever your driving style or the kind of driving you do, with a choice of four diesel and two petrol engines, the new Scenic features an engine to suit your needs.
Available in either 115PS or 130PS power outputs the new Scenic’s turbo charged petrol engines offer responsive performance a low engine speeds, quiet and refined progress as well as low fuel consumption with both engines offering 48.7mpg on the combined cycle.
The diesel engine options available include the dCi 110, dCi 130 and dCi 160. All diesel engine come fitted with a 6-speed manual gearbox while the dCi 110 and dCi 160 versions can be specified with a 6-speed EDC automatic gearbox. Emissions from the standard diesel engines in the Scenic start from as low as 100g/km CO2 while fuel consumption starts from only 72.4mpg on the combined cycle.
The dCi 110 engine is also available with Renault's Hybrid-Assist technology. This improves emissions by between 8 and 10% while fuel economy on the combined cycle improves from 72mpg to 80mpg when compared to the standard dCi 110 engine while also boosting torque under certain conditions. This is achieved by harvesting energy usually lost when braking and storing it in a 48V battery which can be used to power the car’s electrical systems and power a 10kW motor to assist the diesel engine.
