The Renault Scenic has stood the test of time; nearing its 20th anniversary, it is considered one of the most versatile MPVs on the market. The exterior of the Renault Scenic is stylish, featuring the new style grill as on the new Clio with the large Renault badge taking centre stage, making the Scenic look sharp, yet practical.
The Renault Scenic comes with many engine options from a 1.2- to 1.6-litre, available in either petrol or diesel. The diesel 1.5 dCi 110 Energy engine, with stop-start technology, returns an impressive 68.9mpg and emits only 105g/km of CO2. Or if you're looking for great economy, but require more power, the 1.6 dCi 130 Energy engine will give you that extra boost, whilst still returning up to 64.2mpg and emitting a respectable 114g/km of CO2.
Inside, the Renault Scenic is well equipped, with a centrally-mounted instrument cluster and multimedia display. The entry level Dynamique Nav offers Carminat TomTom live satellite navigation, automatic parking brake and headlights, dual zone climate control, cruise control and speed limiter - all as standard. Further up the range you'll benefit from rear parking sensors and panoramic electric sunroof.
This MPV excels at being one of the most practical family cars on the market, due to the amount of space available and the flexibility to adapt this space. The Scenic has a modular layout so you can fold and unfold the seats depending on what space you require. With all five seats in place, boot space is 555 litres which expands to a huge 1,870 litres when the rear seats are removed. Plus, with a flat load lip - loading bulky items will be a breeze. The back seats slide back and forth to give you the flexibility to prioritise either passenger legroom or give you more space in the boot. There's also lots of handy storage space, including underfloor compartments in the front and rear, deep door bins and storage trays beneath the front seats.
The Scenic offers great visibility thanks to its high driving position. Safety isn't a worry as the Scenic is fitted with electronic stability control, ISOFIX child seat anchor points and six air bags as standard - resulting in a versatile and safe family car.
Overall, the Renault Scenic is a practical and stylish MPV, with plenty of space for all the family. With high levels of equipment and adaptable space, the Scenic an amazing people-carrier, set up to take whatever the family can throw at it.
