New Renault Scenic gets world premiere at Geneva

The fourth-generation model, which will be joined by a Grand version, takes design inspiration from the 2011 R-Space concept car and includes a two-tone colour scheme and new 20-inch wheels as standard.

The new Scenic also brings larger proportions with a lower roof line, longer wheelbase and shorter rear overhang.

The interior is focused on more of a cockpit design and incorporates Renault’s full-colour head-up display, an updated sliding centre console and an optional full-length panoramic glass roof.  

Features include a One Touch Folding system which can, depending on version, be operated by a tap on the R-LINK 2 8.7-inch infotainment screen or by activating a switch in the boot and automatically folds away the rear seats to provide a flat floor configuration. 

As with the previous model, the front passenger seat back of certain versions can be tipped forward to form a small table. In all versions, the two parts of the 60/40-split second-row seat slide forwards and back independently. 

Boot space for the new model increases to 572 litres with additional stowage capacity of 63 litres in the cabin.

Safety equipment will include AEBS and Pedestrian Detection as standard. 

Diesels comprise the Energy dCi 95, 110, 130 and 160, with a Hybrid Assist version of the Energy dCi 110 to be made available before the end of 2016. Petrols comprise the Energy TCe 115 and 130. Fuel economy figures haven’t been announced.

Both the Scenic and Grand Scenic will go on sale in the UK this winter.
