Then we discovered the new Scenic at the last Geneva Motor Show. Renault unveils its extended Grand Scenic variant, more elegant and roomy than before.
The fourth-generation Scenic has not yet entered the market as the long version we already presented. Aesthetically, it retains the same fluid stocky figure and the basic Scenic, with the identical front. The rear portion is shown in a different hand, with lights that go back to the edges of the tailgate, a bit like the new Area. 24 cm extra length over the standard model does not break the harmony of line and to speak again safe to say that the new Grand Scenic is the most elegant of large compact MPV. Besides that approximates a bit of space by its looks, with this new rear and stretched profile.
Featuring now 4.63 meters long, the new Grand Scénic is 5 cm longer than the former and dominates 3cm rival Citroën Grand C4 Picasso. It is of course still available in five versions and seven seats. The wheelbase has also increased, with now 2.80 m (+ 3.5 cm compared to the old one), as the boot volume. Announced for 718 liters in 5-seater, it offers 40 liters more than its predecessor and 14 more than the Grand C4 Picasso. This volume can even climb to 866 liters when the rear seats are developed to the maximum, the seat of the second row is sliding. Can finally add 63 liters extra storage space in the passenger compartment, including the sliding bracket (13 liters), the glove (11.5 liters) or hatches in the floor (38.5 liters).
The range of available engines includes the 1.2 Tce 115 and 130 bhp petrol and 1.5 dCi 110hp and 1.6 dCi 130 hp and 160 hp diesel. A dCi 110 Assist Hybrid variant with energy recovery during deceleration, also complete the range. Like its counterpart short, this Grand Scénic refueling equipment, including the R-Link system 2 and its 8.7-inch screen, the various Multi-Sense driving modes or head-up display.
Presented to the public at the Paris Motor Show in October, the new Grand Scénic will be marketed by the end of the year.
