Renault Scenic Review

The latest Renault Scenic was released in 2009, sporting brand new petrol and diesel engines. But before it reentered the market with upgrades, Renault first introduced the Scenic in 1996; since then its third-generation model continues to be the forerunner in the model’s history.

Pros

The latest Renault Scenic sports several improvements to its predecessor. The new generation has a more spacious interior. The exterior is much sharper as well, delivering premium quality on all design fronts.

The most basic engine of the Scenic is a 1.5 dCi extreme; it only offers 86bhp but bears little difference from the 1.5 dCi 106bhp. Both average 12 seconds in terms of reaching a 62mph from stand still. For a driver that only requires motorway speeds and trips around town, the entry-level engine can do the job. If you want more power and speed, the Scenic is also available with a 1.9 dCi engine at 130bhp. This stronger alternative can reach 62mph after 10.9 seconds. The fastest engine is the 2.0-litre dCi that comes with a six-speed automatic or manual at 150bhp or 160bhp respectively. Both average 9 seconds in terms of its 0 to 62mph sprint.

As for petrol options, there’s the 1.6-litre at 110 bhp, but a more updated and better version would be the 1.4-litre at 130bhp. We recommend the revised engine given not just its better acceleration but also for its fuel economy. If you don’t mind getting the CVT automatic, there’s the 2.0-litre petrol at 143bhp.

The Scenic impresses the most with its agile motion. Drivers can enjoy the smoothness of its ride as they feel the precision of the steering. Its ability to turn and weave through any road condition also makes it a smart choice for long journeys. Although the Ford C-Max boasts of better road engagement, the Scenic still keeps itself more in control compared to the Citroen C4 Picasso.  The Scenic maintains stability as well despite its added weight from the dampers and assures safety via the electronic stability control on all model variations.

As previously mentioned, the latest Scenic allows for more legroom. Even rear seat occupants will have no problems settling in. The diesel engines keep quiet whatever the road condition and the cabin enjoys a peaceful atmosphere thanks to sound insulation. Expansion carries into the boot’s 522 litres of storage space. Rear seats can be adjusted to allow for more baggage. There’s also 86 litres for stowage in the cabin, along with drawers found beneath the outer rear and front seats.

Cons

In terms of alternatives, there’s also the Volkswagen Golf Plus. It has more rear passenger room and would be the smarter choice for drivers conscious of their fuel economy.

Otherwise, we see no flaw in the latest Scenic. Although the Renault brand has been infamous for reliability, the Scenic steps up to change this perception. Safety is another great guarantee of this vehicle: curtain, front, and side airbags are found all around. Plus there’s Isofix child seat mounting points that new parents and families will appreciate. If you're looking to upgrade in terms of engine, ride, and cabin, then this is the vehicle for you.

Renault Scenic

                The French multinational automobile manufacturer, Renault, created a compact multi purpose vehicle or MPV in the year 1996, which came to be called the Renault Scénic. This was created as a five door multi purpose vehicle that has a front engine, four wheel drive or front engine, front wheel drive layout. The Scénic is also called the Renault Mégane Scénic.

                The Scénic is the first car to be labeled as a compact multi purpose vehicle in the European market. The first generation called the Scéenic I was produced in the years 1996 until 2003, and it was first a concept car that was designed by the then Renault designer Anne Asensio. In 2003, the Scénic II or the second generation version of the car was released.

                The current version of the Renault Scénic is the Scénic III which was produced since 2009. In May of the same year, the Grand Scénic, a seven seater compact MPV version of the car, was produced and offered in countries like the United Kingdom. Facelift versions of the car include the Scénic RX4 and the Scénic Conquest. Sales of the Scénic in the UK began early in the year 1997, and among its competitors in the market include Fiat Multipla, Vauxhall Zafira, Nissan Almera Tino, and Citroën Xsara Picasso. It has been recognized as the European Car of the Year in 1997 and it was also called the Car of the Year in 1997 by “What Car?”.
