Renault Scenic Review

June 26, 2015

Design

Climb inside the Renault Scenic and it’s functional design combines a raised driving position with large windows – making for excellent visibility. To the front of the car, the 5 seats have ample head and legroom while the back seats slide forwards and backwards to either increase boot space or provide more legroom for passengers. In terms of storage, the Renault Scenic 7 seater has a smattering of handy cubbies scattered throughout the cabin – with compartments tucked away in the floor and in drawers beneath the seats. Boot space is 522 litres but extends to an accommodating 1,837 litres when the back seats are completely removed. So whether you need extra passenger space or maximum luggage capacity, the Renault Scenic works around you.

Performance & Handling

Starting the Renault Scenic’s engine lineup is the basic 1.6 litre petrol, which takes 11.7 seconds to get from 0-62mph – while the turbocharged 1.2 litre manages it in a slightly quicker 11.4 seconds. Most people will prefer a diesel engine to power their mpv – and it’s easy to see why. The dCi 110 model is the most economical of the lineup, returning 68.9mpg and emitting just 105g/km of CO2 – making annual road tax a low cost £20. The more powerful dCi 130 diesel accelerates from 0-62mph in 10.3 seconds and still manages an impressive 64.2mpg. Whichever output you opt for, running costs will remain low – which is ideal for larger families.

Features

As you’d expect from a practical family car, the Renault Scenic mpv comes with plenty of kit – with even the basic model getting cruise control, keyless entry, alloy wheels, air-conditioning, automatic headlights and wipers and Bluetooth connection. For added family-friendly features, buyers should opt for the Dynamique Nav model – which adds an illuminated vanity mirror, Sat Nav system, 12v boot sockets and rear blinds for passenger privacy. The Renault Scenic also comes with a 4 year warranty as standard – meaning you can head off on long journeys with your family without worrying about roadside assistance.
