Renault's Grand SCENICexceeds the expectations of an MPV by delivering style and driving enjoyment as well as plenty of space. The model follows Renault's sophisticated design approach and is fitted with capable, powerful engines.
A modular layout throughout the cabin enables you to fold and slide the seats to create an arrangement that suits any particular journey. When only the third row is folded away you can carry up to 722 litres of luggage; tumbling the second row forward creates a vast load area. Underfloor and centre console storage plus map pockets let you keep important items close to hand.
Meanwhile the Bluetooth interface allows you to take hands-free calls for added safety. There are also USB and AUX connections so you can play music from an external device. The optional BOSE+ pack brings Renault's R-Link Evolution multimedia system to the cabin as well as a rear parking camera with front and rear sensors.
The engine options offered with the Grand Scénic are suited to everyday journeys as well as longer trips. When the car is fully loaded with luggage and six passengers the refined 110hp dCi diesel makes sure efficiency isn't compromised. At its peak the unit returns 68.9mpg combined. The 130hp dCi and 130hp TCe petrol accelerate responsively, producing 320Nm and 205Nm of torque respectively. A new EDC automatic gearbox features in certain Grand Scénic models. It shifts up through the gears smoothly but can be overridden via flick-shift to put you in full control.
As you savour each satisfying drive, you can be sure that it is prepared for testing situations. Electronic Stability Control (ESC) constantly monitors the car's performance and makes adjustments to the output to correct dangerous oversteer or understeer. Hill Start Assist holds the vehicle still as you pull away on an incline, and cruise control with speed limiter adds convenience on longer journeys.
There are eight airbags inside the MPV to protect you in the event of a collision as well as ISOFIX anchor points to securely hold infant seats. The intuitive Grand Scénic also has active emergency braking with pedestrian detection in order to help you avoid dangerous situations. Even tiredness on long motorway trips will not be an issue now, with tiredness detection now a feature on this brilliant car. in addition to these brilliant features, there's more; if you leave your lane without noticing, the Grand Scénic can detect traffic lane markings and return you to your lane if required.
