Vehicles affected are equipped after sale with a tow bar ref. The Phase 2 allowed the Scénic to be separate from the Mégane and its predecessor by introducing improvements, such as a storage compartment on the dashboard, and a separate opening rear window on the tailgate. The kinked rear windowline and raised 'running board' graphic at the base of the doors give the side profile plenty of wedge, while a chromed hoop running along the A-pillar and entire roofline provides an elegantly arcing top hat to the Scenic. Gone is the upright, bulbous design of the old car, replaced by a new face inspired by the Kadjar crossover and a rakish windscreen angle. For drivers wanting a more airy cabin, part of the centre console can be opened, while a full-length fixed panoramic roof extends the view to the outside world. For example, it has a serial security system to recognize pedestrians from 7 to 60 kilometers per hour , tiredness detector, adaptive cruise control and reverse camera.
The boot space can also be extended with a sliding rear bench. It integrates on all trims since 2006. This gives us to know that the engineers did not want to leave anything to chance. Permanent revolution was the way we used to do it, and if that had worked I would have stuck to it. Compared to its predecessor, the new Scenic interior is considerably more modern. In the more severe side pole impact, the car provided good protection to all body regions except the chest, protection of which was adequate.
Renault Scenic offers three Isofix anchorages for three child seats. We have learnt from our mistakes. Agree with my fellow contributors: this is very nice looking, particularly given all the practical requirements it needs to meet. The centre console can be slid into two positions, directly beneath the touch screen or slid rearwards to free up space between driver and passenger. Among the first replied Citroen with Xsara Picasso and Opel with Zafira. The luggage compartment is with basic 572 liters large enough.
Hence why the new Scenic, another world debut at the , will blend aspects of the two genres. Renault says it wants the Scenic to appeal to drivers who want both style and practicality in their car, and a wide window of customisation is offered to cater for different tastes. French designers have done it again, managing to turn the boring Renault Scenic into a sporty-looking car for 2016, as seen at the Geneva Motor Show. From this perspective, Renault has done exemplary work. After 20 years Renault represents the fourth generation Scenic.
With the exception of the basic version it is equipped with two digital displays. To our eye, the newcomer looks great, and it gives the futuristic a run for its money on design. Interior A fourth generation Scénic was unveiled at the 2016. Slide the rear seats forward and you get up to 720 litres, while the Grand Scenic is bigger still. The dash layout is similar to that of the new Mégane, which is unsurprising given that the cars share the same platform. Neat touches include rear seats that fold electrically from a panel in the boot, or you can operate them via the touchscreen on the dash.
Power is provided by six diesel engines and two gasoline units in both 6-speed manual and 7-speed automatic gearboxes. Renault claims that the car has a lot of additional storage with a total capacity of 63 liters. Quality is excellent, the seats both look and feel great while the rearmost pair of chairs offer near enough adult space — you can have the car with just five, if you like. The tyre has also be developed to provide a good ride. The system is a fast and user-friendly, because the trunk is rapidly increased with only one move.
The dCi 110 engine will also have a hybrid option Hybrid Assist: it is a combination of an electric generator and a 48-volt battery, which generate electricity during braking. New Scenic 2016 is powered by engines already known from with which it shares the overall design of the vehicle. But it is true that you can sit quite well in the middle, because the seat is clearly marked and well shaped, and also due to the flat bottom. A six-speed dual-clutch automatic is available with the mid-spec 108bhp dCi engine, while a seven-speed dual-clutch auto is exclusively available with the most potent diesel. The sliding centre console has evolved so as to cater to the new requirements of both front and rear passengers, providing up to 13 litres of storage capacity.
New 2016 Renault Scenic: the facts The new look, supervised by Renault design chief Laurens van den Acker, undoubtedly takes many cues from , and features the now-familiar prominent Renault diamond on the nose. It became the 1997 on its launch in November 1996. A speed assistance system recognises the speed limit and allows the driver to set the limiter to that speed. It is clear that 2016 Renault Scenic walked along the same path as his larger brother Espace. How practical is the new Scenic? Available in versions with five or seven seats picture.
Renault underestimated the market demand that the Scénic would have — predicting that it would be a niche model with only 450 produced a day. The electric motor then helps to improve the performance of the diesel engine. Pricing for the new engine in the Scénic line-up starts from £22,005 on-the-road. Another small improvement with the Scénic were the rear head restraints, which were fixed over the back of the seat rather than being upright. Even stripping a rear seat flat floor is easy, because it gets dropped on the command switch. As seen in Espace this line resembles to an aircraft.
