Design and interior practicality

Renault Scenic

The new Scenic family has received a new look with a lower roofline, longer wheelbase and shorter rear overhang than previous models; offering a sportier appearance that shares strong influences from the Kadjar SUV.

It’s less a MPV and more family-focused SUV crossover where all the models will get large 20inch alloy wheels. Both the Scenic and Grand Scenic models look very similar apart from rear larger light clusters and a re-profiled tailgate window.

Renault offers two choices where people can choose their car based on their personal needs; this choice is between the five seater Scenic and seven seater Grand Scenic.

The Grand Scenic offers a one touch button to fold the seats for a flat floor for loading.
