It’s Official: New Renault Scenic Coming To Geneva

Renault will celebrate its compact MPV’s 20th anniversary by introducing a new generation in early March at the Geneva Motor Show.

The new Scenic, which was previewed by the R-Space Concept in 2011, will feature an updated exterior design, with similar headlights and grille mirroring the front fascia of the rest models in Renault’s line up like the Megane and the Talisman.

A more raked windscreen, narrower greenhouse and lower and shorter bonnet, as previous spy shots revealed, and it a curvy rear end finish off the restyled bodywork.

Inside, it is expected to draw cues from the brand’s latest models, such as a vertically mounted touchscreen serving as command center. Last, but not least, Renault will improve the quality of materials used throughout the cabin.

Technical info available states that the new Scenic will ride on the scalable CMF platform that underpins the Megane and Kadjar as well as the Nissan Qashqai. The engine lineup will also be borrowed from Renault’s compact hatchback, as will the manual and dual clutch automatic transmissions.
