New Grand Scenic Expands Renault’s MPV Range

Carrying a more crossover-like design, first seen on the Espace and then on the Scenic, Renault has lifted the veils off the new generation Grand Scenic.

The compact people carrier is offered in both five- and seven-seat versions and has grown substantially compared to the model it replaces, becoming 75 mm longer, 20 mm wider and 15 mm taller, riding on a 35 mm longer wheelbase, gaining an additional 30 mm of ground clearance and an extra 40 liters of boot space in the five-seat variant.

Facilitating the load and increasing its practicality is a One Touch Folding Seat function, available at the touch of a button or a tap of the touchscreen, which allows the rear seats to be folded automatically to obtain a flat floor.

Some of the tech present across the range, available as standard or at an extra cost, depending on the selected trim, is the R-Link 2 infotainment system, working together with an 8.7-inch display, full-color head-up display, Bose surround sound system and the list also counts adaptive cruise control, Active Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Warning, Safe Distance Warning, Traffic Sight Recognition with Over Speed Prevention, Blind Spot Warning, rearview camera, front, rear and side parking sensors and Easy Park Assist.

Riding on the CMF (Common Module Family) platform, also used on the Megane, Kadjar, Espace and Talisman, the all-new Renault Grand Scenic sits on standard 20-inch wheels. The engine lineup includes two petrol burners, the TCe 115 and TCe 130, and three diesels, the dCi 110, dCi 130 and dCi 160; the list also counts an electrified Hybrid Assist powertrain, the dCi 110, offered with a six-speed manual gearbox only. Full pricing list will be announced before the end of the year, when the new compact MPV will go on sale.

    I wonder who will still buy the Espace (looks pretty much the same)
    but I’m also worried, that ‘long’ version can’t carry a fullsize bicycle apparently 🙂

      The Espace is more upmarket, and also bigger.
