Renault Scenic And Grand Scenic MPVs Get Their Black Editions Too

Renault has begun taking orders for its new Scenic and Grand Scenic Black Edition models in France, with prices starting from €33,100 ($36,960) for the former and €33,700 ($37,630) for its slightly larger sibling.

The new spec is available across the range, on both petrol (TCe 140, TCe 160) as well as diesel-powered versions (Blue dCi 120, Blue dCi 150), and will arrive in French showrooms starting with June 13, 2019 – buyers will still get a choice of either a manual or an EDC dual-clutch automatic.

The Scenic Black Edition offers a “wide range of features” for just €1,800 ($2,000) more than what you’d pay for an Intens trim model. The exterior boasts 20-inch Silverstone wheels with a black gloss finish, black headlight masks and LED fog lights as standard, on both Scenic and Grand Scenic models.

Inside, there is Alcantara upholstery, silver grey top-stitching, a black headliner, aluminum pedal assembly and footrest, protective mats, heated front seats, a panoramic sunroof and blind, plus a color heads-up display.

Buyers willing to spend a little more can also equip their family-friendly MPV with Lane Keeping Assist, Easy Park Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, 20-inch Quartz diamond-cut alloy wheels, a Bose sound system and a 5-to-7 seat conversion for the larger Grand Scenic.

On a side note, those of you still interested in purchasing French MPVs should consider the possibility that models such as the Scenic and Grand Scenic will cease to exist. It was Renault boss Thierry Bollore himself who admitted that the rising popularity of SUVs is a direct threat to multi purpose vehicles.

“For the next generation, there is a question: do we just have SUVs, or do we continue to have MPVs? This question is ongoing. Today we are happy with what we are doing with Scenic, but the segment is changing from year to year. For now, we are still fulfilling our customers’ needs,” he said last year in an interview with Autocar.

    I live in Europe and I’ve only see a few of the new Scenic’s. I wonder if they’ll try even harder with the next generation to make Scenic look more like a “cool” crossover or if they’ll just give up and focus on Captur and Kadjar.

    Very well designed. They make me want one even if i hate the segment. Except for the back but not too ugly either.
