Geneva Motor Show 2016: Renault unveils new SCENIC compact MPV


Renault has unveiled the all new SCENIC along with the new MEGANE state and the ZOE SWISS edition at the Geneva motor show 2016.

The new version of SCENIC compact MPV comes 20 years after the first generation of SCENIC MPV was introduced by Renault back in 1996.

The new SCENIC is a modern, assertive MPV with driving enjoyment and the comfort whilst travelling. The new design of the Renault SCENIC comes with 20-inch wheels across the range; a headturning two-tone colour scheme; and a One Touch Folding system for the rear seats.

In addition to a comprehensive list of other driving aids, the new SCENIC is the only compact MPV to feature AEBS (Active Emergency Braking System) with Pedestrian Detection as standard equipment.

The new SCENIC also packs features more usually associated with the next segment up, such as  MULTI-SENSE technology, R-LINK 2 complete with an 8.7-inch screen and a colour head-up display.

The fourth generation of the model will also be available with an electrified Hybrid Assist diesel powertrain.

The new Grand SCENIC will be revealed before the summer and both cars will go on sale in Europe before the end of the year, according to Renault press release.

Meanwhile, The Geneva Motor Show also saw Renault present the new MEGANE Estate and the new MEGANE Estate GT, just two months after the launch of the model’s hatchback, GT and GT Line versions.

This version will be marketed under different names across Europe, according to Renault press release.
