Renault Scenic revealed

French carmaker Renault has finally revealed its latest achievement, the 2013 Renault Scenic and also the Grand Scenic. The models were actually improved in appearance and not only thanks to their new facelift versions. The French logo at the front is now bigger and it has been set against a gloss black background that contains the new grille. All the new elegant lines and high-quality materials help enhance the dynamic feel of the MPV.

If we take a look on the inside, we will be amazed with the quality of the works and of the materials. We have to admit it is perfectly worthy of the best-seller segment in Europe since 1996. To be more precise we will see that the soft curves of the dashboard now include an area devoted to multimedia and navigation. The TFT screen can be customized to display key information. For the first time on the Renault Scenic, the carmaker offered the R-Line. This includes an easy-to-reach joystick control plus a touch screen display situated in front of the driver. As expected, depending on the version, he Bose tailor-engineered sound still provides class-leading acoustic performance.

When it comes to the power plants, know that the manufacturer wanted to share the same guiding principle of the latest ENEGY. Here we have to mention reduced fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and running costs. Aside of all these, the engineers have also offered improved driving enjoyment and reliability. There are three new engines available for the Renault Scenic XMOD and for the Grand Scenic. The best of it is the new Energy TCe 130 capable of 15% improved fuel consumption.

Since the model was released, back in 1996, the manufacturer managed to sell 4.300.000 units produced at the Douai plant. The carmaker had to invest up to EUR420 million in adapting and upgrading the factory which will produce premium Renault models starting next year.
