Renault updates Scenic MPV for 2012

The new Renault Scenic gets an updated front end to include new lights, a new grille and some chrome highlights.

Other improvements to the compact MPV include two new engines, technology, exterior styling and interior trim.

The Scenic’s new exterior styling has been revised to look more modern and engaging, according to the manufacturer as it tries to reach the lofty standards of the new Ford C-Max.

This includes new features for the outside including wheel trims and alloy’s, a more horizontal front end and typically elaborately-monikered new body colours: Grenat Red and Majorelle Blue.

The Scenic’s new interior has two new trims which include a new beige trim plus a dark charcoal trim, each offering different unique equipment specifications.

As well as a range of fabric upholsteries there is also a new leather upholstery option. Other high quality interior features are a Bose audio system and a TomTom navigation system.

The two new engines offered are a 4.1-litre dCi 110 diesel and a 4.4-litre dCi 130 diesel, which are more efficient than ever. The new 4.1-litre diesel returns CO2 emissions of just 105g/km and the 4.4-litre diesel returns 114g/km.

New technology features for the Renault Scenic include a new Visio System which assists driver’s vigilance at night time thanks to two key functions; the Scenic is of the first Renault models to feature this. It also includes hill start assist, motorway-mode indicators and an automatic headlight function.

Renault vehicles are available from Perry’s Aylesbury dealership.
