Renault Scenic and Grand Scenic receive Initiale Paris treatment

Article by Christian A., on June 1, 2017

When French carmaker Renault gave the Initiale Paris treatment to the Clio, Espace, Captur, and Koleos, these models never looked so great – making customers wanting more of these vehicles. Now, Renault is applying the same treatment to the Scenic and its bigger sibling, the Grand Scenic. Thus, customers could now avail from the Renault the new Scenic Initiale Paris and the Grand Scenic Initiale Paris.

This means that the Renault Scenic and the Renault Grand Scenic – in their Initiale Paris versions – will now be wrapped in the exclusive dark prune-hued metallic Amethyst Black finish and the star-pattern grille. Likewise, both the new Scenic Initiale Paris and the Grand Scenic Initiale Paris feature LED fog lamps with cornering function and ride on specific 20-inch wheels. Of course, this exclusive edition of the Scenic and the Grand Scenic will don the 'Initiale Paris' branding just below the diamond logo.

As soon as occupants open the door of either the Scenic Initiale Paris or the Grand Scenic Initiale Paris, they will be greeted by the 'Initiale Paris' sill guards. They will be welcomed by an interior that is wrapped in black or grey-patterned full-grain Nappa leather upholstery with embossed 'Initiale Paris' letterings. This full-grain Nappa leather is the same material that wraps the electrically-adjustable seats with heating and massage functions. This high-end material also wrapped the steering wheel and the gearshift lever of either the Scenic Initiale Paris or the Grand Scenic Initiale Paris. The center console and around the infotainment system will feature a specific color finish.

Bothe new Renault Scenic Initiale Paris and Grand Scenic Initiale Paris build on the Intens equipment level, but it comes with a couple of high-end features like a premium Bose audio system, Easy Park Assist and a color head-up display.

Optional features include a fixed panoramic glass sun roof, a metallic finish, more exterior colors (Pearlescent White, Honey Yellow and Amethyst Black metallic finish), Lane Keeping Assist, and two additional seats for the Grand Scenic Initiale Paris.

Renault will open the order books for the Scenic Initiale Paris and the five-seat Grand Scenic Initiale Paris on June 7, 2017. Interested customers could choose between three engines: an Energy TCe gasoline engine that provides 130 PS (128 hp); and two versions of the Energy dCi unit with power outputs of 130 PS (128 hp) and 160PS (158 hp). The 130-PS gasoline and diesel engines are mated to manual transmission while the 160-PS diesel engine is paired to a dual-clutch automatic gearbox.

SCENIC INITIALE PARIS: genuine elegance… French style

Introduction of INITIALE PARIS versions of SCENIC and Grand SCENIC.
In France, order books for SCENIC INITIALE PARIS and Grand SCENIC INITIALE PARIS open on June 7, 2017.
The two cars to go on display in showrooms across the country during the Renault network’s promotional week on September 14-18, 2017.
New INITIALE PARIS versions combine the signature’s hallmark elegance with the styling and strengths that saw the uniquely-proportioned SCENIC break new ground in its segment.
Following the introduction of INITIALE PARIS versions of ESPACE, CLIO, KOLEOS and CAPTUR, now Initial Paris, the indicator that symbolizes Renault’s high-end offering, is available in the SCENIC range. SCENIC and Grand SCENIC INITIALE PARIS will deliver an exclusive driving experience, plus the very best the brand has to offer in terms of know-how and travelling comfort.

SCENIC INITIALE PARIS and Grand SCENIC INITIALE PARIS incorporate the signature’s hallmark styling features, such as specific 20-inch wheels, a star-pattern grille, INITIALE PARIS branding beneath the Renault logo, LED ‘cornering’ fog lights and an exclusive, dark prune-hued metallic Amethyst Black finish (*).

The same refinement is to be found inside, too, thanks to INITIALE PARIS-badged chrome door sill guards and a choice of black or grey-patterned INITIALE PARIS-embossed full-grain Nappa leather upholstery. There is also full-grain Nappa leather trimming for the gear lever and steering wheel which has engraved INITIALE PARIS badging. The electrically-adjustable, massaging, heated seats are equipped with enveloping head rests, and there is a specific colour finish for the centre console that surrounds the multimedia system.

SCENIC INITIALE PARIS and Grand SCENIC INITIALE PARIS are based on the model’s INTENS equipment level which includes a long list of high-end appointments, such as Bose® audio, a colour head-up display and Easy Park Assist.

The appeal of the INITIALE PARIS signature combines harmoniously with SCENIC’s unique proportions which are highlighted by 20-inch wheels, raised ground clearance and a sleek profile emphasised by the line of the short bonnet which is extended by the model’s steeply-raked windscreen.

The public will get its first chance to see SCENIC and Grand SCENIC INITIALE PARIS from close quarters during Renault’s French network’s promotional week on September 14-18, 2017.
