Renault unveils UK pricing and specs for 2013 Scénic range

Article by Anita Panait, on June 20, 2013

Renault has released the UK pricing and specs of its third-generation Scénic range, including the new Scénic XMOD, which were unveiled at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. The Renault Scénic will have a starting price of £17,955. The XMOD variant, meanwhile, will be priced similarly as the equivalent standard Scénic, despite having enhanced styling and a higher equipment level.

Renault has so far sold over 4.3 million Scénics since its initial launch in 1996, making the model considered by many as the benchmark MPV. Renault is tapping the trend for off-road-look inspired cars, as it has already done in the past.

Renault most recently sold the Conquest special edition of the five-seat Scénic. Before the Scénic Conquest, Renault also offered the RX4 that boasted of full off-road 4x4 capability.

Renault now has the vehicle products that would allow it to cover almost every sector of the highly competitive C segment -- five-seat Scénic, seven-seat Grand Scénic, Twingo, Clio, Captur and ZOE.

The Scénic and the Grand Scénic each carries Renault’s new design identity. In term of looks, the most notable changes to the Scénic range could be found on front – a refreshed face. For instance, the logo at the model’s front is now bigger and set against a black background that highlights the new grille.

Further enhancing the Scénic’s dynamic and family-oriented feel are its elegant lines and high-quality materials.

The Scénic XMOD, which is crossover-inspired, carries a starting price of £17,955 and comes in two trim levels -- Expression+ and Dynamique TomTom. The face-lifted Scénic and Grand Scénics in Dynamique TomTom trim have starting prices of £19,155 and £20,355, respectively.

The new Renault Scenic proclaims a new attitude to compact MPVs. Because of its compact shapes, strong lines, distinct rear lighting, and athletic front-ends, inspired by the Renault Mégane Coupé, the Scenic projects a feeling of athletic vibrancy more normally associated with saloon cars.

Renault Scenic's stylish features blend flowing and crisp outlines. Its vibrant attraction is emphasised by its three-sectioned grille which, like the Mégane Coupé, is founded on a central intake integrating a black crossbar, bordered by two scoops in the satin-finished chrome trim. The scoops’ lines extend to the headlights, giving the Scenic's front incontrovertible character.

The fire-like lines under the headlamps carries on as the character line sweep back to emphasise the design’s vibrant look, a sense reinforced by the dipping roofline and steep, raked rear windscreen. The two-part, boomerang rear lights are like those on the new Grand Scenic. But, they do not sweep forward; instead, they turn inward to the rear, a detail exclusive to the Scenic.

The Renault Scenic projects an undeniable sense of sturdiness with the curving of its front wings and rear sides. Broad front and rear tracks (1,54 5mm front; 1,547 mm back) guarantee that the Scenic is positioned firmly on the road with intrinsic steadiness. Its dimensions, waistline, and broad door panels also communicate a supportive, protective sensation.
