Renault to unveil 4th-gen SCENIC MPV at 2016 Geneva Motor Show

Article by Christian A., on February 25, 2016

Renault will unveil a new MPV, the fourth generation SCENIC, this coming March 1 at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. Spearheading the unveiling of the new SCENIC in the high-profile event will be Groupe Renault’s Chairman and CEO Carlos Ghosn and Group’s SVP of Corporate Design Laurens van den Acker.

The new SCENIC will reflect Renault’s fresh approach to MPVs, a segment that the company created. With the launching of the first iconic SCENIC back in 1996, Renault is credited as having created a legacy that the company is proud to continue with the introduction of the new SCENIC.

This fourth-generation SCENIC is set to revitalize the MPV segment and is Renault’s new vision of how a futuristic MPV should be. This new MPV will offer a panoramic view and a greatly enhanced visibility because like the newly launched ESPACE, the new SCENIC will feature a three-part windscreen.

New design improvements are introduced into the new SCENIC as well. For example, the new SCENIC has a higher ground clearance and a shortened rear overhang compared to its predecessor, the SCENIC 3.

In addition, the new MPV will exude a more solid stance, thanks to a wider track for both front and rear. In addition, distinct C-shaped head lights utilizing the LED Pure Vision technology previously-available only for higher models are featured in the new model as well, giving it a recognizable lighting signature. Unveiling of this 4th generation SCENIC will be at midday on March 1 at the highly anticipated Geneva Motor Show.

Revitalising the MPV segment

The guiding principle behind the fourth-generation SCENIC was to provide a completely fresh take on the compact MPV. For the first time, like the new Espace, the model features a three-part windscreen that provides a panoramic view and enhanced visibility.

A number of styling features give the new SCENIC a dynamic edge. Compared with the SCENIC 3, its ground clearance has been raised and the rear overhang has been shortened, while a wider track at both the front and rear provide the vehicle with a particularly solid stance.

The new SCENIC comes with a distinctive lighting signature in the form of C-shaped head lights that benefit from LED Pure Vision technology like higher-end models.

The veil will come off the new SCENIC on the Renault stand at the Geneva Motor Show at midday on March 1 with Groupe Renault’s Chairman and CEO Carlos Ghosn and SVP Corporate Design Laurens van den Acker.
