2018 Renault Scenic – Renault has long been a regular in the minivan business. Space defined the sector when it arrived in the 1980s, while the Megane Scenic introduced a smaller minivan on the market when it arrived. Today, the Scenic continues, and if you want more space, the Grand Scénic is the seven-seater in the current beach car.Process is a make-or-break model, because if its inspired cross looks fail to revive the MPV’s fortunes, it may well be the last Scenic we see, as Renault focuses on crossovers like Kadjar and Koleos.
Folding the seats is easy thanks to the buttons in the boot that return the files without fuss. Renault has no seat in the standard row, and the Grand Scenic is unfortunately no exception. Although there is almost as much space as in a Citroën C4 Picasso, it is so hard to ride in that only children feel comfortable sitting there. Yet the second row moves for and back to add a bit more space for the kids.Up front, however, the Renault feels just as upscale as the competition’s game, thanks to the materials good quality and cool-looking portrait oriented 8.7- inch touch. It’s not the easiest to use, but there are a lot of features. The black border is a fingerprint magnet, but it does not look upscale when there is plenty of clean.There’s storage space around the interior including a sliding center console – useful if you have a passenger in the middle seat of the middle row, which will undoubtedly appreciate the extra space of the feet. The front seats are comfortable, though, and should be quite supportive on long trips.
As it needs to accommodate an additional Those seats, the Grand Scenic is not quite as beautiful as the Scenic, which is one of the most stylish minivans on sale. Still, the standard 20-inch wheels, flowing lines and sleek light designs give Grand Scenic a lot of flair. Only the Grand C4 Picasso can do the same for seven-seater minivans. These wheels are standard on all cars, although the Renault has not developed which should cost roughly the same as a normal set of 16 or 17 inch wheels on rival models. Unfortunately, they contribute to an unstable race, with rival Citroen being far more comfortable on the roads of the UK – and calmer on the inside as well.
The seven-seater Renault Grand Scenic will not quite match the sales of its little brother Scenic, but the two extra seats will make all the difference for many customers. We finally had the opportunity to test the car in the UK, with a 1.6-liter, 128-hp diesel engine.
It’s probably your best bet if you’re interested in buying a Grand Scenic, as a figure of 61.4mpg fuel economy is impressive for a car so focused on convenience and passenger space.
