What can we replace our Renault Scenic with?

We are trying to replace our "high seated" Renault Scenic with a modernish, secondhand medium sized MPV with a five-speed automatic transmission (and easy access of course). What options are realistically available?

Further, what are the practical differences between automatic and semi-automatic transmissions? No one has been able to explain satisfactorily.

Asked on by

I don't know of any with 5 speed autos. Old shape C-Max 2.0 litres were 4-speed or twin clutch Powershift. Toyota Verso Multidrive S are CVTs. The latest Scenic 1.5 diesel auto has a twin clutch autobox.

Far better than the previous model. The Grand model seats seven. Practical and versatile. Excellent crash test rating.
Enjoyable, well-equipped, versatile seven-seater. Especially good as a D-4D diesel. Five rear seats fold into the floor. Supremely safe.
