Renault Scenic (2016–2019)

Model History

March 2016

New Renault Scenic launched

The front seats copy the structure of those seen inside the new Espace (including dual-density foam). Meanwhile, the massaging, heated seats of the model’s higher-end versions benefit from eight-way electric adjustment. Electric lumbar support is also available for high-end versions.

4,406mm long x 1,865mm wide x 1,653mm high on a 2,734mm wheelbase with 20 inch wheels and 195/55 R20 tyres.

The One Touch Folding system, operated, depending on version, by a tap on the R-LINK 2 screen or by activating a switch in the boot, automatically folds away the rear seats to provide a flat floor configuration; providing easy access to an optimised carrying space. The front passenger seat back of certain versions can be tipped forward to form a small table.

In all versions, the two parts of the 60/40-split second-row seat slide fore and aft independently. The sliding centre console has evolved so as to cater to the new requirements of both front and rear passengers, providing up to 13 litres of storage capacity.

The loadspace is 572 litres, with a total additional stowage capacity of 63 litres. The Easy Life drawer, another feature drawn from the latest Espace, faces the front passenger seat and offers a storage area of 11.5 litres. That’s three litres more than a conventional glove box. Lit and chilled, it opens via an electronic sensor and automatically locks when the vehicle stops.

In the back, the new Scenic is equipped with smart Easy Life folding tables, ideal for family use on longer journeys. They open to reveal a small storage area that can accommodate a mobile phone, a gaming console or perhaps crayons, whilst it is also possible to attach electronic tablets of different sizes. The two USB ports at the rear of the centre console mean electronic devices can be used without time restraints.

Before the end of 2016, the new Scenic will be available with a Hybrid Assist electric option for its Energy dCi 110 diesel engine, mated to a six-speed manual gearbox. Thanks to this innovation (which recovers energy during deceleration and braking) Renault is aiming to take the lead in low fuel consumption. Hybrid Assist functions with a 48-volt battery, enabling the electric motor to support the internal combustion engine, which remains in continuous operation.

Hybrid Assist version of Scenic launched

Offering CO2 of 94g/km and a claimed 80.7mpg, from £25,055.

It has Active Emergency Braking System (AEBS) with Pedestrian Detection as standard, 20-inch alloy wheels with 55 profile tyres and an 8.7-inch portrait touchscreen. dCi 110 HYBRID ASSIST engine features a 10kW electric motor located under the bonnet that works in combination with the internal combustion engine. The motor is powered by a 48-volt 150Wh battery located behind the second row seats for All-New Scénic or in the spare wheel housing for All-New Grand Scénic.

The technology dispenses with the need for a high-voltage battery thanks to the electric motor. The dCi 110 HYBRID ASSIST versions are priced only £1,000 more than the equivalent dCi 110 variants in the Scénic range, and benefit from £130 annual VED rather than £140 due to its classification as an “alternatively fuelled” vehicle.

December 2017

New 1.3 TCe 115 and 140 petrol engines announced

The new Energy TCe engine replaced the 1.2TCe and progressively reaches other Renault models from 2018. Pricing for the new engine in the Scénic line-up starts from £22,005 on-the-road.

This new engine offers a significant improvement in driving pleasure, with increased torque at low revs and greater and constant availability at high revs, while reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

The Energy TCe 140 engine has a CO2 output of 122g/km (125g/km for Grand Scénic) and achieves 52.3mpg (NEDC combined cycle) (51.4mpg for Grand Scénic). The TCe 140 engine receives 240Nm of torque at 1,600 rpm.

Meanwhile, the Energy TCe 115 – available in manual transmission only – has 220Nm of torque at 1,500 rpm with CO2 emissions of 122g/km (125g/km for Grand Scénic) and achieves 52.3mpg (NEDC combined) (50.4mpg for Grand Scénic). These figures result in a reduction in CO2 by 7 grams on Scénic and 11 grams on Grand Scénic compared to the previous petrol units.
