It’s part crossover, part MPV

The new Scenic has lost the traditional MPV-styling and gone for a rugged, off-roader look. It’s wider, with shorter overhangs, just like a real SUV. Renault tried to make its outgoing Scenic into a crossover with the XMOD version, but this is the first time the designers have been given a clean slate.

The result certainly looks a lot more interesting than usual MPVs – the canopy-style roof, chunky-wheel arches and big wheels – more on those in the next slide - make it look more like a Captur than a typical family-friendly MPV. But it makes sense, given the popularity of crossover models.
