Renault Scénic 

Design, performance and technology

Renault Scénic has enjoyed huge success since its launch in 1996, The third-generation model (available in a short or long version) was presented at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show. In 2013, this compact MPV adopts the brand's new design identity for an even more dynamic look.

Two distinct body styles with similar flowing lines 

Renault is marketing two versions of this MPV, each with its own character. Both share taut, flowing lines and full, generous forms, conveying a promise of strength and performance. However, although they share a design theme with the Mégane family, their body styles are completely different.


Renault Scénic is 4.34m long with balanced proportions, conveying a sense of performance and easy handling. Renault Grand Scénic is 4.56m long and can carry five or seven passengers. Its proportions and large glazed areas suggest a roomy cabin and high standards of onboard comfort.


Renault Scénic’s generous volumes enhance passenger comfort. Modular and flexible, Scenic delivers load capacity of between 470 and 1,870 dm3. The dashboard centre takes the form of a colour digital TFT screen, which is designed for legibility and easy to customize : an exclusive feature at this level of the range.

Renault Scénic and Grand Scénic are the first vehicles in the Renault range to feature the Visio System. This system helps to keep the driver alert and improve visibility at night through two functions. First, a lane departure warning function: a camera detects traffic lane markings and sounds an alarm if the driver accidentally strays over the lines. Second, an automatic headlight function, in which the same camera detects the lights from nearby vehicles and/or the presence of street lighting and automatically adapts vehicle lighting in consequence (from main to dipped beam or vice versa). 

Filling up on Energy 

Depending on the market, Renault Scénic and Grand Scénic may be fitted with the most recent Renault engines, designed to respect the environment : the Energy dCi 110 and Energy dCi 130 diesel engines or the Energy TCe 115 petrol engine. In spring  2010, the model became available with the 6-speed automatic EDC (Efficient Dual Clutch) gearbox.

Renault Scénic and Grand Scénic are built at the Douai plant (Northern France), an ISO 14001 certified site. Applying rigorous production standards to ensure the highest  levels of quality, the two vehicles are European leaders on their segment.

Scénic XMOD, sporty and elegant 

Revealed in February 2013, Scénic XMOD winningly combines the outdoor cues of a crossover with the refined world of an MPV. With a raised ground clearance and special alloy wheels, the car features an expressive crossover-inspired design: special front and rear bumpers, sill guards and chrome-finish roof bars. The new front end is also more expressive, incorporating Renault’s new design identity and signature LED daytime running lights.

Inside Scénic XMOD, the driver enjoys a cockpit-like environment with an exclusive fixed centre console and an array of controls, including the all-new Extended Grip traction control system. Meanwhile, the dashboard is dominated by the fully connected Renault R-Link touchscreen multimedia system (optional).
