The new Renault SCENIC (world premier)
In 1996, the first-generation Scénic saw Renault invent the compact multi-purpose vehicle (MPV). Today, 20 years later, Renault has redefined the concept.
The new SCENIC is a modern, assertive MPV that will be bought not only for the driving enjoyment it delivers, but also for the comfort the whole family will be able to enjoy whilst travelling.
The design and appeal of the new Renault SCENIC breaks away from conventional MPV cues thanks to the new model’s unprecedented proportions, the fitment of 20-inch wheels across the range and a head-turning two-tone colour scheme that is unprecedented in the segment.
True to its DNA, the new SCENIC meets the needs of families. It takes the modularity that forged the success of the model’s earlier generations to a new level to make everyday motoring even easier, including a One Touch Folding system for the rear seats.
Meanwhile, in addition to a comprehensive list of other driving aids, the new SCENIC is the only compact MPV to feature AEBS (Active Emergency Braking System) with Pedestrian Detection as standard equipment.
The new SCENIC also packs features more usually associated with the next segment up, such as MULTI-SENSE technology, R-LINK 2 complete with an 8.7-inch screen and a colour head-up display. The fourth generation of the model will also be available with an electrified Hybrid Assist diesel powertrain.
The new Grand SCENIC will be revealed before the summer and both cars will go on sale in Europe before the end of the year.
The new Renault MEGANE Estate and the new MEGANE Estate GT (world premier)
The Geneva Motor Show also sees Renault present the new MEGANE Estate and the new MEGANE Estate GT, just two months after the launch of the model’s hatchback, GT and GT Line versions.
The dynamic, elegant new MEGANE Estate combines an intuitive, modular interior, including a choice of boot arrangements, with the segment’s longest maximum load length. The new MEGANE Estate GT features a large carrying capacity, 4CONTROL technology with four-wheel steering and Renault Sport signature styling.
These two versions of the MEGANE are due to go on sale in September.
Inspired by the brand’s 2015/2016 product offensive, which covers the release of 10 new vehicles over the period, Renault’s stand at the Geneva Motor Show presents the European market’s youngest model line-up, inaddition to showcasing six of the landmark innovations that feature on its latest models (4CONTROL and MULTI-SENSE technology, Hybrid Assist, modular interiors, the new SCENIC’s latest driving aids, R-LINK 2 and the R240 motor).
