Renault's new Grand Scenic will be available for under £15,000.
The entry-level 1.6 VVT 110 Extreme model will cost £14,995. That matches the cheapest Citroen Grand C4 Picasso and undercuts the most basic Toyota Verso and VW Touran models.
Extreme trim is limited to the smallest engines and includes front, side and curtain airbags, stability control, electric front windows, air-conditioning and Renault's TunePoint system for connecting MP3 players.
There's a £1600 premium for Expression trim, but extras include electric rear windows, an automatic parking brake, child-minder mirror and a folding passenger seat.
Renault expects Dynamique trim to be the most popular choice, due to desirable extra features such as alloy wheels, automatic headlights and wipers, Bluetooth, cruise control and leather-trimmed steering wheel.
Top-trim Privilege cars have dual-zone climate control, electric folding mirrors, rear parking sensors and a sliding centre storage unit. The priciest version is the dCi 150 Privilege auto, at £23,695.
Options for the Grand Scenic include an electric panoramic sunroof for £600 and front and rear parking sensors - as well as a reversing camera - for £650. The most interesting extra is the Carminat TomTom satellite navigation-system, which is a fully integrated system, but costs just £450.
The Grand Scenic will be in showrooms from May, while Renault's new Scenic – which is a shorter, five-seat version – goes on sale in July.
