Renault Scenic 2012 unveiled
There are cosmetic changes for Scenic and Grand Scenic models, new engines and more high-tech equipment.
New bumpers, light lenses and grilles give the Scenic and larger, seven-seat Grand Scenic a fresh look. LED daytime running lights have been added and there is extra gloss black and chrome exterior trim. Two new colours – Azzurro Blue and Damask Red – are available.
Two new versions are available. The 1.5 dCi Stop & Start uses the existing 1.5 dCi diesel engine, but adds stop-start and brake energy regeneration systems. CO2 emissions – compared with the current 1.5 dCi – are down by 23g/km to 105g/km, while fuel economy rises 11.3mpg to 68.9mpg.
A new 1.2 TCe 115 petrol model also joins the range. It will replace the current 1.6 VVT 110 model and emits 39g/km less CO2, at 135g/km. Fuel economy is 11.4mpg better, at 49.6mpg.
New options include Renault’s Visio System, which combines a lane departure warning system with an automatic headlight function that detects the lights of nearby vehicles and/or street lighting. Hill Start Assist is now standard on all versions.
Prices and specification for the 2012 Scenic range are yet to be confirmed, but we’d expect only a small increase over the current model.
The new models are available to order from February 1, with first deliveries due in March.
