For The Renault Grand Scenic is a compact MPV with reasonable room in all three rows (if you’re prepared to compromise in each of them). Quality is strong and the equipment level is generous.
Against The middle row of seats don’t fold into the floor, limiting practicality. They’re heavy and awkward to remove and refit, too. The ride is a little firm and rear visibility when parking isn’t great.
What Car? says
The Renault Grand Scenic is a seven-seat MPV that’s pretty spacious and comes with a range of efficient engines. It falls short of the ultimate practicality of the Citroën Grand C4 Picasso, though, and its ride isn’t as comfortable.

There are 5 Renault Grand Scenic versions available
Target Price team says:
There’s reasonable choice with the Renault Grand Scenic range. For the best balance of abilities, we’d recommend one of the diesels. The 109bhp 1.5 diesel will be fine for most – it provides reasonably perky performance and decent refinement, and the version with engine stop-start also has some of the best fuel consumption and CO2 emissions figures in the class. If you want more performance, though, the 1.6 diesel is also a peach.
There’s less choice with trim, though, because there’s only one available. It’s called Dynamique TomTom, and it comes with all sorts of goodies including sat-nav, Bluetooth and automatic lights and wipers.
Renault offers low (and interest-free) finance packages, and the Grand Scenic also comes with four years’ warranty, servicing and roadside assistance cover as standard.
