The Renault Scenic is a rival to the Ford C-Max, Citroen C4 Picasso and other five-seat compact MPVs. To try and separate it from the competition, Renault has incorporated elements of SUV design language.
It might look different, but the engines are shared with a number of other cars from the French company. These include a 1.2-litre petrol with two power levels, plus a pair of diesel engines. You can even get a mild hybrid if you need the lowest CO2 emissions possible.
All variants get electric windows, air-conditioning, DAB radio and giant 20in wheels. Crucially, all receive automatic emergency braking and score the full five stars in Euro NCAP crash testing.
Over the next few pages, we’ll let you know how it performs on the road, what practicality is like, how much it’ll cost and which version is the best.
