We bought this car as a pre-registered demo with 60 miles on the clock from our local main agent in Feb 2014. This is our third Grand Scenic, after having two of the previous generation. We own the facelift version, which looks great compared to the original. The first thing you notice when you get in the cabin is the futuristic look, something my children love. Everything is in easy reach, and the sat-nav is easy to use. I would have given it five stars, but for the positioning of the headlight switch on the stalk being obscured by the steering wheel, so you can't see if they are off or in the auto position. I'm surprised to read the What Car? review being not very favourable to the ride, as I find it very comfortable. For a car of it's size it feels pretty nimble, and on empty roads it can easily be thrown about when cornering and on roundabouts. I'd even go so far to say t's fun to drive although that may be helped by the excellent 1.6 130bhp diesel engine. Running costs are very good, and on a long motorway run with the cruise set at 70 MPH, I have returned almost 70 mpg from it. Around town you're looking at just over 54 mpg, and combined around 59 mpg. The Stop-Start feature tajkes some getting used to at first, but once you get familiar with it, it comes naturally. We regularly fill all 7 seats, and the engine still has enough poke to get you places quickly. All in all, it's an improvement on the 2nd generation Scenic's, and a good VFM car.
