Which used Renault Grand Scenic MPV should I buy?
The wide range of turbocharged engines starts with a 113bhp 1.2-litre petrol and a 108bhp 1.5-litre diesel. The latter is the most refined diesel engine of the bunch and extremely efficient; however, as we’ve already mentioned, both of these engines struggle a bit to haul the Grand Scenic’s heft.
If you have lots of people to carry on a regular basis, we’d recommend an upgrade to the 128bhp 1.6-litre diesel, although you’ll have to live with the extra noise it makes. You could also go for a 158bhp 1.6-litre diesel, a 128bhp 1.2-litre petrol or a 138bhp 1.3-litre petrol, or there’s Renault’s 1.5-litre Hybrid Assist diesel, a mild hybrid that features a small electric motor to boost the standard engine’s fuel economy. If you can find one of these, it’s worth a look because it teams the 1.5-litre diesel’s refinement with a much-needed performance boost.
