Interior layout

The interior layout, fit and finish

Step inside the Scenic and you see an interior that lets in plenty of light and is easy to see out of. All but the entry-level models get front and rear parking sensors to make it easier to place the car at slow speeds. Both the seat and steering wheel have lots of adjustment, so finding the ideal driving position shouldn’t be too hard.

Most materials you touch regularly feel good, but there are places that feel much flimsier, especially the lower reaches of the dash, while the sliding centre console of higher trim levels doesn’t seem sturdy enough for family use.

If you opt for the top two trims, you get an 8.7in touchscreen infotainment system of portrait orientation. Although it has plenty of functionality, the menus can be tricky to navigate on the move. Go for the lower-spec models and you get a 7.0in touchscreen system complete with sat-nav.

Three TFT screens augment the central display, replacing the traditional dials. While you can change what the screens show, they aren’t as good-looking as Volkswagen’s Active Info Display, nor can they convey as much information. The top two trims get a handy head-up display with decent-resolution graphics, helping to keep your eyes on the road.
