What alternatives should I consider to a used Renault Scenic MPV?

The most obvious alternative to the Renault Scenic is the Volkswagen Golf SV. While it doesn’t look as stylish, it’s far nicer to drive and more spacious, and also benefits from a higher-quality interior.

The Citroen C4 Picasso is also worth a look. With its emphasis on comfort, it rides even more smoothly than the Scenic, yet it manages not to be quite as dishevelled in corners. It’s much cheaper to buy too.

You could also have a look at the Vauxhall Zafira Tourer. It, too, is inexpensive to buy, and comes with the added benefit of two extra seats, which fold away into the boot when they’re not needed. It, too, is better to drive than the Scenic.
