What's the used Renault Scenic MPV like?

Renault got it spot on again in the MPV sector with the Renault Megane Scenic. It took a small hatch as a base and turned it in to a far more versatile car, thanks to three rear seats that can be individually removed to allow for all sorts of passenger and cargo permutations.

The driving position is a little too bus-like for some drivers, because of the awkward angle of the steering wheel, but comfort is good for other occupants. With all five seats in use, the boot is still capable of holding their luggage.

There's a broad spread of trim and engine options, so there's a Scenic for every driver, although the Renault is not as good to drive or as refined as a Vauxhall Zafira. The Zafira also has the advantage of seven seats, something this generation of Scenic never had.
