Renault Grand Scenic – new car review
Renault was a pioneer of the MPV, introducing its Espace model in 1984 and later its compact MPV the Scenic.
Since then, competition in the sector has become much more intense, and while the Espace is no longer made in right-hand-drive form and thus not marketed in the UK, the Scenic is still a mainstream contender, available in five and seven seater form, and priced from £23,375.
My test model was the seven-seat Renault Grand Scenic, priced at £28,445 in Dynamique S Nav spec, and with a 130 hp 1.6 litre diesel engine and 6-speed manual gearbox. Fuel economy is a plus-point for this model – 61.4 mpg combined. Top speed is 118 mph, the 0-60 mph time 11.4 seconds.
