Subscriptions & booklets

A b January 2012 the refreshed Renault Scénic and his brother the seven-seat Grand Scénic to the dealers. If you want to recognize the new ones, you have to look carefully, because the changes for the new model year are rather moderate.

Differentiation from Scénic and Grand Scénic

The most striking are the redesigned front aprons of both models, which differ significantly and thus clearly distinguish the larger from the smaller van. The Scénic has two aluminum-colored inserts on the outside of the apron that accommodate the fog lights and the LED daytime running light strips. The middle part of the bumper is black from the top to the bottom air intake. With the Grand Scénic, the aluminum look line extends across the entire width of the apron. A narrow bar connects the LED daytime running light strips with one another. The bumper area between the air inlets is in the vehicle color. The rear lights with LED technology have also been redesigned. The Scénic carries it with an L-shaped curve to the tailgate, the Grand Scénic represents the foot of the L in the direction of the rear fenders.

The rear apron approaches are also differentiated. The Scénic is sportier and attracts with one bold upward swing on the flanks. The Grand Scénic leaves it with a continuous horizontal line. Depending on the equipment, body and add-on parts in gloss black as well as chrome elements on the front, tailgate and side protection strips complete the visual appearance.

Renault Scénic with two new engines

The interior of the Scénic models is enhanced by new surfaces and upholstery fabrics. The package previously offered as a Bose special edition will in future be part of the normal equipment lines. The new Renault Scénic also has a camera-based lane departure warning system and automatic high beam control.

New on the drive side are a 1.6-liter turbo diesel with 110 hp and 260 Nm torque and a 1.2 -Liter four-cylinder turbo gasoline engine with 115 hp and 190 Nm torque. Both engines are equipped with a start-stop system and brake energy recovery as standard. The diesel should only consume 4.1 liters per 100 kilometers, the CO2 emissions are given as 105 g /km. The petrol engine emits 135 g /km, which corresponds to a consumption of 5.8 liters.
