The current, second generation of Scenic brought more dynamic styling to the mid-size MPV market and the new special edition Scenic Maxim continues this theme with a combination of sporty style, an air of exclusivity and an array of luxury equipment. With on the road prices starting at £15,040, again after a customer saving of £1,035, the Scenic Maxim offers great value for money.
The launch of New Scenic and then the introduction of the seven-seat Grand Scenic in September 2004, cemented its reputation as the most desirable and innovative compact MPV. Renault are launching this latest special edition, Maxim, for both Scenic and Grand Scenic.
Based on the Dynamique model, sitting just below the Privilège, Maxim costs only £500 more than the equivalent Dynamique, yet boasts extras of 16" Louxor alloy wheels, climate control, cruise control with speed limiter, part leather upholstery and sliding centre storage unit worth £1,150.
Aside from the added extras, Maxim’s high level of standard equipment includes: ABS with EBD (electronic brake distribution), automatic headlamps and windscreen wipers, front and rear electric windows, 60W CD-RDS radio.
In keeping with the Maxim’s dynamic positioning, the entry-level 1.4 16V engine is not available, so engine options start with the 1.6 VVT 115, followed by even more potent engines – 2.0 VVT 136 in both manual and automatic, 2.0 Turbo 165 and 1.9 dCi 120.
Both of the new special editions are available with 0% finance over four years with 35% deposit, as well as a low APR rate on Renault’s PCP scheme, Selections. The order books for both models open immediately, with Scenic Maxim available until June and Megane Oasis until October.Published 5 April 2005
