Renault Grand Scenic Hits The Road

The New Renault Grand Scenic

Renault Grand Scenic

  • Renault Grand Scenic launched on Friday 2 April 2004
  • Starting at £14,613 on the road - only £1,000 more than the equivalent five-seater New Scénic
  • Grand Scénic 23cm longer than standard five-seat Scénic at 4.49 metres
  • Third row of two extra individual seats that fold flat into the floor
  • Based on only mid-size 5 star EuroNCAP crash test rated MPV
  • Renault the only manufacturer to offer two choices in the mid-MPV sector, and not one compromised model
A brand new addition to the phenomenally successful New Scénic range hits the road on Friday 2 April. Starting at £14,613 on-the-road, the New Grand Scénic is a bespoke design offering one of the most flexible car interiors yet devised with space for up to seven passengers with the one ingredient most MPVs are missing – style. Together with better levels of equipment and safety than its competitors New Grand Scénic gives Renault a unique offering in the mid-MPV sector – two different sized versions.

Whilst the term MPV normally means that a stylish and appealing design got forgotten about in the quest for practicality, Renault have shown once again why they are the leaders of this class of car. The latest new Espace IV introduced last year has already been hailed by critics as creating a new category of luxury MPV single-handedly, and was joined by the New Scenic II late last year which brought a beautifully crafted interior to the mid-size MPV game. Now the latest Grand Scenic fits in-between meaning that no matter what size you want your MPV you don’t have to accept a dull bland one.

New Scénic’s distinctive design has not been compromised for its transformation into the Grand Scénic with the 23cms of extra length shared between the wheelbase (5cm) and rear overhang (18cm) to give a balanced, modern and distinctive look.
