New Scenic On Sale From 1st August | Part Four

Intending to match its stablemates with a top 5-star EuroNCAP crash test rating, New Scénic offers the largest standard safety equipment range in the sector including:

Driver and front passenger adaptive airbags including front passenger airbag deactivation, front lateral airbags, side curtain airbags, three point seatbelts on all five seats, seatbelt pretensioners on front and outer rear seats, three-point ISOFIX child seat anchorages on front passenger seat and outer rear seats, and ABS Anti-lock braking system with EBD electronic brake distribution and emergency brake assist.

Security is also prioritised across the range with deadlocking, Thatcham approved engine immobiliser and RAID Renault Anti-Intruder Device as standard. A Thatcham approved Category 1 alarm is fitted as standard to the majority of the New Scénic range – a feature that is only available at the top of the range, or as an option, on rivals.

All these models are fitted with a five-speed manual transmission. Each of these models is also available with manual air conditioning for £500 extra.
