Renault has added new features and upgrades to its Renault Scenic people carrier prior to its launch in January 2012.
New additions to the Scenic model, Renault's compact five-seat MPV, include exterior and interior styling upgrades - most notably in a new front end - as well as two new, more efficient engines.
The revamped Scenic will offer two new diesel engines, a 4.1-litre dCi 110 and a 4.4-litre dCi 130. These new engines will offer better CO2 emissions with the 4.1-litre returning emissions of 105g/km and the 4.4-litre returning emissions of 114g/km.
The Scenic has two new interior trims, which includes a beige trim and a dark charcoal trim. Each of these interior trims offer unique styling and equipment. As well as these two trims there is also a leather upholstery package offered.
Other interior features included as part of the trim levels are a Bose audio system and a TomTom satellite navigation system.
The revamped exterior of the Scenic includes new rear lights, wheel trims and alloys and a newly designed front end that now stands more horizontal. Four new body colours are also offered: Grenat Red and Majorelle Blue.
Some new technology featured on the Scenic is a Visio system, hill start assist and an automatic headlight function. The new Visio system assists the driver's vigilance at night thanks to its two key functions. The Scenic is one of the first models to feature this new Visio system.
New 2012 Renault Scenic prices have not been announced, but somewhere in the region of £15-18,000 is expected from the French car maker.
