Renault created the compact MPV segment in Europe in 1996 with the iconic SCENIC and since has introduced three generations that have sold nearly 5 million units. Following that success, Renault is poised to introduce the new SCENIC.
The new SCENIC redefines MPV thinking with a fresh approach to the segment’s traditional cues.
Groupe Renault’s Chairman and CEO Carlos Ghosn and the Group’s SVP Corporate Design Laurens van den Acker will unveil the new SCENIC on March 1 at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.
Revitalising the MPV segment
The guiding principle behind the fourth-generation SCENIC was to provide a completely fresh take on the compact MPV. For the first time, like the new Espace, the model features a three-part windscreen that provides a panoramic view and enhanced visibility.
A number of styling features give the new SCENIC a dynamic edge. Compared with the SCENIC 3, its ground clearance has been raised and the rear overhang has been shortened, while a wider track at both the front and rear provide the vehicle with a particularly solid stance.
The new SCENIC comes with a distinctive lighting signature in the form of C-shaped head lights that benefit from LED Pure Vision technology like higher-end models.
The veil will come off the new SCENIC on the Renault stand at the Geneva Motor Show at midday on March 1 with Groupe Renault’s Chairman and CEO Carlos Ghosn and SVP Corporate Design Laurens van den Acker.
