New Renault Grand Scenic Photos and Details

Renault today unveiled new specifications and official photos of the new Grand Scenic, a model that will go on sale at the end of April 2009 and will be available in five- and seven-seat versions. The car will be offered in a choice of five petrol engines and six diesel powerplants, each of them specifically designed for reduced fuel economy and CO2 emissions.

The French manufacturer says the new Grand Scenic "shares its genes with the rest of the Megane range", providing several similar features, including the high level of safety accredited with top EuroNCAP crash test score.

The upgraded Grand Scenic range include an all-new Moka Brown body color while the front and rear bumper feature parking proximity sensors. Other noticeable differences concern the chromed grille, the foglamp back plates and door handles, gloss black center-pillars, chrome tailgate trimming and body-color side protective mouldings.

Interiors are now featuring a wide array of upgrades, starting with illuminated, chilled 11-glovebox and ending with three 12V power supplies for front occupants and for rear passengers.

Other feature highlights include cruise control with speed limiter, tire pressure monitoring system, bi-xenon headlamps with cornering lights, seatbelt reminder for front seats and automatic headlamp and windscreen wiper activation.

"New Grand Scénic builds on the strengths that forged the success of the first two generations of Scénic to deliver even more cabin space and greater comfort for its occupants, as well as saloon car-standard handling. It also benefits from the experience of Renault’s Douai plant in the production of compact MPVs, since the French site is the long-standing factory for Scénic," Renault said in a statement for the press.
