Scenic Wins CarBuyer’s Best MPV Award

Renault’s Scenic MPV is starting to show its age, as the current model dates back to 2003, but demand for the vehicle is still strong in the UK. The French manufacturer has racked up another trophy for its ever-growing case of awards, this time from

The 'Best MPV' award is based on a wide range of product and ownership criteria, including practicality, purchase and maintenance costs, as well as style. As part of the website’s inaugural awards, Renault UK Managing Director, Thierry Sybord, received the accolade at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show.

“I’m delighted to be accepting this latest award for our best-selling MPV. Our third-generation Scenic possesses all of the traits which have lead to its multiple award wins over the years, and just as importantly, real-world plaudits from all kinds of owners, thanks to its impressive comfort, fuel economy, practicality, reliability and safety levels,” Sybord commented.

“It’s the car that started the compact MPV revolution – and it’s still leading from the front. Our panel of experts all agreed - the Renault Scenic offers fantastic value for money and is designed to take whatever family life can throw at it. The hard-wearing interior is comfortable and well equipped, while a range of new diesel engines, including the excellent 1.5-liter dCi offer good fuel economy and impressive performance,” said Dan Strong, CarBuyer’s Editor.

The Scenic was subtlety improved upon in 2010, boasting high-quality materials and body-panel fit-and-finish and mode efficient engines. The revised range includes three new engines: 1.4 TCe 130, 2.0 VVT 140 CVT and 2.0 dCi 160 FAP. But the small MVP relies on no less than eight powerplants with maximum outputs ranging between 85 and 160 hp.
