Verdict

The Renault Grand Scenic is an MPV with plenty of practical space, an option for seven seats and has relatively low running costs. It offers up some stiff competition for the likes of the Opel Zafira Tourer, Citroen Grand C4 Picasso and the Volkswagen Touran.

Performance

The Renault Grand Scenic engines choices range from a 1.2-litre petrol engine with two power outputs, to 1.5 and 1.6 litre diesel engines which produce either 128 or 158bhp. The 1.6 litre diesel can reach 100km/h from a standing start in 10.7 seconds and hit a top speed of 200km/h.

Ride & Handling

The Renault Grand Scenic has a fair bit of body lean when taking corners. It’s handling is adequately responsive although at higher speeds the Grand Scenic’s steering isn’t the best. The standard 20-inch alloy wheels mean that the Grand Scenic is more susceptible to bumps in the road than perhaps it would be on smaller wheels.

Refinement

There is little engine and wind noise to speak of in the Grand Scenic and it offers a pleasant driving experience at lower speeds. The interior dashboard has a minimalist design that is very like the latest Megane hatchback.

Quality & Reliability

The cabin of the Grand Scenic is made up of high quality materials for the most part. Renault may not have had the best track record in the past for reliability, but they have made a conscious effort to improve this in recent years and you shouldn’t have any concerns about the standard of the Grand Scenic.

Safety & Security

The Renault Grand Scenic has yet to receive its own Euro NCAP score. However, the previous model scored a five-star rating in the Euro NCAP. It scored 91% for Adult occupants, 76% for child occupants, 42% pedestrian and 99% for safety assist. So, you can expect this model to have at least a five-star rating.

Space & Practicality

There is plenty of room in both the front and the back in terms of legroom and headroom, although having three adults in the back for long journeys may prove to be slightly uncomfortable. The boot size measures in at a respectable 596 litres. The second row of seats slide forward and back to optimise legroom or boot space to suit your needs, while the third-row seats folds flat into the boot floor.
