Facelift aims to keep Scenic ahead of rivals

RENAULT is trying to keep one step ahead of growing competition for its Scenic mini-MPV with the launch of a heavily facelifted version next month. Overall, there is a slight rise in prices, but enhanced specification means buyers get better value for money, the manufacturer claims.

Only the 1.9-litre Tdi engine is carried over, while the rest of the engine range is new to Scenic, with a 1.4-litre 95bhp 16v, a 1.6-litre 16v and a 2.0-litre 140bhp 16v added to the range. Prices range from £13,100 for the 1.4 16v to £18,300 Monaco 2.0-litre 16v automatic, although a full list has yet to be released.

Manual and four-speed automatic transmission options will be available from 1.6 models upwards. Outside, the main changes include a more rounded nose, large vertical lamp clusters and a simplified rear profile, with a split rear tailgate on top-of-the-range models.
