Renault gives more Scenic choice

RENAULT claims to have cut up to £1,825 from its new Scenic range through improved engine performance and extra specification. In an attempt to offer fleets the choice of every level of specification without the need for an options list, the manufacturer has increased the number of variants from 16 to 35 and increased the number of trim levels from three to seven.

The range gains a 1.4-litre 95bhp petrol engine and the old 90bhp 1.6 petrol unit now produces 110bhp. Standard specification on the new entry-level Scenic now includes central locking, driver, passenger and side airbags, electric door mirrors, electric front windows, and immobiliser.

The new Alize 1.6 16v equals the performance of the former RT 2.0 but is £1,430 cheaper than the outgoing model which cost £16,130 with optional air conditioning (now standard), and the new Scenic has the additional airbags worth £395: a total saving of £1,825.
