Only a few days after announcing UK pricing and specification for its New Twingo, Renault has just released the same details for its Scénic 2012 range, as part of its revised model line-up from 1st February. Prices for the newly facelifted versions of Europe’s number one compact MPV start from £18,325 on-the-road for Scénic and £19,725 for Grand Scénic.
The new Renault Scénic and Grand Scénic models for 2012 are sharper in design, more economical and boast a number of equipment enhancements.
Both versions of Scénic feature a revised look with more contemporary front styling, plus gloss black and chrome detailing, standard LED daytime running lights and new rear lights. The range also welcomes two new body colours, Azzurro Blue and Damask Red.
Scénic and Grand Scénic 2012 is launched with just one trim level – Dynamique TomTom. This continues to have class-leading levels of equipment and for 2012, on top of its core equipment: 16” alloy wheels, auto lights and wipers, Bluetooth™, cruise control, Carminat TomTom Live satellite navigation, it now includes rear parking sensors and LED daytime running lights as standard.
To make Scénic and Grand Scénic 2012 more appealing, all are eligible for the Renault 4+ programme worth £900, which launches on 1st February 2012. The package offers all retail customers a comprehensive four-year/100,000 mile warranty, free routine servicing for four years/48,000 miles, four years roadside cover and up to four years finance (lease or PCP, subject to status).
Available as an option on all versions of the Dynamique TomTom (except the 1.6 VVT 110), a new Luxe Pack offers some impressive equipment worth considerably in excess of its £1,500 price tag. Included in it are 17” ‘Sari’ alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control, BOSE Energy Efficient sound system with nine speakers, digital amplifier, sliding centre console, electrically folding door mirrors and the Visio System.
The two new Scénics each play an important part in achieving Renault’s target to become Europe’s number one manufacturer with regard to the CO2 emissions of its range, without detracting from performance.
Two new Renault engines debut in the Scénic 2012 range, the 1.2 TCe 115 petrol (available from April) and 1.5 dCi 110 Stop & Start, both with performance, economy and emission figures. The latter offers 68.9 mpg (combined cycle). The new downsized engines offer greater performance and fuel efficiency through smaller cubic capacity engine innovation and technologies derived from Formula 1 (Stop & Start, brake energy regeneration).
Prices for the Scénic start at £18,325 for the Dynamique TomTom 1.6 VVT 110 and go up to £21,325 for the top-of-the-range Dynamique TomTom 1.6 dCi 130 Stop & Start. Seven-seat Grand Scénic prices start from £19,725 for the Dynamique TomTom 1.6 VVT 110, rising to £22,725 for the Dynamique TomTom 1.6 dCi 130 Stop & Start.
The new Scenic range will be available to order from 23rd January 2012, with the new 1.2 TCe 115 engine from early April).
