First Launching in 1996, under the name of the Renault Megane Scenic, the Renault Scenic is a practical five-seater multi-purpose vehicle (MPV). The car combines engine efficiency to keep running costs down with a comfortable design, making it perfect for young families.

The Renault Scenic rivals other MPVs such as the Citroën C4 SpaceTourer, the Volkswagen Touran and the Ford C-Max, as well as SUVs such as the Nissan Qashqai, due to the model’s stylish looks and generous boot space.

Renault Scenic updates and facelifts

The Renault Scenic has steadily evolved since its original launch. In 1999 after updates to the exterior of the car and the interior including a newly revised dashboard, the car was re-named as the Renault Scenic.

The Mk3 Scenic was launched in 2013 and had a revised front bumper that included LED headlights. Renault also revised the engine range available giving the Scenic a choice of three diesel and three petrol engines.

In 2016, the Mk4 Scenic was launched. This received some subtle changes to the exterior to help it compete with the popular SUV market. The larger seven-seater version, the Grand Scenic, was also launched alongside this model. Inside, a seven-inch or 8.7-inch infotainment screen was also added alongside an integrated TomTom sat nav system, depending on the trim level of the car. In 2019, Renault added a diesel-hybrid engine to the engine range.

Practicality and style of the car

The 572-litre boot of the Renault Scenic is spacious and very handy for transporting bulky luggage for the holidays. This can be easily expanded by folding down the rear seats to give you up to 1,554 litres of space. In the Mk4, this could easily be done with the push of a button located in the boot. The Scenic’s boot capacity closely rivals the Ford C Max’s 1,684 litres.

For a little more space, the rear seats on the Mk3 can be fully removed giving the driver a large, flat loading bay to transport large, bulky items.

Other features in the boot include a false floor which can be used to store valuables out of sight or safety equipment.

Running costs

The Renault Scenic falls into insurance groups 10 to 20 and has an annual road tax of up to £180. This rivals the Citroën C4 Spacetourer, which falls into groups 14 to 25 and has a road tax of up to £200. The Ford C-Max has a higher road tax of up to £240 and can also fall into a higher insurance group bracket, sitting in groups 10 to 27.

Features you can expect to find in a Renault Scenic


The Renault Scenic was designed to satisfy the demands of family life by providing owners with a large cabin along with practical storage spaces. The interior of the Scenic is furnished with good-quality materials that are comfortable and robust. It also comes with a good amount of technology to satisfy modern drivers.

On the Mk4, the centre of the dashboard features an infotainment screen, which is seven inches on the Play and Iconic trims, and 8.2 inches on the Signature trim and above. The infotainment system uses Renault’s R-Link 2 system to display an intuitive menu design to help drivers easily navigate the system. Integrated into the system is a TomTom sat nav.

The screen is controlled via a touchscreen interface and via the shortcut buttons located on the side and bottom of the screen. Smartphones can be connected to the system via Bluetooth, USB or AUX connectivity. This allows drivers to access their personal music libraries or make hands-free calls. The screen is also used to control car functions such as climate control and driver mode selection.

Behind the steering wheel, traditional analogue dials have been replaced with a digital TFT screen which displays the dials. A head-up display can also feature on some trims, meaning that the driver does not have to take their eyes off the road for too long in order to see important information such as speed or fuel levels.

Storage in the Renault Scenic is plentiful. The main feature of the cabin is the centre console with 13 litres of space, this is available on all trim levels above the entry-level trim. The console can be slid forwards or backwards to allow passengers in the front or rear to make the most of the space. Located on the console are USB sockets for charging entertainment devices and a cubby for additional storage.

In the front of the cabin there is a large glove box as well as storage compartments under the front seats. In the rear, there are also storage compartments under the floor, fold down tray tables on the back of the front seats and map holders for stowing away entertainment devices. The Scenic’s door bins can hold large water bottles or other personal items.

In both the front and rear there are good amounts of headroom and legroom. The Scenic can fit up to five adults with ease. The suspension set-up helps to dampen rough roads, and engine and road noise is kept to a comfortable level inside the cabin.


The Renault Scenic comes with a number of features that assist drivers on the road. These include cruise control, which maintains a set speed on the motorway to make long journeys less tiring. Hill hold assist helps drivers achieve hill starts more easily by keeping the brakes on automatically until the driver is ready to accelerate. Automatic headlights turn on when light levels drop. These also come with auto high beam which automatically switches to low beam when there is an oncoming vehicle to avoid dazzling the other driver.

Other features include hands-free entry, allowing the owner to enter the vehicle without needing to get their key out. Automatic wipers turn on when rain is detected and a reversing camera can help with parking.


Euro NCAP awarded the Renault Scenic a full five stars. The Scenic scored well when it came to adult and child occupant protection scores, scoring 90% and 82% respectively. The Scenic scored higher than the Ford C-Max, which was awarded 76% for adult protection and 60% for child protection. The Scenic also achieved higher adult protection scores than both the C4 Spacetourer, 86%, and the Volkswagen Touran, 88%.

Safety features on the Scenic include autonomous emergency braking, lane departure warning and traffic sign recognition. It also features three ISOFIX points in the outermost rear seats and the front passenger seat to fix child seats securely. A pedestrian detection system works with the autonomous emergency braking system to detect pedestrians as well as vehicles, helping to reduce the likelihood of collisions.

Other safety features include a fatigue alert which detects erratic driving and issues a warning for the driver to take a break from driving as they may be tired. Fog lights on the Scenic allow the driver to see further in adverse weather conditions, giving more time to react to an obstruction.
