Two new engines will be fitted into the 2012 range from April. Renault’s 1.2 TCe 115 petrol offers a combined fuel consumption figure of 49.6mpg with 135g/km CO2 emissions, while a 1.5-litre dCi 110 with stop-start achieves 68.9 mpg and emits 105g/km CO2.

Just one trim level is offered - Dynamique TomTom – which includes 16-inch alloys, Bluetooth, cruise control, sat-nav and rear parking sensors as standard. LED daytime running lights are also included.

On top of the standard trim level, Luxe Pack adds 17-inch alloys, climate control, an upgraded stereo system and electric folding door mirrors.

All Renault Scenic and Grand Scenic 2012 models are eligible for Renault’s £900 4+ programme, which begins in February. The package includes a 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.

That looks like quite a successful update from the pictures, avoiding the clumsy look some updates can give.

Appears to be quite a competitive package at the prices too.

 

 

It's all about the twisties........

100% Agree with Teg. The Grand defo looks the better proportioned car IMO. Anyone else see the old shape Civic in the smaller of the two? (side-on view)

23 January 2012

Agree on front face improvement. Not sure I see any Civicness there. Wonder if the back view is better/ more homegeneous? They invented the niche but not sure they'd be the one I'd buy now in this class.

looks good! the nose is better resolved than our 2009 one, and i agree with others, the grand does look better, personally, i can't understand the point of the 5 seat! the grand is only a bit longer and gives you a massive boot!! plus the bonues of the extra seats.

We took ours to france for christmas - 4 adults, and 3 kids and a roof box. and it coped really well - averaged 30mpg with its 1.4 turbo petrol, and surprisingly it didn't feel overwhelmed. a cracking car.

"£900 4+ programme, which begins in February. The package includes a four-year/100,000 mile warranty, free routine servicing for four years/48,000 miles"

A small point, but if you are paying £900 for the 4+ programme then routine servicing is not "free" is it.

Not sure if it is the pictures but the front reminds me of a bubble car. Not too keen on the revised front at all. Good choice of engines though and maybe it will keep Renault afloat in the UK with the downsized range.

Doesnt look too bad to me and if you wait a few months there will be some amazing discounts . Mind you they will only about 30% of list price as 3 year olds . The new 1.6 diesel looks like the pick of the range to me .

£18,325 for a 1.2 petrol, must have big windows in the Renault dealership, someone is seriously extracting the urine, the Ford online price for a 1.6 petrol C-Max Zetec starts at £16,445, it may not be as well equipped but its a far better car, and 2 grand cheaper, its probably even cheaper from a dealer with the usual healthy discount.

Still not the best looking, but I guess the facelift is somewhat successful. I prefer the look from the 2003 - 09 model though.

Evidently, on Scenic owners' forums, the Scenic dCi has developed a serious drinking habit. Given that my own new Clio dCi has started drinking (in comparison to my previous 55-plate car) as well, I would hope Renault has given some thought to this.
