Entry-level Renault Grand Scenic more than £1000 less than before
14 April 2009

Renault's new Grand Scenic will cost from £14,995.

That's more than £1000 less than the current cheapest model and matches the price of the cheapest Citroen Grand C4 Picasso. It also undercuts the cheapest Toyota Verso and VW Touran models.

Extreme trim is limited to the smallest engines and includes front, side and curtain airbags, stability control, electric front windows, air-conditioning and an MP3 connector.

There's a £1600 premium for Expression trim, but extras include electric rear windows, an automatic parking brake, child-minder mirror and a folding passenger seat.

Renault expects Dynamique trim to be the most popular choice, due to desirable extra features such as alloy wheels, automatic headlights and wipers, Bluetooth, cruise control and a leather-trimmed steering wheel.

Top-trim Privilege cars have dual-zone climate control, electric folding mirrors, rear parking sensors and a sliding centre storage unit. The priciest version is the dCi 150 Privilege auto, at £23,695.

Options for the Grand Scenic include an electric panoramic sunroof for £600 and front and rear parking sensors - as well as a reversing camera - for £650.

There's also the Carminat TomTom satellite navigation-system, which is a fully integrated system, but costs just £450.

The Grand Scenic will be in showrooms from May, while Renault's new Scenic – which is a shorter, five-seat version – goes on sale in July.
