Renault has launched a new 1.6-litre diesel engine to join the Renault Scénic range. The company claims the engine “offers the lowest emissions and best fuel economy and performance of any MPV powered by a similar-sized engine in the UK.”

See a pic of the new Renault Grand Scenic The engine, a 1.6-litre ‘Energy’ dCi 130, produces CO2 emissions of 115g/km, a reduction of over a fifth compared with the previous 1.9-litre diesel engine of the same power. Fuel economy is also improved by 25 per cent to over 64mpg, according to the firm. The engine will enable the Scénic to hit 62mph from standing in 10.3sec, where it will go on to a maximum speed of 121mph. Torque is rated at 236lb ft from 1,750rpm with peak power of 128bhp coming in at 4000rpm. Available to order now, the Energy dCi 130 unit can be bought in the Scénic and Grand Scénic Dynamique TomTom models.

Prices start from £20,900 and £22,200 respectively with first deliveries expected in July 2011.
