Renault Conquest news - Plus ca change? - 2007

Read more on:

Remember the Megane Scenic
RX4? Renault must do, because it has avoided that woeful car’s name for its
SUV-ed version of the current Scenic.

Instead, it has chosen the
name ‘Conquest’, which sounds suitably adventurous and go-getting.

We’ll get a good look at
the Conquest at Geneva next week, but before then Renault tells us it is trying
to be a 4x4 with off-road ability.

What that really means is
that the Conquest is for those who drive on poorly maintained roads and enjoy
the raised driving position of an SUV, which Renault claims improves the
on-road ability of this car.

But don’t panic, you’ll
still be able to incur the wrath of eco-warriors thanks to the Conquest’s 20mm
ride height increase and butch body addenda.

Inside,
there’s some orange trim to make it look a little different to the standard Scenic.

You can order a Scenic
Conquest from June 1 with a choice of two diesel and two petrol engines, and
prices start at £16,765.
