2013 Renault Scenic & Grand Scenic

Posted on: February 6th, 2013


The Renault Scénic and Grand Scénic have been restyled to take on Renault’s new design identity. The Renault logo at the front is now bigger and set against a gloss black background that emphasizes the new grille.


On the inside, the trademark soft curves of the dashboard now include an area devoted to navigation and multimedia, in addition to the TFT screen which can be customized to display key information. R-Link makes its appearance on Renault Scénic and includes a joystick control plus a touchscreen display positioned within the driver’s field of vision. There’s also a standard fit Bose-engineered sound system on certain trim levels.

Also revealed is the Renault Scenic XMOD, which basically a Scenic made to look like a crossover with a raised ground clearance and special alloy wheels plus special front and rear bumpers, sill guards and chrome-finish roof bars. The XMOD comes with Extended Grip System with three modes to aid driving on loose grounds. In ‘Expert’ mode, Extended Grip manages the braking system, while leaving the driver in full control of the engine torque. The ‘Road’ mode offers conventional traction control settings while the ‘Loose Ground’ mode optimises braking control and engine torque control as a function of available grip.


More details of the three cars will be revealed at the Geneva Motor Show.
