New Renault Scenic XMOD and Grand Scenic revealed
Renault Scenic XMOD replaces the Scenic MPV.
The new Renault Scenic XMOD has been unveiled. The XMOD replaces the regular Scenic MPV and is front-wheel drive but has a clever traction control system, called GripXtend. The GripXtend system has ‘loose surface’ and ‘road’ settings to help the Scenic in low-grip conditions.
The Scenic XMOD also has a fresh design, with off-road styling cues that include special front and rear bumpers, unique alloy wheels as well as chrome roof rails and cladding around the wheel arches and lower doorsills. The front-end sports the latest Renault design language, equipped with LED headlights.
Inside, there's a new R-Link infotainment system that includes a seven-inch touchscreen and a clever multi-directional joystick to operate it. Higher models have a flat-bottomed steering wheel, aluminium pedals, optional leather upholstery plus a BOSE stereo.
Boot capacity is 555 litres with the rear seats folded, which is 31 litres more than the Scenic that it replaces.
Renault has introduced the Grand Scenic as well, which also has the latest design language and R-Link infotainment system. The Renault Scenic XMOD and Renault Grand Scenic will debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
