Renault Scenic and Grand Scenic Refreshed and Fuel Economy Improved

Renault Scenic and Grand Scenic Refreshed and Fuel Economy Improved

Renault's Scenic and Grand Scenic are getting some minor upgrades for 2012. Expect a revised exterior, better emissions and better fuel economy for the new model. 

The Scenic models are getting a new front end with changed front bumper, new headlights with LED daytime running lights, new tail lights and more chrome and gloss black trim. Renault has also added two more colors to the range: Grenat Red and Majorelle Blue. Renault also added two interior colors for the Privilege/Initiale trim levels: beige and dark charcoal. There is also a new package that adds leather and Alcantara to the interior. 

Renault added two more powerplants to the Scenic lineup: the Energy dCi 110 and Energy dCi 130. Both are diesel engines. The Energy dCi 110 replaces the 1.5 dCi 110 and the Energy dCi 130 replaces the 1.9 dCi 130. Both show economy and emissions improvements over the engines that they replace. The Energy dCi 110 produces 105g/km of CO2, consumes4.1l/100km, a 12% improvement over the previous engine, and produces 20Nm more torque. The Energy dCi 130 produces 114g/km of CO2 and 4.4l/100km of diesel, which is a 20% improvement.

Renault is also adding a petrol engine to the cars. The Energy TCe 115 replaces the 1.6 16v 110hp. The new engine produces 135g/km of CO2 and uses 20% less fuel than the old engine. 

Renault has added several standard and optional features to the Scenics. Hill-start assist is standard, and if drivers tap the indicator stalk, the tail lights flash to tell other drivers that the vehicle is changing lanes. The 2012 Scenic and Grand Scenic have an avialable lane departure warning system and automatic headlights. Bose audio and TomTom navigation are also available options.
