The Reliable and Trusty Renault Scenic
The Renault Scenic has been a top performer in its class for many years now. So what exactly does the latest model have to offer? Lets take a quick look through the specifications and features and weigh up whether this car is a good buy for you and your family.
The Renault Scenic has always set the standard for cars in the Multi Purpose Vehicle class and the 2013 version, the XMOD, is no exception to this hard and fast mororing rule. The new version looks great and is much improved on the previous iteration. As usual, the Scenic is the perfect vehicle for those of you with a family.
The interior and layout will have that familiar feel for previous Scenic owners and the XMOD version will have you positioned higher int he car in a more SUV-esque position. The XMOD includes a Grip Xtend feature that provides greater traction control as a wheel that is slipping will automatically be slowed and the power will be transferred to the tyre with the greatest grip.
Potential UK Scenic owners can choose from a choice of a 1.6 litre petrol engine or else a 1.5 and 1.6 litre diesel engine. The 1.6 litre petrol engine incorporates some great fuel saving features such as a stop start mechanism and low-friction piston rings to squeeze out that bit of extra fuel economy. This petrol engine is also capable of getting close to 40 miles per gallon which no other car in the this class can touch.
The Ultimate Family Car
With the Renault Scenic getting a new lease of life in the sleeker and higher body shape of the XMOD, those of you searching for the perfect family car may not need to look much further. It is practical like all Scenics and it really does meet all the needs of a family. The Scenic XMOD starts retailing at around £17,000 and really is great value.
