Following the unveiling of its first crossover, Captur, which arrives in Ireland in July, Renault has redesigned the popular Scénic as a crossover and unveils the New Scénic XMOD which will arrive in Irish showrooms from this month.
Sporty and elegant, New Scénic Xmod combines the outdoor cues of a crossover with the refined world of an MPV. With raised ground clearance and exclusive alloy wheels, the car features an expressive crossover-inspired design: special front and rear bumpers, sill guards and chrome-finish roof bars across the range. The new front radiator grille is also more expressive, incorporating Renault’s new design identity and signature LED daytime running lights.
First hitting European roads in 1996 over 4.3 million Scénics were manufactured and the Scénic became an iconic MPV, the first choice of many Irish families.
To mark the launch of New Scénic Xmod, New Scénic and New Grand Scénic have also 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 emphasises the new grille. Elegant lines and high-quality materials also help to enhance the MPV’s dynamic, family-oriented feel.
New Scénic Xmod retains the genetic make-up and practicalities of the benchmark MPV, but has a more sporty and exciting look.
In Ireland, the Scénic Xmod will be available in two diesel Stop & Start engines, acknowledged as being the most fuel-efficient in their categories, the Energy dCi 110 and dCi 130 engine.
The Energy dCi 110 engine with a fuel consumption of 4.1 litres/100 km and a CO2 emission rating of 105 g/km: simply the best ratings on the market in the category.
The Energy dCi 130 engine with a fuel consumption of 4.4 litres/100 km and a CO2 emission rating of 114 g/km: here again the record holder in its category. The dCi 110 engine will also come in EDC version.
Also available in the new Energy TCe 115 Stop & Start petrol engine with a fuel consumption of 6.1 litres/100 km and CO2 emissions of 140 g/km.Scenic Xmod will come in two editions in Ireland: Dynamique and BOSE®.
New Scénic Xmod is the first vehicle in the Renault range to feature the all-new Extended Grip system. This advanced traction control system enables the vehicle to grip the road confidently under difficult driving conditions (mud, sand and fresh snow etc.). Manually activating the rotary control positioned on the centre console, the driver can choose from three types of assistance.
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, and this mode automatically reconnects at speeds of over 40kph. The ‘Loose Ground’ mode optimises braking control and engine torque control as a function of available grip. The Scénic Xmod is instantly recognisable by its chrome-plated longitudinal roof bars and side protection mouldings, and 16” mud + snow tyres. Combined with the Extended Grip control system, these tyres, with their special tyre tread, provide maximum traction on loose ground.
