Renault is testing the fourth generation 2016 Renault Scenic across Europe, and two test mules have been spied in Netherlands. The new spyshots, like the previous pictures, don’t reveal much because of the heavy camouflage. But they do again confirm that the design and styling will be very close to what we saw in this speculative rendering.
Like the 2015 Renault Kadjar and the fourth generation 2016 Renault Megane, the fourth generation 2016 Renault Scenic will be based on the C/d version of the Renault-Nissan Alliance’ CMF platform. The spy shots, courtesy of Autovisie reader Jack Burremans, hint that the next-gen model will be bigger. The Dutch publication says that it will share many components with the Renault Kadjar, Renault Espace and the Nissan Qashqai.
The 2016 Renault Scenic would be offered with a range of TCe petrol and dCi diesel engine options, with the petrol lineup including a small 1.2-litre turbocharged unit. Transmission choices are likely to be the 6-speed manual and 6-Speed dual clutch automatic (EDC).
The next-gen 2016 Renault Scenic is said to have its world debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show in March. It will have folding bench seats, not independent rear seats like now. Its three-row version, the 2017 Renault Grand Scenic, will reportedly be launched in Autumn 2016 in Europe.
