The current Renault Grand Scenic arrived in 2009 and is set to receive a major redesign most likely next year. Speculative renderings by Julien Jodry from Auto Moto gives a near-production preview of the next-gen Renault Grand Scenic.
The next-gen Grand Scenic would feature the new familiar look seen on the Talisman, Talisman Estate as well as the fourth generation Megane. The rendering artist also previews a GT variant, in case Renault decides to bring one.
The 2017 Renault Grand Scenic will continue being a 7-seat MPV, likely followed by the original 5-seat version that will be the next-gen Renault Scenic. Both would be more or less the same in terms of design and styling, except for the different length, and be based on a version of the of the Renault-Nissan Alliance’s CMF (Common Module Family) platform – CMF-C/d, which also underpins the Kadjar crossover and the Talisman as well as the Talisman Estate.
The 2017 Renault Scenic and Grand Scenic and would be offered with a wide range of TCe petrol and dCi diesel engine options. Transmission options may include 6-speed manual and 6-Speed Efficient Dual Clutch (EDC). In 2017 or later, the company may also offer a diesel-hybrid electric variant, following the Megane ‘Hybrid Assist’. This conventional hybrid powertrain could significantly boost the fuel economy, as well as reduce the CO2 emissions to a figure below or around 100 g/km.
