The currently sold third-generation Renault Scenic has been out in the market since 2009, and though it received a mid-life facelift in 2013, now it highly awaits a full makeover to enter the fourth-generation. A fresh report from Largus.fr says that the fourth-generation Renault Scenic will be launched in June 2016.
The compact MPV will be unveiled at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show in March, as per the report and will share the CMC-C platform with the Nissan Qashqai and Renault Kadjar. The CMF-C platform is a version of the Common Module Family (CMC) platform developed by the Renault Nissan Alliance for large vehicles. According to the report, engine options on the 2016 Scenic will include:
- 115 hp 1.2-litre TCe petrol engine
- 110 hp 1.5-litre dCi diesel engine
- 130 hp 1.6-litre dCi bi-turbo diesel engine
- 160 hp 1.6-litre dCi bi-turbo diesel engine
The transmission choices will include 6-speed manual transmission and 7-speed Efficient Dual-Clutch (EDC) transmission, varying as per the engine option. Furthermore, the report also hints a possibility of an electrified version of the Scenic arriving by 2018, dubbed as the Scenic ZEOD (Zero Emission On Demand). The report also states that the company will extend the compact MPV to more global markets with the launch of the fourth generation model, starting with China.
Talking about all-new compact vehicles, the company will also unveil the fourth-generation Megane at the 2015 International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt, followed by a commercial launch in January 2016. The report claims that the common replacement for the Laguna and Latitude will be revealed on July 6, 2015.
