Besides the hatchbacks and SUVs home to the market back on family cars. We went out with a Renault Grand Scenic.

At the time of crisis, big mpv not popular, hence the question that manufacturers are trying to deal with large (r) MPV. Renault had that problem with the Espace, which is why they came up with the Grand Scenic. Factor on this car was obviously the Scenic, they showed a bit of growing in all directions. The biggest difference between the two French brothers, we notice the back, so this one more Grand Scenic styled rear. The Espace beside an ideal family car also an ideal lease car was, they were at Renault, which is why they cost no effort to save for the Grand Scenic and top business useful. The Grand Scenic was also the great family face with front, which Renault also follows the current trend for almost all models of the same styling needs. Everything must be said that the Renault Grand Scenic certainly not unpleasant appearance is on the road.

Our test model was equipped with the Privilege equipment package, including witlederen seats and a light gray interior. A more successful than color combination, as evidenced by the many compliments about the interior. The meterset is performed digitally as we know it from the French, with a central display that reminds us of the Espace. Everything seems to be true on the inside, so we get a perfect armrest that we again can move in all directions and we sidepockets can leave a total of 9 liters good for storage.
That is not the maximum, because we found anywhere in the Grand Scenic back pockets, ideal for a family car. As a bonus, Renault car with a large panoramic sunroof, which quite often makes for a pleasant pastime in the back, both day and night. The folding tables can be transformed into a small back office for professionals or sign an ideal space for our younger artists.

We got the top version with Renault, both in terms of interior and motorization. Since Belgium is a country we chose diesel for the big 2.0 dCi with 160 hp. It went very smoothly forward Renault Grand Scenic, it shows among other things, the sprint time of about 10 seconds. The good family man does what will have fun, but we would also be able to do with less. Renault offers a diesel version with 105 horsepower from the 1.5 dCi block and a version with 140 horsepower from the 1.9dCi, but current customers of the 1.5 dCi engine, we got to hear the criticism that it is just too little power to them smoothly to be in daily traffic. A Grand Scenic with a diesel you can get for a base price of € 23,000, more than you pay € 31,000. As with our 2.0 dCi more than good meekonden in traffic seems the 1.9 dCi the recommended motorization, for a starting price € 27,000 from outside and so you still save a two thousand euros without compromising strength. Our consumption at the Grand Scenic 2.0 dCi 660 km was after testing on 9.5 l/100 km, where Renault himself speaks of 7 l/100 km. That figure is not immediately feasible, but you can still get good fuel economy with this car. Apart from these three diesel engines can also opt for a petrol engine. Slip is the 1.6i with 105 hp (which is inadequate), followed by a smaller but more potent 1.4 TCE with 130 hp. The topbenzineversie the 2.0i engine with 140 horsepower, these diesel motorization is the only thing you can get an automatic gearbox. The starting price for the gasoline starts at € 21,000 and € 27,000 to stop.

Driving the Grand Scenic is a real pleasure. The high degree of equipment we could enjoy the pure driving scene due swiveling bi-xenon, automatic rain and light sensor, heated seats, cruise control, climate control per zone, and that both front and rear. The steering wheel as a good student listens to his master and through dynamic suspension, we feel the ground just enough in terms of feedback. Thanks gemakszuchtige - but oh so practical - his keycard we also have started without the keys, we actually had to use the nearby presence of the key card is sufficient. The witlederen seats offer superior support as long as it remains in moderate cornering. The strength of the back consists of its flexibility, so you can see each part individually or jointly collapse and expand.

Renault 4 option provides standard classes. The base class is the Authentique , which may sound cheap, but far from barren rested. Then follow the Expression and Dynamique , and the Privelège package appears to be the ultimate. Not everyone has this option lists all of sorely needed, which is why Renault also offers two special versions: the Bose and Silver Edition. Bose Edition is naturally equipped with an equally sound system that results in a high-quality sound and a plethora of speakers. The Silver Edition provides a platinum gray metallic on the outside and inside a similar color for the seats and interior. With this release prices sharply focuses primarily on the Renault lease customers.

The suitcase also has two extra seats hidden, which together or separately form the third row of seats. This last row is only for children to play, as the legroom expire no further than 10 inches. Without the sixth and seventh seat Grand Scenic provides a total 440 liters of luggage when we go for the maximum number of seats, this reduces to a much too small suitcase in which there is no room left for luggage. It is so much to choose between lots of luggage or seats. If the payload priority you can be the second row seats fold down, allowing 2,240 liters free space. I regret only that the Grand Scenic does not have a level loading surface features, but larger objects are still easy.



If you want an identical car as the one which we were staying, then you lose a good € 36,000, which is obviously not a little, but luckily you get there a lot in return. Options we would recommend you do the cruise, the leather seats, panoramic sunroof and navigation system. Known fact that system worked very well and always brought us in the right location. The first time the user wants to feel a bit uneasy, but after a while you will certainly get away with.

Competitors for this premium family car, the Ford S-Max , Althea XL Seat, Opel Zafira and Mazda 5. But his main counterpart is from the same country, the Citroën C4 Picasso. All these cars are pretty similar in price, equipment and capacity, so it is especially looking for the model that perfectly matches your needs. The S-Max, Zafira and Citroen C4 also just got a facelift, so if you have doubts about a purchase you should also look good this golden quartet scrutinize.



The Renault Grand Scenic has literally and figuratively amaze. The French with their high Scenic offer a beautiful car with which you both at home and at work you forward. Both the quality and the handling and consumption score high points all in all it is. If we need to do to be really hard to find weaknesses we should not refer to a flat load floor when we all seats fold down third row seats that are only suitable for small children and a powerless diesel slip. 3 But these flaws do certainly not down to his total evaluation, because the Grand Scenic is highly recommended for both business and family transportation.

Overview:
+ Interior
+ Powerful 2.0 dCi
+ Smooth ride
+ More premium equipment levels

- Lack of space at the third row seats
- No flat load
- Feeble 1.5 dCi
