The approaching 2019 Renault Scenic is a compact MPV that perfectly mixes practicality with the family-friendly features. Scenic celebrated its 20th anniversary two years ago and this model really defined the MPV segment. Now, the 2019 Scenic will hit the roads once again and try to define the segment once again.
This time, Scenic comes with a striking exterior that is closer to the regular SUV than the actual MPV. French carmaker will look to beat the gorgeous exterior of the Citroen C4 Picasso. On the other hand, the interior is so modern, that you can’t find competitive rival when it comes to interior. Additionally, Renault says the new Scenic will come with an improved ride quality.
2019 Renault Scenic exterior is based on the Megane hatchback model
The main advantage of the MPVs is their practicality. Perhaps, the 2019 Renault Scenic is the champion in this category. While still based on the Megane hatchback model, Scenic hold beautiful and eye-catching exterior design. The design is clearly inspired by the latest modern crossovers and SUVs. For that reason, plenty of styling cues were drawn from the famous Renault Kadjar model. Generally, the new Scenic will look really stylish and refined.
The grille is wider and the headlights are smaller now. Just as any other Renault’s model, a LED Pure Vision Technology is in the offer and it adds a c-shape insert. More chrome materials and smaller inserts are helping new Scenic to look modern and upscale. Great thing is that the 2019 Scenic will come with 20-inch wheels that are standard on all trim levels.
2019 Renault Scenic interior design and technology
Behind the striking exterior, the 2019 Renault Scenic comes with an incredibly modern and pleasing interior. The cabin is really practical as you can find plenty of storage areas. Moreover, seats are flipping and folding very easy and the technology is astonishing. To be more precise, there is no valid competitor that can rival the interior of the 2019 Scenic.

Back to Scenic, there is room for five passengers, however, you can buy a Grand Scenic model that offers seating for seven persons. Technology is great, the number of buttons is very limited and cabin holds plenty of soft-touch materials.
