The all-new 2020 Renault Scenic is a compact MPV that offers great exterior design and very comfortable interior. Scenic’s styling is closer to the SUV than to the actual MPV. One of the best-looking models in the segment will arrive once again, however, with minor upgrades only.
Scenic is present for over two decades now. French carmaker provided the all-new model for Scenic’s 20th anniversary two years ago. Since then, the Scenic MPV is the same vehicle as its predecessor. The same will happen once again. That means the 2020 Scenic will stay intact. The interior will remain modern and upscale.
2020 Renault Scenic Borrows some Cues From the Megane and Kadjar models
The arriving 2020 Renault Scenic is one of the most practical MPVs on the market. The exterior design is borrowed from the Renault Megane hatchback, however, the styling is still SUV-like. The striking exterior looks gorgeous thanks to the company’s lineup of crossovers and SUVs. Plenty of stuff is borrowed from the Kadjar SUV.
There won’t be significant upgrades for the 2020 model. That means the front end still sports wide grille and modern headlights. The LED Pure Vision Technology is present once again and it offers c-shaped inserts. To the sides, 20-inch wheels are standard and the new model will get additional chrome trims. On the other hand, the rear part will remain.
