Equipment and handling
In the world of MPV's, the Renault Grand Scenic is a people carrier that is not only very well made, but is a comfortable place to spend time. There's a huge amount of space onboard and three trim levels. Standard kit includes a 7-inch touchscreen for the entertainment system, climate control, keyless entry and rear parking sensors. Other models offer better specification and include all-round parking sensors, which many might find useful in such a large vehicle, while the top model features a head-up display and a larger infotainment touchscreen. The flagship model also features an excellent panoramic sunroof that creates a spacious and airy interior. Around town, the Renault Grand Scenic is an easy car to control and it is agile enough to enjoy - it is particularly good on long journeys with high comfort levels for everybody on board. The Grand Scenic comes with large alloy wheels which some may find cause a distraction when driving quickly over speed bumps but the suspension really does deal with rough roads effectively. There are three rows of seats in this people carrier and a third tow can be removed easily enough to create a larger boot. Essentially, the Renault Grand Scenic offers a practical MPV that is a sound choice for families and is cheap to run and very safe too. The interior consists of hard wearing materials and is designed to carry people in comfort and it is certainly one of the best large cars currently available.
