Renault Scenic Xmod prices announced
The new Xmod family car will come in two well-equipped trim levels, with pricing starting below that of the standard Renault Scenic at £19,155 and the Renault Grand Scenic which currently starts at £20,355.
With the Scenic Xmod Renault has aimed to give its recognisable family car a more aggressive appearance, whilst retaining its trademark practicality and ease-of-use. Helping to make the Xmod stand out are new exterior changes including the unique wheel designs and striking front and rear bumpers, plus the black roof bars.
Boot capacity is increased from the standard Scenic on the Xmod to 555 litres with the rear seats slid forward, rising to 1,870 with the rear seats removed completely, one of the biggest storage spaces in the MPV class. Also, as much as 86 litres of additional stowage space are cleverly spread around the cabin.
The basic Expression+ trim Scenic Xmod is available with two engine choices. These comprise of a 1.6-litre VVT petrol unit and a 1.5-litre dCi diesel, both with 110bhp.

These engines are also available on the higher-level Dynamique TomTom trim, which also gets a 1.2-litre TCe petrol unit with outputs of 115bhp or 130bhp. With the higher-level trim the dCi diesel and the TCe engine can be both specified with stop-start engine technology.
The diesel-powered Scenic Xmod is also available with an Electronic Dual Clutch (EDC) transmission; otherwise a manual gearbox is used as standard.
The Scenic Xmod in the Dynamique TomTom trim with stop-start engine technology is the most efficient model in the new MPV's range. In this set-up the family car has an official combined fuel economy of 68.9mpg.
A useful driving feature on the new Scenic Xmod is the advanced traction control system, called Grip Xtend. This is coupled with the Xmod's mud and snow tyres, for all year round use, featuring specific tread patterns which aid the evacuation of mud, snow and sand in more difficult driving conditions.
The Renault Scenic Xmod is available to order now at showrooms in the UK including Perrys Renault Dealership in Aylesbury.
