Verdict

The Renault Scenic is one of the most popular people carriers on sale thanks to its blend of sharp looks, comfort and a spacious interior. However the standard model is strictly a five-seater - if you need to carry more then look to the Grand Scenic. Not only is it available with seven seats but as it's longer than the standard car it offers more interior space along with an abundance of storage and some genuinely useful family-friendly features such as Sleep Safe headrests to support the necks of snoozing youngsters.

Unfortunately the middle row of seats don't fold flat as they do in some other people carriers like the Citroen Grand C4 Picasso while some of the materials used in the cabin feel a little cheap - but that doesn't prevent the Grand Scenic from being one of the best people carriers around.
