This car has been superseded by a newer model, click here to go to the latest Renault Scenic review.

Parkers overall rating: 4 out of 5 4.0

Renault is one of the industry leaders in safety and the Scenic comes with front, side and curtain airbags as standard as well as electronic stability control and Isofix child seat mounting points. Most Renaults have scored top results in official independent crash tests and the Scenic is just as impressive.

The Scenic is a good load carrier with up to 522 litres of storage space in the boot with the rear seats slid to their foremost position. It's helped further by a low loading height and a tailgate more than a metre wide. Renault has calculated 86 litres of stowage space in the cabin, including four under-floor compartments and drawers under the front and outer rear seats.

Some models have a centre console that is large enough to hold a 1.5-litre drinks bottle. There are 12v power sockets in the front row, rear row and luggage compartment and the individual seats in the second row can be removed.
