What is it? The Scenic nameplate first appeared on a Megane-based mini-MPV back in 1996. Since then, it’s gone through three model generations, finally landing on this 2018 model. But the times have shifted, and so Renault can’t simply keep producing a better version of its original MPV design – family buyers of today want their cars to be more practical, stylish and safe than ever. Most crucially for Renault, they also don’t really want an MPV – they’d rather a rugged SUV instead. So, even for Renault (whos name has been synonymous with the people-carrier since the Espace of 1984), attracting buyers to the Scenic is tricky.
