2017 Renault Scenic Geneva leak-01

While the 2017 Renault Scenic may be officially debuting at the Geneva motor show, the organisers have accidentally posted an image of the compact MPV in its full form. Although the image has since been taken down from the motor show’s website, this is the new Scenic, without a doubt.

The Scenic will be based on the Renault-Nissan Alliance’s modular CMF platform shared with the Megane. To some extent, the 2017 Scenic’s design has been inspired by the Renault R-Space concept, which made an appearance in 2011. At the same time, it does sport a front that’s pretty similar to the Renault Captur.

There’s a large Renault badge and a unique front grille, along with a sculpted hood. Apart from that, the compact MPV, in a metallic orange paint scheme, possesses an interestingly-styled shoulder line, chrome elements, a gloss black roof as well as two-tone turbine-style alloy rims.

Although we don’t get to see the inside, it can be assumed that the Scenic will likely feature a minimalistic but upmarket interior, similar to the Renault Megane and Talisman. It’s also likely to get the new R-Link 2 infotainment system with an upright 8.7-inch capacitive touchscreen display.

Expect the same variety of engines as the hatchback – ranging from 100 PS up to 205 PS. This includes petrol variants that start from 1.2 litres and 1.6 litres and diesel units with displacements of 1.5 litre and 1.6 litres. Transmission options will likely be a six-speed manual or a seven-speed Efficient Dual Clutch (EDC) unit, depending on engines.
