What's all this about?

We've got some pricing and specification details for the UK line-ups of the two new, closely-related Renault MPVs, the fourth-generation Scenic and Grand Scenic.

OK, give me a starting price and first order date.

Fine: December 1st, 21,445.

Um, OK, expand on that, if you please.

That's better. The Scenic, of course, is a five-seater and the Grand Scenic can accommodate seven. We won't go into full details on the design and chassis - we've done two preview news pieces on each model which explain more - but we will quickly say that there are two 1.2-litre turbocharged TCe petrols (115- or 130hp) and three dCi diesels: a 1.5-litre with 110hp, a 1.6-litre with 130hp and, er... a 1.5-litre again, albeit with a fulsome 160hp. Transmissions are a manual gearbox or an efficient dual clutch (EDC) unit. Following the launch models in December, there will be a Hybrid Assist part-electric option from spring 2017 on the dCi 110 unit. Trim lines follow the same Expression+, Dynamique Nav, Dynamique S Nav and Signature Nav gradings that Renault customers will be familiar with.

What do you get on an Expression+?

Active Emergency Braking System with Pedestrian Detection is standard across the range, bolstering Renault's dedication to safety and proving to be a good start for the Scenic/Grand Scenic twins. Expression+ buyers will also benefit from Visio active safety (incorporating Lane Departure Warning, Traffic Sign Recognition and Automatic High/Low Beam lights), an electronic parking brake, LED daytime running lights, roof rails (on the Grand Scenic only), dual-zone climate control, auto lights and wipers, electrically adjustable, heated and folding door mirrors, a leather steering wheel, 4 x 20W DAB radio, AUX input with Bluetooth, a seven-inch touchscreen for the infotainment, cruise control, a speed limiter and a height adjustable driver's seat. Phew! All that is part of the standard specification on the entry-level model.

Impressive stuff. Can you step me up the range, then?

Sure can. Dynamique Nav brings in parking sensors front and rear, fatigue alert for the driver, a hands-free keycard for entry and exit, five-mode drive profiles, an extra 13-litre storage compartment in the centre console with four USB ports, an Arkamys 3D Sound 4 x 35W DAB radio, R-Link2 infotainment incorporating satnav, rear-seat fold-down tables mounted on the back of the front seats, door mirror puddle lighting and some chrome exterior detailing.

What does the S add to Dynamique Nav?

The screen in the dashboard swells to an 8.7-inch portrait item on the Dynamique S Nav, while a colour head-up display, rear parking camera, panoramic roof, tinted glass in the back and - on the dCi 160 EDC model only - an 11-speaker Bose sound system are drafted in. All sounds very classy.

And the Signature Nav?

Carbon Black leather upholstery with a Nappa leather steering wheel, electrically operated front seats, full LED headlights with a 'See Me Home' function and front foglights with cornering illumination complete the range-topping Signature Nav models.

Sounds comprehensive - are there any options?

Yes, Adaptive Cruise Control, Blind Spot and Safe Distance warnings, Hands-Free Parking and 360-degree parking sensors can all be added, as can six 'high-value' equipment packages.

So, can I ask what the expanded pricing structure is?

Yes, the Scenic Expression+ starts at the 21,445 mentioned above, with the Dynamique Nav beginning at 22,945, the Dynamique S Nav 24,945 and the Signature Nav 26,445. Want the two extra seats of the Grand Scenic? Then add 1,930 to any of the prices above. The most expensive model of all is therefore the Grand Scenic dCi 160 EDC Signature Nav at 32,445.
