This is Renault’s first foray into Hybrid Assist technology, with the brand claiming that the new powertrain improves the emissions, economy and performance of the dCi 110 engine.
Working in combination with the internal combustion engine, the Hybrid Assist’s 10kW electric motor is powered by a 48-volt 150Wh battery. According to Renault, this returns CO2 emissions of 94g/km and fuel economy of 80.7mpg.
20-inch alloy wheels and a 8.7-inch touchscreen are as standard. The usual three trim levels, Dynamique Nav, Dynamique Nav S and Signature Nav, are available.
The Scenic received a five-star Euro NCAP safety rating when tested in 2016 and has Emergency Brake Assist, ABS with Electronic Brake-force Distribution, Electronic Stability Control and Hill Start Assist as standard.
The Scenic range with dCi Hybrid Assist is available to order now from £25,055.
