Renault has restructured its line-up for the Scenic, Grand Scenic and Koleos models along what it calls its EasyLife format, reducing the number of model choices but improving overall specifications.
The Scenic and Grand Scenic models are now offered in three versions – Play, Iconic and Signature. Meanwhile, the Koleos is now only available in two trim levels – Iconic and GT Line.
Improving the scenery on Scenic
On both the Scenic and Grand Scenic, standard equipment on all models includes 20-inch alloy wheels, a seven-inch infotainment display with smartphone connectivity, climate control and rear parking sensors.
The mid-range Iconic adding front sensors, the R-Link2 infotainment system and a sliding centre console.
For the top-end Signature trim, Renault offers a head-up display, panoramic sunroof and one-touch folding rear seats – with the Grand Scenic getting the system for both the second and third row.
Scenic customers can choose between a 1.3-litre 140hp petrol engine or a 1.5-litre 120hp diesel – both of which are paired to a six-speed manual transmission.
More kit for Koleos
For the Koleos, Renault fits the base Iconic trim with a reversing camera alongside front and rear parking sensors, blind spot warning, climate control, a seven-inch touchscreen with R-Link2, partial leather upholstery, 19-inch alloys and automatic lights and wipers.
GT Line models build on this with LED headlights, leather upholstery, heated front seats, an automatic tailgate and a nine-inch touchscreen.
Only one engine is provided with the Koleos – a 2.0-litre diesel producing 175hp, paired up to a seven-speed automatic with either two- or four-wheel drive.
The revamped Scenic line-up starts from £21,390 and £23,190 for the Grand Scenic – a reduction of £620 on the previous starting prices. The Koleos starts from £27,495, which is £550 less than before.
Renault has opened the order books for the revised Scenic and Grand Scenic range, while prospective Koleos customers will have to wait till November.
