Renault Scenic

Introduced at the 1996 motor show, the Scenic was the first minivan designed for the M1 segment.

Spaciousness and modularity were the two watchwords by which the Scenic was designed.

Compact on the outside but huge on the inside, the Scenic was an accomplished concept:

With tilting rear side seats, shelves for the passengers and multiple storage areas under the seats and in the floor, the Scenic was a "car for life and for living".  Clever use was made of all the available space, making for a more comfortable on-board experience.

Released in late 1996, the Scenic rounded out Renault's family of successful minivans, following on from the Espace in 1984 and the Twingo in 1993. With more than a two-year head start on its direct competitors, it met with great success in France and was even voted "car of the year" in 1997.

The Scenic was also an international commercial success that created a new segment, "compact minivans".
