Our spies caught this prototype testing under a very unflattering plastic bag disguise, thwarting our attempts to see the latest design from Patrick le Quément.
The new midi-MPV is due in showrooms in 2009, a few months after the Megane hatch – and it is believed that the Megane points to the new look being prepared for the Scenic.
It'll be an evolution of today's look, pepped up with a new nose, fresh surface treatments and less of the 'wiggling bum' look pioneered on the current Scenic.
Reports say there will be two versions of Renault's new mid-sized people carrier: a five-seater Scenic and an extended-wheelbase Grand Scenic with seven pews.
Design-wise both cars will share less with each other than today’s two variants. Expect a new generation of sliding seat origami to offer intelligent stowage solutions for limbs and luggage.
The current price of the Renault Grand Scenic is $40,490. The normal Scenic was not renewed for a MY08 model in Australia.
