We can see, though, that like the bigger Espace, the new Scenic will feature an airy cabin with the base of the A-pillar pulled well forward and the windscreen slanted back.
As with previous generations, expect the Scenic to share a lot in common with the similarly sized Megane. The second- and third-generation Scenic was available in both short and long wheelbase formats.
The Scenic was withdrawn from the Australian market when stocks of the second generation model sold out in 2009. Given Australia's reluctance to embrace small people movers, it's not a given that Scenic will make the journey down under.
Earlier this year, Renault Australia's managing director, Justin Hocevar, told Car Advice, "I think at this point in time our focus is clearly on Captur, current Koleos and the next-generation Koleos".
The next-generation Megane is scheduled for a local launch in second half of 2016.
