Unveiled at the 1991 Frankfurt Motor Show, Scénic Concept Car was Renault’s first introduction to the MPV category. The diamond brand would go on to release this model across several ranges.
Renault Scénic Concept Car was the first MPV in the range of mid-sized family vehicles. Its remarkable exterior included rear-hinged doors on the right side, while its unique interior created a cosy atmosphere equipped with ample storage. The centre sliding console housed audiovisual equipment with an infra-red remote control system. The seats adjusted every which way and included a removable knapsack to bring along on a walk.
Renault Scénic Concept Car’s super well-equipped interior featured innovations that would appear later on in production, like a navigation system, rear-view cameras, and sensors to detect driver fatigue. In addition to the revolutionary air conditioning, the navigation assistance and dynamic load management system helped Renault cultivate its reputation as an innovator.
Unique concept, unique sounds: Renault Scénic Concept Car.
Designed to attract a younger female drivers, Renault Scénic Concept Car is powered by a 150 hp 4-cylinder engine. Equipped with an electronic control automatic gearbox, the concept car features permanent all-wheel drive, for optimum driving comfort.
Renault Scénic Concept Car stands out as an original. In particular, it featured 5 different coloured seats, topped with carpet featuring a fanciful world map, as if to invite you to travel. Renault Scénic Concept Car is also asymmetrical with its doors that opened in an unusual way: passengers entered from the right side only, and the lack of B-pillar between the front and rear seat rows made for easier access.
