JUST

A

SCENIC

Designed initially as a “roomy” derivative of Mégane, the compact Mégane Scénic MPV emerged in 1996. Due to its commercial success, it became independent (in terms of its name in any case) in 1999 as it became “just” Scénic.

A FAMILY

AFFAIR

While Renault Mégane already offered a wide variety of body types rarely seen at the time (5 doors, 4 doors, estate, coupe, cabriolet), Renault offered a compact MPV variant, unprecedented on the French market: Renault Mégane Scénic. The target audience? Families, as proven by the example of the 3 independent and modular rear seats.

KIDS

CLUB

In addition to the 3 independent rear seats, Renault Scénic organised its rear space to easily accommodate children (and their parents). Shelves located on the backs of the front seats made it look like the interior of a plane, and storage hatches in the floor converted into hiding places for children’s toys.

WINNING

MPV

After its launch in 1996, inspired by the Scénic concept at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1991, Renault Mégane won the car of the year award in 1997. The compact MPV pulled off the ultimate achievement even before its separate career as Mégane.
