Five star safety for the new Scénic

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - MOTORS -

THE All-New Re­nault Scénic sets it­self apart from the crowd with a num­ber of state-of-theart tech­nolo­gies, in­clud­ing ac­tive emer­gency brak­ing with pedes­trian de­tec­tion as stan­dard – a first for ve­hi­cles in its seg­ment.

The re­sult high­lights Re­nault’s com­mit­ment to safety, par­tic­u­larly with the All-New Scénic, which ar­rives in the UK later this year. The All-New Scénic stands out with a 90% score for adult oc­cu­pant pro­tec­tion, 82% for chil­dren and 67% for pedes­tri­ans.

The new Scénic uses a struc­ture of re­in­forced steel skirts, side mem­bers, wind­screen pil­lars and posts, al­low­ing it to pro­tect oc­cu­pants in­side the safety cell. Parts of it are ‘ul­tra-high elas­tic’, with each square mil­lime­tre able to re­sist up to 120kg of pres­sure while crum­ple zone steel out­side the passenger com­part­ment al­lows for im­pact to be ab­sorbed.

There are two cur­tain airbags for the first and sec­ond rows and two lat­eral airbags in the front. It also has two new-gen­er­a­tion front airbags that make use of adap­tive tech­nol­ogy. Based on sen­sor in­for­ma­tion, airbag in­fla­tion level is adapted for the driver and passenger.

The Scénic is the only ve­hi­cle in the C-MPV seg­ment to of­fer an Ac­tive Emer­gency Brak­ing Sys­tem (AEBS) with pedes­trian de­tec­tion as stan­dard.

To put driv­ers at ease and warn them in the event of risk, All-New Scénic of­fers Hands-free park­ing; Lane De­par­ture Warn­ing (LDW); Lane Keep­ing As­sist (LKA); Adap­tive Cruise Con­trol (ACC); Fa­tigue de­tec­tion warn­ing with tra­jec­tory anal­y­sis; and Ac­tive Emer­gency Brak­ing Sys­tem (AEBS) with pedes­trian de­tec­tion.

Re­nault in­vented the com­pact fam­ily MPV seg­ment in 1996 and the ar­rival of the fourth gen­er­a­tion sig­nals the com­plete re­newal of its new fam­ily car line-up with Kadjar, Mé­gane, Mé­gane Sport Tourer, Scénic and Grand Scénic.

The French man­u­fac­turer now has the new­est model range on sale in Europe. The Scénic and Grand Scénic are each of­fered in four trim lev­els – Ex­pres­sion+, Dy­namiqueNav, Dy­namique S Nav and Signature Nav. Each ver­sion pro­vides a com­pre­hen­sive stan­dard spec­i­fi­ca­tion, ris­ing to the truly lux­u­ri­ous at the top-of-the-range.

All-New Scénic and All-New Grand Scénic are the only ve­hi­cles in the class to re­ceive the Ac­tive Emer­gency Brak­ing Sys­tem (AEBS) with Pedes­trian De­tec­tion as stan­dard.

Even from Ex­pres­sion+, this high-end tech­nol­ogy is com­ple­mented by the Vi­sio ac­tive safety sys­tem pro­vid­ing Lane De­par­ture Warn­ing, Traf­fic Sign Recog­ni­tion and Au­to­matic High/Low Beam head­lamps. An elec­tronic park­ing brake, LED day­time run­ning lights, roof rails (Grand Scénic only), au­to­matic du­al­zone cli­mate con­trol, au­to­matic head­lights and wind­screen wipers, and elec­tri­cally ad­justable heated and fold­ing door mir­rors are fit­ted to ev­ery ver­sion.
