Renault arguably has the most experience of any manufacturer when it comes to people carriers, as it was the first to market with the van-like Espace in the 1980s.
Fast forward to 2014 and the Espace is gone, leaving the Grand Scenic as the company’s only seven-seat offering in the UK. This is no bad thing, however, as the model exhibits all the qualities that have seen Renault become a firm favourite with family car buyers.
Aside from a third row of seats that fold flat into the boot floor, the Grand Scenic is fitted with a removable second row, meaning it’s just the thing for those trips to the tip.
This practicality combined with a range of punchy yet frugal engines, and an enviable safety record, sees the Grand Scenic remain a highly recommended choice in the MPV market.
