In the competition for the market share enjoyed by the Toyota Innova Renault India tried its luck with the Lodgy MPV. The Lodgy did well for sometime before giving into the new Toyota’s Innova Crysta, which reclaimed its old glory.
So, instead of mulling over a facelift of the Lodgy, Renault began contemplating the launch of a completely new and futuristic design and model. With that, it can also get into the premium MPV segment and try its luck there, while also catering to the entry-level MPV segment.
Using underpinnings based on CMF-A platform, shared by the all-successful Renault Kwid, Renault has been developing an MPV that could cater to family utilities. So, for that purpose, Renault India will be bringing in the 2017 Renault Grand Scenic, after debuting the same at the upcoming Paris Motor show.
Media reports claim that Renault has patented the 2017 Grand Scenic in India. The new MPV will share design traits with the next-gen Megane and Captur (Kaptur) SUV.
The Renault Grand Scenic carries a very futuristic, spacious and commanding look. The front fascia is aerodynamic with the sloping windshield adjoining the bonnet. The snubbed front face and the sloping windshield indicate extra room inside the cabin.
The peteled alloys look very aggressive, while it looks trendy and sporty, when seen from any angle. The headlights are sweptback with a good attractive cluster in the front. Side profiles are also attractively lined and shaped, while the rear looks great with the bumper, skid plate, windshield and tail lights.
Expect five and seven seater options with the 2017 Renault Grand Scenic, while interior will sure be spaces in both the options. It is also likely to be powered by a 2.0-litre diesel motor which will likely be making the 150 PS of power and 320 Nm of torque as the Koleos.
