Renault Scenic XMOD Revealed Ahead of Geneva Debut

Renault has redesigned the outgoing Scenic MPV as a crossover and unveils it as Scénic XMOD ahead of its public debut next month at the Geneva Motor Show.

The Scenic XMOD has a raised ground clearance, new special alloy wheels, new front and rear bumpers, sill guards and chrome-finish roof bars. The new front incorporates Renault’s new design identity and signature LED daytime running lights.

Even though the Scenic XMOD has the looks of a crossover it is still a front-wheel vehicle, though it does come with a all-new Grip Xtend traction control system which can be controlled with a rotary knob located on the center console.

The Grip Xtend system enables the vehicle to grip the road better under difficult driving conditions. The system has three different modes: Road, Loose Ground and Expert.

New Scénic XMOD has a boot capacity up to 555 litres and no less than 71 litres of additional stowage space are cleverly spread around the cabin.

In addition to showing the Scenic XMOD in Geneva, Renault will also unveil the new Grand Scenic there.

More details will be revealed closer to market launch.
