•Scénic XMOD will be one of the new models revealed at the Geneva Motor Show in early March.
Crossover on the outsideSporty and elegant, Scénic XMOD winningly combines the outdoor cues of a crossover wîth the refined world of an MPV. With a raised ground clearance and special alloy wheels, the car features an expressive crossover-inspired design: special front and rear bumpers, sill guards and chrome-finish roof bars. The new front end is also more expressive, incorporating Renault's new design identity and signature LED daytime running lights.
Technology on the inside
Inside Scénic XMOD, the driver enjoys a cockpit-like environment wîth an exclusive fixed centre console and an array of controls. The rotary control for the all-new Extended Grip traction control system and the multi-directional joystick control for the multimedia system are both easy to reach. Featuring a TFT (Thin Film Transistor) digital display, the dashboard is dominated by the fully connected Renault R-Link touchscreen multimedia system. The top-of-the-range version of XMOD includes a flat-bottomed §teering wheel, aluminium-capped pedals and gear lever knob and new interior appointments. Rounding out the offer is new stitched upholstery and Leather/Alcantara Pack.
Extended grip underneath
Scénic XMOD is the first vehicle in the Renault range to feature the all-new Extended Grip system. This advanced traction control system enables the vehicle to grip the roadconfidently under difficult driving conditions (snow, mud, sand, etc.). Manually activating the rotary control positioned on the centre console, the driver can choose from three types of assistance.
In 'Expert' mode, Extended Grip manages the braking system, while leaving the driver in full control of the engine torque. The 'Road' mode offers conventional traction control settings. It automatically reconnects at speeds of over 40kph. The 'Loose Ground' mode optimises braking control and engine torque control as a function of available grip.
Plus all the DNA of Renault Scénic
Scénic XMOD retains the key features which have made Scénic the benchmark in the compact MPV §egmènt. Its boot capacity is up to 555 litres, one of the biggest in its class. No less than 71 litres of additional stowage space are cleverly spread around the cabin. Scénic XMOD offers simple, effective and fast modularity: the seats are independent, folding and removable to provide a host of seating configurations for the occupants. Renault Scénic XMOD will be produced at the Douai plant in France.
Renault Scénic XMOD will be revealed in a world premiere on March 5, 2013 at the Geneva Motor Show and available for test drives shortly after.
