Renault Scenic vs Rivals

Provided By:

The market for compact MPVs is blossoming! Buyers looking for a family car with extra versatility have never had it so good, with a raft of new models recently hitting showrooms.

First up is the Renault Scenic. We’ve already been impressed by the seven-seat Grand version, which saw off some tough rivals to win its first group test.

The five-seater sits on the same platform derived from the Mégane, and has a similarly flexible cabin, so promises to be just as good. We test a mid-spec Dynamique model with a 103bhp 1.5-litre diesel engine, priced £17,695.

However, the Renault isn’t the only French newcomer in this sector. Arch-rival Peugeot has just revealed its bold 3008, which aims to blend a rugged off-roader image with compact people carrier practicality.

It doesn’t officially arrive in dealers until November, but Auto Express got its hands on a left-hand-drive model. No diesels were available, so we test a range-topping 1.6 THP petrol car in Exclusive trim.

SEAT has just given its stylish Altea a mid-life makeover, improving the looks and quality. And while practicality is still the model’s main focus, the brand’s sporting roots haven’t been forgotten – our Altea is the most powerful car here, with its thumping 2.0-litre diesel giving 168bhp.

Setting the benchmark in the class is Citroen’s C4 Picasso. It’s one of our favourite compact MPVs, with its clever cabin and eye-catching design. Can it hold on to its crown in the face of these fresh competitors?
