Renault’s next-generation Scenic will challenge conventions which has a radical overhaul, says design boss Laurens van den Acker
The next-generation Renault Scenic must be reinvented as a more practical, more modern vehicle or ‘die’ according to the firm’s design boss, Laurens van den Acker.
Speaking to Autocar at the Frankfurt motor show, van den Acker said: “I feel the Scenic is usually due an overhaul – a radical change. Remember Renault invented the segment yet then launched evolutions of the theme from the second in addition to third generations of the cars. During in which time the segment has come under serious pressure, to the point in which we must reinvent the Scenic or let the idea die.”
Hinting in which the Scenic may follow the route of various other MPVs into becoming more of a crossover shape, van den Acker said the completely new design would likely “challenge the sector.”
“There’s still a long way to go, yet once Scenic is usually out there in addition to our D Crossover next year we’ll be in a position to start thinking about renewing in addition to reinventing.
the idea’s hard, when you are used to starting revolutions, to think about keeping established codes fresh each time, yet I think the key will be for us to mix the idea up as we have done already. Clio was faithful to the sector’s codes, Captur was more innovative.
“Kadjar evolved what Capture had done yet hasn’t challenged any established practices, whereas completely new Scenic will challenge the sector for sure. Talisman is usually very traditional, Espace is usually something completely new. We can mix these ideas up.
We still have a long way to go in my view. Yes, we’ll have an all-completely new range soon, in addition to evolving in which brings a completely new mindset, yet I don’t see the end of the revolution at Renault just yet.”
The completely new Scenic is usually scheduled to be launched at the Geneva motor show in March 2016, before going on sale from the UK later next year.
