Renault Scenic and Grand Scenic get the Initiale Paris treatment
The automaker's upscale sub-brand keeps on growing
Renault is expanding its Initiale Paris lineup with the Scenic and Grand Scenic minivans.
As with the Initiale Paris versions of the Espace, Talisman, Captur, Clio, and Koleos, the Scenic and Grand Scenic Initiale Paris upscale models combine styling tweaks with an expanded list of standard features that focus on comfort and elegance.
You'll recognize the Scenic/Grand Scenic Initiale Paris thanks to the star-pattern grille, unique 20-inch wheels, Initiale Paris lettering beneath the Renault logo, LED fog lights with cornering function, and the exclusive Amethyst Black paint finish.
The Initiale Paris treatment consists of even more upgrades inside, where the compact minivans receive Initiale Paris-badged chrome door sill guards, black or grey-patterned Nappa leather upholstery, Nappa leather-wrapped gear lever and steering wheel, power-adjustable heated seats with massaging function and enveloping headrests, as well as a dedicated color finish for the center console.
These features come in addition to those of the Intens trim level upon which Initiale Paris versions are based. Highlights of the Intens grade include a Bose audio system, color head-up display, and Easy Park Assist, among other things.
The Renault Scenic and Grand Scenic Initiale Paris will be available with the most powerful engines in the lineup: the Energy TCe 130 gasoline unit with manual transmission, the Energy dCi 130 diesel with a manual gearbox, and the Energy dCi 160 with EDC dual clutch transmission.
Renault will start taking orders for the new Scenic and Grand Scenic versions on June 7 in France, with the cars arriving in dealerships in September. Prices start from €33,200 for the Scenic Initiale Paris with the Energy TCe 130 engine and €33,800 for the Grand Scenic Initiale Paris fitted with the same power plant.
