Renault's new Scenic Conquest compact MPV, first unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, is now available to order in the UK before it goes on sale in June.
Customers will be able to choose from two engines at launch: a 1.9 dCi 130 and 2.0 VVT 136. Renault will add another two engines to the line-up in September, but hasn’t announced what they will be yet.
The French manufacturer thinks the Conquest will be popular with outdoor types, combining the worlds of the SUV and MPV, much like Ford’s popular S-Max model.
Standard equipment includes ESP, longitudinal roof bars, rear parking proximity sensors, 16-inch alloy wheels, ABS (anti-lock braking system) with EBD (electronic brake distribution) and emergency brake assist, air conditioning, front and rear electric windows, leather steering wheel and gearshift knob.
Renault has developed a cycling pack accessory kit, which includes roof cross bars, bike rack and protective boot lining. Pricing for this pack will be confirmed soon.
Prices for the initial two-model Scénic Conquest models are £17,945 for the 2.0 VVT 136 and £19,135 for the 1.9 dCi 130. The new trim level will not be offered in five- or seven-seat versions of Grand Scénic.
