Renault has a good reputation for making practical yet stylish people carriers and the latest Grand Scenic continues that tradition.

It comes with seven seats as standard, while the practical interior is spacious and full of family-friendly features including almost endless amounts of storage. It's also good to drive and extremely refined on longer journeys with a smooth ride and a quiet cabin.

Renault doesn't have the greatest reputation for reliability, but the Grand Scenic feels much better built than previous models. It's also very safe with a five-star Euro NCAP rating while generous equipment levels and a range of refined engines help make it one of the best people carriers around.

In February 2012 the Grand Scenic was updated with a number of design changes as well as a selection of cleaner and more fuel efficient diesel engines.

A further, more significant facelift arrived in summer 2013 with a bold new nose and a simplified model range.
