Renault Scenic range introduces all-new 1.3-litre petrol engine

Scenic and Grand Scenic models gain four-cylinder unit offering 113bhp or 138bhp

Renault has introduced an all-new 1.3-litre petrol engine to its ranks via the Scenic and its larger brother, the Grand Scenic.

The Energy TCe unit is a turbocharged four-cylinder available in two specifications. The first produces 113bhp and 162lb ft of torque, while the second provides 138bhp and 177lb ft. Both versions offer a claimed 52.3mpg and output 122g/km of CO2 in the Scenic, with the larger Grand Scenic offering up to 51.4mpg and as little as 124g/km of CO2.

The 1.3-litre engine, which uses a direct fuel injection system pressurised to 250-bar, comes available with a manual gearbox or Renault’s dual-clutch EDC automatic. Like the rest of the engine range, drive is sent exclusively to the front wheels.

Scenic prices start at £22,005 for the lower power output engine, while the more potent unit commands £24,005. Buyers after a larger Grand Scenic with the new powerplant will have to spend from £23,505; 138bhp versions require £25,805.

Renault also recently used its latest Scenic range to introduce a new hybrid assist powertrain. That system mates a dCi 110 1.5-litre diesel engine to an electric motor producing 10kW (13bhp). The two models are claimed to return up to 80.7mpg combined and emit 94g/km of CO2.
