New 2016 Renault GRAND SCENIC Exterior Design

Probably the most groundbreaking feature of the new Scénic’s design is the fitment of 20-inch wheels as standard across the range. These narrower wheels (195mm) are both a technological and styling innovation. With a sidewall height of 107mm – equivalent to that of the Scénic 3’s 17-inch tyres – the new Scénic’s tyres ensure a level of ride comfort that is amongst the market’s very best. This bold design choice was a key guiding principle behind the project from the start. Indeed, these large wheels make an active contribution to the car’s balanced proportions and are customisable on demand thanks to a comprehensive choice of rims and inserts, called ‘add-ons’. These rims and add-ons have also been devised to save weight and streamline the car’s aerodynamics, which leads to lower fuel consumption. The unique size of these wheels (195/55 R20), and the fitment of specifically developed tyres for lower energy consumption and enhanced aerodynamic efficiency, also guarantee class-leading rolling resistance.
