The Renault Scénic is a compact MPV produced by French automaker Renault, the first to be labelled as such in Europe. It is based on the chassis of the Mégane small family car. It became 1997 European Car of the Year on its launch in late 1996.
UK sales of the Scénic began in early 1997, and for the first two years the Scénic was the only compact MPV sold by a mainstream manufacturer in the UK. The Megane Scenic also was awarded 1997 What Car? "Car of the year".
The Scénic II arrived in British showrooms towards the end of 2003 and was a bigger seller than its predecessor.
The Scénic III arrived in British showrooms towards Summer 2009.
