History of Renault Scenic / Renault Scenic
In September 1996, the Renault Scenic compact van was created on the basis of the Megane model. Today, due to the combination of consumer qualities, it is one of the most popular classes of cars in the whole world. With its small size, the Scenic golf-class model has such typical minivan advantages as excellent visibility due to a high seating position, a large internal volume and a large number of options for transforming the cabin. While maintaining excellent maneuverability and ease of handling. In a word, Scenic successfully combines the best qualities of passenger cars with the versatility and practicality of minivans.
In the basic configuration, it is equipped with an in-line 4-cylinder engine with a working volume of 1.4 liters, and a power of 75 hp.
In the spring of 1999, the design of the model was updated. The Scenic II was the first European high-capacity station wagon in the measured C class and was even awarded the title of “European Car of the Year 1997”. The distinctive features of the updated Scenic are: extended headlights, a separately opening rear door glass and many interesting solutions such as a 15-liter mobile armrest box that can move from front passengers to rear passengers, or a front seat that can be turned into a flat and level table.
The main task facing the designers of Renault was to combine the versatility of a minivan with the comfort of a sedan. This was achieved by increasing the wheelbase to 2685 mm (105 mm) and the track to 1514 mm (64 front / 30 rear). The luggage compartment has also become larger. 430/1840 liters versus 410/1800 liters from its predecessor. It is noteworthy that the Scenic II has a rear window that opens separately from the entire door, which makes it easy to load light luggage into the trunk.
The cars have achieved a high level of noise and heat insulation, the interior is very bright, thanks to wide windows and a large glass sunroof.
Ergonomics engineers changed the driver’s seating position, making it more comfortable than its predecessor: they reduced the height of the cushion from 390 to 355 mm, and the gearshift lever was placed 51 mm closer to the driver. The steering wheel, which has adjustable tilt and reach, is more vertical than the previous model. Another small difference from the previous generation model is the lever scheme for adjusting the tilt of the seat backs, while the previous Scenic had drum-type adjusters.
The driver’s seat has a high seating position and good visibility. The latter is provided by heated side mirrors, an aspherical rear-view mirror and an automatic wiper control system.
The range of engines is borrowed from the Megane family: 16-valve petrol engines with a volume of 1.4. 2.0 liters are adjacent to two diesel units. Power units are equipped with a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission. The all-wheel drive Scenic is equipped with a 2.0-liter petrol engine producing 140 hp. and a turbocharged diesel engine with a Common Rail fuel supply system with a capacity of 102 hp.
The Scenic has a McPherson-type front suspension and a four-torsion rear suspension for greater stability.
Scenic is one of the safest cars in its class. Provides maximum protection to its passengers in a collision. The highest level of vehicle safety is confirmed by the results of crash tests Euro NCAP.
The all-new Scenic II design is designed to absorb impact energy. The high ability of the car to absorb and dissipate kinetic energy is achieved through the use of new steels and materials, which made it possible to transform the front, rear and side parts of the body into highly efficient programmable deformation zones. Careful calculation of the trajectories of displacement of parts and assemblies in the engine compartment made it possible to achieve maximum folding of the front end of the body and at the same time to exclude the possibility of their displacement into the passenger compartment.
Additionally, a system of preventing the rotation of the struts is applied, which reduces the likelihood of the front door breaking off on impact. And, finally, with the help of amplifiers, the rigidity of the thresholds is increased, which ensures the maximum transfer of forces when the wheel hits the threshold.
The Scenic II is equipped with a third-generation Renault protection system, which includes dual-volume airbags and seat belts with two pretensioners in the front seats. The adaptability of the system allows you to adjust the action of safety elements depending on the force of the impact. In addition, the front seat belts have a 400 kg force limiter and (innovative on the Scénic II and Mégane II) a 600 kg lap belt force limiter.
Finally, the Scenic II is equipped with two side chest airbags integrated in the front seats and two inflatable curtains to protect the head of both adults and children in the front and rear seats. The rear seats have three-point seat belts with 600 kg force limiters and side seat belt pretensioners. There is a three-point Isofix anchorage in the outboard seats of the rear seat for setting the child seat in a backward or forward-facing position.
The Renault Scenic II minivan attracts attention with its modern design, functionality, extraordinary interior transformation capabilities and the latest technical solutions.
In March 2003, the new Renault Scenic was presented at the Geneva Motor Show. The car is built on the latest generation Megane platform. From the same model, he borrowed a general new design style: a sloping, even front, wider headlights, a similar design to the Megane model of the rear, with a protruding rear overhang and an almost vertical rear window. The new Scenic has an interesting feature. the reverse tilt of the rear pillar, thanks to which the developers were able to move the rear seats a little back, thereby increasing the free space for rear passengers.

The interior was designed specifically for the Scenic model. Control of the main functions of the car is placed on the center of the dashboard, there is also a gear shift joystick. The main Scenic instruments are made in the form of liquid crystal screens and are stretched over the dashboard. The main buttons and switches are to the right of the steering wheel, on the steering column there is a key card hole and a starter button. Already in the basic equipment, the new Scenic is completed in the highest class: on all versions of ABS, Brake Assist, stability control system, tire pressure sensors.
Scenic of the second generation is available in two versions: with a five-seater and a seven-seater body. At the same time, the more spacious version received a wheelbase extended by 40 centimeters and is called Grand Scenic.
The engine lineup now looks like this: a 1.4-liter with 80 hp, which was the same on the previous model, a 1.6-liter with 115 hp. and a 2-liter 136 hp; diesel engines. 1.5-liter dCi, 80 hp and a 1.9-liter dCi with 120 hp. Powerful diesel engines are mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox, and the petrol and 1.5-liter dCi engines are mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. 4-speed automatic only offered as an option.
In 2006, Renault carried out a restyling of the second generation Scenic. The changes were mostly cosmetic in nature. the line of power units remained the same. Outwardly, the updated Scenic is easiest to identify by the headlights with lenses on the head optics and a more angular bumper. Although not a connoisseur of French cars, it will be very difficult to distinguish a restyled car from an old one. The salon has new materials for finishing.
In 2009, sales of the third generation Renault Scenic started. The car, as before, looks quite original. Particularly interesting are the taillights. if earlier Scenic and Grand Scenic differed externally only in the size of the luggage compartment windows, now it is much easier to distinguish them. On the “simple” Scenic, the “boomerangs” of the lanterns from the rear pillar go to the door, and on the version with the Grand prefix. to the wings.
The car is based on the Megane III platform. The car became 80 mm longer (4.34 meters) and added 20 mm in the wheelbase, which had a positive effect on passenger comfort. The car interior can easily accommodate five passengers. The occupants of the second row of seats, instead of a sofa, have three separate chairs mounted on sleds, and passengers sitting directly behind the front seats have convenient folding tables at their disposal. By the way, Scenic III was the leader in the class in such an important parameter as the knee-level space in the rear of the cabin.
The floor level is 15 mm higher and the steering wheel is more vertical (2.4 degrees). these changes have a positive effect on the ergonomics of the driver’s workplace. The driver’s seat has the largest height adjustment. 70 mm, and lumbar adjustment is standard on even the most budget Scenic models. The main plus of the third generation Scenic for the driver is the huge glazing area, which provides excellent visibility. The displacement of the front pillars back contributed to improved visibility. horizontally, the sector is 87 degrees (8), and vertically. 31 (15).
The presence of “glove compartments” for small things is one of the main indicators of the practicality of a minivan, and in this respect Renault Scenic has always been at its best. Literally every inch of interior space is used to accommodate small items. The total capacity of niches, s and other secluded places is 86 liters. The largest containers. four of 4.5 liters each. are located under the front and rear seats. Under the floor, in the front of the cabin, there are two 2.5-liter niches, and under the feet of the rear seat passengers there are 3.2-liter containers. Another 11 liters is provided by the main “glove compartment”, equipped with lighting and a cooler, and the 9-liter space under the center armrest is divided into two compartments. a smaller one for small items, and a larger one for 1.5-liter bottles. For safe transportation of goods, there are clips installed on the center console and in the trunk.
Luggage compartment capacity has increased by 10% compared to the second generation model, and now ranges from 555 to 1637 liters. And with the back of the front passenger seat lowered in the minivan, you can transport long items (up to 2.5 meters).
The list of equipment has expanded significantly. The basic equipment includes electric power steering, on-board computer, halogen daytime running lights with washers, chip card, steering wheel, height-adjustable driver’s seat, air conditioning, front electric windows, electric and heated side mirrors.
In addition, the database also contains a CD / MP3 audio system, ABS, AFU, EBD, a central locking with remote control and an adaptation package for Russian conditions, which includes preparing the engine for starting in cold conditions, a suspension with increased ground clearance, an anti-gravel coating underbody and extended warranty. In the more expensive Expression configuration, in addition to the basic equipment, the car will receive rear power windows, heated front seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel and gearshift lever, cruise control, automatic parking brake, as well as light and rain sensors.
The selection of engines is made with an emphasis on diesel engines. The 1.5-liter dCi is available in several versions (85, 105 and 110 hp), and the most powerful of them, equipped with a filter for solids and an injector for the exhaust, complies with the Euro5 standard. The average consumption of a 110-horsepower diesel engine with a torque of 240 Nm is 5.1 liters. The top position in the diesel range is occupied by engines with a working volume of 1.9 (130 hp) and 2.0 liters (150 and 160 hp), which are combined with a 6-speed manual transmission and a 6-speed “automatic”. The most modest 110-horsepower gasoline engine (1.6 liters) runs on gasoline, E85 bioethanol and LPG. A 1.4-liter petrol engine develops a power of 130 hp, and a 2-liter, paired with a continuously variable variator, produces 10 more “horses”.
In 2012, the model has undergone a restyling. The changes begin with a redesign of the front end with a different front bumper and different headlights with LED daytime running lights. The taillights have changed completely: their lower ends are bent in different directions. Chrome elements have appeared on the front of the air intakes, side moldings and the tailgate. In addition, several new design wheel sets have been added. There are two new body colors: Grenat Red and Majorelle Blue.
The comfortable, easily transformable interior has become somewhat more modern. The merit in this is two bright color displays hidden under the visor of the front panel, one of which plays the role of a dashboard, the other as a multimedia navigation system. In the interior trim, the designers combine contrasting colors, which noticeably enliven the interior of the car. Thus, even a dark interior is transformed by white stitching on the seats and door panels.
There are two new diesel engines. The first 1.5-liter 110-horsepower unit develops 260 Nm of torque. Compared to its predecessor, it consumes 12% less fuel. only 4.1 liters per hundred kilometers, while its maximum torque has increased by 20 Nm. According to the manufacturer, this engine has a record low CO2 emissions of 105 g / km. The second 1.6-liter engine develops 130 hp. and 320 Nm of torque. It is 20% more fuel efficient than the 1.9-liter engine of the same power, which it replaced. Such a motor consumes 4.4 liters per “hundred”. Carbon dioxide emissions per kilometer are 114 g. Both diesel engines have a start-stop system and an energy recovery system during braking. The new 1.2-liter petrol power unit with 115 horsepower is 20% more economical than the previous 110-horsepower 1.6-liter engine and emits 135 grams of CO2 per kilometer.
The basic equipment (Authentique) Renault Scenic 2012 model year includes adaptive electric power steering, on-board computer, head light with Follow me home function, headlight washers, fog lights, chip card, Start / Stop button instead of a key, steering wheel adjustment in two planes, driver’s seat height adjustment, air conditioning, CD / MP3 audio system with four speakers and a steering column joystick, electric drive and heated side mirrors, impulse front electric windows, ABS with Brake Assist and EBD, ESP with Hill Start Assist, six airbags. Isofix child seat anchorage system.
The car in the Expression configuration, in addition to the basic version, has a leather steering wheel and gearshift lever, cruise control, an automatic parking brake, a TFT dashboard display, an adjustable driver’s seat lumbar support, aircraft type tables, a CD / MP3 audio system 4x15W with Bluetooth, USB, Jack and steering column joystick, rear power windows, rain and light sensors.
The main innovation of the Renault Scenic will be an option called the Visio System, which is a system that monitors the driver’s condition and provides night vision. In addition, a special camera will monitor whether the car has crossed the road lane without turning on the direction indicator. In the latter case, an audible warning will sound. Automatic switching from high beam to low beam will also be provided.
Wiring diagrams are a graphical representation of the sequence and order of connecting various devices, their relationship with other modules, etc. They describe in detail and present layouts of individual elements of electrical wiring, installation locations of relays, operating units, etc. Factory graphic wiring diagrams of cars Renault Scenic of the first generation contains information about the location on the car body of the so-called mass points, the number of which is 14 units, routes for laying electrical harnesses, etc.
A separate section is a complete decoding of all abbreviations and markings of electrical circuits, which helps to navigate the graphs. The fact is that on the wiring diagram of each individual module, any part or individual unit has its own unique digital or letter coding. And, if necessary, it is possible to identify and determine the accessory or article number of a particular part.
For example, the heated rear window switch is labeled with code 128, and the interior temperature sensor is labeled with 18.
It should be noted that the schematic wiring diagram of cars of the described brand, which are produced only in France, may differ from the schemes of cars that are produced outside of France. So, the symbol “1” in the wiring diagram of the first generation Scenic model denotes the dashboard only for cars made in France. Abbreviations are usually used to identify individual components or modules of a vehicle. Examples include abbreviations such as I-TAFEL, which is the identifier for the dashboard, or KA, which stands for air conditioning. The presence of a schematic electrical diagram for the owner of a Scenic car is important not only when contacting a non-specialized service station, but also for performing independent work on repairing electrical equipment, installing and installing additional equipment and devices, replacing wiring, etc. will reduce the overall operating time and ensure the maximum level of safety during the further operation of the vehicle.
When buying a Scenic car, detailed diagrams are not included as mandatory documentation for it, however, many printing houses publish certified publications that contain detailed electrical diagrams of various car models. In this case, it is important to select schemes in accordance with the year of manufacture of the car, since even one model released a year later can have significant differences.

Features of the electrical circuit of the described car model
The electrical circuit of the first generation Renault Scenic car was based on the principles of operation of electrical devices and devices of many cars of the model range of that time. Detailed information materials contain the principles of electrical connections, their sequence and rules for the introduction of new equipment and control devices.
The most common wiring problems in the following modules are:
- Fog lights. Most of the problems were associated with the frequent failure of light bulbs due to insufficient sealing of the fog lights and the formation of condensation, which led to the short circuit of this wiring line;
- Electric drive of rear-view mirrors. In this case, there were frequent problems with the constant bending of the wire and its subsequent damage;
- Electric windows;
- Heating and ventilation system equipment. In this case, it should be noted that the largest number of breakdowns was recorded in models that were equipped with an air conditioning system. In models without air conditioners, problems with the fan drive were much less common;
- Indicators and devices signaling about breakdowns. First of all, we are talking about an oil pressure indicator, with which many owners of the first generation of the Renault Scenic model had numerous problems, with its poor-quality operation or intermittent functioning;
- Generator and working drive.
