New Renault Scenic Conquest

Published Date: 11th Mar 2007

Making its debut at the 2007 Geneva Motor Show, Scenic Conquest is a car aimed at a wide range of customers, including those with a passion for leisure pursuits and the great outdoors.

The new addition to the Scenic range is sure to have a broad appeal through its fusion of MPV practicality and low running costs, allied to the rugged look and greater on-road capability of an SUV.

Let’s be clear. Scenic Conquest is not trying to be a 4x4 SUV with off-road ability, as Renault will launch an SUV in 2008 based on its Koleos Concept. Countryside dwellers using unmade or poorly maintained roads and city slickers tackling giant potholes and speed bumps need the raised driving position and ride height with stronger suspension, but not the 4x4 transmission that comes with an SUV.

Scenic Conquest provides this increased level of on-road ability without the weight penalty, fuel economy reduction and CO 2 emission increase associated with SUVs. If you really don’t need four-wheel drive but like all the other abilities of an SUV then Scenic Conquest could be the answer, especially as it costs several thousand pounds less than equivalent-sized and equipped SUVs like the Land Rover Freelander and Toyota RAV4.

You couldn’t mistake Scenic Conquest for any other member of the Scenic range. Conquest is front wheel drive, yet nevertheless, will be able to take the rough with the smooth as its chassis has been adapted to cope with life away from the beaten track.

Priced from £16,765 to £18,965, the Scenic Conquest will be available to order from the beginning of June 2007 and will be offered in a wide range of colours, one of which will be exclusive to this model – Cayenne Orange. Scenic Conquest is available with a choice of two economical petrol and two diesel engines, ranging in power from 106hp to 136hp. All versions come with six-speed manual transmission as standard.
