Road Test

Versatile MPV targetted at family motoring with the choice of five seats and more luggage space or seven with the focus on passengers. Four trim levels: Authentique, Expression, Dynamique and Privilege. Modernised styling with front sports grille, low bumper, wide air intake and fog lamps toward the outside of the car. Seven engines with four diesels and three petrols, ranging in power from 86 up to the new 150hp 2.0 dCi offering smooth performance with low fuel consumption. The 2.0 dCi 150 engine can be specified with six-speed automatic transmission and joins the 1.9 dCi 130 FAP (particulate filter) Auto, giving Grand ScÚnic its first-ever diesel automatics. Plenty of space and flexibility the Grand ScÚnic offers that little bit more.
